Personal Quote:

What's the secret to playing Sam Drucker? I just play myself. Sam Drucker and I are old friends. I played him on Petticoat Junction (1963), Green Acres (1965) and The Beverly Hillbillies (1962) and we were going strong until 1971, when Fred Silverman canceled every show with a tree in it.

Trivia:

Just prior to serving in WWII, he became a radio announcer and landed a job at KGDM in Stockton California. Eventually he moved on to KYA and subsequently to KGO in San Francisco. See more »
