I read that.
83 as I recall.
I hadn't heard or read anything about him in a while. And then last week I read the description of a semi-recent movie that he was in and was surprised he was still alive and making movies. And now he's gone.

"Serpentine. Serpentine." (I loved that movie with him and Alan Arkin. The In-laws or something?) My favorite line.

Babe,

That was way back in 1962!

In those days my TV was made out of wood

I remember him in Colombo. I just saw him in an old comedy a while ago, 'Murder by Death." That was a good movie and I had forgotten he was in it.
