Director Jack Garfein started his career acting and directing stage productions. Born in Mukaccvo, Czechoslovakia, young Garfein survived a stay in the Auschwitz concentration camp during WW II. In 1945, he emigrated to the U.S. and studied at the New School for Social Research before going to the theater. In 1953, he made his Broadway debut as a director with End as a Man. The following year he became part of the Actors Studio. Garfein only made two films, one, The Strange One (1957), was an adaptation of End as a Man and earned him considerable critical acclaim. The other Something Wild (1961) featured his first wife Carroll Baker and didn't do quite as well. In addition to his film and stage work, Garfein has directed television shows.
