Interesting Facts

1 Acting mentor of Danny Thomas and Harry Morgan.
2 With the encouragement of Danny Thomas, he chose to become an actor.
3 Danny Thomas was said to be his mentor, and had a lot in common with his family.
4 Since the early 1990s, he has battled severe rheumatoid arthritis in his hands.
5 Was in attendance at the "Miracle on Ice" game between the USA vs USSR at the Olympics in Lake Placid NY. He said that there was a ticket available but he ended up on the Russian side surrounded by Soviet dignitaries.
6 Mentioned by 'Weird Al' Yankovic in the lyrics of the track, "Everything You Know is Wrong", on his "Bad Hair Day" album.
7 Best remembered by the public for his role as "Corporal (later Sergeant) Max Klinger" on the television series M*A*S*H (1972).
8 In the later years of M*A*S*H (1972), especially after he took on the role of company clerk when "Radar" (Gary Burghoff) left, he stopped his recurring gag of wearing women's clothes because he didn't want his children being teased about it growing up.
9 Endorsed the Mars candy bar in the early 80s.
10 Is on the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital Professional Advisory Board. [2005]
11 His M*A*S*H (1972) character was originally only supposed to be on one episode, but he proved so popular that he returned as a day player, and Farr was finally given a contract in year 3.
12 Biography in: "Who's Who in Comedy" by Ronald L. Smith, pg. 154. New York: Facts on File, 1992. ISBN 0816023387
13 Farr thought at first the women's wardrobe in his dressing room meant he'd be sharing the room with a woman, but was surprised to learn otherwise. Not wanting to play a cross-dresser in the typical girlish way, he suggested to the producers that his character be manly, but crazy, thinking his clothes and other quirks were normal. The unusual spin worked.
14 Grandfather of Dorian.
15 Father of son, Jonas Farr, and daughter, Yvonne Farr.
16 Served a two-year stretch in the U. S. Army in Japan during the Korean War
17 Worked as a delivery person for a lithograph company, a post office clerk, an Army-surplus store clerk, an airline reservations clerk, and an employee at a chinchilla ranch
18 Attended the Pasadena Playhouse
19 He graduated from Woodward High School with honors and was named most outstanding student. In addition to writing and acting in two variety shows, Jamie was a member of the Drama Society, class president for three years, feature editor of the school newspaper, president of the radio class, manager of the football and basketball teams and a member of the varsity tennis team.
20 He has an older sister, Yvonne.
21 Only son of Samuel, a Lebanese meat cutter and grocer, and Jamelia Farah, a seamstress
22 Has an LPGA tournament named in his honor, the Jamie Farr Owens Corning Classic (formerly the Jamie Farr Kroger Classic)
23 Was one of two cast members of the original M*A*S*H (1972) television cast to have actually served in the armed forces in Korea; Farr's tour of duty came in the years after the war. Alan Alda served a six month tour as a gunnery officer in Korea. In addition, the dog tags Farr wore on the M*A*S*H (1972) set were actually his issued set from his time in the Army.


1 Thick, nasally voice.
2 His nose. (Frequently the subject of many jokes on M*A*S*H (1972). In one episode Klinger says his nose even has its own serial number).


1 [Of Harry Morgan]: Harry was the father figure, he passed away. We've all been through the internet, exchanging our thought about our friend. So meaningful he was to us, as individuals to the show, to the cast. We had so many great stories about him. He was a father figure for us.
2 [on the death of his professional on- and off-screen chemistry with Harry Morgan, who played Col. Sherman Potter]: Harry was very special to all of us cast members. Not only was he a wonderful performer that made such a difference ... he was a dear friend to every cast member. He was absolutely a pixie, a gremlin as mischievous as all get out. You couldn't be around Harry for very long without wanting to embrace him and I think our Lord will feel the same way.
3 [on life after M*A*S*H (1972)] It's a difficult thing to overcome, but I've been quite fortunate. I haven't been out of work, literally since "M*A*S*H" went out of production.
4 [on doing theater] When you leave the theater, you didn't see Klinger, you saw George Burns or you saw Applegate.
5 [on playing himself with Rodney Dangerfield in a special] I gave a line reading, and he turned to me and said, "No, you wouldn't say it that way".
6 [on Loretta Swit] She was funny and beautiful. A body that just makes a man feel like a real man.
7 [on what happened to all the dresses after the show ended] I took them home, okay? Is that what you wanted to hear? Actually, all those dresses were mine. I used my own dresses, bras, panties, hats and shoes.
8 [asked if he enjoyed wearing womens clothes on M*A*S*H (1972)] I was doing that before the show. It was a delight.
9 [on why he did Circus of the Stars (1977)] I looked good in the tights. Plus, I have a thing for a woman in clown makeup.
10 The benefits from stardom as Klinger outweigh any setbacks. It's a double-edged sword. What makes you famous is what interferes with getting other roles. But there are things that never would have happened without M*A*S*H (1972). There certainly would be no Jamie Farr Kroger Golf Classic.
