Two great character actors have died, Jack Klugman and Charles Durning. Reading about Mr. Durning, I was surprised to learn he survived harrowing experiences as a combat infantryman in northern Europe during World War II. His memories of the war haunted him, and he repressed them, never speaking of them publicly. I respect that. It reminds me of my own father’s reaction to time he spent in the same theater. Mr. Klugman and Mr. Durning brought their audiences a lot of pure joy, and they will be remembered.
