From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Henry Corden (born January 6, 1920 in Montreal, Canada; died May 19, 2005 in Los Angeles, California) was an American actor and voice artist best-known for taking over the role of Fred Flintstone on The Flintstones after Alan Reed died in 1977. (He also provided the singing voice for Reed in the 1966 theatrical film, The Man Called Flintstone.)

He gave his voice to a number of other Hanna-Barbara productions, including The Jetsons, Josie and the Pussycats, The Atom Ant Show, The New Tom & Jerry Show and Jonny Quest.

With his deep voice, jet-black hair and ethnic looks, Corden was frequently tapped to play heavies in films and on television. He can be seen in such live-action films as The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (1947), The Black Castle (1952) and The Ten Commandments (1956). He also appeared in dozens of TV shows, including Dragnet, Perry Mason and Gunsmoke.

Born in Montreal, Corden moved to New York as a child and arrived in Hollywood in the 1940s.

He died at the age of 85 of emphysema at AMI Encino Hospital. Corden's wife of nine years, Angelina, was with him at the time. Besides his wife, Corden is survived by five children and five grandchildren.
