Actor
    (September 14, 1933-June 30, 2009)
    Born in Modesto, California
    Birth name was George Harvey Presnell
    Baritone vocalist
    Appeared on Broadway in 'The Unsinkable Molly Brown,' 'Annie' and 'Annie Warbucks'
    Appeared in the films 'The Unsinkable Molly Brown' (1964), 'When the Boys Meet the Girls' (1965), 'Paint Your Wagon' (1969), 'Blood Bath' (1976), 'Fargo' (1996), 'The Chamber' (1996), 'Face/Off' (1997), 'Saving Private Ryan' (1998), 'Patch Adams' (1998), 'The Legend of Bagger Vance' (2000), 'The Family Man' (2000), 'Mr. Deeds' (2002), 'Old School' (2003) and 'Flags of Our Fathers' (2006)
    Portrayed Lois Lane's father on 'Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman,' Mr. Parker in 'The Pretender' and Lew Staziak in 'Andy Barker, P.I.'
    He dropped the 'y' from Harvey.
    He divorced the mother of three of his kids.
    He arrived after Hollywood's golden age for musicals had passed and his movie career largely halted after the disastrous 'Paint Your Wagon.'
    When first approached about appearing in a touring company of 'Annie,' he thought the title was short for 'Annie Get Your Gun'; after finding he was to play the bald Daddy Warbucks, 'I thought, 'What's this? I'm a leading man!''
    Three weeks after he entered USC on a sports scholarship, the head of the music department heard him singing and offered him an identical scholarship for music.
    He was an imposing presence at 6'4.
    Composer Meredith Willson wrote the part of Leadville Johnny Brown in 'The Unsinkable Molly Brown' for him.
    He won a Golden Globe as most promising male newcomer (1965).
    After being cast as William H. Macy's father-in-law in 'Fargo' he began a successful second career as a character actor.
