Miles, I am impressed by your knowledge of the difference between Canadian and American spelling, something most people are not aware of! Yes, 'colour' (color) is one of those words I always try to catch myself when I post. ;)

Yes, lavender got Charles Farrell, one of the leading stars of the late silent and early sound period. He was teamed with Janet Gaynor about a dozen times. In his sound films, his Boston accent is easily recognizable. He was also one of the better tennis playing actors. He had his own raquet club in Palm Springs. Here is a younger photo of him.

Now, do you know this kid? He was in a whole lot of movies in the late 1940's and early 1950's.

He always looked like he belonged in a Norman Rockwell painting.

That's right. Jimmy Hunt was also in the remake many years later playing the police chief.

Now, here's another kid from that era. Do you know him?

Yup, you're right, lavender. It looks like Richard Eyer had a black eyer in one picture. He was all over TV and movies in the fifties and early sixties.

Now, we won't do a whole lot more child performers at this time, but I just have to sneak in one more because this kid is so darn cute. She started in the mid-fifties and worked through the sixties. She was in a few big movies and some memorable TV shows. You will probably recognize her. Do you know her name? These photos span about ten years.

Yes, it's Terry Burnham, a talented child actress. It's too bad that she didn't really have an adult career.

Now, here's a guy who has one of those recognizable faces, but I doubt that any one of you knows his name. He played cops most of the time, but he also played thugs at other times. Do you know his name?

Yes, it's Robert Foulk, another one of those faces that you know you've seen a hundred times, but never knew his name. Now here is a guy who had a very long career in both movies and TV. He sometimes played cops, but It's as a western movie villain that he is best known. He was usually the ringleader of the outlaw gang, or the crooked lawyer out to swindle the homesteaders out of their propery. He was usually the last bad guy shot or beaten by the hero at the end of the picture. Do you know him?

Yes, I. (for Isaac) Stanford Jolley was in countless movies, most of which were westerns. He was sometimes billed as Stan Jolley. He was also in a few "A" movies. He was the Vermont station manager in "White Christmas". When Bing Crosby asks him if he can handle a lot of extra trains on Chrismas Eve, he responds with "I'll call the traffic manager". I believe that was his only line. His son, Stan Jolley, is a noted art director in the movie industry.

Now, there are big budget musicals and there are low budget musicals. This next gal sang in lots of the low budget variety. Do you know her name?

Yes, that's Ruth Terry, who was probably Republic Studio's top female singer in the forties, along with Dale Evans, of course. Now, do you know this next pretty actress? Her career only spanned the thirties and early forties, but she worked a lot, playing second leads and the "other woman" in mostly "B" pictures, but some bigger budget movies as well. She worked with Cagney, Astaire, Jolson, and even Abbott and Costello. Do you know her name?

Yes, Twinks, it's the lovely Claire Dodd, a one time Goldwyn Girl who you may have seen about ten days ago on TCM in "Footlight Parade".

Now here's one that should be a very familiar face from the classic film era. He almost always played authority figures, from business executives, to military officers, to lawyers and judges. Twinkeee, you might be interested to know that he was from Hamilton, Ontario. Can anyone name him?

 

images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQTQsjHEyGM7iqDL-qTnNUimages?q=tbn:ANd9GcS-U5EpDYM-F4BC_fYV5No

 

He also had a role in a popular movie comedy series.

Thanks Miles ! :)

 

 

You're latest post is from Hamilton, Ontario..that's 30 miles, from where I live ! !

 

Unfortunely, I did not catch the post until after it had been answered, but thank you anyway! :)

Yes, lavender got him. He was in so many movies from the thirties to the fifties, but he is still probably best known as Mr. Dithers in the "Blondie" series.

Now, I don;t remember if we've had this fellow before or not. He was in many movies in the thirties and forties, often playing a sarcastic businessman. Do you know him? Twinkeee, you might beat lavender to the punch this time. There are film noirs on TCM tonight, so she'll be glued to her TV. By the way, this guy is from Guelph, Ontario. How far is that, Twinks?

Yes, You got him, Twinks. I purposely left out his trademark cigar, but it didn't matter.

Now, here is a guy who played cops, ranchers, and businessmen. No matter if they were good or bad, they were always tough. Do you know his name?
