Profile Bio Text
Allan Arbus (born February 15, 1918) is an American actor notable for his role as psychiatrist Dr. Sidney Freedman on the television series M*A*S*H. Arbus` acting career took off after he landed the lead role in Robert Downey Sr.`s cult film Greaser`s Palace in 1972, starred opposite Bette Davis in Scream, Pretty Peggy in 1973, and was featured as Gregory LaCava in W.C. Fields and Me in 1976. These led to his continuing role as Maj. Sidney Freedman on M*A*S*H, although in an early episode, titled "Radar`s Report" (1973) he was called "Milton Freedman." This role would lead to other television and film works, which include a brief appearance in the 1973 film Cinderella Liberty as a drunken sailor. Arbus is also seen in the 1973 film Coffy (starring Pam Grier), where he plays a drug-dealer with strange sexual needs. He also played the minor role of Pasarian in the 1978 movie Damien: Omen II, one of Damien`s many victims in The Omen trilogy. Diane and Allan Arbus` studio/living quarters were at one time at 319 East 72nd Street in New York City. Their neighbor and friend was Robert Brown, an actor from the TV show Here Come the Brides.
