Now you're picking on Fred Allen? Did he ever do anything to you? If you don't like his "mumbly panning," the puppets or his embarrassed face, you always can watch something else on your TV screen. Have you tried Seinfeld? Talking about THAT show will get you out of your house.
|He never looked particularly handsome or virile. In the earliest films of him, Vitaphone "acts" from the late 1920's, he looks pale and scrawny. His homeliness was part of his act; he could be comically insulted in a way that most other performers couldn't.|
Heh, every picture I've seen of him in the 1930's always made him look pale and scrawny.
