“`Warren Berlinger was a character actor with Broadway runs, film, and television credits. He was a familiar face during Television’s Golden Age.

“`Berlinger performed in the original 1946 Broadway production of Annie Get Your Gun, with Ethel Merman, Come Blow Your Horn, and the London stage production of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. Hollywood came calling.

“`The early days of television provided opportunities for Berlinger.  He guest-starred on the original Howdy Doody,  and followed with parts on Kraft Television Theatre and other programs. Later appearances included  Walt Disney’s Wonderful World of ColorHappy DaysThat Girl, ColumboCharlie’s Angels, Emergency!Murder She Wrote, and Friends.

“`Berlinger was content providing support in profitable cinema, such as The Wackiest Ship in the Army, Because They’re Young, Spinout with Elvis Presley, The Long Goodbye, Lepke, The Cannonball Run, The World According to Garp, and That Thing You Do! A couple of short-lived situation comedies didn’t work out for the talented actor.

“`Warren Berlinger (above right) was eighty-three.
