Audiences were shocked when they saw his haggard appearance as cop-cum-attorney Frank Williams in February 1992 after the show had been on a five-month hiatus. Larry explained had he had lost 80 pounds (from 220) during that time due to kidney trouble which he attributed to "high blood pressure" and would be on dialysis for the remainder of his life. After his death only four months later, his widow Nina disclosed that Larry's renal failure was actually due to AIDS.
