“Onlooker:” The Great Rodney Dangerfield

March 27, 2020

I truly believe in watching the credits, so much so that within reason, I will stay in the theater (remember those) and wait until the end, likely “costing” me on some first dates.

Anyway, yesterday, after seeing some of the 1956, Stanley Kubrick directed film, “The Killing,” starring Sterling Hayden on TCM, the fabulous IMDb  (Internet Movie Database) was checked, regarding the cast.

Leading the uncredited performers, was Rodney Dangerfield, who struggled long and hard before achieving, “I get no respect” great and deserved fame, for his lightning fast, superb comedy.

Mr. Dangerfield was listed as an “onlooker.”

Please do the same below, as Rodney Dangerfield is in the cluster of people, first row, second from the right. That does not count the shadows on the wall. Perhaps there is a joke in that somewhere.

  1. Great story Andy. I remember going to “Dangerfields” comedy club in NYC after my HS prom in 1984. I know I’m aging myself but that was one helluva memory. It was a BIG deal back then to even get in to the place, and part of the draw to it was you would never know if he’d show up and you’d get a set out of him. We didn’t that night but the memories I’ll carry w me forever are treasured. Thanks for sharing !
