Jack Klugman


Born - 27 April 1922, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA
Died - 24 December 2012

A lugubrious American character star with thinning dark hair, Klugman, though his face was familiar to all, was never really a man of the cinema, more a stalwart of the theatre and (somewhat reluctantly) television, where he had two of his greatest successes in the long running series The Odd Couple and Quincy, M.E.. Born Jacob Klugman, he began acting on stage in the late 1940s, TV from 1950 and made a rather inauspicious film debut in the low-budget western Apache Gold (1952). Subsequent movies, certainly fewer than one remembers, included Timetable (1955), 12 Angry Men (1957), Cry Terror! (1958), Days of Wine and Roses (1962), The Yellow Canary (1963), Hail Mafia (1965), The Split (1968), The Detective (1968), Goodbye, Columbus (1969), Barney (1971), Two-Minute Warning (1976), Dear God (1996), When Do We Eat? (2005) and Camera Obscura (2010), his last.
