Red Buttons Dies at 87
After making his name as a vaudeville comedian, Buttons became a TV regular after he served in World War Two, eventually landing his own show, "The Red Buttons Show" in 1952. Three seasons after the show debuted, flagging ratings prompted Buttons to turn his attention to the movies and his Oscar-winning performance helped earn him movie acclaim.
Film highlights included Hatari, The Poseidon Adventure and They Shoot Horses, Don't They? His final acting role came on medical drama ER in 2005, when he returned as recurring character Jules Rubadoux.
