Robert Prosky dies at age 77

Robert Prosky, a character actor with hundreds of credits on stage and screen including "Mrs. Doubtfire" and "Hill Street Blues," has died in a Washington hospital. He was 77.

Prosky appeared in more than 200 plays on Broadway and with Arena Stage, a regional theater company in Washington. He appeared in 38 films and numerous television shows.

A native of Philadelphia, Prosky studied economics at Temple University and served in the U.S. Air Force.

His role as Judge Henry Harper in the 1994 remake of "Miracle on 34th Street" is a favorite in our household.


  1. Temple, eh? Did he go at the same time as Great-Aunt Dot?

  2. I think he was about 10 years younger than Dot.


Why, hello there!
