I guess it's true that Liberace was light in the loafers, as the expression went.

Is that Durante's partner in the background?

Sonny King? Kinda looks a bit like him.

Here's a photo of Sonny with Martin & Lewis (legend has it Sonny and Dino were roomies, and Sonny introduced Dean to Jerry).

I thought it was Jerry Lee. They've a bit in common.

I'm thinking maybe background guy is Eddie Jackson.

Based on this clip, I'd say we have a winner with Eddie Jackson.

swac said...

Heh...there's even a Liberace reference halfway through that clip.

Pardon, I meant Liberace and Jerry Lee, I get them mixed up, but only in appearance. They were both manic, had the same hairdo, but only one married his fourteen-year-old cousin. Strange behaviour.
