Did You Know?


In the 1950s he was able to escape playing German officers for a time and focused on playing foreign-accented diplomats, scientists and doctors. His very last acting appearance, however, was, true to form, as a Nazi officer on a TV episode of "Garrison's Gorillas" in 1968. He then retired. See more »
