Zero Mostel Facts
He testified before the House Un-American Activities Committee on October 14, 1955. In a playful mood, he told the Committee that he was employed by "19th Century-Fox." He told the Committee that he would gladly discuss his own conduct but was prohibited by religious convictions from naming others. His refusal to name names resulted in his "blacklisting," and he did not star in a film for another 11 years.

According to his wishes, he had no funeral or "any memorial service to mark (his) passing."

Nathan Lane starred on Broadway, and in the 2005 movie, as Max Bialystock in The Producers (2005) and on Broadway as Pseudolus in "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum". Zero Mostel played both characters in the earlier film versions.
