  • Arthur,


    He is still alive. He doesn't really work any more but not many do when they reach 90. He made his last appearance on a M*A*S*H reunion in 2002. I'm not sure he has appeared since.


    Cheers B)

    88 years ago the actor and singer Howard Keel was born.


    141 years ago with the American Civil war at its height the actor Tully Marshal was born. He appeared with John Wayne in The Big Trail. He is the earliest actor to date, and for me represents what makes the Duke so fascinating and illustrates the narrowness of the timeband John Wayne transcended time he appeared with an actor who was born during the war between the states as well as actors born during the Second World War and beyond.

    Hi Arthur -
    Fowley was one of my favorite character actors. One of his best roles IMO was his part as the harried movie director in "Singing In The Rain." There were many other movies that showed his wide-ranging acting abilities to good effect.
