Was there any program Edward Andrews wasn't on in the 60s?
Edward Andrew was born in Griffin, Georgia, the son of an Episcopalian minister, and grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Cleveland, Ohio and Wheeling, West Virginia. As a child he attended Pittsburgh's Nixon Theatre and would nab a balcony seat so as to catch a good view of the 'headliners.' At age 12 he did a walk-on in a stock theatre production which featured James Gleason and he was 'hooked' on an acting career. He attended the University of Virginia and at age 21 made his stage debut in 1926, progressing to Broadway by 1935. In 1936, Andrews debuted in the movie Rushin' Art. He and his wife Emily had three children, 2 daughters and a son. He was an avid yachtsman and loved sailing. He died of a heart attack at the age of seventy.
