Alan Furlan (13 April 1920 – 14 May 1997) was an Italian-American actor.


Born Aleardo Furlan in Farla, in the North Friuli region of Italy, Furlan acted in films in Europe and the United States, on Broadway and in commercials.[1]

On Broadway he appeared in productions such as Holiday for Lovers (1957), The Best House in Naples (1956), Idiot's Delight (1951)[2] and Romeo and Juliet (1951) starring Olivia de Havilland.[3] In the late 1940s, he performed in Chicago area summer stock theaters with actors such as Richard Kiley.[4]

Furlan played the role of Giancarlo in the Italian film Donatella (1956)[5] which was selected for competition at the Berlin Film Festival.[6] He appeared in numerous live broadcast anthology drama television series with lead roles in episodes of Police Call,[7][8] one of the top grossing television series released in 1955,[9] as well as a supporting role in the Producers' Showcase production (1957) of the melodramatic comedic Broadway play The Great Sebastians, starring Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne [10] and the Armstrong Circle Theatre episode The Sound of Violence: The Jukebox Racket (1959).[11]

He toured with Mae West as her Latin lover in Come On Up, Ring Twice and performed in the TV version of the Moon and Sixpence with Laurence Olivier (1959).[12]

Furlan later became the mentor of Wisconsin's Sunset Playhouse [13] where he remained artistic director for 28 years.
