Dick Elliott, a short, fat character actor with a booming laugh, appeared in over 240 films, most often as judges, mayors, newspaper reporters, policemen, and blowhards. He was born Richard Damon Elliott on April 30, 1886, in Salem, Massachusetts. He began performing in stock in 1931 and was on stage for nearly thirty years before his film debut, including appearing in the long-running hit,” Abie’s Irish Rose.” His first film was “Central Airport” in 1933. Among his other films were “Annie Oakley” (1935), “L’il Abner” (1940), “Christmas in Connecticut” (1945), “The Dude Goes West” (1948) and “Park Row” (1952). Many film fans remember him best for his role as the man on the porch in the holiday perennial “It’s a Wonderful Life” (1946), who he tells Jimmy Stewart to stop jabbering and go ahead and kiss Donna Reed. His last film role was in “Go, Johnny, Go!” in 1959. He also appeared in dozens of TV shows in the 1950’s and was also regularly cast as Santa Claus in Christmas episodes. To many people, Elliott will be remembered as Mayor Pike in “The Andy Griffith Show.” Elliott died during the second season of the show, on December 22, 1961, in Burbank, California.
