Ed Wynn
[Ed Wynn]
November 9, 1886 - June 19, 1966
Born Isaiah Edwin Leopold, Ed was billed in vaudeville and the Ziegfeld Follies as "the Perfect Fool." More a clown, than a comedian in style, he later developed as a character actor.
Host of a variety series, "The Ed Wynn Show" (1949), and later star of a situation comedy show, "The Ed Wynn Show" (1958-1959), Wynn is perhaps best remembered for his role as Uncle Albert in "Mary Poppins" (1964) as well as the likeness and voice of the Mad Hatter in Walt Disney’s animated "Alice in Wonderland" (1951). He received a Best Supporting Actor Oscar nomination for his role as Mr. Albert Dussell in "The Diary of Anne Frank" (1959).
The epitaph on his niche at Forest Lawn, Glendale, California reads: "Dear God, Thank You."
