Commentary
Scott Merrill (July 14, 1918-June 19, 2001) was born in Baltimore, MD. He was an actor, known for “Thriller” (1960) and “New York Confidential” (1959). He was nominated for Broadway’s 1956 Tony Award as Best Supporting or Featured Actor (Musical) for “The Threepenny Opera.” Mr. Merrill not only starred with Weill’s widow, Lotte Lenya, who played Jenny in “The Threepenny Opera,” but also appeared with Tallulah Bankhead as Felix da Costa, a shallow European dilettante in “Eugenia,” Randolph Carter’s 1957 Broadway adaptation of the Henry James novel “The Europeans.” Mr. Merrill initially attracted notice in shows like “Bloomer Girl,” “Paint Your Wagon” and a revival of “Pal Joey.” He was first seen in New York in 1941 in “Lady in the Dark,” which starred Gertrude Lawrence, Danny Kaye, and Victor Mature. Other credits included “Love Life,” “Small Wonder,” Oklahoma!” and a 1955 musical adaptation of “Seventh Heaven.”
