Arbus played the recurring role of Dr. Sidney Freeman, the wise psychiatrist who appeared throughout the series.

MASH star Alan Alda later said he assumed the actor had real experience in the field, because he was so believable. Arbus began acting in his late 40's after building a successful photography career.

Arbus died from congestive heart failure, according to his daughter, Arin Arbus.
