Frank Albertson (February 2, 1909 – February 29, 1964) was an American character actor.

Albertson made well over one hundred appearances (1923–1964) in movies and television. He is probably best remembered for his role as Sam Wainwright, the businessman fond of saying "Hee-Haw" in the movie It's a Wonderful Life (1946). He played the wealthy rancher Tom Cassidy at the start of Psycho (1960), who provides the cash that Janet Leigh's character later steals.

Albertson portrayed future U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt in the 1956 episode "Rough Rider" of CBS's My Friend Flicka television series, starring Johnny Washbrook, Gene Evans, Anita Louise, and Frank Ferguson.

For contributions to the motion picture industry, Frank Albertson was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 6758 Hollywood Boulevard.[1]
