Early work

This isn't necessarily a game, but it could turn into one.

 

It's intention is to share and recieve information.

 

The foundation to it is to provide the name of an actor or actress, who became very famous, or at least well recognized, in a work for which they went uncredited. The name of said actor, and the name of the film in which they were uncredited. Or even an early television program...for instance:

 

Strother Martin/ Uncredited appearance in a line-up in *Asphalt Jungle*.

 

 

Richard Farnsworth/ Even though his career in films as a stunt man dates years ealier, he is given a speaking role as an uncredited comanchero in *The Outlaw Josie Wales*.

 

 

Clint Eastwood/ Uncredited as a smart-aleck lab assistant to John Agar in one of the *Creature From The Black Lagoon* sequels

 

 

Dustin Hoffman/ An uncredited showing as a stick-up man in an episode of *The Naked City*.

 

 

Got the drift? Good. Now, get to work!

Between 1935-1938, Leonard Slye (the pre-Roy Rogers) worked in some twelve films with titles such as *Slightly Static, Way Up Thar, The Big Show*, etc. Sometimes uncredited, or as Leonard Slye, or Len Slye, or a couple of other names, or as "Guitarist for The Sons of the Pioneers". The first film that lists him as Roy Rogers, also has that as the character name. He seems to have joined the list of kiddiewestern stars who used his professional name as the character name.(Rex Allen, Gene Autry, etc.)

 

Another "early work" name: Doug McClure was uncredited in 1956's *Friendly Persuasion*. The first time I saw him in an acting role I recognized him from a Vitalis commercial. He worked steadily in films and TV ("Trampas" in *The Virginian*) from teen roles to sitcom grandfather.

Between 1949 and 1954, Charles Dennis Buchinsky made 25 film appearances -- TV and Theater -- either uncredited or under his birth name. Probably the most familiar of the films are *House Of Wax* and *Miss Sadie Thompson*, both in 1953.

 

Starting in 1954 and until 1999, he made the rest of his 162 appearances under his assumed name, Charles Bronson. Just about any film buff could probably name 5 - 10 titles without having to look anything up.
