Actor Marvin Kaplan dies at 89
Wonderful comic actor, probably best remembered for "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad, World." Marvin and Arnold Stang played a pair of gas station attendants whose gas station is destroyed single-handedly by Jonathan Winters.
From a mailing today by L.A. theatre company Theatre West:
