Richard Frank was an American actor and a graduate of The Julliard School in New York City. He was perhaps best known as Father Vogler in the 1984 academy award winning movie Amadeus. Frank had numerous guest appearances in television shows including Remington Steele, Cagney and Lacey, Night Court, Valarie and the Larry Sanders Show along with a regular role in the sitcom Anything but Love. By 1993, Frank had gone public with his affliction with AIDS and to preserve his health he elected to move to the director's chair in 1995. That year, an episode of Mad About You he directed was slated to be the first of many such jobs for the actor, but ultimately it became his final work in show business.
