Actor
    (August 26, 1919-July 4, 1999)
    Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
    Born Ronald Montcrief Stringer
    Appeared in ‘Won Ton Ton, the Dog Who Saved Hollywood,’ ‘The World’s Greatest Lover,’ ‘History of the World Part 1,’ ‘To Be or Not to Be (1983),’ ‘Spaceballs’ (also co-writer), and ‘Robin Hood: Men in Tights’
    Wrote episodes of Colgate Comedy Hour, M*A*S*H (also script consultant), the Mary Tyler Moore Show, and Brady Bunch Variety Hour
    Regular guest on The Tonight Show
    Compositions include ‘Bravo Giovanni,’ ‘It’s a Wonderful Day to Be Seventeen,’ ‘Lucky Pierre,’ ‘The Inquisition,’ and ‘I’m All I’ve Got’
    His first three wives – all divorces – combined to have five children.
    His nightclub acts specialized in sexy innuendo.
    Among his streak of failed plays were two that closed on opening night.
    In the late 1960s, he appeared in an Alka-Seltzer commercial (‘Spicy Meatball’) as a butterfingered director having issues with the clapperboard (directors’ slate).
    His final appearance would be in a Chicago Hope episode.
    He came by his talent honestly, accompanying his parents – who formed their own comedy team – on the vaudeville circuit.
    He credited Fats Waller records for his interest in jazz.
    He contributed lyrics and sketches to his Broadway debut (1952).
    In addition to co-authoring ‘The Inquisition’ (for ‘History of the World’), he was shown in the entr’acte as one of the strung-up Jewish prisoners (and one other role overall).
    His fourth – childless! – marriage went nearly the last third (or 25 years) of his life.
