  • Hi


    Today I'm going to take a slightly different approach to this topic and apologise to Keith if I trespass into his realm. But on this day is going to look at the careers of two veterans of the screen men who like many of their colleagues appeared throughout the 1930s and 40s in hundreds of films mostly B pictures, mostly annoymous, but without whom the many westerns and dramas made during the 30s and 40s would not have been possible.


    On this Day 21 March


    115 years ago the actor Jonathan Hale was born. A Canadian by birth Hale had a long film career, appearing in 235 pictures. He was a member of the diplomatic service prior to his film career, and his stately bearing stood him in good stead for the variety of corporate executives, military officers and high-level politicians he often played. His best known and most memorable part was that of Dagwood Bumstead's boss J.C. Dithers in the "Blondie" series, a role he assayed from the first entry (Blondie (1938)) until he left the series in 1946. In 1945 he appeared as Col Wordin in the John Wayne picture Dakota. In1966, despondent over personal problems, he shot himself to death.


    44 years ago the actor Blackie Whitford died aged 72 Little is known abut this actor he did however appear in 255 pictures from making his debut in 1928 including working with with John Wayne in Somewhere in Sonara, West of the Divide, Lady From Louisiana, A Man Betrayed, In Old California, The Fghting Kentuckian and his sixth and ultimately final film to end an illustrious career The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance.
