Arthur O'Connell was born on March 29, 1908, in New York, New York. Arthur O'Connell passed away on May 18, 1981, in Woodland Hills, California, after losing his fight to Alzheimer's disease.

O'Connell made his stage debut in the mid 1930's. Meanwhile, Arthur managed to come into contact with Orson Welles' Mercury Theatre which resulted in Arthur O'Connell landing several small roles. He was in the final scenes of 1941's classic Citizen Kane, where O'Connell starred as the reporter.

Eventually O'Connell would return to Broadway where he gave successful performances of Shakespeare's great tragic antiheroes; Hamlet and Macbeth.

O'Connell's first Oscar nomination came in 1956. He was nominated for the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for his performance in the film, Picnic. Three years later, Arthur would win his second Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor, for his performance in the 1959 film Anatomy of a Murder.

Arthur was a popular guest star on all the major shows of the 1970s. Unfortunately, O'Connell was forced to curtail his work load due to Alzheimer's disease.

At the time of his death in 1981, despite his health issues, O'Connell was appearing frequently in toothpaste commercials.
