Alan Young, 1919-2016

Alan Young, the actor who is probably best known for playing the businessman who owned talking horse Mr. Ed, died on Thursday at the age of 96.

British-born Young started his movie career at Fox, in the late 40s, but for the most part spent more time on the small screen than the big screen. He was the title character in Androcles and the Lion in the early 50s, and played opposite Rod Taylor in The Time Machine. Later in his career, he gained new fame for playing Scrooge McDuck in Mickey's Christmas Carol, a half-hour version of the classic Dickens story.
