Actor Jack Klugman passed away today at the age of 90.
Originally a stage actor, Klugman appeared in such films as 12 Angry Men, The Days of Wine & Roses and Goodbye, Columbus.
But Klugman is perhaps best known for his work in television. He made several appearances on The Twilght Zone. I personally remember watching one episode many years ago in which he played a trumpet player at the end of his rope.
From 1970 to 1975, Klugman was one half of The Odd Couple playing the slovenly Oscar Madison to Tony Randall’s Felix Unger. Klugman had actually played Madison in the original Broadway production replacing Walter Matthau. After The Odd Couple left the airwaves, Klugman starred in Quincy, M.E. from 1976 to 1983. Klugman was also a frequent panelist on The Match Game.
I leave you with Klugman talking about Chanukah.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
