William Clement Frawley – otherwise know as “Fred Mertz” on the 1950’s sitcom The I Love Lucy Show. He played the grumpy retiree landlord/friend of the Ricardo’s (Lucy and Ricky). Desi (Ricky) said in an interview later on that Fred played the part so naturally because that’s who he was – naturally. Apparently there were three things that took priority over work – unless work got in the way: sports, drinking and eating (not necessarily in that order).

That is funny because Frawley accomplished so much in his career. He acted in over 100 movies and even played in a number of shows on Broadway in addition to being the funny man on the I Love Lucy Show.

Here he is – the man, the legend – Mr. William Clement Frawley in Photos…
