Name that supporting player

  • For this topic, simply guess which Stooges supporting player played the characters listed. Three character names will be given. Whoever guesses the right actor or actress will ask the next question.

    Here are the first three characters:

    Cecil Z. Swinehardt

    Count Alfred Gehrol

    Mr. Gigi

    Hey Rob,

    Have you ever considered adding Three Stooges Filmography and Cast Member databases and functions to this site?  Crew too.

    Each film's entry could display its cast & crew information, and all that could be cross-linked into the databases for each cast or crew member. Sure it'd be a lot of work... probably take years... but we could make the information much more complete and reliable than other websites, so there wouldn't be a need for readers to go to imdb, wikipedia, etc.

    What'a'ya think?

    I dunno - sounds like a awful lot of work to me, and would anyone actually use it?    ;D

    (Feeling just a bit under appreciated?)   ;)

    That's John Tyrell.

    How about the judge in "Disorder in the Court"? I don't recall him having a name in that short. (Hint: He was also the judge in "Reefer Madness").

    The judge was Edward LeSaint, who on this site is listed as Captain Burke in "Half-Shot Shooters," which is impossible because they looked totally different, even in age.

    How about this one:
    Mr. Amscray
    Pedro Ruiz
    Jerry the insurance salesman
    Blackie (of Blackie & Doyle)

    He was in "Half-Shot Shooters," but he didn't play Burke.  He was the guy behind the desk, who asked the Stooges questions, but they couldn't hear him.

    OK, thanks for clearing that up.  That old guy I remember.

    That would be Lynton Brent. He's a pretty funny guy, I like all of his characters.

    I don't have a new one in mind. If someone else wants to go next, please do.

    I'd say that's Ted Lorch, one of my favorites. (Let's not forget Jerkington - "I hope you have a nice loooooong sleep")

    Okay, we'll try this one. I listed 4 characters, but 1 of them only has a first name and 2 of them don't have names at all so I used the role description as credited:
    German Captain
    Herman
    Fuller Grime
    Hotel Detective

    No takers? How about if I add another character?

    And subtract one... 'Fuller Grime' was played by Gene Roth.

    You're right. I apologize for my goof. Gene Roth appears as Fuller Grime in the same short, but the supporting player I had in mind is just credited as "Crook".

    I need to find a few more shorts where our supporting player actually had a name. He is in so many, but I didn't realize how many times he appears without a name until I started looking up some of his roles.

    How about a hint: In the short where he is credited as "Herman", his name is not spoken, but it appears in the logo on the driver's side door of his car (near the beginning of the short).

    That is an easy one - the lovely and lucious Dee Green!   [love4]   [faint2]


    My turn, and this one is a little more obscure.  This actor has been...
    • a workman with a leaky lunch pail
    • a football player (#20)
    • a prison guard
    • and a Vulgarian soldier

    Here's another:
    She played
    A hospital patient
    A train passenger
    A Colonel's daughter
    A gangster's moll
    A professor's daughter
    An artist's model.

    Who is she?
