Steven Hill
Television Star. Mission Impossible and Law and Order. Born February 24, 1922 in Seattle, Washington, USA Died August 23, 2016 in Manhattan, New York City, New York, USA (several illnesses) Birth Name Solomon Krakovsky Height 5' 11½" (1.82 m) Born in Seattle, Washington, in 1922, as Solomon Krakovsky, to Russian Jewish immigrants, Hill became interested in the theater as a little boy. After graduation from high school, he served in the Naval Reserve (1940-44). From there, he worked alongside a young, unknown star Marlon Brando in "A Flag is Born." His real acting debut came about in 1950, when he co-starred opposite Hedy Lamarr in A Lady Without Passport (1950), and his career took off from there. For the rest of the 1950s and 1960s, he co-starred in B-movies such as: The Goddess (1958), Kiss Her Goodbye (1959), A Child Is Waiting (1963), The Slender Thread (1965). Hill also became a leading character actor guest-starring in a wide variety of shows such as: Schlitz Playhouse (1951), Danger (1950), Playwrights '56 (1955), Studio One in Hollywood (1948), Playhouse 90 (1956), Naked City (1958), Espionage (1963), Dr. Kildare (1961), Ben Casey (1961), among many others. Another guest-starring role on Rawhide (1959), led him to star on Mission: Impossible (1966). Though the series lasted seven seasons, Hill was not pleased with his role because he refused to abide by the production schedule that required working on Saturday, the Jewish Sabbath, being an Orthodox Jew. Hill was fired after 1 season, and was replaced in the series by Peter Graves. After his firing, he went on a sabbatical from acting, to focus on selling homes in real estate, hence he moved to New York. After his long absence from acting, he returned to the small screen with the TV mini-series, King (1978). The 1980s saw Hill returning to the box office, co-starring in such blockbuster films such as: It's My Turn (1980), opposite Jill Clayburgh and Michael Douglas, Eyewitness (1981), Yentl (1983), Garbo Talks (1984), opposite Anne Bancroft and Carrie Fisher, On Valentine's Day (1986), and the sequel, Courtship (1987), he played a Mafia Don in Arnold Schwarzenegger's another blockbuster film, Raw Deal (1986), then, in a blockbuster ten movie Running on Empty (1988), followed by The Boost (1988), White Palace (1990), and one of the last films, Billy Bathgate (1991). In the 1990s, at 68, after a 23-year-absence from the small screen, he reestablished his career, as the last minute replacement for a starring role in Law & Order (1990), where he played the role of a pragmatic District Attorney, Adam Schiff, a character whom everyone grew to love. Despite not appearing in the pilot episode of the series, he quickly became one of Hollywood's likable and bankable stars, where he often had scenes, that were filmed, only in court. His co-stars on the show consisted of actors who have also made bankable names like Hill himself like Chris Noth, and S. Epatha Merkerson, Sam Waterston, and newcomers Jill Hennessy and Benjamin Bratt. On Law & Order (1990) he was also nominated for Emmies twice, but did not win. The entire cast was shocked when, in 2000, he left his role to enjoy his retirement. Before then, the entire cast appeared with Hill on Larry King Live (1985), to say goodbye to a legendary star. Spouse (2) Rachel Schenker (1967 - 23 August 2016) ( his death) ( 5 children) Selma Stern (8 April 1951 - 1964) ( divorced) ( 4 children) Often tells stories about his life as an Orthodox Jew Usually played roles that are both parental and authority figures His pragmatic voice Trivia (37) He was one of the few Orthodox Jewish actors working for much of his career. He was a founding member of Lee Strasberg's Actor's Studio Left the cast of Mission: Impossible (1966) after one season because, as an Orthodox Jew, he was unwilling to abide by the show's production schedule. (That would have required him to work on the Jewish Sabbath.) Was a founding member of the Actor's Studio and, as such, knew and worked with Marlon Brando, Montgomery Clift and Gene Hackman before they became famous. Is an alumnus of Sigma Alpha Mu Fraternity. Played the Manhattan District Attorney in both Legal Eagles (1986) and Law & Order (1990). He rarely shared any scenes with any of the actors who played cops on Law & Order (1990). Left acting from 1967 to 1978. His son-in-law is a high school teacher in Manhattan, New York City. Has appeared with Roscoe Lee Browne in two different, completely unrelated productions in which he played the New York County District Attorney: Legal Eagles (1986) and Law & Order (1990). Although he and Jerry Orbach appeared in 177 episodes of Law & Order (1990) and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Entitled (2000) together, they only appeared on screen together twice: during one brief scene in the Law & Order: Corruption (1996) and in the opening scene of the episode Refuge Pt. 2 (#9.24. Was considered for the role of Dr.Sam Loomis in Halloween (1978). Best known by the public for his starring role as D.A. Adam Schiff on Law & Order (1990). Appeared in every episode of Law & Order (1990), for the first ten seasons, except one, until his retirement in 2000. The series pilot, Law & Order: Everybody's Favorite Bagman (1990), was filmed in 1988 and starred Roy Thinnes as the district attorney. It was neither aired nor picked up for a series at that time. It first aired as episode 6 in the first season. When he departed from his role on Law & Order (1990), he was the longest-running cast member. Was a spokesperson for T.D. Waterhouse, alongside his Law & Order (1990), co-star Sam Waterston, in the 1990s. Adam Schiff, his character from Law & Order (1990), was loosely based on the real former district attorney of New York, Robert Morgenthau, and it is reported that Morgenthau was a fan of the character. Moved to a religious community in Rockland County, New York, in 1967. Made a comeback with the television series at 68. Before he returned to acting, he was working as a real estate agent. Before he was a successful actor, he used to work in stage productions. Re-enlisted in the Navy between 1952 and 1954, before he seriously returned to acting. Served 4 years in the Naval Reserve. Of Russian immigrants. Graduated from West Seattle High School in Seattle, Washington, in 1940. Met Martin Landau at the Actors' Studio (when he studied there). Martin Landau eventually landed a role opposite Hill on Mission: Impossible (1966), where he played Rollin Hand for 3 seasons. Was stricken with a virus the night of a sold out performance for the Masters Children's Center of Dobbs Ferry. As a result, the producers decided to cancel the performance just as the curtain was about to go up. [12 April 1961]. Began acting at age 24. When he was a little boy he was interested in the theater, after his sister entered a talent contest. After guest-starring on Rawhide (1959), producer Bruce Geller recruited him to play the lead role of what would become Mission: Impossible (1966), which was based on his character's squad. Good friends with Julie Harris, Sydney Pollack, Anne Bancroft, Albert Paulsen, Lee Grant, Sam Waterston and Marlon Brando. He had nine children.

