Cat. #0019940: GEORGE PETRIE

Tough to acquire vintage 3.25 x 5.5-inch black and white portrait, neatly signed in black fountain pen in the late 1970s or early 1980s. In good condition. Friendly-faced character actor George Petrie, who played essentially every other supporting role on T.V.'s "The Honeymooners" (1954-1955) and "The Jackie Gleason Show" (1952-1957, 1966-1969), was also memorable in classic episodes of "The Andy Griffith Show" (1961-1964), "The Twilight Zone" (1962), "The Addams Family" (1964-1966), "The Munsters" (1966), and "Gunsmoke" (1970).  His brief forays into feature films included small roles as flustered hothead types in Gypsy (1962), Hud (1963) and Planes, Trains and Automobiles (1997). Before his death, Petrie made something of a comeback, with recurring roles as Harv Smithfield on "Dallas" (1979-1991) and Sid on "Mad About You" (1994-1996).
