Harvey Keitel. Born in New York in 1939. He began by trodding the boards of New York's small theaters. His debut as a film actor came with "Who's That Knocking at My Door" from 1968. Through the 1980s, Harvey Keitel appeared in a number of European films - Italian, French and Spanish. However, he had his definitive breakthrough in the 1990s, when he appeared in such films as "Thelma and Louise," "Bugsy" and "Reservoir Dogs".
Harvey Keitel does not appear in mainstream movies but more intellectual, artistically-challenging films - including the Academy Award-winning "The Piano" (1993) and Paul Auster's "Smoke" and "Blue in the Face" (1995). Among his other successful films may be mentioned "Pulp Fiction" (1994), "From Dusk till Dawn" (1996), and "Holy Smoke" (1999).
