Lowest Rated: 8% Pretty Maids All in a Row (1971)

Birthday: Jul 27, 1916

Birthplace: New York, New York, USA

Veteran character player from the stage, a prolific staple at MGM in the 1940s and 50s, mostly as pals to the male stars of the films in which he appeared, and later memorable as the absurdly earnest Army man who gives Peter Sellers a scare at the telephone booth in "Dr. Strangelove" (1963). Son of vaudevillian-turned-character-actor Ed Wynn ("The Diary of Anne Frank" 1959, "Mary Poppins" 1964, etc.) and father of Tracy Keenan Wynn (b. 1945), who wrote several films in the mid-1970s ("The Longest Yard" 1974, etc.).

QUOTES FROM Keenan Wynn CHARACTERS

Alonzo Hawk says: (He's in Rome; he sees the Coliseum) What a location.

Taxi Driver says: Ah, see, the mighty Coliseum. The Glory of Rome. Doesn't stir your imagination?

Alonzo Hawk says: You bet it does, baby. Do you realize what a shopping center we can put up there? Plenty of parking, too.

Alonzo Hawk says: (being stopped by a policeman in traffic) The traffic commissioner shall hear of this!

Traffic Commissioner says: I *am* the commissioner.

Alonzo Hawk says: Then what are you doing in that monkey suit? A traffic commissioner would dress in dignified clothes.

Traffic Commissioner says: This happen to be my dress uniform. I was on my way to the ceremony for I Am A Policeman Day.

Secretary says: I'm sorry, Mr. Hawk. I called the motel but they said that your nephew checked out.

Alonzo Hawk says: (angrily) What do you mean he's checked out? When? Where? Who told him that he could check out? How dare that he disappear when he knows that I'm worried sick? I'll tear his chicken-livered gizzard to pieces! I'll stomp him silly! I'll take this letter knife, and I'll stab that kid right in his ungrateful breastbone! You know me Millicent, normally I'm a kindly, fun-loving fellow! But when I get crossed...

Alonzo Hawk says: (weakly, slumping down at the desk)

Alonzo Hawk says: I go bananas.

Alonzo Hawk says: At the tender age of nineteen, I was the best known repossessor of cars west of the Mississippi. Hot-wire Hawk, they called me.

Alonzo Hawk says: Professor, I have suffered damages amounting to tens of thousands of dollars because of you. I could have you dragged off to jail and left there! But other than making me feel good all over - what would it get me?

Alonzo Hawk says: Professor, I have suffered damages amounting to tens of thousands of dollars because of you. I could have you dragged off to jail and left there! But other than making me feel good all over, what would it get me?

Col. Bat Guano says: Okay. I'm gonna get your money for ya. But if you don't get the President of the United States on that phone, you know what's gonna happen to you?

Group Capt. Lionel Mandrake says: What?

Col. Bat Guano says: You're gonna have to answer to the Coca-Cola company.
