1I'm just a small shard in a grand mosaic. -- FC, referring to his minor role in Gone With the Wind during a 2007 interview
1Runs a bed and breakfast in Tarleton Oaks and lives in Atlanta, Georgia. [December 2000]
2Currently semi-retired in Georgia, still making occasional appearances when possible. [March 2007]
3Grandfather of actor Brandon Crane.
4Made only two cinema films in his career (the rest were for TV) - his first, as Brent Tarleton, one of the red-haired Tarleton twins who woos Scarlett O'Hara at the beginning of Gone with the Wind (1939), made him a minor cult figure.
5Was hospitalized for a few weeks with complications related to diabetes, but died of a blood clot in his lung in a hospital near Atlanta, Georgia.
6Was reportedly the oldest surviving adult credited male cast member of Gone with the Wind (1939) at the time of his death at age 90.
7Became a long-time friend to Superman actor George Reeves, who played the other Tarleton twin, Stuart Tarleton, in GWTW. In fact, Fred was Reeves' best man at his first wedding in 1940. He never believed that Reeves committed suicide in 1959, but that someone else shot him to death.
8Became a part-time announcer at Los Angeles classical radio station KFAC in 1946, although he continued to act sparingly on TV. In the mid-1960s he began working full time at KFAC.
9Was also the program director of the AM side of the KFAC station in the 1970s in addition to hosting his own shows.
10KFAC was sold, and the new owners fired Fred and numerous other members of the "Old Guard" in 1987. He and the others later won an age-discrimination lawsuit against the radio station.
11Married five times. Children: Haydee, Terri, Shelley, David and Jason.
12Attended Tulane University and Loyola University in New Orleans while acting in local theater productions.
13Cousin of silent screen actress Leatrice Joy. It was she who took him to the Selznick studio where his Southern accent caught the attention of a casting director for GWTW. He read the opening scene with Vivien Leigh and immediately got the part and was put under a 13-week contract for $50 a week.
14The opening scene for GWTW with Scarlett and the Tarleton twins was shot three different times altogether. The first time the twins' dyed red hair was deemed too curly. The second take was reshot when it appeared that Scarlett's dress was too low-cut for the period.
15Bought an antebellum mansion in Barnesville, a town just south of Atlanta and turned it into a bed-and-breakfast with a complete "Gone With the Wind" museum. In 2007, due to his health issues, Fred and his wife auctioned off the home and its memorabilia.
16He was a frequent volunteer guest host on PBS pledge drives in support of public television.
17For some time, he was also a talent instructor at Crossroads of the World, where he recalls having worked with Gene L. Coon of Star Trek fame.
18Recently owned a registered historic 1846 Confederate home and Civil War hospital in Barnesville, Georgia, which he and his wife Terry operated as the Tarleton Oaks Bed & Breakfast for several years.
19For over 40 years, Fred Crane was an announcer at the classical-music radio station KFAC AM and FM in Los Angeles, until that station was bought and its format changed. He was widely known and praised for his voice and his dramatic reading ability. He had done some stage work, too, or, in his words, "trod the boards.".
