Other works
Appeared on Broadway as "Nathan Detroit" in "Guys and Dolls" and starred in "Alan King as Mr. Goldwyn", portraying iconic movie mogul Samuel Goldwyn Jr..

In 1965, he starred in an unsold pilot, produced by Max Shulman, called "The Alan King Show" in which he played a taxi driver who moonlights as a chauffeur.

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.
