Wiki Biography: Born in 1924, Norman Alden served in the Army during World War II. At the end of the conflict he had the opportunity to benefit from the Montgomery GI Bill program meant to help returning soldiers to start or resume studying. That is how, while attending Texas Christian University, he discovered on the boards of on-campus theater that he had a talent for acting. This was the beginning of a long long career. Most of the time in small or even bit parts, actor Norman Alden, worked for such big names Howard Hawks, Jerry Lewis, Walt Disney, Woody Allen, Tim Burton. He could have very well become a star himself after Richard C. Sarafian chose him for the title role of Andy (1965). The director must have been very pleased with Alden for, as Andy Chadakis - the retarded son of elderly Greek immigrants - he showed remarkable acting ability . Unfortunately the film was little seen and the gifted actor landed no other part of such importance and quality afterward.
