Eddie Albert ACTOR


Eddie Albert was born on April 22nd, 1906 in Rock Island, Illinois with the birth name Edward Albert Heimberger.  He graduated from Central High School in Minneapolis, Minnesota and then went on to the University of Minnesota where he studied drama and first got involved in the industry of entertaining by working as a circus trapeze flier. 
He then became involved in working as a stage actor and from there he became interested in working in television as well as the film industry.  His television career began very early on before electronic television was known to the public.  He began his career as a contract player with Warner Brothers. The first time to appear live was in 1936 in RCA/NBC's private live performance for the radio licensees.  Eddie also wrote the first ever television drama in 1936 and followed this by writing many other small scripts for RCA throughout his career. 
He wrote the first original drama for television in 1936 as well as writing dozens of small scripts for RCA.  Albert made his film debut in, "Four Daughters" (1938) followed by, "Brother Rat" (1938).  During World War II he served in the United States Navy and when he completed his service he returned right back to acting.
He continued to work in the industry for over 6 decades and portrayed a variety of characters.  One of his more well known roles was in the film, "Attack" (1956) and is also very well known for his role in, "Green Acres" (1965).  He also worked on a number of game shows and variety shows in the 1950's.      

Eddie Albert married only one time to Mexican actress and singer, Margo Albert from 1945 through 1985 when she passed away and together they had two children, actor Edward and Maria Albert.  Albert continued to work as an actor up until the late 90's.  He passed away on May 26th, 2005 in Pacific Palisades, California after suffering from pneumonia.  Eddie Albert is buried at the Westwood memorial Cemetery in Los Angeles, California.
Along with being a very talented actor he also founded, City Children's Farms which was a program to help get inner city children involved in faming.  He was also very involved in environmental causes and groups.  International Earth day is actually set on his birthday, April 22nd.
