Haha, well, I did that on purpose, because, not always a character- is a supporting actor... though most of the times it's that way, isn't it? :wink: Usually the supporting actors are the better ones, which just proves that looks and the special "something" are more important than talent in the film-business... :roll:

As I mentioned in another thread, I'm rewatching My Man Godfrey, and loving every line out of Eugene Pallette's mouth. He's such a distinctive actor; that voice! I love catching his appearances. Definitely fits this category, in the upper echelon.

Rather like a belligerent bullfrog, isn't it? I first saw him in Robin Hood and Mark of Zorro, but he's so much fun in whatever he's in.

And I have to smile every time I watch that scene in Mark of Zorro where Linda Darnell tells Tyrone Power that Eugene Pallette has been arrested: "they say he is Zorro and they're going to hang him." Ummm, Zorro may wear a mask, but there is NO WAY that anyone, much less someone as sharp as Basil Rathbone, would think that Eugene and Tyrone could be the same person.
