Lyle Talbot ACTOR


Lyle Talbot was born on February 8th, 1902 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania with the birth name Lysle Henderson. He was raised in a small town in Nebraska.  His mother passed away when he was a young boy so he was raised by his grandmother.
When he completed High School he became involved in the entertainment industry first joining a traveling tent show working as an assistant for a magician and soon became a magician himself and then decided to join a stock theater. 
After gaining some experience, he started his own company in Memphis, Tennessee, "The Talbot Players".  Soon he relocated to Hollywood and began appearing in a number of talkie films such as, "The King of Kings" (1927), "Love is a Racket" (1932), "Three on a Match" (1932), "20,000 Years in Sing Sing" (1932) and "One Night of Love" (1934).  In total Talbot appeared in more then 150 films. 
He was also one of the founding members of the Screen Actors Guild (SAG).  His career continued with roles in such features as, "Batman and Robin" (1949), "Atom Man vs. Superman" (1950), "Glen or Glenda" (1953), "Plan 9 from Outer Space" (1959).
Along with a successful singing and film career, he was also frequently seen on television such as in his most well known role for ten years portraying Joe Randolph in, "The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet" (1952) and other series such as, "The Bob Cummings Show" (1955), "Leave it to Beaver" (1957), "The Lone Ranger" (1949), "Wagon Train" (1957), "The Beverly Hillbillies" (1962) and "The Dukes of Hazards" (1979) among others.
His personal life experiences were not as successful as he married a total of five times and his first four marriages all lasted less then one year to, Elaine Melchoir, Marguerite Ethel Cramer, Abigail Adams and Keven McClure, however his 5th marriage to Margaret Epple whom he wed in 1948 and had four children with lasted until she passed away in 1989.
A couple years after losing his wife, Lyle Talbot passed away on March 2nd, 1996 in San Francisco, California at the age of ninety four from natural causes.
