Schallert died Sunday at his home in Pacific Palisades, California, said his son, Edwin, He was 93, Though usually seen in secondary roles, Schallert’s lean, friendly face was familiar to baby boomers for roles in two classic sitcoms — as a teacher to Dwayne Hickman and his pals in “The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis” and as the dad in “The Patty Duke Show.”, “The Patty Duke Show” (1963-1966) was challenging for Duke, who had international dance shoes already achieved stardom on Broadway as the young Helen Keller in “The Miracle Worker” and repeated the role in the film, winning her a supporting actress Oscar, (Duke died in March at age 69.)..
In the television series she played a double role, as Patty Lane, a typical American teenager, and as her cultured cousin, Cathy, who lives with Patty’s family. Cathy was newly arrived from overseas, where, the theme song told viewers, she “adores a minuet, the Ballets Russes and crepes suzette.” Patty just likes rock ‘n’ roll and hot dogs. Schallert was cast as Patty’s harried father (and Cathy’s uncle), who was confused by the lookalike girls. He was similarly frustrated as English teacher Mr. Pomfritt on “Dobie Gillis.” The show, which ran from 1959 to 1963, starred Hickman as a teenager comically yearning for the perfect girl, and a strong supporting cast including Bob Denver as his beatnik pal, Maynard. “You ready, my young barbarians?” Mr. Pomfritt would ask his students, comically pining for the days of corporal punishment in the classroom.
In 1979, Schallert was elected president of the 46,000-member Screen Actors Guild, an honor held at one time or another by James Cagney, George Murphy, Ronald Reagan, Charlton Heston and other screen notables, Most of them had little to do but conduct meetings and issue international dance shoes statements, With Schallert it was different, In 1980 he led the union as it staged a 13-week strike over such issues as actors’ pay for films made for the then-new cable television industry, He told the Los Angeles Times his message to actors was that “we have to respect ourselves as artists” and recalled the pre-union days when actors were sometimes expected to work until midnight and be back at work six hours later..
