Actor, Frank Reicher, was born Franz Reichert on Dec 2, 1875 in Munich, Germany. Reicher died at the age of 89 on Jan 19, 1965 in Playa del Rey, CA .
Frank Reicher was a German-born actor whose small chin, high forehead, pointed nose and crow's-feet eyes gave the impression that he was forever leaning intently forward. He had begun his career as a director of silent-films, but in sound films concentrated on acting mostly as professors, doctors, surgeons and small-town officials, (1942, To Be or Not To Be; 1944, The Canterville Ghost; 1949, Samson and Delilah). Usually in kind or gentle parts, occasionally victims or suspicious figures of authority, he was intensely busy throughout the latter stages of his career.(Source: available at Amazon Quinlan's Illustrated Dictionary of Film Character Actors).
