He was also a regular on Canadian television - most Canucks would remember him from “Wayne and Shuster” and the Bell ads that he did in the 1980s. Here’s the CBC obit, which expands a bit from the MSNBC one.
May he rest in peace.
A quick search shows he was in The Sting. Who was he in The Sting? I wondered.
The Conductor (“That’ll get you first alternate, sir!”)
I probably saw him in a lot of things, but I don’t think I’d have recognized him. He seems to have done a lot of voice work (including voicing The Tin Man for cartoons. Twice.)
Oh…the grapplegrummits guy!
A line that will live in my heart forever. RIP Mr. Mann.
When I was a kid, I was watching the the 1960s movie “The Perils of Pauline,” there’s a scene in it with some Middle Eastern prince (probably about 10 years old). I remember thinking to myself, “He sounds just like Rocky (the squirrel).”
40 years later, I get to watch it again on one of the cable outlets, and I find that there are a fair number of uncredited roles in it. In one scene the prince’s father is bellowing, and I remember thinking, “That’s Yukon Cornelius!” And, I was also right about the prince. June Foray supplied his dubbed voice.
