Personal Details

Other Works:

In 1972, he produced an unsold pilot called "The Bar" about a bartender, played by Fred Gwynne, who got involved with his patrons problems - usually not to their benefit. He recast the pilot, and the sitcom became "The Corner Bar", starring Gabriel Dell in the summer of 1972 and Anne Meara and Eugene Roche in the summer of 1973. See more »

Personal Quote:

[to a 1960s all-black audience] Before I go any further, you should understand you've been backing the wrong 'King'. He wants to get you into Woolworth's. I'll get you into '21'. See more »

Trivia:

In January 1961, he was the emcee for a portion of President John F. Kennedy's inaugural party. See more »
