Anthony Eisley

Anthony Eisley was billed under his real name, Fred Eisley, for the first ten years or so of his acting career. After completing his studies at the University of Miami, Eisley did a lot of stage work, acting in off-Broadway plays. After doing a couple of small movie roles in the early 1950s, Eisley landed a spot on the cast of Ezio Pinza's live sit-com Bonino, but the show was quickly cancelled after its fall 1953 debut. Eisley returned to series television in early 1959 with the Jack Webb-produced Pete Kelly's Blues, but the series was cancelled in the summer of 1959. He is most famous for his portrayal of Tracy Steele on the 1959-1963 ABC series Hawaiian Eye, produced by Warner Bros. A spin-off of the 1958-1964 series 77 Sunset Strip and actually filmed in Burbank, Hawaiian Eye proved to be a popular show, lasting four seasons on ABC.

Anthony Eisley's film career slowed in the 1970s, yet he found plenty of work on television, both as a series cast member and as a guest star on popular TV programs such as Mary Tyler Moore, Ironside, Cannon, and The Dukes of Hazzard. He was reunited with his fellow Hawaiian Eye cast members, including Connie Stevens, Poncie Ponce, Troy Donahue, and Grant Williams, on a 1983 episode of Family Feud. His career in films and television continued through the early 1990s, when he retired from the screen.
