Rod Steiger Remembered
by Betty Jo Tucker

Movie Addict HQ pays tribute to legendary actor Rod Steiger on August 14th with a visit from actress Joan Benedict Steiger, who drops by to reminisce about her late husband’s remarkable film career. Rod won a well-deserved Best Actor Oscar for In the Heat of the Night and received two other Academy Award nominations for his memorable work in The Pawnbroker and On the Waterfront. Among his other films are such quality productions as Dr. Zhivago, The Chosen, Shiloh, The Harder They Fall, Waterloo, W.C. Fields and Me, Al Capone and Oklahoma!    

Joan Benedict Steiger also has extensive acting experience in films, on stage and in television. Her movie credits include starring roles opposite Rod in A Month of Sundays and The Flying Dutchman as well as appearances in The Prize Fighter, The Theory of Everything, and Dead Border. Among Joan’s stage credits are roles in productions like Promises, PromisesThe Beauty Queen of Leenane, The Octette Bridge Club, The Traveling Lady, The Mind with the Dirty Man, Richard III, Dr. Faustus, and her one-woman show Leona, in which she received rave reviews for her portrayal of hotelier Leona Helmsley.

Joan’s TV career began when she was a member of the original ensemble of The Steve Allen Show, followed by roles on several daytime dramas and series guest appearances. Her other television credits include such diverse shows as Days of Our Lives, General Hospital, Candid Camera, and Dollhouse. Clearly, Joan has amassed a remarkable body of work on stage, screen and television in roles covering the classical and contemporary, the drama and the musical.
