He appeared in numerous films such as The Princess Bride, The Great Race, It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World, A Woman Under the Influence, and Murder by Death, as well as many television guest roles. He was nominated for an Academy Award twice (for 1960's Murder, Inc. and 1961's Pocketful of Miracles), and he won the Emmy Award on five occasions (four for Columbo) and the Golden Globe Award once.
