Well, my friends, you won't find a more staunch supporter of Danny Kaye's talent than me. Danny Kaye was the lord almighty in Brooklyn when I was a girl - he was adored, and could do no wrong as far as the populace was concerned. However . . . . .you might be a bit disappointed in him if you read any biographi
  2. Maybe you're thinking of "Cotton Comes to Harlem?" That's more of a comedy than is "Tobacco Road," although "Tobacco Road" has its funny moments.
  3. Living on Love sounds suspiciously like Rafter Romance, except in this instance the shared apartment is in the basement. I hope I get a chance to see at least a bit of it to make a comparison.
  4. I've seen "Three Coins in the Fountain" several times recently on cable. It was probably on the Fox channel, since it's a Fox movie. They run it fairly often.
  5. One more birthday for April 11. Designer Oleg Cassini
  6. Another 4/11 birthday - director/producer Howard W. Koch
  7. April 11, and here are some of today's supporter/character birthdays: Paul Douglas

Yes, it's that Tully Marshall. I wonder if it is a coincidence. I've noticed, since I started looking up birthdays for this thread, that there are certain "types" born on the same day - e.g., musicians, comedians, (or scient
  9. One more April 10 birthday: A consummate character actor of great skill and range, who's been around forever. Long may he thrive. Harry Morgan
  10. Also born on April 10 My favorite Swede, Max von Sydow (he's the live one, on the left)
  11. More on 4/10 George Arliss
  12. Hello, everyone. Back from a brief vacation (didn't go anywhere, just didn't do any of the routine things). It's April 10, and here are some birthdays: Tully Marshall
  13. One more 3/27 birthday: David Janssen
  14. Some more March 27 birthdays: Richard Denning (here as co-star of radio's "My Favorite Husband" with Lucille Ball)
  15. More on 3/27 Oscar-winning screenwriter Sidney Buchman (on the left)
  16. March 27. Some birthdays today: Harold Nicholas (left)
  17. Carol, I assume you're referring to Joby Baker, not Nimoy. I don't know too much about Baker. I know he's Canadian. He was one of those nice-looking "best friend" types, and was in a heap of beach party and Elvis movies in the 50s and 60s. His time is now spent primarily as an artist and sculptor. If you search his name online, you'll find a lot of galleries that show his work.
  18. Make that one more birthday again on March 26. Yes, there was a Leonard Nimoy before "Star Trek." Here he is in his starring role as "Kid Monk Baroni" in 1952
  19. Hey, Dan, what's up. You know, Dukakis was my very first thought for your question, but in what movie did she "steal the show?" Are you talking about "Moonstruck?" Feh. Wouldn't even have occurred to me. I guess even trivia games are subjective. I never thought of Dukakis as a show-stealer -- a show "off" maybe. But then, that's my opinion; I'm not up Dukakis-lore. Let's press on, shall we? Who's up.
  20. One more birthday on 3/26. You know his face - what's his name? It's Joby Baker
  21. Another 3/26 celebrant: Ed Peck (he of the deep voice and pompous demeanor)
  22. More on 3/26: The versatile Strother Martin
  23. Also on 3/26: G'day, Mate. The movie image of the typical Australian male in the 1940s and 50s: Chips Rafferty
  24. Glad everyone's enjoying the Gallery. It's really fun to do. I think Walsh is one of those "actors' actors" who is admired by his peers. He is amazingly versatile, isn't he? I've been musing about Ross Martin today. I was very fond of him. He played mostly for comedy, but could do villains as well (remember "Experiment in Terror?") He had done standup comedy with a partner, Bernie West, as Ross & West (he was "Marty Ross" then). I think West went on to be come a sitcom writer/producer. Martin was very skilled with dialects, and actually spoke several languages. He was also
