Biography
Beginning his professional career in vaudeville, actor Glenn Anders made his legitimate New York debut in Just Around the Corner in 1919. A distinguished presence on Broadway for three decades, Anders appeared in the original productions of Sidney Howard's They Knew What They Wanted (1924) and Eugene O'Neill's Strange Interlude (1928). Making an auspicious film debut as the acrobat Leon in D.W. Griffith's Sally of the Sawdust (1925), Anders would only make the occasional screen appearance thereafter, most notably as Rose Hobart's husband in the Bob Hope farce Nothing But the Truth (1941) and as the lawyer George Grisby in Orson Welles' The Lady from Shanghai (1948). Retired to Guadalajara, Mexico, the veteran actor returned to the United States in the late '70s and died at the Actors' Home in Englewood, NJ.
