Kenneth Mars, Comedic Actor in TV and Film, Dies 75

Postby Steve Sanderson » Wed Feb 16, 2011 12:36 pm

From my friends at hollywoodmemoir.com

Kenneth Mars (April 14, 1936 – February 12, 2011) was an American television, movie and voice actor. He may be best-remembered for his roles in several Mel Brooks films: the insane Nazi playwright Franz Liebkind in 1968's The Producers, and the relentless Police Inspector Hans Wilhelm Fredrich Kemp in 1974's Young Frankenstein.

Two great Kenneth Mars quotes.

From "The Producers" (as Franz Liebkind):

"I vaz never a member of the Nazi party! I had nossing to do vith the var! I didn't even know there vas a var on! Vee lived in zee back... near Svitzerland! All vee ever heard vas yodeling!"

...and from "Young Frankenstein" ( as Inspector Kemp):

"A riot is an ugly thing... undt, I tink, that it is chust about time ve had vun."
"You don't know man! I was in radio man! I've seen things you wouldn't believe!"
