Biography by Hal Erickson

Though he made his first film appearance in 1959's Pork Chop Hill, American character actor Bert Remsen did not achieve prominence until the 1980s. On TV, Remsen was seen as Mario the Chef in It's a Living (1980-81) and as wildcat oil man Harrison "Dandy" Dandridge during the 1987-88 season of Dallas. In films, he was featured in several Robert Altman productions, and also essayed the title character in Daddy's Dyin'...Who's Got the Will? (1990). In addition, he occasionally worked as a Hollywood casting director. Bert Remsen's most recent credit (as of 1996) was as one of the "expert witnesses" during the Bruno Richard Hauptmann trial in the made-for-cable Crime of the Century.
