My obituary of the actor Arnold Stang is in today's Independent; you can pound the link here. By some weird fluke of online subbing, the website headline calls him Arnold Strang (the print edition has it correct), which almost describes his voice...add an e to the end and he could have been a more exotic character. I seem to recall that, as Stang exclaimed 'what a chunka chocolate' singers in the background purred 'open wide for Chunky', but I could be conflating two commercials. I was a huge Gildersleeve fan as a kid; I'm going to have to find that movie....
