Max 'Slapsie Maxie' Rosenbloom ACTOR


Max Rosenbloom also known as “Slapsie Maxie” was born on September 6th, 1904 in Leonard’s Bridge, Connecticut with the middle name Everitt.  He first developed a career as a professional boxer which later he took into the world of Hollywood.
He was encouraged by his older brother to straighten out his act as a teenager and get involved in the sport of boxing.  In the beginning, he lost the majority of his matches and had to support himself by working other odd jobs such as being a lifeguard and railroad worker.
His boxing career finally took off after he won the New York Heavyweight title in 1930 and Frank Bachman agreed to manage him and by 1932 he turned pro welterweight.  From this point on his next thirty six professional fights were won and he had finally begun to make a name for himself.
When he chose to retire from boxing, with a record of 222-42-31, it was then that Hollywood began to show an interest in him and he began adding a number of film credits to his resume.
Some of his more well known roles were on such features as, “Nothing Sacred” (1937) starring Carole Lombard and Fredric March, “The Kid Comes Back” (1938) starring Wayne Morris and Barton MacLane, “Each Dawn I Die” (1939) starring James Cagney, George Raft, Jane Bryan, Victor Jory and George Bancroft and “Irish Eyes Are Smiling” (1944) starring Monty Woolley, June Haver and Dick Haymes.
Along with a successful acting career he also opened a nightclub in Hollywood known as “Slapsie Maxie’s” and he also published an autobiography titled, 'Fifty Years at Ringside'.
His career as an actor continued performing in a number of nightclubs, additional film roles and even adding such television appearances to his resume as, “The Joe Palooka Story”, “The Honeymooners”, “Run for Your Life", "The Donna Reed Show", "The Munsters", "The Detective", "Playhouse 90" and "I Dream of Jeannie". 

Maxie earned a number of honors throughout his lifetime such as being inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 1993 and being inducted into the World Boxing Hall of Fame in 1985.
He married only once to Muriel Faqider from 1937 through 1945.  As Maxie grew older his health began to suffer from a disease known as Paget’s which resulted from so many injures to his brain during his years boxing career years.  He passed away at the age of seventy one in South Pasadena, California on March 6th, 1976 and his remains are interred at the Valhalla Memorial Park Cemetery in North Hollywood, California.
