Mr. Freeze
George Sanders

George Sanders was the first of three people to play Mr. Freeze on Batman. He was born in St. Petersburg, Russia in 1906. His family fled from England because of the Bolshevik Revolution. He graduated from college and worked for a while at a tobacco company in Argentina. He then started on stage and debuted on the screens in the 1936 film “Find the Lady.” Shortly after his role in “The Man Who Could Work Miracles,” he traveled to Hollywood where he signed a contract with Fox. He received a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his role as the acerbic drama critic in “All About Eve” (1950). Sanders had been married to both sisters Zsa Zsa Gabor and Magda Gabor. In his later years, one of his last performances worth noting was the 1970’s film “The Kremlin Letter.” He had a total of four marriages, and seven psychiatrists which brought him little comfort in 1972 -- he did himself in with five tubes of Nembutal in a Barcelona hotel. The suicide not read “Dear World: I am leaving because I am bored. I am leaving you with your worries in this sweet cesspool.”
