Frederick Hubbard Guinn (Frederick Hubbard Gwynne) born July 10, 1926 in New York (New York City). He was the son of a successful stockbroker and former artist-cartoonist and has spent most of his childhood in South Carolina (South Carolina), Florida (Florida) and Colorado (Colorado), because his father constantly moved on official business. While in 1932, a happy family life changed dramatically when his father Fred died of complications following a simple routine operation, Guinn graduated from the prestigious private school Groton School. After school, in the midst of World War II, Fred, thanks to the growth (196 cm), she was in the Navy and served on warships to hunt for submarines. Returning home, Guinn took benefit for demobilized soldiers, for some time studied at the New York School of Design (New York Phoenix School of Design) in 1951 and graduated from Harvard University (Harvard University). At Harvard, he was a member of the privileged club, sang a cappella composed choir called ‘The Harvard Krokodiloes’ (as it became clear that he has a powerful baritone), drew cartoons for the student newspaper ‘Harvard Lampoon’, becoming, in the end, it president and participated in theater productions.

Once the issue Guinn became an actor Repertory Theatre Brattla (Brattle Theatre Repertory Company) in Cambridge, Massachusetts (Cambridge, Massachusetts), and in 1951 he married Jean Reynard (Jean ‘Foxie’ Reynard), nicknamed Fox, with whom he was introduced friends. After a successful role in Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ (A Midsummer Night’s Dream), Fred and his wife went to New York, where they thought there were more opportunities for the young actor. While most directors regarded Guinn too high and unattractive for the main roles, and for some time to support the family, Guinn had to earn a copywriter at an advertising agency, he received in 1952 his first Broadway role – a gangster comedy ‘Mrs. Makting’ ( Mrs. McThing). Over the next five years, he combined a stable job with numerous roles in the theater and on television, appearing in such prestigious shows like “Studio One ‘(Studio One),’ Theatre of Kraft ‘(Kraft Theater) and’ Shaw Phil Silver ‘(The Phil Silvers Show). For years, his main source of income is the work book illustrator and advertising artist. In 1958, he published his own first book, ‘The Best in Show’.

Guinn fame when in 1961 he was offered a role in the police series ‘patrol car 54, where are you?’. In two years, the actor starred in 60 episodes before the show ended. At this time the family Guinn was a trouble – drowned youngest son Dylan (Dylan), and the tragedy led to the emotional devastation of the actor. Total Fred and Fox had five children, four of whom survived their father. The growing family needed more money, and Fred never sat out of work. For 40 years of his career he has played almost 60 roles in film and television, not counting the multiple Broadway and performances off-Broadway (Broadway). In the next two years, from 1964 to 1966, he became for the whole country Herman Munster (Herman Munster), the likeness of Frankenstein (Frankenstein). Despite the terrible make-up and costumes gloomy, Herman had a huge following among children and adults. The actor also loved the character. However, this image is brought Guinn certain problems – and

type crystal was so convincing in the role of villain, that after ‘Munster’ it was very difficult to break stereotypes and move beyond the role. For example, in the television version of the comedy “Arsenic and Old Lace ‘Guinn played Jonathan Brewster (Jonathan Brewster), one more monstrous character. His film career has stalled somewhat, and the actor is back on Broadway.

Fortunately, drama Bernardo Bertolucci (Bernardo Bertolucci) ‘Luna’ (Luna) returned it to the screen. Guinn has played in “Ironweed ‘(Ironweed),’ Cotton Club ‘(The Cotton Club),’ Fatal Attraction ‘(Fatal Attraction) and many other films.

In retirement, he settled on a renovated farmhouse in the countryside, but had no time to enjoy the quiet life – after a year he was diagnosed with cancer. He died of pancreatic cancer July 2, 1993, at the age of 66 years.
