Nope, not Walter.

13. With WWII brewing, I enlisted to serve my country. Somehow I was active in three different branches of the military before the war ended.
14. At the end of the war, I was serving in the US Navy. I was awarded a Bronze Star for rescuing a group of captured sailors while under heavy machine gunfire.

17. My Bronze Star helped a bit, but my wife's career was done.

My son, who loves military history, WW I & II, just read this last question, & called me. (He's not a member)

Mr. Edward Albert Heimberger.

He, not me, turns it over. Smile

Well done Sixten (and son) Eddie Albert it is.

18. I was soon cast in a VERY famous musical. I did not win an oscar, but the musical did.
19. I was a gust star on close to 100 different TV shows over the years.
20. What made me a household name was being cast in 1965 as a highly intellegent professional man who wanted a more laid-back and rural life.
21. Shortly after that I starred in a three season light hearted crime drama.
22. I have been nominated for two oscars, but did win either one.
23. I lived to be 99 years old, and while suffereing from Alzheimer's disease, I succumbed to pneumonia.

“Green Acres” was brilliant.

Indeed Karnak. There were two secrets that made it work. first was the oft successful plot of a sane normal person surrounded by an insane world. This has worked in almost every form of media there is. Second, it was a current event parody. The writers used to pour over newspapers to find things they could use on the show. I think it ran like five years or so. If asked I can both sing the theme song, or play it on my kazoo.

I will take another shot at it.

I was born in Duncan Oklahoma in 1954.

In 1959 I was credited with my first film role.

I appeared in a few episodes of the first season of the sitcom Dennis the Menace.

The family moved to Hollywood in 1958, the year before the birth of my younger brother Clint.

They rented a house 1 block south of the Desilu Studios. We lived in Hollywood for 3 years before moving to Burbank.

I was tutored at Desilu Studios in my younger years, later I attended USC School of Cinematic Arts, but I didn't graduate.

I was most famous for having starred in a classic TV Western series that ran for 20 years.

I was also no stranger to classic 1950s sci-fi movies, having played a lone invading alien in one film and a cop battling giant ants in another film.

I was 6’ 7” tall, and my brother was actor Peter Graves.

I was born on May 27, 1934, in Cleveland, OH

I ran away from home after my father's death, and held a number of odd jobs; including tuna fisherman, crop picker, nitroglycerine truck driver and hired gun for a wealthy neurotic.

I began selling stories in the late 40's and early 50's, including one to EC Comics!
