Lindsay Crosby

  1. Stuart Whitman, Hound-Dog Man, 1959.    First director, Ida Lupino, wanted Robert Mitchum as the skirt-chasing Blackie Scantling. Next director, Wild Bill Wellman, went second generation – Bing Crosby’s son and Alan Ladd’s David (even Mickey Rooney’s nine-year-old Teddy as Spud). Finally, Don Siegel chose Whitman as Blackie opposite… the Elvis wannabe, Fabian. First, Lindsay Crosby, then his older brother Dennis (1934-1991), both commited suicide.
