Nov 04, 1896
Ian Wolfe was an American actor. Until 1934, he worked in the theatre. That year, he also turned to film and later television, as a character actor. His career lasted many decades; his last credit was in 1990. He appeared in many notable films, including the Clark Gable/Charles Laughton Mutiny on the Bounty, Alfred Hitchcock's Saboteur, the highly regarded Julius Caesar, James Dean's Rebel Without a Cause and George Lucas's THX 1138. Wolfe's best-known role may have been in the 1946 movie Bedlam, in which he played a lawyer confined to an asylum. Wolfe played a crooked small town doctor in "Six Gun's Legacy", an episode from the first season of The Lone Ranger. In it he plots to cheat a man out of his inheritance by using a look-alike to collect the payment. The episode is unusual in that it featured white collar crime, though at the end, true to formula, Wolfe draws on The Lone Ranger and has his gun shot from his hand. Wolfe appeared in the 1966 Perry Mason episode, "The Case of the Midnight Howler," as Abel Jackson. In 1966, he portrayed the new Rev. Leighton on The Andy Griffith Show, where in an attempt to impress, Aunt Bee wears a wig.
