He grew up in poverty in New York City and joined the Group Theatre in the early 1930s. After being signed by Warner Bros in 1937, he earned Academy Award nominations for his performances in Four Daughters and Body and Soul. Unfortunately, Garfield's career was cut short after he refused to testify before the U.S. Congressional House Committee on Un-American Activities and denied any alleged communist affiliations.
