Lou Frizzell was born June 10, 1920 in Missouri. He was character actor who appeared in numerous plays, Broadway productions, television shows, and films. Frizzell is probably best known for his work on the television shows Bonanza and Chopper One.
Among his noteworthy motion picture credits are The Other (1972), Ruby and Oswald (1977), and Capricorn One (1978). He appeared in the Broadway production of Oklahoma! as well as guest starred on popular television shows such as The Waltons and The Partridge Family.
Additionally, he wrote music for productions of Desire Under the Elms, Wedding Night and Aria Da Capo. One of Frizzell's most notable achievements came during World War II, when he served as Musical Director at the Japanese Internment Camp in Manzanar, California. The Japanese Community was so appreciative of his kindness and compassion that when the television movie, Return to Manzanar was in development, the Community requested that Frizzell play himself.
