Ray Bolger (1904-1987)

  1. Jack Haley, The Wizard of Oz, 1938.
  2. Dan Dailey, When My Baby Smiles At Me, 1947.    After two versions in eight years (1929 and 1937), Paramount sold the Burlesque, rights to RKO, which wanted Bolger vehicle. Apparently, he couldn’t drive! At Fox, producer George Jessel selected Dailey and Betty Grable after their other vaudeville item, Mother Wore Tights. Dailey won an Oscar nomination. So did Laurence Olivier. For Hamlet. Nolo contendere.
  3. Jackie Coogan, The Partridge Family, TV, 1974.      The occasional roles of Shirley Jones’ parents went to Bolger (The Wizard of Oz scarecrow) and Rosemary DeCamp.  However, for two shows in  the final season,   Grandpa had a new actor - and a new name.  Walter.
