Frank Marth (July 29, 1922 – January 12, 2014) Memorial Video

Frank Marth was an American film and television actor. He may be best known as a cast-member of Cavalcade of Stars (1949; 1950–1957), especially segments of The Honeymooners, which later became a television series (1955–56). Marth's career ran from 1952–94.

Tall and fair-haired, Marth, often in tandem with the short, dark-haired George O. Petrie, played various recurring and one-time roles on The Honeymooners, i.e. as one of the brutal hoods who hold the Kramdens and Ed Norton hostage after Ralph witnesses a bank robbery; as Harvey Walstatter, who hires Alice Kramden to babysit his son, Harvey, Jr.; and as the inquiring news photographer who lands Ralph Kramden in hot water after he quotes Kramden declaring that he is "head of the household."

Marth later appeared in two episodes of Perry Mason, including "The Case of the Impetuous Imp" from season 9, 1965, as well as in episodes of Hogan's Heroes as numerous different SS officers, The Six Million Dollar Man, and M*A*S*H as tank commander Colonel Griswald. In 1976, he appeared in an episode of Sara.

Marth was married to Hope Holiday from 1967 until his death.

Marth died of congestive heart failure and Alzheimer's disease on January 12, 2014, aged 91.
