Biography

The Bronx, New York City, New York, USA
One of Broadway's most venerable, respected musical leading men, Alfred Drake created the male leads in "Oklahoma!" (1943), "Kiss Me Kate" (1949) and "Kismet" (1953). Sadly, he re-created none of these roles on screen. Very much a man of his beloved live theater, he never did go to Hollywood, except for the starring role in "Tars and Spars" (1946) for Columbia Pictures, a post-war comedy, and for a small role as the President of the Exchange in 1983's "Trading Places" (the one who says to Don Ameche "Mortimer, your brother's not well").
