Who Said This ?


Recommended Posts

The speaker had a fairly healthy big-screen career mid-1940s to mid-1950s, a smattering of TV appearences (including a series) for another sixteen years. For the last part of his life, some twenty-five years or so, he was married to an actress whose name and career were bigger than his.

The actor spent most of his career in support and co-star roles, but he did have the lead and title role in a literary biopic. This movie has its moments, but the script has weaknesses due to the wartime issue date -- It gets off course into some international image issue. // It was during this filming that the star met the actress that he married four years later.

The facts here are straight, but I'll admit to being kind of iffy about the quote. I read it in some mag or other when I was about 15, when all I knew about Mr. O'Shea was from summer reruns of his sitcom It's A Great Life . At least once on that series they made an inside joke, including a mention of Virginia Mayo in a list of glam actresses. Got a canned audience laugh.


As for the quote itself, it could be one of those situations where you pay your publicist maybe $25 to get your name in the paper, and the person who actually gets it into print gets $10 of that. So I vouch that I saw it in print, but I don't attach my credibility to the source.


Anyway, Lavender's thread.

Trying a new one:


A popular panel show; guest panelists being quizzed on various matters. Referring to a dramatization of Uncle Tom's Cabin , the question is put: What happened to Topsy at the end of the drama?


Silence. A pause, then one panelist says:


"She went to the dressing room and removed her makeup. Then she went back to the hotel."


What destinguished panelist gave that answer?
