Ivan Jandl's main claim to fame was his appearance opposite Montgomery Clift in the 1948 film 'The Search' for which Ivan won a Special Academy Award for Best Juvenile Performance. He also won a Golden Globe Special Award in 1948 for Best Juvenile Performance in 'The Search'.
The film 'The Search' was about a small boy who is lost and looking for his mother in war-torn Poland at the end of World War 2. A survivor of Auschwitz he has been rendered mute by his experiences, and is picked up and saved by American soldier Clift. Ivan Jandl's performance was sensitive and mature beyond his years.
