Happy Birthday, Ann Gillis

My heart goes out to anyone who had to play opposite Tommy Kelly.

 

I can't watch his films since I am a diabetic*.

 

Happy Birthday, Ann!

 

*Just kidding, stole that from Oscar Levant.

 

Oh, I thought that Tommy Kelly caught the mischevious spirit of the title character in Adventures of Tom Sawyer to perfection.

 

Even Oscar Levant might have liked him in that film.

 

I thought that Kelly and Ann Gillis were a charming pair of performers when they played together in that film. Watching his courtship of her, with that frog jumping in his hat, hokey as it may seem to some, also has a nostalgic charm of youthful innocence that I think will appeal to many.

 

Of course, having the likes of Victor Jory's Injun Joe and the wonderful May Robson as the perfect Aunt Polly added to the casting joys of that Selznick production.
