Alda made his Broadway debut in Only in America (1959), and his film debut in Gone Are the Days (1963), but it was his extensive involvement in the television series M*A*S*H (1972??83) that earned him his greatest popularity.

Later films include Crimes and Misdemeanors (1990), Canadian Bacon (1995), What Women Want (2000), and The Aviator (2004, Best Supporting Actor Oscar nomination).
