Famous Freemason - Aristotelis Savalas

"Who loves ya, baby."

Aristotelis "Telly" Savalas was a charismatic actor who became most famous as the bald, lollypop sucking, police detective, Kojak, who was tough on the outside but gentle inside. Savalas starred in numerous films including ‘The Dirty Dozen’ (1967) with Lee Marvin, 'On Her Majesty's Secret Service' (1969) with the second worst Bond, and ‘Kelly’s Heroes’ (1970) with Clint Eastwood.

Bro. Savalas attended Cobbett Junior High School in Lynn, Massachusetts. He won a spelling bee there in 1934; due to an oversight, he did not receive his prize until 1991, when the school principal and Boston Herald awarded it to him.

As a singer, Savalas released a cover of the Bread song "If", which became a UK No. 1 single in 1975.

His brother, George Savalas, was also an actor and Freemason.
