    William Schallert has died at the age of 93 at his home in the Pacific Palisades neighborhood of Los Angeles.

    The actor was best known for his work as Martin Lane on the hit series The Patty Duke Show which aired on ABC from 1963 until 1966.

    His son Edwin confirmed his passing with The Hollywood Reporter on Monday.

    2004 he was placed on TV Guide’s 50 Greatest TV Dads list. He placed number 39.

    He starred as Martin Lane of Patty Lane (played by Duke) and the uncle of her level-headed twin cousin Cathy (also Duke) on The Patty Duke Show.

    Before that show, he was on The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis, which ran from 1959 until 1963.

    He then played a Mississippi mayor Webb Schubert in the 1967 Oscar-winning best picture In the Heat of the Night.

    The actor also popped up on Get Smart; Leave It to Beaver; Dream On, The New Gidget;The Wild, Wild West; Star Trek; and True Blood.

    'In 1959, I probably set an individual record. I worked 57 times in [that] year; that’s more than once a week!' he told the Archive of American Television in a 2012 interview.

    Robin, I was just going to call William Shaltman when Beth came downstairs with Moby, our eyeless, one-pawed kitten.

    Gilbert Gottfried & Frank Santopadre had mentioned him recently.
    I thought it was a tease for a future podcast with Schallert as a guest.

    Robin, I am very excited, do you know who we are having on today. William Schallert. Remember he was on the Many Loves of Dobie Gillis and Patty Duke. Howard weren't shows on when Kennedy was President. Yes. Isn't that a little before most of our listeners were born. Robin, the show isn't about what the listeners like, it's about what I like. If I took the listeners advice I would have been out of radio when I worked in Hartford. A few hours pass. Robin, I just received some horrible news, our guest William Schallert died. How old was he, Howard. He was 93 but he was a young 93. Now we have to kill an hour. Richard get in here, cue up some phony phone calls.

    Interesting!

    Pretty sure that he was doing ads for METV or TVLAND not too long ago. Guy had a solid career and enjoyed a long life, too. :rip:
