Frank Lovejoy (March 28, 1914 - October 2, 1962) was a 1940s and 1950s film actor playing mostly supporting roles. Before becoming a movie actor, Lovejoy was a successful radio voiceover talent and stage actor. Lovejoy was a voice actor on the 1930s crime story radio series called Gangbusters. He also played the title character on the syndicated radio program The Blue Beetle during the Forties, and starred in the later crime drama series Nightbeat in the early 1950s. In movies, Lovejoy was effective playing the movie's everyman (because of his somewhat bland looks and unassuming personality) in extraordinary situations. Lovejoy also played in many World War II movies. Lovejoy was married to actress Joan Banks, with whom he had two children (a boy and a girl).
