Gene Barry (born Eugene Klass, June 14, 1919 December 9, 2009) was an American stage, screen, and television actor. Barry is best remembered for his leading roles in the films The Atomic City (1952) and The War of The Worlds (1953) and for his portrayal of the title characters in the TV series Bat Masterson and Burke's Law, among many roles.


Samuel Wanamaker, CBE (born Wattenmacker; June 14, 1919 December 18, 1993) was an American actor and director who moved to the UK, after becoming fearful of being blacklisted in Hollywood due to his communist sympathies.

He is credited as the person most responsible for saving The Rose Theatre (1988+), which led to the modern recreation of Shakespeare's Globe Theatre in London, where he is commemorated in the name of the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, the site's second theatre.
