Biography[]

Bert Convy was an American actor of stage, film and television, a singer and a television game show host. He was born in Saint Louis and came to Los Angeles after his parents separated when he was seven.

A top baseball player at his Los Angeles high school, who briefly joined the Philadelphia Phillies farm system in the early 1950s, Mr. Convy's versatile career even ran to hit records. Realizing that he was more suited to acting than athletics, he returned to school and while a student at the University of California, Los Angeles, joined a rock 'n' roll group called The Cheers. Their first hit, (Bazoom) I Need Your Lovin, in 1954 was a mild success, but their second Black Denim Trousers and Motorcycle Boots a year later sold a million copies.

Mr. Convy starred in several major Broadway hits, including Fiddler on the Roof, Cabaret and The Front Page.

At the same time, he began to appear on television in such shows as 77 Sunset Strip, Perry Mason, Father of the Bride, and, later, Love, American Style and The Partridge Family.

His film credits include Semi-Tough, The Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders, The Man in the Santa Claus Suit, Help Wanted: Male, Love Thy Neighbor, Hero at Large and The Cannonball Run. He directed and produced the film Weekend Warriors in 1986.

Mr. Convy became a frequent guest host on The Tonight Show and in 1974 began his own daytime game show, Tattletales, which won him an Emmy as best daytime host in 1977. He was subsequently the host of Win, Lose or Draw and Super Password.

Bert Convy died of cancer at his home on June 15, 1991. He had been diagnosed with a brain tumor fifteen months prior to his passing. He was survived by his second wife, Catherine, and three children from his previous marriage to Anne Anderson.
