Henry Rowland

Henry Rowland (December 28, 1913 - April 26, 1984) was an American film actor. Rowland (born Wolfram Von Bock) had heavily Teutonic facial features, making him an invaluable commodity in wartime films, even though he was born in the American Midwest. Rowland "heiled" and "achtunged" his way through films ranging such as Casablanca to Russ Meyer's Supervixens. Conversely, he showed up as an American flight surgeon in 1944's Winged Victory, billed under his Army rank as Corporal Henry Rowland. In his last years, Rowland had continued playing such Germanic characters as the Amish farmer in 1975's The Frisco Kid. He also appeared in Westerns such as Annie Oakley, The Lone Ranger, Zorro, The Rifleman and Gunsmoke. For his contribution to the television industry, Henry Rowland has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 6328 Hollywood Boulevard.
