“Channeling” Great Character Actors

May 2, 2017

On a flipping the channels day, “Romance on the High Seas” and an episode of “Friends,” “brought” two favorites and a note or two.

In the 1949 movie, “Romance on the High Seas” directed by the great Michael Curtiz (many great films but one need only say “Casablanca”) there was Don DeFore, for whom so many years ago, I subliminally named an “Electric Football” running back.

In the movie, DeFore was a “Mr. Kent” evoking my favorite from and including Superman, Clark Kent.

On “Friends,” there was the great character actor named Phil Leeds. He delivered a great line.

Mine is where have they all gone, character actors and many other good things?!
