Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Actor Henry Corden found his real claim to fame when he joined the cast of the Hanna-Barbera cartoon series "The Flintstones," about a madcap prehistoric family, where he did several voices. In 1977, Corden took over the role of Fred Flintstone after the death of the original Fred, Alan Reed. Born in Montreal, Corden moved to New York when he was a child, and thereafter Hollywood in the 1940s. There, Corden started to work as an actor in films such as the Danny Kaye comedy "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty," the juvenile delinquent pic "The Asphalt Jungle," the south-of-the-border biopic "Viva Zapata!" with Marlon Brando, and "I Confess" for the Master of Suspense, Alfred Hitchcock. Corden got to play the villainous Sheik of Sinai in the Cecil B. DeMille epic "The Ten Commandments" in 1956, but he soon found opportunities for larger roles on television, performing on several episodes of the long-running Western "Gunsmoke" and the mystery series "Peter Gunn" in the late 1950s.
