Frank Scannell, a pug-nosed American character actor, made his film debut in Shadow of Suspicion (1944). Scannell spent the next two decades playing waiters, reporters, bell captains, and other such uniformed roles. One of his larger assignments was Sheriff Quinn in The Night the World Exploded (1957). Jerry Lewis fans will remember Frank Scanell as put-upon hospital patient Mr. Mealey ("I didn't know your teeth were in the glass") in The Disorderly Orderly (1964).
