I WILL make this thread work. Maybe I'll spice it up by adding favorite performances or lines or something.

Man, I love him as the father in the The Lady Eve when he walks down the stairs singing "For Tonight We'll Merry Merry Be", sits down at the table, looks around, says "Where's my breakfast?" realizes all the staff are preparing for the party and finally starts banging the shiny food-warming covers together.

RIP pedro gonzalez gonzalez

he was sometimes criticized for perpetuating negative stereotypes, but howard hawks gave him a bit of room to stretch out in "rio bravo".

Help me identify this actor who just walked by me on henry st- charles dance but short, gone to seed and with peppery medium length hair. Plays seedy ex public schoolboy types, after a wash perhaps an eccentric english teacher

was there another thread about actor/actresses who are not household names, but you see cropping up in lots of old TV/series?

Anyway, I've been watching an episode of Whack-o from 1960 on youtube and thinking about how much I like Keith Smith's look:

Frank Morgan
Louis Calhern

Watching Annie Get Your Gun. Had never seen Louis Calhern sing before. Just learned that he took over the role when Frank Morgan died shortly after shooting the opening number, which is about their character, "Colonel Buffalo Bill."

one year passes...

I saw a pleasant Beatrice Lillie silent vehicle last night, Exit Smiling (1926), and Franklin Pangborn played the leading man in her theatrical troupe. It was his first feature film (he was about 37), and already in full nelly mode, panicking constantly with hands in flight.
