WHO WAS FRANK WILCOX?

Frank Reppy Wilcox was born in De Soto on March 13, 1907, the son of a railroad worker and law clerk. He went on to become one of the most prolific character actors in Hollywood, appearing in more than 400 films and television programs in a career that spanned five decades.

The film festival will be a celebration of his work, including big screen classics like
They Died With Their Boots On and Santa Fe Trail. It will also showcase three of his television appearances on the hit show
Leave It To Beaver, hosted by Jerry Mathers.
