Buttons definitely had a long career in various fields of entertainment -- he certainly was a survivor. Growing up, I remember him as being a funny guy on TV and giving some memorable performances in films, particularly in Sayonara and a few others. However, some of his films still get shown on TCM and FMC a lot, and his comic style just does not wear well today -- he tends to push too hard for laughs -- his performances in dramatic roles come off somewhat better IMO.

The main point of my original post is that I just can't see him pulling off Pseudolus in Forum, and he would have been woefully inadequate as Tevye in Fiddler.
