Doing the math, it's still amazing to think he was just 37 in "It's a Mad..."

Then again he served a couple of years as a Marine in the Pacific during WWII and that tended to add 10+ years of looks to most men.

Try mentioning Jack Benny, Red Skelton, Groucho Marx, the Bowery Boys. They put a tombstone on my desk and draped black crepe over my chair. But you know what? I'd rather be old and have grown up with yesterday's comics than be young with today's " funny " men. All trash talk straight from the cess pool.

The man was certifiably insane - and a comic genius. He could morph into any character literally on demand.

Am I the only one who's seen The Loved One? http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0059410/  Winters played a dual role in this.

Really weird, uncomfortable movie. If you like that type of flick, it's worth seeing "The Loved One" at least once.

The first comedians whose names I learned - and this will show just how old I am - were the Smothers Brothers, Bill Cosby,...and Jonathan Winters.  He was a ray of delirious, demented sunlight in a dark world, and I know of no one who can fill his shoes.

Worth watching. Deep weird.
It doesn't get much weirder that Rod Steiger as Mr JoyBoy and his 500 lb mother clawing handfuls of meat out of a roast suckling pig and eating it as a crow pecks out of one of the pig's eyes.

With red protruding eyeballs
And black protruding tongue."

Don't.

It's a great movie. One of the all-time great comedies.

But it hasn't aged well. It's much better in your memory than it will be on your screen.

Loved him on "The Davis Rules" - the Emmy he won was richly deserved. Pretty funny show by itself, but the real fun was waiting for him to pull off an ad-lib and watch the rest of the cast corpsing like crazy.

Texasgurl24: He was genius in It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World.


He stole that movie, and when you consider that cast involved, that is quite a feat.

"When I find that man, the yellow-belly who double crossed me, when I catch him, I just hope that you look away. That's all, I just really hope that you look away."

"Look, Pike. I 'm really sorry we left you out there. I wanted to pick you up, but my mother in law..."
"Listen. Anything you have to say about your mother in law, you don't have to explain to me. Like if you were to tell me that she was the star of a really crummy horror movie, I'd believe it."
