Alan Arkin Movie List

Alan Arkin is a celebrity actor who began his professional performing career in 1954 with the folk music group “The Tarriers.” At the same time he was a struggling actor and took any odd jobs that he could. His first film role came in 1957 and he made his off-Broadway stage debut not long after. In 1961 he landed his first Broadway role, writing lyrics, and in 1963 he landed his first starring role which led to a Tony Award. Not long after he earned his first Academy Award nomination, for his role in the film “The Russians are Coming! The Russians are Coming!” and this led to more important roles. He was nominated for an Oscar again in 1969, but had to wait until 2007 before he actually won an Academy Award! A further nomination in 2013 shows that he has lost none of the talent that was honed on the stage all those years ago. The following is a list of movies that Alan Arkin has acted in during his career so far.
