Tom Aldredge


Born - 28 February 1928, Dayton, Ohio, USA
Died - 22 July 2011

Slim, brown-haired, latterly wizened character actor with rosy cheeks and very thin upper lip. He often played doctors or other professional men, but is perhaps best known as the husband of Oscar-winning costume designer Theoni V Aldredge (1922-2011). He made his off-Broadway debut in the 1950s, and remained a man of the theatre for much of his career. Films were a sideline, but he managed to average one a year from the mid-1960s: The Troublemaker (1964), Who Killed Teddy Bear? (1965), The Boston Strangler (1968), The Rain People (1969), The Happiness Cage (1972), Countdown at Kusini (1976), Full Moon High (1981), Seize the Day (1986), *batteries not included (1988), See You in the Morning (1989), What About Bob? (1991), The Adventurres of Huck Finn (1993), The Stars Fell on Henrietta (1995), Lawn Dogs (1997), Message in a Bottle (1999), Camouflage (2001), Cold Mountain (2003), Intolerable Cruelty (2003), All the King's Men (2006), The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford (2007) and top-billed in the short A Magic Helmet (2010), his last. He died from lymphoma.
