Dick Shawn (1923-1987)


  1. Bobby Darin, State Fair, 1961.  Among the early castings announced in October 1960 was the comic for Jerry Dundee.   Darin had more clout, Top Ten-wise. For a wee while. Although far from the funniest of comics, Shawn played 63 screen roles, most  notably Lorenzo St DuBois, aka LSD in The Producers, 1967. 
  2. Joseph Bologna, Transylvania 6-5000, 1985.  It was Shawn v Bologhna for the mad scientist Dr Malavaqu. Croatia and Slovenia payed Transylvania. Because the Dell chemical combine had frozen funds there.
  3. Ted Bessell, Hail Tn The Chief, TV, 1985.    Shawn and Spalding Gray were among  those auditioning to support the first female US president - Patty Duke (almost, inevitable, of course) -  as she dealt with  a Soviet nuclear war (Shawn became the USSR leader Zolotov), cabinet spies,  personal attacks, an impotent husband and son in a sex scandal. The series died after seven chapters. Bissel was famous as  Marlo Thomas’ boyfriend  Danny, in That Girl!, TV, 1965-1971.
