Arthur Treacher

  1. Alan Mowbray, Panama Hattie, 1941.      Booming Ethel Merman, who created the title role on Broadway, was passed over for the Cole Porter MGMusical. As was Treacher as Dan Dailey’s butler. In fact from a show that also featured Betty Hutton and (among the dancers) June Allyson, Betsy Blair and Doris Dowling, only Rags Ragland repeated his stage role. Maybe because that was also called Rags.
