Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. John Kroll (ca. 1926 - 8 June 2000) - known as Jack Kroll - was an award-winning Newsweek drama and film critic. His career spanned 37 years - more than half the publication's existence. Kroll was born in Manhattan. His mother was an Earl Carroll showgirl and his father, Lester Kroll, was a radio personality with the radio name "John J. Anthony" ("Mr. Anthony") on the long-running radio program The Goodwill Hour. Lester took this pseudonym from his two sons' given names: John (Jack) and Anthony. Kroll spent two years in the U.S. Army during the Korean War. He later attended City College of New York, graduating in 1954. He also earned a master's degree in English and comparative literature. A skilled writer adept at several forms of journalism, he joined Newsweek as an associate arts editor in 1963.show more
