The late actor and comedian Morey Amsterdam would have been 104 today, December 14, 2012. Amsterdam, who played Buddy Sorrel on The Dick Van Dyke Show, had a long career leading up to that. He got his start in vaudeville at the age of 14.
His own show, The Morey Amsterdam Show, ran on CBS television from December 1948 to March 1949 and on DuMont from April 1949 to October 1950. Watch this clip showing Amsterdam with a young Jacqueline Susann!
