LOS ANGELES (AP) — Allan Arbus, who played the wise — and wisecracking — psychiatrist Dr. Sidney Freedman on TV's "M.A.S.H.," has died at age 95.

Arbus' daughter Arin told the Los Angeles Times Tuesday that her father died of congestive heart failure at his Los Angeles home Friday.

Arbus didn't begin acting until his 40s. He was a television regular who appeared on several series but was best known as Freedman, who counseled shell-shocked army surgeons on a dozen episodes of "M.A.S.H." between 1973 and 1983.

Before turning to Hollywood, the New York-born Arbus had a successful career as a fashion photographer.

After World War II, he started a studio with then-wife Diane Arbus. She would go on to become one of the most renowned art photographers of the 20th century.