Acting mentor and friends of Jill Hennessy and Benjamin Bratt. He died less than a month before the 50th anniversary of Mission: Impossible (1966), in which he originally starred as the protagonist Dan Briggs. He was a lifelong liberal Democrat. Personal Quotes (5) I felt I had to be brash to make my mark. In this business you don't make out application forms - you have to make an instant impression. I had to do it over and over again before I was finally recognized. I think probably because of all years and time that has gone by, I enjoy my work far more than I ever did before. Certainly more than I did in my early years when it took a lot of effort to do the best job I wanted to do. Now it is more of a joy and much more exciting. I guess it's because what I'm doing in my work today is an accumulation of all the blood, sweat and tears went through in this business. [on his popularity of playing the seventy-something Adam Schiff on Law & Order (1990)] There's a certain positive statement in this show. So much is negative today. The positive must be stated to rescue us from pandemonium. To me, it lies in, that principle: Law & Order. [in 1996] But our stories are about real-life, and that's how life is today. We plea bargain all over the place. See also

6. John 4 HILL
Birth: 18 Mar 1759 in Kingston, Ulster Co, NY
Death: 25 Aug 1849 in Cayuta TWP., Chemung (now Schuyler) Co, NY
John's elder brother Caleb served in the Revolution. Born 1759, there is good enough reason to think John may have also. I do not know what document it is but one found at HeritageQuest with # S43683, 1 of 5 -- no data, just name John Hill, service: New York.

Family moved first from Dutchess Co to Ulster, apparently later from Kingston to Wallkill, Ulster Co, NY ~1765-9 (later Wallkill Town(ship) Orange Co. Not the same as Ulster Co's village of Wallkill; County line changes. Kingston may have been Church town thus church records, rather than residence.

(near brother Caleb) John age over 45 + two boys and two girls under 10 and one girl between the ages of 16 and 25; woman over 26 under 45. John Sr lives near Tilton, also at Wallkill. There should be a 3rd daughter but John's 1849 will names only 2 - one deceased(?) or a female not-daughter.

Family lore states wife #1 was Sarah COLYER, spelled out precisely and pronounced coal-yr, said a Dutch name, per grandmother Violet Mae HILL about 1948-9. Same 1940s informant also gave the next generation back (and more), and that John moved to what would be Chemung from around Goshen, Sullivan County. Violet also stated that Sarah Sally THOMAS, by name, raised Sacket. The only likely error there may be that it was the McKinney-Cook side who migrated from Goshen - which could be my own mistaken recall who did which.

Corroboration - John Hill Jr m. Sarah Colyer 1782.

per Elaine Sunde:
"In NY Marriages Previous to 1784 (Albany: Weed Parsons & Co, 1860) Sarah Colyer and John Hill Jr. are listed as being married August 5, 1782, having posted a marriage bond. The volume indicates that marriage licenses were issued from the Provincial Secretary's office in exchange for Penal sum of 1,500 that "no lawful let

HILL FAMILY SOURCE NOTES:

NOTES ON DEBORAH HILL:
PER ROOTSWEB MESSAGE FROM K. POWELL:
that Deb's brother Morris Hill's (this is getting tricky) son Benjamin O Hill's widow Eliza Newman remarried Willis B Hargrave, son of Seth (I'm told; unverified for myself). This second set of children for Eliza includes a William Willis Hargrave. The 2 married 1878 and combined familes and made more ...AND..... Deborah's brothers (or half-brothers) Joseph and Morris (and maybe Abner too) HILL settled at Carmi late 1820s. Morris' son Benjamin O. HILL married Eliza NEWMAN. The HILL sibling's father was John of Tioga (later Chemung) Co, NY. Her brothers (half-brothers?) Morris married Caroline PERRYMAN 1837 Carmi, White Co, IL. Next came brother Joseph and NY-born wife Mary Ann WEAVER with 3 children - their first IL-born was Fanny b. 1842 Carmi, White Co, IL.
It appears that 2nd John's children were Anna (Fanny?), Hugh, Deborah, and Sacket HILL (my ancestor) by Sarah COLYER who remained in NY. Next wife is Sallie (Sarah?) THOMAS and sons Joseph, Abner, and Morris. No children are known with 3rd wife Elizabeth UNKN.
HILL offspring remaining at Chemung Co NY were Hugh who married Calista/Celesta ELLIS, Sacket who married Elizabeth SHOEMAKER/SCHOONMAKER, and Anna. Anna *may likely be* Fanny, who married Peter WESTBROOK.
