NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) - The actor who portrayed what some would would say was one of television’s most memorable recurring characters has died.
Allan Arbus, perhaps most famous for playing psychiatrist Maj. Sidney Freedman on “M*A*S*H,” died Friday in Los Angeles, the New York Times reported. He was 95.
“M*A*S*H” aired on CBS from 1972 to 1983 and was based on the film of the same name, which was itself based on the book by Richard Hooker.
