Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Tony- and Oscar-nominated dwarf actor. A piano prodigy until disease crippled his elbows, Dunn subsequently enjoyed a singing career and appeared on the New York stage before entering films in 1961. Dunn is perhaps best remembered for his Oscar-nominated supporting turn as one of the observers of the many dramas peopling Stanley Kramer's "Ship of Fools" (1965), and for the delightful relish with which he attacked the role of the supremely villainous but extremely amusing Dr. Miguelito Loveless on ten episodes of the deliberately campy cult TV Western, "The Wild Wild West" (1965-70).
