Frank McHugh (May 23, 1898 - September 11, 1981) was an American film and television actor. McHugh came from a theatrical family. His parents ran a stock theatre company and as a young child he performed on stage. His brother Matt and sister Kitty performed an act with him by the time he was ten years old. He debuted on Broadway in The Fall Guy in 1925, and Warner Bros. hired him as a contract player in 1930. He was married to Academy Award-nominated film editor, Dorothy Spencer. McHugh played everything from lead actor to sidekick and would often provide comedy relief. He appeared in over one hundred and fifty films and television productions, and worked with almost every star at Warner Bros. By the 1950s his film career began to slow and his smaller role in Career (1959) is emblematic of his career's decline during this period. From 1964 to 1965 he played the television role of Willis Walter on The Bing Crosby Show.
