New Game: Name the "Johnny"

I can't think of a single "Fred" or "Giovanni" off hand, but there are lots of "Johnnys."

 

Here's another: James Dunn as "Johnny Nolan" in *A Tree Grows in Brooklyn*. C'mon, think about it and you'll come up with a "Johnny," too!

 

I'll even give you a clue to one: *Gilda*

It didn't take long to come up with a "Fred." Dana Andrews as "Fred Derry" in *The Best Years of our Lives*. If I can think of a "Fred," "Johnny" shouldn't be too difficult. I'll have to really think to come up with a Giovanni!

See? I knew you "brainiacs" could think of some. The most rewarding are not always the easiest.

 

Next: Lee J. Cobb as "Johnny Friendly," the mob boss in *On the Waterfront*, on just the other night.
