Businesslike character player Dolph Sweet attended college both in his native New York and in Alabama. He went on to teach English and direct plays at Barnard College. Even after achieving prominence as a Broadway actor, Sweet kept his hand in directing, helming some two dozen plays. In films since 1961's The Young Doctors, Sweet received some of his best reviews for his performance as a nonplussed cop in the 1968 cult favorite You're a Big Boy Now. Extremely busy on television, Sweet spent four years in the role of Lt. Gil McGowan on the daytime drama Another World. It was for another law-enforcement role, police chief Carl Kaninsky in the 1980s sitcom Gimme a Break, that Dolph Sweet is best remembered; he essayed this role from 1981 until his death in 1985, an occasion marked by a heartfelt "tribute" episode.
