Howdy Manco!!

Edward Cianelli began his career as a physician in Italy. In 1931, he began acting in films and continued to stay busy throughout his film career, until his death in 1969. He appeared in Gung Din, The Mummy's Hand, For Whom The Bell Tolls, House Boat, McKenna's Gold and many other films. During the 50's, he began appearing in some t.v. westerns, like Wagon Train, The Tall Man and The Virginian. Another of the excellent character actors from the 50's, without their face, it is difficult to recall.

Raymond Massey was one of the best of the best character actors in Hollywood. His family was the Massy family that merged with Ferguson and produced the Massy-Ferguson, the most popular farm tractor in the world. Born a Canadian, Raymond fought and was wounded in both World Wars. He eventually became a naturalized American citizen. He began his film career in 1929 and never looked back. He appeared in such films as Arsenic And Old Lace, East Of Eden, Carson City, How The West Was Won, McKenna's Gold and many of the 50's and 60's t.v. series. He portrayed Abaham Lincoln 4 times during his career and was nominated for an Academy Award for How The West Was Won. He will probably best remembered as Richard Chamberlain's mentor on the 60's t.v. series, .Dr Kildare.

Although Joan Blondell began her career in 1930, I think it is for the latter part of her career, that she will be best remembered. She appeared with Dick Powell in at least 10 films and finally married him in real life. Some of her earlier films include, Topper Returns, Cry Havoc, and Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter, but in her later years, she appeared in Stay Away Joe with Elvis Presley and Support Your Local Gunfighter with James Garner. She also has a regular role as Aunt Win on the 50's t.v. series, The Real McCoys and as Lottie Hatfield on the 60's series, Here Come The Brides. She began her career as a blonde sex symbol, but was much better in comedy roles.

Fred MacMurray began his career in 1929 and stayed busy with films like, Double Indemnity and The Apartment during the 30's and 40's. During the 50's, he began making several westerns, like Gun For A Coward, Quantez. A Good Day For A Hanging and several more. He also starred in The Absent Minded Professor, Son Of Flubber and The Shaggy Dog but it is for the 50's t.v. series, My Three Sons, that he will be best remembered for.

David Clarke began his career in 1941 and had small roles in The Wake Of The Red Witch, Gunfighter, Red Badge Of Courage and Sands Of Iwo Jima, but will probably be best remembered for The Narrow Margin, The Setup and The Great St Louis Bank Robbery.

Julie Bishop first appeared in silent films in 1923. She appeared With Mary Pickford and Clara Bow. From 1923-1941, she appeared under the name Jacqueline Wells. in films like Tarzan The Fearless and The Ranger And The Lady. During the 40's and the 50's she appeared opposite some of Hollywood;s leading men, such as Action In The North Atlantic with Humphrey Bogart, Westward The Women with Robert Taylor and The Big Land with Alan Ladd. She Retired from acting in 1957.
