Actor. For five decades he was a versatile character performer, best remembered for his role as the gangster Frank Nitti on the 1960s TV series "The Untouchables". In 1941, he made his first professional appearance in the Broadway production "Arsenic and Old Lace" with Boris Karloff, which ran until 1945. He then made his film debut in the Marx Brothers film "Love Happy" (1949), followed by such credits as "The Buccaneer" (1958), "Curse of the Undead" (1959), "The Tower of London" (1962), "Piranha" (1978) and "Ernest Goes to Splash Mountain" (1989). His other television credits included "Bonanza", "Mannix", "Perry Mason", "The Lucy Show", Peyton Place", "Police Woman" and "The Fall Guy". After he retired in 1989, he operated a dinner theatre called "Frank Nitti's Place" in Scottsdale, Arizona and appeared in a few stage productions at the College of Santa Fe, New Mexico. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
