Norman Fell (Actor)
(Norman Noah Feld)
b. 24 Mar 1924 - d. 14 Dec 1998
US Army Air Force (World War II, B-25 Tail Gunner, Pacific)
There is very little published information about Norman Fell’s time in the US Air Force. We do know he served as a tail gunner in the World War II Pacific theater. After his service was complete, he enrolled and studied drama at Temple University. During his long television and film career, Fell played a few choice parts in military films including Catch-22, PT 109 and Pork Chop Hill.
In this funny scene from Catch-22, of Fell playing straight man to Bob Newhart’s neurotic Major Major, he looks like a natural soldier.
