Jack Albertson (1907 - 81)

Jack Albertson is one out of three actors to win an Emmy, a Tony and an Oscar. A veteran of burlesque, vaudville, and broadway, it is somewhat ironic that this talented preformer is probably most recognizable to audiences for his role (for which he got the Emmy) on the 1970's sitcom "Chico and the Man", playing the role of 'the Man'. Jack Albertson made his film debut in 1954 in the picture Top Banana, recreating the same part that he played in the broadway production of the film. Albertson was most comfortable in comedic roles, although he did dramatic parts also. Besides winning the Oscar for his preformance in the film, The Subject was Roses, he also won the Tony for his preformance in the Broadway production of it.
