    Biography

    Norman Lloyd was born in 1914 in New Jersey. After graduating from NYU, he worked with Eva LeGalleine's Repertory group. In 1937, along with Orson Welles and John Houseman, Lloyd founded The Mercury Theater. During the ensuing years he appeared in dozens of plays on Broadway and throughout the US. Between 1942 and 1952 he acted in several films, but was best known for his film debut in the Alfred Hitchcock film, Saboteur (1942). Lloyd re-teamed with Hitchcock as an actor, director and executive producer for the long-running TV series, Alfred Hitchcock Presents. He started his affiliation with the Hollywood Television Theatre in 1972 where he directed, produced, and eventually became executive producer. He continued directing episodic television throughout the 1970s and 1980s, and was known for his role as Dr. Daniel Auschlander on the television series St. Elsewhere (1982-88).
    Hollywood Television Theatre originated in the early 1970s on KCET, the Los Angeles public broadcasting station. The dramatic anthology series aired from 1970 to 1978 presenting original plays and established dramas.
