Life Story of Jack Warden

Jack Warden was born John Warden Lebzelter, Jr. on September 18, 1920 in Newark, New Jersey, to Laura M. (Costello) and John Warden Lebzelter.

The purses were poor, so he soon left the ring and worked as a bouncer at a night club. He also worked as a lifeguard before signing up with the U.S. Navy in 1938.

Jack Warden in Der Himmel kann warten (1978)

Served in the US Navy from 1938-41, then joined the Merchant Marine as water tender in the engine room but disliked convoy duty because of Axis aircraft attacks and his location three decks below the main deck--this, as he says, ended his "romance with the life of a sailor". He left the Merchant Marine in 1942, joined the US Army and became a platoon sergeant and parachute jump master in the 101st Airborne. Fought in the Battle of the Bulge. While hospitalized with a leg injury sustained in a jump, he read a play written by Clifford Odets and decided to become an actor.
