Frank Reicher Overview:

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.

Sister Marie Therese Verzous: [stunned by the news] She never mentioned it.
Dr. St. Cyr: I can't understand it. She's had this affliction for a long time, and the constant pain and suffering associated with this disease is almost too horrible to describe.
