Snitz Edwards (January 1, 1868 (some sources state 1862) – May 1, 1937) was a character actor of the early years of the silent film era into the 1930s.
Born Edward Neumann into a Jewish household on New Year's Day, 1868 in Budapest, Hungary (then, part of the Austro-Hungarian empire), Edwards emigrated to the United States and became a very successful Broadway stage actor during the early twentieth century. His first show was the musical comedy Little Red Riding Hood which opened on January 8, 1900.
He often appeared in the first decade of the 20th-century on Broadway in productions for such prominent stage directors as Arthur Hammerstein and Charles Frohman. He traveled with touring companies across the United States and in South America. On one trip, the company manager absconded with the box office receipts, leaving Snitz and the rest of the marooned troupers to find their way across Panama to catch a steam ship back to New York. In later years, Snitz told of touring cow towns in the American West, where boarding houses had signs saying Jews, Indians and Irish were acceptable, but not actors.
