Biography

Hayden Rorke was a familiar face to many television fans, particularly viewers of the hit comedy show "I Dream of Jeannie," starring Barbara Eden as a bottled genie trying to swing with modern times and Larry Hagman as the Air Force officer lucky enough to fall in love with her. Rorke, who played the befuddled Air Force psychiatrist Colonel Dr. Alfred Bellows, was a highlight of the show. Before "I Dream of Jeannie," Rorke had worked for years, frequently uncredited, in many Hollywood films. Some of his most notable co-starring roles or bit parts can be found in the Gene Kelly musical "An American in Paris," the adventure story "Kim," the Westerns "Lust for Gold" and "Broken Arrow," the science fiction films "When Worlds Collide" and "Project Moon Base," and the Douglas Sirk melodrama "All that Heaven Allows," starring Rock Hudson and Jane Wyman. Rorke also guest starred on the popular long-running legal show "Perry Mason" and on the celebrated, progressive sitcom "I Love Lucy."
