    I scratched a bit. The first guy to play in a PLETHORA of Joe Doakes (aka Joe Blow, later, your Mr. Average Guy) shorts was Robert Benchley, from 1939 through '44. He died in '45 of liver failure, though he'd been a teetotler early on. He didn't look at all like the guy in the pumpkin pie, SO, maybe the series was carried on with someone else in the role? On we search! (BTW, Robert was Peter Benchley's grandfather, and we all know what famous book HE wrote!)

    You look for one thing and turn up something ELSE! Isn't that the way it works?:rolleyes: We were in some serious doubt a few days ago on WHO the ladies in this '51 promo shot were with Martin & Lewis.

    The lady at left (who, here, looks a tad like Janet Leigh to me) is actually Marion Marshall. Not surprisingly, she was in numerous early Martin/Lewis movies. Not only was she good looking, she was also the girlfriend of Hal Wallis who produced most of those early films!:)

    Someone thought that might be Rosemary Clooney at right, but it's Polly Bergen -- with lighter hair than I remember her. Incidentally, Dean and Jerry formed their partnership in '46, made their first film appearance in '49 ("My Friend Irma') and finally called it quits after 10 years in '56 when they only spoke to eachother on screen.:mad:

  8. ive seen big wheels snap in half from jumping them

    he had a good reason for that look your rear is just mere inches from the pavement and molded plastic isnt the softest thing in the world lol id bet that big wheels rear axle was bent beyond ridable after that jump

    i loved my big wheels had like 5 of them (kept wearing out the front wheels) also had the big green machine it wasnt as much fun

    I kinda hate to admit it, but the descendants of this football team from Bowlegs, Oklahoma (1936), beat the high school in which I work last night, 76-44. I wonder what color these uniforms are, as they are now blue.

    Ellen Drew - with the superb figure stands next to Dick Powell
    - in the publicity Still photo from, the 1947 Noir film, Johnny O'Clock.
    Ellen plays the part of Nelle Marchettis, ...Talented Missouri-born Ellen Drew
    was born Esther Loretta Ray in 1915, the daughter of an Irish barber.
    She worked various jobs (accountant, salesgirl) to support her family
    until her fresh-faced good looks and high-wattage smile earned her
    a couple of beauty pageant trophies. Encouraged to try her luck in Hollywood,
    she was discovered in somewhat typical Lana Turnerfashion. While working
    at an ice cream parlor, customer William Demarest (*Uncle Charley ,My Three Sons Fame)
    took notice of her and was instrumental in having her put under contract at Paramount Studios in 1936.
