Edward Andrews (October 9, 1914 March 8, 1985) was a stage, film and television actor. Andrews was one of the most recognizable character actors on television and films from the 1950s into the 1980s. While Andrews' film acting career began in earnest in his forties, he appeared much older than he actually was and he was consistently typecast as a grandfatherly type, and thus he is most strongly associated with these roles in later films. Andrews appeared in several popular films including Elmer Gantry (1960) in which he was memorable as George F. Babbitt, The Absent-Minded Professor (1961) and Son of Flubber (1963) in both of which he played the Defense Secretary, Send Me No Flowers (1964) with Doris Day and Rock Hudson, and Avanti! (1972). He played the character of "Grandpa" Howard Baker in John Hughes' film Sixteen Candles (1984). His final appearance in a feature film was in Gremlins (1984). Andrews also made numerous appearances on television, such as The Andy Griffith Show, The Bob Newhart Show, Bewitched, Charlie's Angeles, and Hawaii 5-0, among many more series. Andrews' Broadway career was interrupted by military service during World War II. He served as Captain and commanding officer of "Battery C" within the 751st Field Artillery Battalion of the US Army, and was awarded the Bronze Star Medal in September of 1945. He was married from 1955 until his death from a heart attack in 1985. He and his wife had 3 children.
