I always loved Red Buttons. He was great in movies like "The Longest Day" (" Loud and Clear, sir!" and the Poseidon Adventure, but he was also great on all the TV shows I remember from when I was a kid. He'd be on Johnny Carson, Dean Martin, even Laugh-in. A funny, Funny guy, especially for an old guy. The Times did a nice Obit for him, and it's worth reading.
This has been on my dvr for several days and I finally was able to spare the time to actually pay attention to what has become my favorite show on tv, even if nobody that I know outside of my family has ever heard of the show.
