Allan Arbus, remembered for his recurring role as psychiatrist Major Sidney Freedman on the long-running TV series MASH, has died. His daughter, Arin Arbus, tells the LA Times her father died from complications of congestive heart failure on Friday at his Los Angeles home. He was 95. Arbus, a New York City native, most recently appeared in 2000 as Uncle Nathan on HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm. He appeared in just 12 episodes of MASH (1972-1983) as Sidney Freedman, who doctors called on when they needed help with a tough psychological case, but it remains ones of his most memorable roles. His dozens of other TV credits include Taxi, Wonder Woman, Matlock, Judging Amy and NYPD Blue. He also appeared in the films Coffy, Crossroads, Damien: Omen II, The Electric Horseman, and Gangster Wars. His most recent feature role was Father Time in 1999’s Making Contact.
