Debbie Kerrick replied to Lover-o-Classics's topic in MAD ABOUT MUSICALS: THE HISTORY OF THE HOLLYWOOD MUSICALSIt amazes me when ever I see a young Buddy Epsen sing and dance. He was such a handsome man in his youth but such a gawky looking dancer. Even though he was a good dancer. I can’t help but wonder how his career would have gone if he wasn’t allergic to the silver makeup for the tin man costume. He of course became a great tv actor later in life. Was it true he was black listed during the House on American Activities era? Does anyone know?
