Keenan Wynn began his career as "Ed Wynn's Son" but made himself into one of the world's most respected character actors.

He is probably best remembered for his roles in such classics as a paranoid paratroop officer in "Dr. Strangelove" and the greedy fight handler in the classic television production of "Requiem for a Heavyweight."

The half-century of his active career was remarkably prolific, with appearances in more than 250 television shows, 100 stage productions and 220 motion pictures, including "The Hucksters," "Finian's Rainbow," "Kiss Me, Kate," "The Great Race," "Annie Get Your Gun," "The Great Man," "A Hole in the Head," "The Americanization of Emily," "Once Upon a Time in the West," "Nashville," "Just Tell Me What You Want" and "Best Friends."
