What is contained on this page is only a partial listing of films that Sam Edwards appeared in. There are more to be discovered, either through casting call sheets, old scripts, newspaper notices, or the like, and they will be added as we find them. The films are roughly in chronological order, and a small synopsis plus Sam's role is included where it could be found. Other names are included as a reference of the actors he often worked with. There is one exception to universal listings, such as that shown in his IMDB (Internet Movie DataBase) listing. We can find no evidence that Sam was in the 1951 feature Flying Leathernecks in spite of these listings, so it is not included here. This listing is more inclusive than either IMDB or Updated 07/12/2010.
