Don Ameche
Don Ameche
(/əˈmiːtʃi/; born Dominic Felix Amici; (31 May 1908 – 6 December 1993)[1] was an American actor and voice artist.[2][3] After playing in college shows, stock, and vaudeville, he became a major radio star in the early 1930s, which led to the offer of a movie contract from 20th Century Fox
20th Century Fox
in 1935. As a handsome, debonaire leading man in 40 films over the next 14 years, he was a popular star in comedies, dramas, and musicals. In the 1950s he worked on Broadway and in television, and was well known as the host of NBC's International Showtime from 1961 to 1965. Returning to film work in his later years, Ameche won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his performance in Cocoon (1985). Ameche was married to his wife Honore for 54 years, and they had six children.

Early life[edit] Ameche was born Dominic Felix Amici in Kenosha, Wisconsin
Kenosha, Wisconsin
on 31 May 1908. His father, Felice Amici, was a bartender from Italy from Montemonaco, Ascoli Piceno, Marche. His mother, Barbara Etta Hertel, was of Scottish, Irish, and German ancestry.[4][5][6] He had three brothers, Umberto (Bert), James (Jim Ameche), and Louis, and four sisters, Elizabeth, Catherine, Mary and Anna.[7] [8] Ameche attended Marquette University, Loras College, and the University of Wisconsin, where his cousin Alan Ameche
Alan Ameche
played football and won the Heisman Trophy in 1954.[9] Ameche had intended to study law, but he found theatricals more interesting and decided on a stage career. From 1946 to 1949, Ameche, with other Los Angeles entertainment figures including Bing Crosby
Bing Crosby
and Bob Hope, was a co-owner of the Los Angeles Dons of the All-America Football Conference, a rival to the National Football League.[10] He was instrumental in forming and leading the ownership group the year before play began[11] and initially served as team president.[12] Ameche was married to Honore Prendergast from 1932 until her death in 1986. They had six children. One, Ron Ameche, owned a restaurant, "Ameche's Pumpernickel" in Coralville, Iowa. He had two daughters, Connie and Bonnie. Ameche's younger brother, Jim Ameche, was also a well-known actor. His brother Bert was an architect who worked for the U.S. Navy in Port Hueneme, California, and then the U.S. Postal Service in Los Angeles, California. Vaudeville

Ameche had done well in college dramatics at Marquette University, and when a lead actor for a stock company production of Excess Baggage
Excess Baggage
did not turn up, a friend persuaded him to stand in for the missing actor. He enjoyed the experience and got a juvenile lead in Jerry For Short in New York, followed by a tour in vaudeville with Texas Guinan
Texas Guinan
until she dropped him from the act, dismissing him as "too stiff".[13] He made his film debut in 1935, and by the late 1930s, had established himself as a major actor in Hollywood. He appeared in such films as Alexander's Ragtime Band (1938), and as the title character in The Story of Alexander Graham Bell
Alexander Graham Bell
(1939). It led to the use of the word, "ameche", as slang for telephone in common catchphrases, as noted by Mike Kilen in the Iowa City Gazette (December 8, 1993): "The film prompted a generation to call people to the telephone with the phrase: 'You're wanted on the Ameche.'"[14] In the 1940 film Go West, Groucho Marx proclaims, "Telephone? This is 1870, Don Ameche
Don Ameche
hasn't invented the telephone yet". While in the 1941 film Ball of Fire, Barbara Stanwyck's character discusses the "ameche" slang usage, "Do you know what this means: I'll get you on the Ameche." Another highlight was co-starring with Gene Tierney
Gene Tierney
in Ernst Lubitsch's Heaven Can Wait in 1943, a film nominated for the Academy Award for Best Picture. In 1940, he was voted the 21st-most-popular star in Hollywood.[15] In 1944 he reportedly earned $247,677 for 1943, making him the second highest earner at 20th Century Fox
20th Century Fox
after Spyros Skouras.[16]

