    Mr. Klugman was an exceptional talent and deserves to be heralded for the TV series in which he starred. Yet, it is unfortunate that most of his movie and stage work is often overlooked, as is much of his TV work in guest parts on other TV series. In the twenty or so years before “The Odd Couple”, Mr. Klugman made appearances in a plethera of TV shows, and while his name was unknown to many he was one of the countless character actors and actresses whose faces were familiar to almost every TV viewer in the 1950s and ’60s.
