Biography: Harry Lauter (born Herman Arthur Lauter) (June 19, 1914 - October 30, 1990) was an American character actor.
He came to be a familiar presence in low-budget films, serials, and television programs in the 1950s, though he only once really came close to a stardom, as one of the leads in the television series Tales of the Texas Rangers in 1950. Most of his career was spent as a serviceable second lead or heavy, though he continued to play bit parts in larger pictures.
The son of an artist, he devoted much of his energy late in his life to his own painting and running an art gallery. He died in 1990.
