Milo O. Frank


Milo O. Frank, a writer-producer and agent for Humphrey Bogart, Marilyn Monroe and Joel McCrea, died June 13 in Beverly Hills from Parkinson’s disease. He was 82.

Interment services are scheduled for June 25 at Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery, Point Loma, Calif.

At the William Morris Agency in the 1950s, Frank represented top actors, producers and directors. He left the agency biz to take a newly created position as head of talent and casting for the CBS Television Network in New York and Los Angeles.

Among his credits were “The Ed Sullivan Show,” “Red Skelton,” “Studio One,” and “Playhouse 90.”

As a writer-producer, he optioned the novel “The Vikings” and sold his script to Kirk Douglas and United Artists. Other producing credits include “The High Cost of Loving,” starring Jose Ferrer and Gena Rowlands. He was involved in the production of sci-fier “Village of the Damned” and wife-swapping indie “All the Loving Couples.”

Frank also was in charge of production for Cinerama, working in that capacity in the U.S. and Europe.

He later went on to a career as a communications consultant both in the U.S. and abroad, working with such orgs as Lockheed and Singapore Airlines, and also furnished consultation and skills training to Sen. Bob Dole, Attorney General William French Smith and California Gov. Pete Wilson.

Born in New York, he attended USC, UCLA and the U. of Colorado and was a student at the U.S. Naval School of Oriental Languages.

Frank is survived by his wife, actress Sally Forrest.
