Profile Bio Text
William "Bill" Fawcett (September 8, 1894 – January 25, 1974) was a character actor in Hollywood B-films and in television. His career extended from 1946 until the early 1970s. He is probably best remembered for his role as the cantankerous, rusty-voiced Pete Wilkey of the Broken Wheel Ranch on the NBC series Fury, co-starring Peter Graves, Bobby Diamond, and Roger Mobley. He was one of the few actors to have earned a Ph.D. degree. Fawcett was born as William Fawcett Thompson in High Forest in Olmsted County near Rochester in southeastern Minnesota. The name "Fawcett" came from the physician who delivered him. His father, William Eaton Lawrence Thompson, was a Methodist pastor who encouraged young Bill to enter the ministry. On September 5, 1916, three days before his twenty-second birthday, Fawcett was licensed to preach by the Hamline Quarterly Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church of Minnesota. During World War I, Fawcett served as an ambulance driver. He graduated from Methodist-affiliated Hamline University in Saint Paul, Minnesota. Fawcett was decorated by the French government with the Légion d'honneur for his care of the wounded. After his military service, he went into acting, instead of the ministry, first in Canada and then in the United States. He had performed in church dramas and acted so convincingly that his mother would sometimes cry over his characterizations. He performed in repertory theater and stock companies during the 1920s and 1930s. In 1936, Fawcett procured his Ph.D. in Elizabethan drama from the University of Nebraska at Lincoln. He then became a professor of theater arts at Michigan State University in East Lansing, Michigan. Heading to Hollywood In 1942, he left Michigan State to audition in Hollywood as an actor himself. He sought a part as a college professor but was turned down on the false grounds that he did not fit the part. Fawcett was a thin, wiry man and filled the bill for the ornery, cantankerous, but fiercely loyal, old coot. Fawcett adopted his stage name when he found that there were several other actors already using the name "William Thompson". His first film credit came at the age of fifty-two, when in 1946, he portrayed Judge Smith in Stars Over Texas. In 1947, he starred as Nat in Green Dolphin Street and as Andre the beachcomber in The Sea Hound. That same year, he was Uncle Bob in Pioneer Justice. In 1948, Fawcett portrayed Judge Hammond in Check Your Guns and as a news hawker in Superman. Fawcett's roles continued in 1949 as Professor (He got to portray his previous occupational role.) Hammond, a scientist and inventor, in Batman and Robin and as Merlin the Magician in Adventures of Sir Galahad. He played Ezra Fielding that same year in Barbary Pirate and a judge in Ride, Ryder, Ride! Films in the 1950s In 1950, Fawcett was cast as Zeke in Chain Gang, as Ezra in "Cody of the Pony Express", and as Wharton in Pirates of the High Seas. In 1951, one of his busiest years, he was Mr. Tuttle in The Mating Season, Mr. Jackson in Mysterious Island, Old Mountain Man in Comin' Round the Mountain, Alkalai in Cattle Queen, and Alpha in Captain Video: Master of the Stratosphere. He had a good role as Washoe, a ranch cook in Hills of Utah. In 1952, Fawcett played Weatherbee in Kansas Territory, the High Priest in King of the Congo, Caretaker in Has Anybody Seen My Gal?, and was Dr. Rolph in Blackhawk, a serial. He had some excellent scenes as cattle rancher Uncle John in Barbed Wire. In 1953, Fawcett continued as Dr. Fairchild in Neanderthal Man and as Orin Hadley in Run for the Hills. In 1954, he was Rocky Ford in Riding with Buffalo Bill and as Old Pickup Driver in Gang Busters. In 1955, Fawcett was Cubby Crouch in Seminole Uprising. In 1956, he portrayed Jergens in Canyon River, Matthew Barnes in Dakota Incident, and "Pa" to Andy Griffith in No Time for Sergeants. He was also featured in archival footage on the children's program, The Gabby Hayes Show. He also appeared in Disney's TV miniseries Davy Crockett. In 1958, Fawcett was a farmer in Good Day for a Hanging. From 1957-1959, Fawcett appeared as Sam Miller, the hanged publisher of the Wilcox Clarion newspaper in Willcox (later spelling), Arizona, in the premiere episode of the syndicated western series 26 Men, stories about the Arizona Rangers, starring Tristram Coffin.
