Tom Conway - Rotten Tomatoes

Tom Conway



Born in St. Petersburg, Russia, Tom Conway was the son of a British rope manufacturer. After the Bolshevik revolution, Conway's family returned to England, where he attended a succession of boarding schools before graduating from Brighton college. Aimlessly wandering from job to job, Conway was working as a rancher when his older brother, George Sanders, achieved success as a film actor. Deciding this might be suitable work for himself, Conway gleaned some stage experience in a Manchester repertory company. Upon arriving in Hollywood in 1940, Conway was taken under the wing of brother George, who helped him find film work. When George quit the Falcon "B"-picture series at RKO in 1941, he recommended Tom as his replacement; the transition was cleverly handled in The Falcon's Brother (1942), with Tom taking over after George had been "killed." Achieving popularity as the Falcon, Conway continued in private-detective roles, playing Sherlock Holmes on radio and Mark Sabre on television. Though he reportedly amassed a fortune in excess of one million dollars during his Hollywood years, personal problems sent Conway into a downward spiral. Tom Conway died in 1967 at the age of 63; his brother George Sanders committed suicide five years later.
