Alphonso DeNoble (December 20, 1946 – November 1978) was an American actor. A resident of Paterson, New Jersey, he is most famous for playing the obese, cat-loving, landlord in Alfred Sole's 1976 horror film Alice, Sweet Alice. According to Alfred Sole, Alphonso made extra money by dressing up as a priest and hanging around cemeteries. Elderly widows would ask "Father Alphonso" for a blessing and offer him a donation for the church in return. He was also a bouncer at Paterson's only gay bar. Alphonso made two other film appearances—as the white slave dealer in Joel M. Reed's Blood Sucking Freaks (where he is credited only by his first name) and as the camera store proprietor in another Reed film, Night of the Zombies (1981)|Night of the Zombies, released in 1981. DeNoble died in 1978.
