Sid Melton Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: May 23, 1920
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001
  • Birth Name: Sidney Meltzer

Diminutive, jug-eared comic actor Sid Melton cut his acting teeth in the touring companies of such Broadway hits as See My Lawyer and Three Men on a Horse. Though he once listed his film debut as being 1945's [[Feature~V130368~Model Wife~modelwife]], Melton showed up onscreen as early as 1942, playing one of the students in [[Feature~V85416~Blondie Goes to College~blondiegoestocollege]]. Mostly showing up in bits and minor roles in big-studio features, Melton enjoyed starring assignments at bargain-basement Lippert Studios, notably the 1951 "sleeper" [[Feature~V46791~The Steel Helmet~thesteelhelmet]]. His film career extended into the 1970s, when he was seen in a sizeable role in the Diana Ross starrer [[Feature~V28072~Lady Sings the Blues~ladysingstheblues]] (1975). Sid Melton's TV credits include the cult-favorite roles of Ichabod Mudd ("with two D's!") on Captain Midnight and nightclub owner Charley Halper on The Danny Thomas Show. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
