(né Mendel Berlinger, 1908-fl. 1997)
“Uncle Miltie” is best remembered for his work on The Texaco Star Theatre in the early days of network television from the late 1940s. Berle had, however, had a career in vaudeville, as well as a relatively lackluster career in radio in the 1930s.
Berle is caricatured as Milton Squirrel in The Woods Are Full of Cuckoos (Tashlin, 1937).
