Albert Salmi

While the name Albert Salmi might not ring a bell, his face looks awfully familiar.

That’s because Albert was in dozens of films and hundreds of TV shows. With his tall, brawny physique and his ability to intimidate, he was most often cast as the bad guy or the authority figure.

Every now and then, though, a casting director got a bit more creative and put Albert into a more complex role – one in which a bad guy becomes good, a good guy is thought to be bad, or a plain ordinary guy like us did something illegal, but for a good reason.

That’s where Albert shone.

A method actor taught by Lee Strasberg himself, Albert was able to produce any emotion necessary to tell us a very effective story. And that was Albert’s mission – to teach us a valuable life-lesson and make us better people.

But guess what?

Albert Salmi was not the bad guy many viewers thought he was. Quite the opposite, in fact. He was more victim than villain.

The biography of Albert Salmi, Spotlights & Shadows: The Albert Salmi Story, was published February 15, 2004 by BearManor Media. Classic Images magazine named Spotlights & Shadows “Book of the Year – 2004”.

The second edition, with two more chapters and the memories of more of his friends, was published in 2010.

On Aug. 4, 2010, BearManor Media released Spotlights & Shadows: The Albert Salmi Story to the Amazon Kindle.

Spotlights & Shadows: The Albert Salmi Story was released to audiobook on Feb. 15, 2012. Read by fellow author Michael Hoctor, the unabridged audiobook contains new information on Albert Salmi and runs 7 hours and 58 minutes.
