Famous File: Felice Orlandi

Located at Oak Hill Cemetery in Siloam Springs, AR.
After his death his ashes were scattered under an orange tree in the backyard of his and Alice's home. Upon the death of his wife this Centopha was added to the back of Alice and Glady's gravestone for him.

Who was Felice Orlandi? Good question, sadly finding information on him has been rather challenging.  Being famous and having stared in a number of movies and TV shows there sure isn't much on the net about him. Mostly all I can find is "married to Alice Ghostley" and a list of roles he played. 

This is the description i found on Life in Legacy - Actor who appeared in dozens of movies and TV shows like the films “Bullitt”, “They Shoot Horses Don’t They?”, “Catch-22” and “Another 48 Hours”, and TV shows like “Hogan’s Heros”, “Dallas” and “Gunsmoke”, and who was the husband of actress Alice Ghostley

He does have a Find A Grave memorial.

I did locate Felice's obit but it's not much.

  1. What a handsome man he was! I recognized him from several photos of roles he'd played, but didn't know his name and never knew he was Ailce Ghostley's husband. I hope they shared a beautiful life together, she just seemed like such a delightful person
