By age 12, he was on the Broadway stage, and in 1929, he became one of the first performers seen on the then-experimental medium of television. Already a popular stage and radio comedian, he began playing adult roles in films such as Tall, Dark and Handsome (1941), but it was in early television that Berle made an indelible mark.
As host of "The Milton Berle Show," chewing a cigar and often in drag, "Uncle Miltie" ruled the small screen for most of a decade. He continued to appear on TV shows of all kinds and in occasional films through the '90s. Berle died at age 94 on March 27, 2002.
Before literally kicking the bucket when his car careens off an embankment, "Smiler" Grogan tells onlookers he's stashed $350,000 beneath the big "W" in Santa Rosita -- and thus begins a mad dash to recover said dough.
