Charles Grodin has been battling bone marrow cancer for several years. “Beethoven” was one of the films that made him most famous, in which he played a father who didn’t want to stay home with a shaggy São Bernardo, but has taken part in other comedies and more throughout his long career.

For several years he made political comments.

In addition to Robert De Niro, he took part in Martin Brest’s film “Escape at Midnight” in 1988. Another of the famous comedies he entered was “I Accidentally Married” from 1972. Even before he was regularly featured in Hollywood works, he participated in several productions in the theater.
