Alda, best known for his iconic portrayal of Hawkeye Pierce in the hit TV series MAS*H, has enjoyed a long-lasting and loving marriage with his wife Arlene since 1957. Alda’s memoir, Never Have Your Dog Stuffed (And Other Things I’ve Learned), offers readers an intimate glimpse into their relationship. He lovingly describes their early days together, as they stole moments during Alda’s military service, wandering through Bronx Park and quickly deciding to get married. Although the book spans 224 pages, readers may expect the typical Hollywood ups and downs—arguments, affairs, or even divorce. However, Alda’s story remains refreshingly devoid of such drama, showcasing a love story that continues to flourish despite the passage of time.
