1955 Child Actors Alex. #1 was Miss Temple, #2 was Mama’s Boy.
I hate Jeopardy. Except when Ken Jennings was on. He was a smart guy but not a know-it-all, even though it seems he does know it all.
I feel so dumb watching Jeopardy. I hate Alex Trebec because he thinks he so smart.
Well, dur, you have the answers on the card right in front of your ‘stache.
Oh, it’s Alec Trebek? Whatever. He doesn’t have a ‘stache anymore? Oh. BFD.
But when Merv demanded that contestants put the answers in the form of a question, pure genius.
I like Merv. He’s dead, but I still can like him, right?
I like Jane Fonda too. She’s not dead, as a matter-of-fact, she’s working her butt off.
Jane Fonda has a blog. She’s doing a Broadway play after being gone away from the stage for 45 years. Criminey. So far, she’s doing a great job of posting to the blog regularly and keeping it real.
Back to the question by Alec. The second most famous child actor was Blake Morgan.
Then I went to dinner with Robin Morgan and her musician son, Blake Morgan. They are both highly intelligent and talented. As a child in the fifties, Robin was the actor who played Dagmar in the hugely popular TV series, “I Remember Mama.” Robin was second only to Shirley Temple as a nationally popular child star.
We didn’t have TeeVee in 1955. But I kinda, sorta, remember “I Remember Mama.” I think a guy in a moustache had a four Mamas on a panel and they each told a huge sob story and who ever got the most sympathy from the Applause-o-meter won a washer and dryer. I don’t recall any kid being on the show.
Want to feel really dumb? Try a couple of Ken Jenning’s Wordplay Wednesday posts.
Jane Fonda should play Julia Robert’s mother in a movie, and Sandra Bullock should be Julia’s sister in the movie. Meryl Streep should be Jane’s sister.
Fun to look back, poke fun at and have a good laugh…This getting older is reality but getting old does not have to be. So kick up heels, dance in the streets and have a joyful life.
Jane Fonda is an American traitor. My father fought in Vietnam and he will never forgive her. No hard feelings to you personally, but I am unsubscribing from your blog on principle.
@Joe: don’t let the door hit you in the ass. Jane Fonda apologized a long time ago for something she did a long tie ago.
Good Lord man.
