I was surprised at his age. I remember him as the psychiatrist Sidney Freedman in M*A*S*H and he looked like a man in his 40s back then, when he was really 60 or so. Excellent actor and photographer.

He was a WWII Photographer . The interesting thing is that he wanted to be a musician when he was in his teens .However ,photography was his great love.

I didn't respond earlier because I didn't know who Arbus was. Dave solved that issue and I'm even more surprised than Dave. I am absolutely shocked to learn he was 95. Like Dave, I thought the guy who played "Dr. Friedman" was about 40 then.

May he rest in peace.

In my opinion he was a great actor who was not appreciated by the public.
