  • Born in Washington, PA, Bud Yorkin attended Carnegie Tech after service in the U.S. Navy beginning at age 16, and became a television engineer at NBC in 1949. He was already an established producer/director on television, specializing in variety shows featuring Martin and Lewis, Abbott and Costello, and George Gobel. He formed a partnership with producer Norman Lear in 1959, which yielded several Yorkin-directed films including Come Blow Your Horn (1965), Divorce American Style (1967), Inspector Clouseau (1968 -- starring Alan Arkin), and Start the Revolution Without Me (1970). In the early '70s, Yorkin and Lear created All in the Family, a groundbreaking topical situation comedy that completely redefined television comedy with its relatively realistic scripts and subject matter, for which Yorkin was executive producer. Since then his film career has resumed without exceptional success, including an appearance as an actor in 1990's For the Boys. He mostly retired from the industry in the mid-1990s, other than appearing in some TV documentaries. Yorking passed away in 2015, at age 89.
