Who's Almost Who In Knickerbocker Village History: Louis Sorin

Louis Sorin (1893–1961) was born and died in New York, New York. As a young boy he lived at 6 Willett Street which is about a block and a half south (to the right) of the site above and about a mile from KV. He appeared in 15 films between 1929 and 1961. He was also a prolific theatre actor, notably appearing on Broadway in more than 20 productions between 1923 and 1952.
Sorin is perhaps best known to modern audiences for his performances as Roscoe W. Chandler in The Marx Brothers film "Animal Crackers" (a role he also played onstage), and as Mr. Manicotti in the 1956 Honeymooners episode "Mama Loves Mambo".
