Comic actor Dick Wesson, he of the crew-cut hair and toothy grin, began his career in nightclubs in a double act with his brother Gene. Wesson spent virtually his entire film career at Warner Bros., providing genial comedy relief to such Technicolor musicals as About Face (1952), The Desert Song (1953) and Calamity Jane (1953). After playing a dyspeptic assistant director in Jerry Lewis' The Errand Boy, Wesson began appearing on episodes of sitcoms like The Beverly Hillbillies, Maude, and the TV weekly Friends and Lovers, while working as a producer for the hit series Petticoat Junction. He then retired from the spotlight, and passed away from a heart attack in 1996. Dick Wesson was the father of actress Eileen Wesson.
