Bert Kramer was great as Alex Wheeler on the short-lived soap Texas. He was old school, reminiscent of of Joseph Cotton and some of the more classic Hollywood actors. I was always surprised he didn't have more of a career. He mostly played bit parts and supporting roles on television and in film. In addition to Texas, he played on The Young and the Restless. Kramer was born in San Diego, California on October 10, 1934 and died of cancer June 20, 2001 in Los Angeles, California. His original name was Albert George Kohnhorst.
