Speaking of my acting career, this page is from my ’61 Yearbook. By the way, I went to Manatee High School in Bradenton, Florida.
In the top left photo there’s my friend Larry Jerome, and that’s U-No-Hoo on the right. Larry played some old major. The play was The Monkey’s Paw. If you’re not familiar with it, it’s a horror story by the English writer, W. W. Jacobs. There were three plays, one by each high school class. And guess who got the Best Actor Award! I remember standing there waiting. I thought I was going to get some money or something. All I got was a hearty handshake. Remember the W.C. Fields movie, The Bank Dick?