Ameche in 1946

Ameche played so many roles based on real people that on one of his radio broadcasts, Fred Allen
Fred Allen
joked, "Pretty soon, Don Ameche
Don Ameche
will be playing Don Ameche." Soon afterwards, in It's in the Bag!
It's in the Bag!
(1945), which starred Allen, Ameche indeed played himself in a bit part. Ameche and fellow veteran actor Ralph Bellamy
Ralph Bellamy
were eventually cast in John Landis' Trading Places
Trading Places
in 1983, playing rich brothers intent on ruining an innocent man for the sake of a one-dollar bet. In an interview some years later on Larry King Live, co-star Jamie Lee Curtis said that Ameche, a proper old-school actor, went to everyone on the set ahead of time to apologize when he was called to start cursing in the film. The film's success and their comedic performances brought them both back into the Hollywood limelight. Ameche's next role, in Cocoon (1985), won him an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. He continued working for the rest of his life, including in the sequel, Cocoon: The Return. He earned good reviews for the David Mamet and Shel Silverstein-penned Things Change; the New York Times said that he showed "...the kind of great comic aplomb that wins actors awards for other than sentimental reasons."[17] In 1990, Ameche appeared in an episode of The Golden Girls
The Golden Girls
as Rose Nylund's father. His last films were Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey (1993) and Corrina, Corrina (1994), completed only days before his death. Radio and television[edit] Ameche was a major radio entertainer, heard on such shows as Empire Builders, The First Nighter Program, Family Theater, and the Betty and Bob soap opera. Following his appearances as announcer and sketch participant on The Edgar Bergen/Charlie McCarthy Show, he achieved memorable success during the late 1940s playing opposite Frances Langford in The Bickersons, the Philip Rapp radio comedy series about a combative married couple. It began on NBC
NBC
in 1946, moving to CBS
CBS
the following year. He also had his own program, The Old Gold Don Ameche Show, on NBC
NBC
Red in the early 1940s.[18] He also enjoyed a substantial Broadway career, with roles in Silk Stockings, Goldilocks, Holiday for Lovers, Henry, Sweet Henry, and Our Town.

Ameche as the host of International Showtime in 1962

Ameche's best-known television role came between 1961 and 1965, when he traveled throughout Europe with a television videotape unit and camera crew to cover a different European resident circus or ice show that was taped for presentation on a weekly series titled International Showtime on NBC
NBC
television. Ameche was present at each circus or ice show taped for the series, and was seen as host and commentator. His "anchor position" was in the grandstands at the particular show being taped. Sometimes, when one of the star acts of a particular show spoke English, Ameche would interview him or her and the interview would appear during the program. He also guest featured in many television series, including NBC's The Polly Bergen Show and ABC's The Pat Boone Chevy Showroom
The Pat Boone Chevy Showroom
and Jack Palance's circus drama, The Greatest Show on Earth, which was broadcast during the 1963–1964 season. In the latter 1960s and early 1970s, Ameche directed the NBC
NBC
television sitcom Julia, featuring Diahann Carroll. He was also a frequent panelist on the 1950s version of To Tell The Truth. After the release of two 1970 comedies The Boatniks
The Boatniks
and Suppose They Gave a War and Nobody Came, Ameche was absent from theatrical movies for the next 13 years. His only appearance in cinema during that time was in F For Fake, Orson Welles' documentary on hoaxes, when 20th Century-Fox mistakenly sent Welles newsreel footage of Ameche misidentified as footage of Howard Hughes. Ameche also appeared in an early episode of Columbo entitled "Suitable For Framing" (1971). Despite his advancing age, Ameche remained busy. He had credited roles in a feature film every year for the last decade of his life except 1986 (although he starred in the TV movie A Masterpiece of Murder with Bob Hope
Bob Hope
that year) and attributed his continued productivity to an active lifestyle, which included regular six-mile walks. He said in a 1988 interview, "How many actors in their 20s and 30s do you know that have two pictures being released by major studios in one year?" (referring to Cocoon and Things Change). In 1960, for his contribution to radio, Ameche received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame
Hollywood Walk of Fame
at 6313 Hollywood Boulevard

and a second star at 6101 Hollywood Boulevard
Hollywood Boulevard
for his television work. Death[edit] On December 6, 1993, Ameche died at his son Don, Jr.'s house in Scottsdale, Arizona

of prostate cancer[19] at age 85. He was cremated and his ashes are buried at Resurrection Catholic Cemetery in Asbury, Iowa.[20] Filmography[edit]
