A Few Names – From WAY Back…..

…..Most of them even before MY time.

Jack Carson from 40s movies, Jimmy Durante and Stan Laurel all the way from Vaudeville through movies and into early TV, Jonathan Winters, Debbie Reynolds, and Carol Burnette: those are some of the folks who I always thought would brighten up a room just by entering it.

And I got that same feeling the first time I saw Jamaree Salyer with his big smile.

He didn’t have that big smile in the pic in Mike Griffth’s “Gallery” post in DawgNation today, but no matter, I think I’d still like to know him.

    Completely random but you mentioned Laurel. IDK how many know his partner Oliver Hardy was from Columbia Co. Georgia.

    My family is from the same area and according to the Wikipedia entry his father was involved with Company K, 16th Georgia regiment of the CSA. Member of my family and those of many in the area fought for it in Virginia.

    Laurel and Hardy were before my time but I never would’ve guessed one of them was a good ole boy son of a Confederate vet from rural Georgia...especially since Laurel was British.

    My middle son loves Laurel and Hardy. He was the only child that would watch old movies with me.

    Anyone remember a local knock-off version called Tubby and Lester?

    I was in the children’s studio audience once.
