Condolences to his son Adam and the rest of his family. A long life is often never enough for those who are left behind.


I also loved Catch-22 but Sunshine was my favorite.

I enjoyed him in "The Russians are Coming!  The Russians are coming". He was a talent.

@MamaWick - Me too.  The In-Laws. Soooooo good. Sooooo funny.

Why is it, when I have a 50/50 guess at something, I'm always 100% wrong?

My sister took me to see Wait Until Dark when I was a young kid. I was forever impressed that Alan Arkin was a creepy bad guy and never intentionally watched anything he was in.  I think I may have seen The In-laws and I remember him from Argo, but that's it, I think. He had a very full career.

A great actor who had a very successful career on Broadway and in the movies.


My favorite and to me one of the funniest movies of all time The Russians Are Coming The Russians Are Coming.  Seldom shown on TV but I love that movie and his role in it.

Stop being afraid of what could go wrong and start being positive what could go right.

Fabulous  actor, he did 2 seasons last few years on Kominsky Method,he was wonderful and great pairing with Michael Douglas. 

@Shelbelle , I really enjoyed that show...until he left; it just wasn't the same. His absence was certainly felt by me.
