Did You Know?


Dark, chunky, raucous comic actor of the 1950s and '60s who provided lip service in a wise-guy vein on stage ("Stalag 17"), screen (Stalag 17 (1953), all the Beach Party movies as the inept Hells' Angels-like Eric Von Zipper), and TV (The Phil Silvers Show (1955)). Very reminiscent of John Belushi. See more »
