Marshall Efron


Born - 3 February 1938, Los Angeles, California, USA
Died - 30 September 2019

Short, squat. dark-haired American funster, once described as 'the plump elf of comedy', who moved from teaching to acting to radio satire. Film appearances were almost inevitably confined to comic cameos, but there were quite a few for his fans to savour, beginning appropriately with Funnyman (1967). Later he popped up in Pound (1970), THX 1138 (1971), Doc (1971), Blade (1973), Baby Blue Marine (1976), California Dreaming (1979), The First Time (1983), Growing Pains (1984), Talking Walls (1987), Masters of Menace (1990), The Road to Wellville (1994), Cafe Society (1996), Two Family House (2000), Marie and Bruce (2004), The Thing About My Folks (2005), City Island (2009) and Rob the Mob (2014), his last, as well as providing voices for many feature cartoons. He died from cardiac arrest.
