Biography

Albert Salmi served in the United States Army before studying Method acting with Lee Strasberg. Following a stint on stage, including a role in "Bus Stop" on Broadway, his film debut came in 1958 alongside Yul Brynner and William Shatner in "The Brothers Karamazov." Salmi also starred with Gregory Peck in "The Bravados" before moving back to television. Throughout the 1960s he appeared in numerous TV shows including "The Twilight Zone," "Lost in Space," "Gunsmoke," "Combat!," and "Bonanaza." He continued to work primarily in television throughout the 1970s and 1980s with roles on shows like "Baretta," "Police Story," "Dallas," and "The A-Team." Police in Spokane, Washington, found Salmi and his wife shot to death in their home in April 1990. Salmi had been suffering from depression, and police reports claim that he murdered his wife, from whom he was estranged, before killing himself.
