Mini Bio (1)

Stocky, balding American character actor with a rich, deep voice, equally adept at Western bad guys and Shakespeare. He began his career in films in minor roles, primarily as gangland henchmen, and progressed to become widely familiar as a figure in a variety of dramas and occasional comedies. Although a stalwart and reliable supporting player, he was not of a type to essay leading roles in films, but remained a well-respected actor whose face, if not name, is familiar to a generation of film and television viewers.

Father of actor Jeff Doucette.
In Patton (1970) Doucette played a general under the command of Gen. George S. Patton during World War II. Doucette actually fought as an infantryman in Patton's 3rd Armored Div. during World War II--although not as a general--and took part in the famous Battle of the Bulge (also depicted in "Patton").
His father was a shoemaker who worked in the many shoe factories in the Boston area. As one would close down, he would have to relocate to find a job at another one. Because of the family's constant moving, as a child Doucette attended more than 32 elementary schools.
