Paul Mazursky was an actor, an Oscar-nominated producer and screenwriter, and a well-regarded director -- a quadruple threat. Born in 1930, his first screen credit dates back 61 years to 1953 in Stanley Kubrick's "Fear and Desire." Paul Mazursky died today, aged 84.
For about a decade, during television's first Golden Age, Mazursky worked mainly as a television actor with credits familiar to anyone enamored with that marvelous era: "The United Steel Hour," "The Steve Allen Plymouth Show," "Dick Powell Theatre," and "General Electric Theater," among others.
