David Fresco had just gotten a foothold in Hollywood by the early 1950s when he was blacklisted for failing to cooperate with the House Un-American Activities Committee. His output was reduced to a trickle for many years, but Fresco staged a comeback by the end of the decade, appearing as a half-dozen unique characters in the TV mystery anthology "Alfred Hitchcock Presents." He likewise filled a smattering of supporting roles when the series was issued an expanded timeslot and renamed "The Alfred Hitchcock Hour" in 1964. Fast becoming a staple on primetime television, Fresco appeared on many memorable '60s and '70s programs, encompassing everything from superhero fare like "Batman" to the classic sitcom "The Odd Couple" and the gritty police procedural "The Streets of San Francisco." Fresco's career experienced a second resurgence in the '90s, beginning with a prominent appearance on the quintessential comedy "Seinfeld." He played a stuffy second-cousin-in-law of the eponymous comedian in the 1991 episode "The Pony Remark." He also played Albert Wysong in several episodes of the ABC legal drama "Murder One." Finally returning to the world of film, Fresco landed small parts in Mexican auteur Alfonso Cuarón's fairy tale "A Little Princess," the broad Jim Carrey comedy "Liar Liar," and the brutal boxing flick "Diggstown."
