Wild-haired, pop-eyed British comedian Marty Feldman dropped out of school at 15 in hopes of becoming a jazz trumpeter. Instead he found steady work as a radio comedy writer, first for the popular BBC weekly Educating Archie (which in the tradition of Edgar Bergen starred a ventriloquist and his dummy), and most famously for Kenneth Horne's Round the Horne, which ran from 1965 to 1969. Round the Horne would become something of a cult favorite when it was rebroadcast on American public radio in the 1970s to capitalize on Feldman's latter-day fame. Toiling away on many of Britain's best satirical TV and radio series of the 1960s, Feldman avoided the cameras, feeling that he was a bit too grotesque-looking for public consumption. Once he did start acting as well as writing, the public loved him and begged for more. His biggest British TV break was The Marty Feldman Comedy Machine, in which he appeared in lightning-paced sketches (often artificially sped up, "Benny Hill" style) with some of the best English comedy talent available, most notably the great Spike Milligan. Feldman was introduced to American TV audiences when he co-starred on Dean Martin Presents the Golddiggers in London, the 1970 summer replacement for The Dean Martin Show (an Americanized Marty Feldman Comedy Machine would be broadcast briefly two years later). Having made his film debut in The Bed Sitting Room (1969), Feldman became a U.S. movie favorite with his role as Igor, Gene Wilder's bemused hunchbacked assistant (whose hump switched shoulders from scene to scene), in director Mel Brooks' Young Frankenstein (1973). Feldman later co-starred with Brooks and Dom DeLuise as a Ritz Brothers-like team of movie producers in Silent Movie (1975); his manic tango with Anne Bancroft, wherein the actress deftly imitated Feldman's cross-eyed squint, was the highlight of the film. In 1977, Feldman followed the footsteps of fellow Mel Brooks alumnus Gene Wilder by directing as well as starring in The Last Remake of Beau Geste (1977), an uneven but hilarious spoof in which Feldman cast himself as the twin brother of Michael York! A second directorial effort, the organized-religion takeoff In God We Trust (1979), was such a disaster that Feldman was obliged to confine himself to acting assignments for the rest of his career. While filming the all-star "comedy salad" Yellowbeard in Mexico City, Feldman died suddenly of heart failure. He is buried at Hollywood's Forest Lawn Cemetery in close proximity to the grave of his lifelong idol, Buster Keaton.

  • Died in Mexico City of shellfish poisoning on the last day of filming a scene from Yellowbeard (1983), in which he was supposed to die. A double completed the death scene. His illness was discovered by filmmaker Michael Mileham who had also suffered from the same poisoning but survived.
  • Buried in Forest Lawn near his idol, Buster Keaton
  • Interred at Forest Lawn - Hollywood Hills, Los Angeles, California - Garden of Heritage, Lot 5420
  • When presenting the 1976 Live Action Short Oscar, he called the two winning producers to the stage, threw the statue to the floor, then handed a shard of the award to each one. He said, "It said, 'Made in Hong Kong' on the bottom."
  • Despite persistent published reports. Marty Feldman was NOT the brother of actress Fenella Fielding. The two are not related in any way.
  • Biography in: "Who's Who in Comedy" by Ronald L. Smith, pg. 157-158. New York: Facts on File, 1992. ISBN 0816023387
  • In his DVD commentary for Young Frankenstein (1974), director Mel Brooks provides a further explanation for his early death. According to Brooks, Feldman smoked about half a carton of cigarettes a day and drank copious amounts of black coffee (the tannic acid in coffee, which can be partly neutralized by milk, increases the risk of heart attack). He was also vegetarian and compensated for the lack of meat in his diet by eating large amounts of eggs and dairy products, clogging his arteries. The high altitude of Mexico City, where Feldman was filming Yellowbeard (1983), would have added still more stress by forcing his heart and lungs to work harder. The food poisoning would only have been the final straw, which would explain why Mileham survived.
  • Subject of a novelty song by Bruce Baum. The song was a parody of the hit "Bette Davis Eyes" by Kim Carnes ("All the boys think she's a guy / she's got Marty Feldman eyes").
