Biography for Victor Buono

American actor Robert Aldrich begins on the screen in "What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?" (1962), at the same time fixing the great features of his character of nasty corpulent, with tormented Oedipus, of jovial and grotesque perverts, masking his sadism behind strange minauderies. Caricature of the Sydney Greenstreet and Laird Cregar of yesteryear, we find more or less black or comical variants in "The Strangler" (1964), "Hush, Hush, Sweet Charlotte" (1965), "The Silence" (1966) , "Lo Strangolatore di Vienna" (1971), "The Wrath of God" (1972) and "The Man with Bogart's Face" (1980). He died in Apple Valley, California in 1982.

Victor Buono was an American actor known for his roles in films, television series and theatrical productions. He was born on February 3, 1938 in San Diego, California, and grew up in Long Beach. Buono began his acting career at the age of 18, playing in local theatrical productions before being noticed by Hollywood.

Buono was a versatile actor who could play both comic and dramatic roles. He has played in many films, including The Strangler (1964), Who's Minding the Mint? (1967) and The Wild Country (1970). He was also a member of the regular cast of several television series, notably Batman (1966-1968), The Wild Wild West (1968-1969) and Bonanza (1969-1972).

In addition to his acting work, Buono was also an accomplished musician and a talented composer. He played piano, guitar and harmonica, and wrote many songs for films and television series.

Unfortunately, Buono died prematurely at the age of 43 in 1982, following a heart attack. His short but brilliant career has earned him many awards, including an Emmy Award for his role in the TV series Batman. His performance in the film The Strangler also earned him an appointment to the Golden Globe Awards. Buono remains a highly respected actor admired by film and television fans.

Was highly regarded as a gourmet chef.

Was a frequent guest on talk shows, reciting his own original poetry. Ultimately, in 1971, he recorded some of this poetry on the album "Heavy" on a small label.

Will always be remembered by baby-boomers for his role as the villainous "King Tut" and "Count Manzeppi" on the "Batman" and "Wild, Wild West" TV series, respectively.
