AUTHENTICATED BY JSA (JAMES SPENCE AUTHENTICATION)S
Aldo Ray (born Aldo Da Re; September 25, 1926 March 27, 1991) was an American actor.
Ray was born in Pen Argyl in Northampton County in eastern Pennsylvania, to an Italian family of five brothers (Mario, Guido, Dante, Dino & Louis) and one sister (Regina). His brother, Mario DaRe (1933-2010), lettered in football at USC in the years 1952 to 1954, and on May 12, 1955 appeared as a contestant on the NBC quiz show You Bet Your Life hosted by Groucho Marx. In 1944, at age 18, during World War II, Aldo entered the United States Navy, serving as a frogman until 1946; he saw action at Okinawa with UDT-17.
Upon leaving the Navy, he entered the University of California at Berkeley, but his studies there were brief. Shortly after leaving Berkeley, he settled in his family's hometown Crockett, California, with his first wife, Shirley Green. They had one child, a daughter named Claire.
Ray was elected as the Constable of the Crockett Judicial District in Contra Costa County California. Ray drove his brother Guido to an audition for the film Saturday's Hero (1951). Director David Miller was more interested in Ray than his brother, because, it is rumored, of his voice, and hired him for the small role of a cynical college football player opposite John Derek and Donna Reed. Columbia Pictures wasted no time in signing Ray to an exclusive contract, and despite having no acting experience, Ray soon appeared in several films under his birth name, Aldo DaRe.
