Other starring roles included Dark Victory (1939) and Wilson (1944). She aged into distinguished character roles, as in The Pawnbroker (1964), Harry and Tonto (1974) and Arthur (1981).

He first appeared in stock and on Broadway before breaking into films (with the help of Joel McCrea) in the early 1940s.

He was a founder of the Group Theater (1931-1937), which performed socially relevant works. When he entered film, Carnovsky again preferred movies with a political viewpoint, such as The Life of Emile Zola (1937) and the anti-Nazi Edge of Darkness (1943). He and his wife Phoebe Brand were blacklisted from Hollywood in the 1950s, but remained active on stage, especially in the American Shakespeare Festival, Stratford, Connecticut.
