Frank S. Ferguson (born December 25, 1906, Ferndale, California — died September 12, 1978, Los Angeles) was an American character actor with hundreds of appearances in both film and television.

Biography

Frank Ferguson a tourné dans près de 200 films pour le grand écran. Pour la plupart, ses apparitions ne concernaient que quelques scènes, voire une seule comme dans Le Massacre de Fort Apache, de John Ford. Deux grands cinéastes lui donnèrent cependant des rôles plus conséquents : Max Ophüls dans Pris au piège, où il incarne un médecin accoucheur, collègue de James Mason, et Nicholas Ray dans Johnny Guitare, où il tente de s'interposer entre Joan Crawford et Mercedes McCambridge, en y perdant la vie.

Il fut tout aussi actif à la télévision, en collaborant à différents feuilletons Le Virginien, La Petite Maison dans la prairie ou Bonanza. Mais c'est surtout son personnage du contremaître Gus Broeberg dans Mon amie Flicka aux côtés de Gene Evans et Anita Louise qui lui permet de devenir une figure familière du petit écran.
