Richard Crenna's Birthday - November 30, 1926

Richard Donald Crenna (November 30, 1926 – January 17, 2003) was an American motion picture, television, and radio actor and occasional television director. He starred in such motion pictures as The Sand Pebbles, Wait Until Dark, Un Flic, Body Heat, the first three Rambo movies, Hot Shots! Part Deux, the remake of Sabrina and The Flamingo Kid. Crenna played "Walter Denton" in the CBS radio network and CBS-TV network series Our Miss Brooks, and "Luke McCoy" in ABC's TV comedy series, The Real McCoys, (1957–63), which moved to CBS-TV in September 1962.
Richard Crenna got his acting start on radio. In 1937, he had gained his first role that of "the kid who did everything wrong" on Boy Scout Jamboree, a show on which he continued to appear occasionally in numerous roles until 1948. In the following year, he started playing Walter "Bronco" Thompson on The Great Gildersleeve, and played it until the show's end in 1957. He appeared as a delivery boy in My Favorite Husband episode "Liz Cooks Dinner for 12", was Oogie Pringle on A Date With Judy episode "The Competitive Diet" and several other episodes from the show and as a teenager on The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show episode "Watching the Neighbor's Daughter". From 1948 to 1952, he was Walter Denton on Our Miss Brooks and remained with the cast when they moved it to a television show. He guest starred on the I Love Lucy episode, "The Young Fans" with Janet Waldo and on NBC's 1955-56 anthology series, Frontier, in the lead role of the episode entitled "The Ten Days of John Leslie".[citation needed] In 1956, on the television series Father Knows Best, Crenna appeared in the episode "The Promising Young Man" as a protege, named Woody, who is uninterested in a traditional business career but is blessed with an engaging personality and gift for gab.

When the Our Miss Brooks TV series, which starred Eve Arden, underwent a change in format, his character Walter Denton was written off this series. Then, Crenna joined the cast of the comedy series, The Real McCoys as Luke McCoy. Kathleen Nolan was cast as his young wife, Kate McCoy in this series.
