Actor. He will be best remembered for his role of Crazy Cat in the TV Comedy series "F Troop" (1965 to 1967). His father was a Russian-born American who served during World War I and later became a clothing retailer, Diamond was raised in Brooklyn and learned to speak Yiddish fluently. After receiving his bachelor's degree in Drama from the University of Michigan, he served with the US Army Air Corps during World War II. It would be at this period when he became enthralled with the culture of Mexico and studied the Spanish language. Upon returning home, he began appearing on radio which led to his lengthy television career initiated with a part in "The Lone Ranger", followed by the featured role of El Toro in the series "The Adventures of Kit Carson" (1951 to 1955). During the later part of the decade, he was familiar to TV audiences for his part of Corporal Reyes in "Zorro" (1958 to 1959). Among his motion picture credits are "The Old Man and the Sea" (1958), "The Story of Ruth" (1960) and "Viva Max" (1969). (bio by: C.S.)
