Stocky, bespectacled New York comic actor with distinctive Brooklyn tones discovered by Katharine Hepburn while performing in a play at USC. After she put him into his first film Adam's Rib (1949), he went on to perform in a number of loveable, sometime dim-witted roles on TV ("Alice") and in cartoons ("Top Cat").
Thick Brooklyn accent and equally thick, black horn-rimmed glasses
