Guest Hunk #3



Wanna guess who his handsome guy is?  Clues:  In 1927 he was convicted of manslaughter for beating to death the husband of his lover, and spent 25 months in San Quentin.  He was a child actor and maintained a successful career in the theater and movies until his death in 1956.  Understandably, he played a lot of tough guys, cops in particular.  I somehow doubt his directors gave him much grief.

ooh *raises hand* I know. Such a great actor and I admit a bit of a crush on him too. Paul Kelly, one of the most interesting life stories in Hollywood.

Too easy!!! It's Paul Kelly, he played Jim Kinland in one of my favorite Bill Powell movies, "Star of Midnight". Curiously, he played a gangster in that one. (Type casting)

Kristina was first, the "Winner!" Yeah, have always liked Mr. Kelly ... always had him pegged as a nice guy, manslaughter aside.

Debbie, I'll make you a co-winner if you can relate the circumstance when our Bob infamously uttered, "Too Easy."

He said it to Lauren Bacall after she gave him her phone number. :)

Congrats! Debbie's a winner! (Yeah, I know. That was "Too Easy" as well! Promise to make it more challenging next time!)
