Allen started his career as a boxer and sports reporter. However, he quickly found he could transfer journalism into acting by performing with naturalism and method-style commitment. The star of “Nashville” and “The Conversation” appeared in some of the best films of the 70’s, often playing talky, anxious characters that were universally authentic.
“I literally never saw a performance by Allen Garfield that wasn’t terrific.”Don Winslow, author.
