I have a soft spot for Hollywood's journeymen, those actors and actresses who were not stars and knew they never would be, but who toiled more or less anonymously and found work whenever a "type" was needed. I guess they call them "character actors," but they were actors nonetheless.
Once in awhile, one of them would get a defining role. Bad for a star who doesn't want to get pigeonholed, good for a journeyman who wants to stay employed.
We lost a great one on June 8. Frank Cady -- Sam Drucker on "Green Acres" (and "Petticoat Junction" and "Beverly Hillbillies") proprietor of the Hooterville general store -- passed at 96. (Eddie Albert was 99 when he died -- must be that "fresh air" he sang about in the theme song.)
Fun fact: He was also in Alfred Hitchcock's "Rear Window." No, not as Sam Drucker.
