Nothing more fun than watching an old movie and thinking that someone's nose or other feature looks a bit different than what one has been used to.
Now imagine my disappointment, after watching "Grease" and finding out that Edd Byrnes, the youthful star of 77 Sunset Strip and other teen classics, had not only had a name change but a nose change! And there were even photos on the Net from the Confidential days.
Another guy who looked a heck of a lot more attractive, after surgery was Alex Cord. I wonder if that was what made Joanne Pettet marry him.
We all know that Danny Thomas, Jimmy Durante and Tiny Tim never had nose jobs though Mrs, Calabash might have preferred one, but I think that even someone as lovely as Rhonda Fleming had one, as she looked a bit different in that film where she played a nymphomaniac.
Marilyn surely had one, as they removed a bump or something and it looked really different in that recent TCM showing of the chorus girl movie.
I used to think Peter O'Toole had one or maybe Morgan Fairchild but I have come to believe some people actually do just have chiseled noses like that.
Hollywood is full of horrid facelifts like those of Mary Pickford or Lucy, but occasionally even the men get them and ruin their looks like Jack Lemmon. Why, Jack why???
Probably the most infamous nose job in Hollywood history is that of noted Mercury Theatre alumnus, Everett Sloane. You see his real nose in Citizen Kane, but later he had most of that rather cute proboscis trimmed down and never looked the same again. On top of that, he always looked angry and it was said among the cognescenti that he could never look in the mirror again and I think he later committed suicide.
Yes, a bad nose job is a grievous thing, but which are your favorites?
