A veteran character actor whose five-year career spanned from the stages of Broadway to the shimmering light of film and television, Robert P. Lieb began his acting career as a dead man in the Broadway play Mr. and Mrs. North before his career sprang to life with small-screen appearances in Perry Mason and Hazel. A native of Pelham, NY, Lieb attended N.Y.U. before appearing on Broadway in Death of a Salesman and Harvey among numerous other productions. In addition to his stage work, Lieb made an impression on television audiences with appearances in Sgt. Bilko, Playhouse 90, and a memorable turn as a bemused police officer opposite Art Carney on a Christmas episode of The Twilight Zone. From the 1960s through the 1990s, Lieb could be seen frequently on television, and frequent feature roles in The Fortune Cookie (1966), Clambake (1967), and The Parallax View (1974) found him in steady demand. Following complications from intestinal surgery, Robert P. Lieb died in late September 2002. He was 88.
