With a career that spanned from the 1960s to the new millennium, Shmuel Wolf was a poster boy for perseverance. Born in Budapest, Shmuel survived the Holocaust by emigrating from Hungary to Israel. Making the most of his past experiences and future opportunities, he turned to acting. After training with theater director Nola Chilton, Wolf could be seen on stage (It Comes Around), on film (An Intimate Story), and on TV (Life is Not Everything, Srugim). Through the years, the small screen stud popped up in the television movies Carlos (1971), Sipur Mekomi (1994), and A Woman Called Golda (1982) starring Ingrid Bergman. Sometimes credited as Sámuel Wolf, the international performer appeared in short films (Don Quixote in Jerusalem, Letters to God, Lost and Found) and feature-length flicks (Cats on a Pedal Boat, Electric Blanket, A Matter of Reputation). Yet one needs only to sample Sám’s magnum opus, An American Hippie in Israel (1971), to appreciate his skinematic input. The comedy features Asher Tzarfati, Lily Avidan, Tzila Karney, and Wolf’s nudity! As a disillusioned young man flees civilization for freedom and happiness, he comes upon Shmuel who shows off his acting chops — and bare bod! The un-shy guy bares his chest and bum while having sex in the backseat of a moving convertible. The skintastic act includes views of his balls too! Although Shmuel passed away in 2019, he leaves behind his final performance in the romantic dramedy Mita Tova (2014), which coincidentally translates to The Farewell Party. Farewell, Mr. Wolf!
