Baruch Lumet (Burech Lumet; 16 September 1898 – 8 February 1992) was an American actor best known for his work in the Yiddish theatre.
|Died||February 8, 1992 93)(aged|
Lumet was born in Warsaw, Russian Empire, to a Yiddish-speaking Jewish family. He immigrated to the United States with his wife Eugenia Gitl Lumet (née Wermus) and daughter Felicia (1920–1980) in 1922, where his son, film director Sidney Lumet (1924–2011) was born.
Although he appeared alongside his son in the film ...One Third of a Nation... in 1939, the elder Lumet made few film appearances, though he played character roles in two of Sidney's films from the 1960s, The Pawnbroker (1964) and The Group (1966). He also appeared in Woody Allen's comedy Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex But Were Afraid to Ask, improbably cast as an elderly rabbi with a bondage fetish.
