Pool (i.e. billards) in film

It occurred to me that Jayne Mansfield might have had a tough time playing pool.

 

Just another reason why you always bring talcum power to a pool hall, DGF!

Isn't the killer in And Then There Were None (1945) playing pool when he's revealed at the end of the movie?

Here ya go...

I am thinking of a possible pool hall promotion to attract more patrons.

Poor Jayney.

 

Only known for two things, Dargo.

 

Her pink palace and that heart shaped swimming pool!

Reminds me of Bob Hope's introduction, "and now, the two and only, Jane Russell!"

Ya know, it's funny, Down that women with amazing physical characteristics get ribbed about them all the time by guys like Hope, but you never see a woman emcee introduce a male who is over-endowed, with such ribbing comments.

 

I guess I should just let Forrest Tucker rest in peace though. Sorry!

Well, maybe not anything about a man's "endowments" CG, but I'll bet there had to be at least a few instances where Martha Raye probably introduced Hope to an audience as "Old Ski Nose, himself" anyway!

 

(...on radio, TV, or during their mutual appearances on those USO tours)

Well, there's a lot of difference between a nose and something else, Dargo.

 

Otherwise all women would have been wanting to date Danny Thomas and Jimmy Durante!

Guess you haven't ever heard that old suggestion that there is INDEED some correlation to those two different body parts of a man, CG.

 

(...and besides that one about the size of a man's hands)

Here's a wonderful clip of The Great Man, and his ability to use a pool table and cue as comic props when he is asked a simple question, "How did you come to be known as Honest John?"

Women who are well-endowed tend to show them off. Men who are well-endowed don't generally have their ****** hanging out.
