Actor
    (October 23, 1923-June 28, 1974)
    Best known as Sgt. Vince Carter opposite Jim Nabors in the TV series 'Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C. (1964-70)'
    His first TV role was in 'Captain Video and His Video Rangers (1949-55),' a favorite of 'The Honeymooners' dimwitted character Ed Norton.
    He had made only 4 full length movies, and the first, 'Marty (1955),' was uncredited.
    He pitched Maxwell House coffee in commercials aired on the TV series in full Sgt. Carter regalia, having leisurely chats with the Gomer character.
    After his stint with 'Gomer Pyle' ended, his career was pretty much over due to typecasting. He appeared in only one lame made-for-TV movie, 'Hurricane (1974),' and 5 episodes of 'Love, American Style.'
    He and his Sgt. Carter character were cigar smokers.
    His father died when he was 15.
    He was a World War II vet.
    He was a black belt in judo.
    He attended Columbia University and graduated cum laude in dramatic arts.
    He toured in Vietnam during the war to do research for his Sgt. Carter character as well as to chat with the troops.
    He befriended Jim Nabors, appearing in his variety show 'The Jim Nabors Hour (1969-71)' to recite a moving poem about a soldier killed in the line of duty.
    His Sgt. Carter character has been a source of inspiration to future drill sergeant movie roles, such as Louis Gossett, Jr. in 'An Officer And A Gentleman' and R. Lee Ermey in 'Full Metal Jacket.'
    While doing dinner theatre work he died of a heart attack at age 50 (1974).
