This is what wiki says about it:




Komack was widely believed to be the illegitimate son of Milton Berle. In his autobiography, Berle describes an encounter with the producer of a hit 1970's show, (probably Welcome Back Kotter) and got pitched for a role in another series (probably "The Man" in Chico in the Man). Berle said he didn't know the guy already had a hit show and was probably trying to hustle him to get a leg up as a producer. He wrote that it wasn't until later that he learned that this was the illegitimate son whom he had pined for ever since he'd had an affair with a would-be movie starlet back in the 1920s. By the time he came around, the role was cast with someone else - probably Jack Albertson.


And this:




Milton Berle (July 12, 1908 ? March 27, 2002)



In 1916, Berle enrolled in the Professional Children's School, and at age 12 he made his stage debut in Florodora. After four weeks in Atlantic City, New Jersey, the show moved to Broadway. It catapulted him into a comedic career that spanned eight decades in nightclubs, Broadway shows, vaudeville, Las Vegas, films, television and radio.

Well, we ALL know the "legend" of Miltie's enormity.


And I'm suspicious of anything I read on wiki....unresearched "facts" and a lot of opinion are often the bulk of contributions.

No, I've never heard it, but if it's about Frank, I could handle it. Just please, no personal info on Mickey Rooney.
