Thanks for the link Dothery. I really enjoyed that. I don't remember - were those three (including Adrian) regulars on Jack Benny's show?

 

 

 

No ... I only remember seeing them together in that one film clip. Iris Adrian did appear on the Jack Benny show a lot. Her voice could make me laugh wherever I was in the house when she came on. Hilarious delivery. And she never gave Jack an inch.

FRANKIE BURKE (1915 - 1983)

Interesting bio from IMDb: Francis Vaselle Aiello was born June 6, 1915, in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn, New York. He worked many odd jobs after graduating High School, including working with his father, Carmine, who owned a tailoring shop. He earned the nickname "The earl of Warwick" because of his persistence trying to obtain a job at the most luxurious hotel in town, The Warwick Hotel (he sat in the lobby for weeks every day). However, he was a "newspaper seller" when he first saw 'James Cagney' on film and became an immediate fan. He imitated Cagney for a long time to his friends and family, much to their approval, before deciding to hitchhike to Hollywood to get an interview with Cagney, but this attempt failed, so he returned home to New York. Later he tried it again, and this time he landed a job on the vaudeville circuit doing impressions of Cagney. A Warner Bros. talent scout saw his act and hired him for the role of the young version of Cagney's "Rocky Sullivan" in "Angels with Dirty Faces" (1938). After that he made 17 films until he disappeared from the celebrity circuit in 1941. His whereabouts from 1941 to about 1961 are unknown, but sometime in the early 1960s, he decided to ride the rails as what he, himself, called a "Hobo" until he became too ill and was taken from a train when it pulled into Junction City, Kansas. He was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer and sent to a long term care facility in Chapman, Kansas where he passed away only weeks later on April 7th, 1983. Sad.

Esther Williams ... there's a girl who earned her money. She said once, "You can only do so many strokes a minute, you have to look beautiful every second and you can't stop smiling." I saw her once with a university swim team. They were trying to swim her "movie star" way and they couldn't do it. They kept sinking. She was showing them how but they still couldn't manage it. Funny.

 

I always thought the worst part of her job was getting the gunk out of her hair at night. They had to load it with vaseline to hold it in place and she was hours cleaning up later.

Billie Whitelaw was in a little British jewel titled "Make Mine Mink" with a great Brit cast from 1967. She was delightful in it. The movie is one of the funniest I have ever seen. As far as I know, it has only been shown once on TCM. I was able to finally get it on disc.
