PAGE FOUR THE TITUSVILLE HERALD, TITUSVILLE. PENNA. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 1960 'Gangster' (Continued iron- Inside) hcHiso up in Yonkers, N. right the summer thoater. Most of her paying guests wore actors.

That was in IS27. a big year cops and robbers on and they insisted that with my (ace, I couldn't miss." So young McMahon took his bioken nose to a broken down little theater group in Freeport, L. and shared starvation wages with a group of aspiring a cockey young Irishman named Spencer Ti acy. After appearing in "Sailor Beware" and "Three Men on a Horse" Broadway, McMahon traveled to Hollywood in 1936. His first year on the West Coast was a busy one.

He made twenty- six gangster movios. "Jn that year, I was machine- gunned, knifed, beaten up and thrown in the clink more than any other actor in the business," he noted. "They had a standing Joke at one studio. Whenever I was hired, the wardrobe anc pressed a convict's suit for me." The ultimate result of all this hooulumism came while McMahon was vacationing in Chicago in 1937. RD was touring the loop his wife, actress Louise Campbell, when two burly law officers arrested him.

"What's going on?" asked McMahon. "I've seen your face before," said one policeman. "If you're not on our wanted list, I'll miss my guess." There were apologies all around when the officer realized where fce had last seen McMahon a movie house showing the actor in one of his more brutal gangster roles. "Now that I'm a cop," said McMahon. "I should be able to keep out of trouble." McMahon's biggest problem in "Naked City," is keeping up with a hectic shooting schedule.

"Most of the show is done on location in New York," he said, "and the last few weeks we've been racing the clock to make for time lost by the writer's ftroke. One day I spent ten hours running in and out of the bodies of old, rusted cars in a junkyard hi Manhattan. I've got cuts, bruises, and bumps all over my anatomy." "But that's nothing compared to the time we shot a sequence on a pier off the Hudson River during a cold snap. The temperature didn't go above 20 degrees aU day. and there were three or four of us who had to take a few Jeaps in and out of the river.

I darn near froze to death." Which may prove that as tough as life Is for either gansters or law men. it's even more rugged when you're the star of a television series like "Naked City."

Discovered by Lucille Ball while he was playing a leading role in a local little theater production "View From the Bridge," Georgiade became one of the first members of Miss Ball's Desilu Workshop Hollywood talent pool of young professionals. Signed by Desilu on Nov. 25, 1958, to a standard equity contract, other work- permitted to accept outside acting assignments while undergoing the workshop's special training program. During this time, Georgiade appeared in Playhouse 90's "Seven Against the Wall" and "The Killers of Mussolini." Other TV film shosvs included "Chain of Command" ntid "The Untouchables" for Desilu Playhouse. His performance In the latter two-part production made such an impression that when the ABC-TV series was being cast, Georgiade got the role of "Untouchable" Enrico Rossi.

Like his Greek ancestors, Georgiade has always felt, that a sound body and a sound mind were inseparable requisites for success. To this end, he spent hours improving his physical fitness while attending high school. However, the lure for action and travel caused him to quit school in 1948 to join the Army, fibbing about his age. He was a boxer in high school and he continued boxing in the service; by 1952 had won the European heavyweight title for the out the same year, he returned to New York City and did odd jobs until a friend helped him obtain an athletic scholarship at Syracuse University. Because he did not have a high school diploma, he had to take and pass an entrance exam.

In addition to continuing his athletic career, Georgiade majored in sociology and psychology, planning to become a teacher. In his sophomore year he met Anita Khanzadian, also a psychology student, and they were married in Nick's senior year. Meanwhile, he took time out to appear in a college production of "Rose Tattoo," playing the role of Mangia Cavallo. Upon graduation in 1957, instead of doing post-graduate work for his teacher's credentials, Nick decided to give dramatics a try. He studied with Herbert Berghoff and Miles Dickson, then personally staged a showcase production called Group 10 at Steinway Hall, New York, for Broadway producers.
