Tom Ewell
(April 29, 1909 - September 12, 1994)

Tom Ewell was an American actor. Born Samuel Yewell Tompkins in Owensboro, Kentucky. Ewell began acting in summer stock in 1928 with Don Ameche, before moving to New York in 1931. He enrolled in the Actors Studio alongside classmates Montgomery Clift and Karl Malden.

His most successful and arguably most identifiable role came in the 1955 film The Seven Year Itch with Marilyn Monroe. The scene of Ewell slyly admiring Monroe as she stood over a subway grate with her skirt billowing has become one of the most iconic moments in film.

Ewell enjoyed other film successes, including The Lieutenant Wore Skirts with Sheree North and The Girl Can't Help It (both 1956) opposite Jayne Mansfield. In The Girl Can't Help It, sultry Julie London appears as a mirage to Tom Miller (Ewell) singing her signature song, Cry Me A River.

However, as his film and theater careers seemed to have reached their peaks, he turned his attention to television. Over several years he played guest roles in numerous series, and received an Emmy Award nomination for his continuing role in the television series Baretta, with Ewell commenting that working on that series had given him greater pleasure than any project he had ever worked on. His final acting performance was in a 1986 episode of Murder, She Wrote.
