I think I'm going to change my name to Toots.

Don't know who this is with Deano, but I promise you this isn't Toots Shor. You can check out what Toots looks like at Tootsthemovie.com.

"Toots Flickhead" doesn't really have much of a ring to it, I'm afraid!

Toots Flanders.

Look's like Larry Flynt. Also, what or who's on the floor they're looking down on?

Fred said...

Based on what they're drinking, my guess is that they are looking down at the ceiling.

That's Jesse Unruh,circa 1960-something. He was the Speaker of the California Assembly and was the closest thing California ever had to an old time Eastern-style boss. Kingmaker. Tough pol. Skinnied down in weight and gave up easy re-election in the Legislature in '70 to take a chance for Governor against Reagan, who was up for re-election. Got creamed. Even very shrewd men can let their vanity get in the way of good sense. Exeunt Jesse Unruh. Jim

Unruh was also with Robert Kennedy on the podium at the Ambassador, moments before Bobby was gunned down.

By 1968 Unruh had skinnied down a good bit as is eveident in those pics you see of him with RFK at the Ambassador. I guess he was already thinking of challenging Reagan in '70.
