Has anyone mentioned John Garfield and two of the "next John Garfields," Dane Clark and Cameron Mitchell? Mitchell especially looks like Garfield.

I see Dane Clark more than Cameron Mitchell as John Garfield lookalikes, but there was only one JG.

Hey, the mention of James Olson in Mongo's Candids thread reminded me that there was a time when I used to confuse these two all the time:

Even looks a little like the other two actors. But that's not who I'm thinking of.


I was hanging out with Wendy last week, and on tv was one of her favorites: "Dead Ringer." When I saw the detective on the case, I said "That's the guy that RedRiver was talking about!!!" She looked him up on IMDB and VOILA!!! KEN LYNCH:

You can thank me later Red with candy and diamonds and a couple of DVDs. You're welcome! :lol:

Bingo! That is POSITIVELY the guy. Cast him as George Raft's brother.

A fantasy I've had many times...

Ken Lynch may have even been in a couple of DICK VAN DYKE episodes. A prison warden, maybe?

Robert Ryan and Rory Mallinson could have played brothers--albeit, if Rory were Mr. Ryan's rather underfed sibling.

Who the heck is Rory Mallinson? He was a lean character actor who played Bogie's trumpeter pal in Dark Passage (1947), and was one of the vets in the hospital in Pride of the Marines (1945).

Moira

In the UK, one of our top presenters Clare Balding became a National Treasure at the London Olympics. Last year I thought I spotted a resemblance between her and a young Angela Lansbury. However, Clare in a tv interview said she resembled Kenneth Branagh and by jove she was right, the resemblance was uncanny. This got me imagining Angela with the short blonde crop she had in the 60s dressing up as Henry VI, A role Branagh is well remembered for. I think it works.

Is it Richard Eastham?

I used to mistake him for Robert Shayne in That Darn Cat.
