To art aficionados, Allan Arbus may be primarily known as the former husband of legendary photographer Diane Arbus. But for avid television and film viewers, he is regarded as a prolific actor, best known for his recurring role on the beloved Korean War-set series "M*A*S*H*" (CBS, 1972-1983). Originally a photographer who collaborated with his wife, Arbus made an abrupt career shift to acting after their divorce. Working with writer/director Robert Downey, Sr., most notably in the lead role of the outlandish comedy "Greaser's Palace" (1972), Arbus went on to a slew of TV and film parts, making his biggest marks on "M*A*S*H*" and in supporting roles in the Blaxploitation movie "Coffy" (1973) and the drama "The Electric Horseman" (1979). He continued to act, mainly on the small screen, into his 80s, retiring in 2000. After a busy and eclectic career, Arbus died in 2013.
