"Oh, that guy..."


Fred Clark (Ride the Pink Horse, Zotz!, etc.)

The Great Character Actors website still appears to be a work in progress, but it's a lot of fun to peruse and look up some of those faces that you can't always put a name to. The design and organization aren't that polished, but it's great to see people like Howard McNear or Jesse Royce Landis get a write-up, especially since the IMDb is a little lax on the headshot front for actors from days gone by.

The site admits that its listing are incomplete, but doesn't include links to each actor's IMDb listing, which should be something to consider in the near future (because even if you don't use Amazon.com, you can at least figure out which films featuring these performers are available on VHS and/or DVD via the IMDb link to Amazon.)

They may not remember his name, but Fred Clark gets a "Special Guest Star" credit in the AIP guilty pleasure Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine (1965). What was VIncent Price, chopped liver?

Really? I've had the DVD for ages, but haven't watched it again yet.

I saw it decades ago on the Great Money Movie out of Bangor, ME, and thought it was hilarious. Of course, that was back in my junior high pot smoking days.

That website is amazing, with a nice write-up on every player. More Whit Bissell, I say!!
