Lyle Talbot (February 8, 1902 – March 2, 1996) was an American actor on stage and screen, best known for his long career in film from 1931 to 1960 and for his frequent appearances on television in the 1950s and 1960s. He also played Joe Randolph for ten years in the ABC situation comedy, The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet.


He began his career as a magician's assistant. He would later perform magic himself and work as a hypnotist's stooge.[1]

He briefly established his own theater company in Memphis, Tennessee. He went to Hollywood, California, in 1931, when the film industry began producing movies with sound and needed "actors who could talk".
