Allan Arbus

( b. Feb 15, 1918 New York, New York, USA - d. Apr 19, 2013 Los Angeles, California, USA ) Male
Allan Arbus left the successful fashion photography business he and his wife, Diane, built to become an actor. Mr. Arbus appeared in films like “Coffy” and “Crossroads” and was a TV regular during the 1970s and ’80s, appearing on “Taxi,” “Starsky & Hutch,” “Matlock” and other shows. But his best-known role was Major Freedman, the liberal psychiatrist who appeared in a dozen episodes of “M*A*S*H.” He treated wounds of the psyche much as Capt. Hawkeye Pierce treated surgery patients: with a never-ending string of zingers.

Mr. Arbus’s last television role was on the HBO series “Curb Your Enthusiasm” in 2000.
