Arnold Stang

Suffolk County

Death: Dec. 20, 2009

Actor. His small stature, spectacles and nasal voice typed him in comedic roles, often as a sidekick. Raised in Brooklyn, Stang began his career at the age of 9 when he won an audition to appear on the children's radio program "Let's Pretend". A graduate from New Utrecht High School, he appeared on numerous radio shows throughout the 1930s and 1940s, including "The Henry Morgan Show". He started his Hollywood career in such films as "Seven Days' Leave", (1942), "Let's Go Steady" (1945) and "So This Is New York" (1948), and gained Broadway experience with performances in the short-lived productions "All in Favor" (1942) and "You'll See Stars" (1942 to 1943). The 1950s found him in high demand, as he frequented such small screen programs as "The Goldbergs", "The Milton Berle Show" and "December Bride". He showed versatility with his role as 'Sparrow' the devoted companion to Frank Sinatra in the highly charged drama "The Man with the Golden Arm" (1955). Stang would utilize his voice as he lent it to many animated TV series including "Herman and Katnip" (as Herman), "Top Cat" (title role) and "The Pink Panther Show". In addition, he is known for his work in television commercials including Chunky candy bars. He may be best remembered by many for his role as the service station co-owner along with Marvin Kaplan, whose characters are hilariously assaulted by Jonathan Winters in the star-studded picture "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World" (1963). In 1969, he returned to the Broadway stage performing in the production "The Front Page", and continued to appear in a wide range of films and television programs until the early 2000s. He died from complications of pneumonia. (bio by: C.S.)
