Biography by Hal Erickson

Norwegian dancer/choreographer Tutte Lemkow entered the British film industry as a bit player in the early 1950s. Lemkow went on to stage the dance sequences for such otherwise nonmusical efforts as The Captain's Paradise (1953) and Bonjour Tristesse (1958). Most of his screen appearances were confined to eccentric character roles in films like Ben-Hur (1959), The Wrong Box (1967), Theatre of Blood (1973) and Red Sonja (1985). Tutte Lemkow also essayed the non-speaking title role in the 1970 movie version of Fiddler on the Roof.
