LOS ANGELES (AP) - Larry Dobkin, a veteran character actor whose television and film career spanned seven decades, has died. He was 83.

Dobkin, who appeared in more than 65 feature films including "The Ten Commandments" and "Sweet Smell of Success," died of heart failure Oct. 28 at his Los Angeles home.

Born in New York City in 1919, Dobkin began acting off-Broadway in his teens. On radio in the 1940s, he was one of five actors who played famed detective Ellery Queen.

Turning to television in the 1950s, Dobkin appeared in shows such as "I Love Lucy" and "The Adventures of Superman." He also appeared in a number of TV westerns, including "Gunsmoke," "Lawman," "The Rifleman" and "Rawhide."

Most recently, Dobkin appeared in episodes of "NYPD Blue" and "Judging Amy."

Dobkin also directed episodes of "The Donna Reed Show," "Dr. Kildare," "The Waltons," "Barnaby Jones," "Charlie's Angels," "Dallas," "Dynasty" and "The Fall Guy."

Dobkin, who received an Emmy nomination for his supporting role in the 1967 "CBS Playhouse" production of "Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night," also wrote the 1976 film "The Life and Times of Grizzly Adams."

He also appeared in the feature films "Julius Caesar," "The Defiant Ones," "North by Northwest," "Patton" and "Angels in the Outfield."

He is survived by his wife, Anne, and four children.
