From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Frank Aletter (January 14, 1926; Queens, New York – May 13, 2009; Tarzana, California) was an American stage, film, and television actor.

During the 1950s Aletter appeared on Broadway in Bells Are Ringing, Time Limit, and Wish You Were Here.[1] However he soon moved on to a prolific television career, appearing as a guest on numerous shows between 1956 and 1988.

Aletter starred in three programs in the 1960s. Bringing Up Buddy, a CBS sitcom during the 1960-1961 season, featured Aletter with Enid Markey and Doro Merande, who portrayed his overprotective spinster aunts to Aletter's character, Buddy Flower, a bachelor stockbroker. Aletter's first wife, Lee Meriwether, a former Miss America, guest starred in one of the episodes.

After Bringing Up Buddy, Aletter guest starred in ABC's crime drama Target: The Corruptors!, CBS's anthology The Lloyd Bridges Show, and NBC's medical drama The Eleventh Hour.

In the 1964-1965 season, Aletter appeared in The Cara Williams Show, with Cara Williams as his television wife. The two worked at the same company in violation of policy that employees could not marry each other and maintain their employment. The show hence focused on how they kept their marriage secret.

Aletter also appeared in It's About Time, a Sherwood Schwartz series on CBS in 1966-1967. In the fall of 1970, he had a supporting role in the NBC sitcom Nancy.

His movie roles include Mister Roberts, Tora! Tora! Tora!, and Disney's A Tiger Walks.[2]

Along with his acting work, Aletter was involved with Screen Actors Guild, having been elected as a vice president in 1987.[3]
