Howdy Manco!!

Frank DeVol was involved in more than one aspect of the film industry. He was a composer, who worked on the music for Kiss Me Deadly, McClintock, The Dirty Dozen, Hush Hush, Sweet Charlotte, Cat Ballou, The Flight Of The Phoenix along with many t.v. series, like McCloud, The Fess Parker Show, The Brady Bunch and many more. He was also a character actor, who appeared in both t.v. and movies from 1952-1990, including, My Favorite Martian, I'm Dickens, He's Fenster, The Farmer's Daughter, Bonanza, The Frisco Kid, The Brady Bunch ect. While working as a composer and actor, he also conducted the orchestra and arranged music for many t.v. shows, like My Three Sons, The Dinah Shore Show, The Big Knife, Pot O Gold, The World For Ransom and dozens of others.

Frank DeVol also had TV time as the band leader Happy Kyne on a '70's comedy series America 2-Night with Martin Mull.

I didn't realize that the reason Karen Sharpe retired was to raise a family. I also didn't realize that her husband was Stanley Kramer and that she spends her time keeping his name alive.
