Most impressionable as the sensitive, cherubic-faced college student/boyfriend of Liza Minnelli in The Sterile Cuckoo (1969), actor Wendell Burton was born in Texas on July 21, 1947. His father, an Air Force technical sergeant, was killed in a plane crash when he was only 5. As a result his family relocated to Washington State to be near relatives. He majored in political science and public speaking at Somona State College and joined in a few campus stage productions. By chance, at the insistence of a friend, he auditioned for and won the title role in the San Francisco production of "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown." Instead of returning to college, which he had planned after the show's end, he was "discovered" during the show's run by "Sterile Cuckoo" director Alan J. Pakula and chosen over hundreds of more experienced film actors to play Jerry Payne opposite Minnelli's Pookie Adams in the bittersweet campus romance that became an unqualified hit. He and Minnelli are still identified with the movie's touching Oscar-nominated song "Come Saturday Morning." In order to avoid the fresh-off-the-bus typecasting, Wendell took on the role of "Smitty" in the controversial screen adaptation of Fortune and Men's Eyes (1971) in which he played a naive young inmate who is raped shortly after entering prison, then degenerates into a sexual predator himself by film's end. He balanced this with a Hallmark TV adaptation of his "Charlie Brown" musical. The small screen proved a viable medium for the young actor in the early 70s with above-average mini-movie roles in "Murder Once Removed," "Go Ask Alice," and "The Red Badge of Courage." He also played Dick Van Dyke and Hope Lange's son for one season on the comedy star's "new" show. A soul-searcher by nature, Wendell questioned the direction of his life and, after much traveling and study, immersed himself in the Christian religion. He married in 1978 and is the father of a daughter and a son. Reminiscent of the perennially boyish and now balding Ron Howard in looks and demeanor, his career has pretty much fallen away since he turns down most roles he deems morally objectionable. In later years he taught acting in Hollywood, and eventually became a minister.

  • A newcomer to film, he turned down the lead role in the cult film Harold and Maude in order to gain more experience on stage. As a result, he earned the co-starring role opposite Eve Arden in the national company of "Butterflies Are Free."
