|Birth Place:||Baltimore, Maryland, USA||Profession:||Cast ... actor radio performer|
This tall, sharp-tongued radio performer ("My Friend Irma" and "Burns and Allen") entered films in 1938. A smoothly versatile character actor with angular features, a distinctive, clipped diction and facility at foreign accents, Conried was adept at comedy and also often portrayed film Nazis. Later he was a frequent panelist on TV quiz shows of the 1950s and is probably best remembered for the outlandish title role of the Dr. Seuss classic "The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T" (1953) and as the acerbic Uncle Tonoose on TV's "Make Room for Daddy" (1958-64).
