Norman Lloyd was born in Jersey City, New Jersey, to Sedia and Max Lloyd. His family was Jewish. He began his acting career in the theater, first "treading the boards" at Eva Le Gallienne's Civic Repertory in New York. Aspiring to work as a classical repertory player, he gradually shed his Brooklyn accent and became a busy stage actor in the 1930s; he next joined the original company of the Orson Welles-John HousemanMercury Theatre. Lloyd was brought to Hollywood to play a supporting part (albeit the title role) in Alfred Hitchcock's Cinquième colonne (1942). Hitchcock, who later used the actor in La maison du docteur Edwardes (1945) and other films, made him an associate producer and a director on TV's long-running Alfred Hitchcock présente (1955) (then in its third year). In the course of his eight years on the series, Lloyd became a co-producer (with Joan Harrison) and then executive producer. He has since directed for other series (including the prestigious Omnibus (1952)) and for the stage, produced TV's Bizarre, bizarre (1979) and Journey to the Unknown (1968), and played Dr. Auschlander in TV's acclaimed Hôpital St. Elsewhere (1982). - IMDb Mini Biography
