Really sorry to hear that. He was wonderful as the uber-imposing protective father in The Heartbreak Kid with Chaz Grodin and Cybil Shephard.

Sorry to hear he died but is 99 his correct age? I was reading about him on another web site and his date of birth was listed as April 22, 1908.

He was also great as the cowardly officer who betrays Jack Palance in Robert Aldrich's ATTACK!

Mrs. Pusser just told me about this. She heard on the radio that he was 99.






Guess he'll soon be buried in Green Acres.
