Biography

Though he was born and raised in rural Illinois, Harry Bellaver specialized in playing the iconic character type of the working-class New Yorker. After getting his start on Broadway in the 1930s, Bellaver made his movie debut as a thug in the 1939 comic mystery "Another Thin Man". Bellaver worked steadily in film until the 1970s, but his greatest success came in the television series "Naked City", which ran from 1958 to 1963. Bellaver's supporting character, rumpled detective Frank Arcaro, was the easygoing foil to the intense, hotheaded leads played by stars James Franciscus and Paul Burke. Bellaver's last major role came in the 1980 superhero comedy "Hero at Large".
