    It is said that Joe E. Brown had a smile wide enough to hold 5 golf balls.

    With that face, he had no choice but to become a comedian. :)

    Do you remember him in "Some Like It Hot"?

    He was the vacationing millionaire who had a "thing" for Jack Lemmon, who was disguised as a woman.

    At the end of the movie, Lemmon told him that he was actually a Man, to which Brown replied: "Well...nobody's perfect!"

    I remember him and I don't think it's favorable.

    If I were "very young" I wouldn't be on a senior forum. :D

    Many who without supportive notoriety would have wound up in the scrap heap of the forgotten, have been found to have perpetual presence, even though they were jerks:

    Gilbert Gottfried
    Joe E. Brown
    Soupy Sales
    Milton Berle
    Henry Winkler (as "The Fonz")
    Arnold Stang
    John Belushi
    Uncle Johnnie Coons

    Know others?
