Bersoff died Tuesday night at a rehab center in San Luis Obispe, California, the actress’ son told The Hollywood Reporter
at Half a joke, half serious. We saw Billy Wilder Persov as a gangster nicknamed Mały Bonaparte, in “on the sidewalks” Elia Kazan played a taxi driver in an unforgettable scene between Marlon Brando and Rod Steiger.
He created the most significant on-screen performance in Barbra Streisand’s musical drama “Intel”, in which he played the father of the title character – a young and very talented girl who revolts against the orthodox tradition that denies women education. Barbra Streisand chose Bersov to be her father due to the Jewish origin of the actor – he was born in Jerusalem, and moved to the United States with his family at the age of ten.
Among the roles of Persoff’s screen, serial productions occupy an important place – the actor appeared, among others, in “Twilight Zone”, “Untouchables” and “Mission: Impossible”.
We can also watch the actor, among others, in Martin Scorsese’s The Last Temptation of Christ and the comedy “Twins.” Persov’s final role remained in the 1999 film “4 Faces”.
Then the actor decided to retire, concentrating on painting.
“It’s been an amazing 60 years, but at this point in my life I prefer solving problems on canvas, trying to find the beauty and essence of life. I feel so happy to be able to continue my creative life, this time without the stress, frustration and struggle that are so indispensable to an acting career” – He said in 1999.
