A graduate of the Sorbonne, Czech actor Charles Korvin held down a variety of show business jobs in Europe (including a tenure as a documentary cameraman) before making his American film debut in the title role of Enter Arsene Lupin (1944). Korvin was blessed with dazzling handsomeness and deep-set eyes, so it isn't surprising that Hollywood hoped to turn him into a romantic lead. Many of his films were of the programmer variety, notably The Killer That Stalked New York (1950) and Sangaree (1953), and most of these films exploited his exotic accent by casting Korvin as charming rogues. Despite his many movie appearances, Korvin's best-remembered role was a lengthy uncredited appearance as a sexy mambo instructor on the 1956 Honeymooners TV episode "Mama Loves Mambo." Before easing into character roles, Charles Korvin had one last starring stint in the British-American syndicated TV adventure Interpol Calling (1959).
