An old Pittsburger with a long film and TV history, of which The Riddler was, perhaps, his most popular role.

See you on the flip-side Frank. :(

I thought he was funny. He used to do a mean Kirk Douglas.

I sure would have liked to see his interpretation of George Burns in "Goodnight Gracie".

Boy, looking back on some of his works envokes some real memories.....

Well, while I didn't get to see that particular interpretation, I did see his cameo appearance on one of the Season Finals where he did Ed Sullivan (as he was sitting at a table with some other actors in this scene).

It was such a rush when I recognized him.

One of the World's finest has indeed left our midst...

His last role aired last night - he had a part on the season finale of CSI. May be the part pendanticist was refering to.

Yup. That be the one. He looked so frail and gaunt, (much like Jerry Orbach, who played the part of Lenny Brisko, just prior to his own recent death), but I recognized him immediately.

Somewhere in the back of my mind, I actually see Frank Gorshin impersonating Ed Sullivan on "The Ed Sullivan Show". I see that very clearly, just not sure if it's accurate memory or not. :)

Loved him..Sad to hear this ..I seem to remember him doing a whole pile of his amazing impressions on an Andy Williams show ..about the time they had Captain Weird.
