I had the fortune to witness his humor at a star dedication a few months ago...he was a real class act. They don't make 'em like that anymore.

Twisted Sister said...

Janele, I thought the same thing.

jax said...

aww RIP Monsieur Hollywood.

Janele said...

It's gotta be, Twisted. Remember, we all thought it was Mickey Rooney and there's Mickey right next to him. hmm...

I just read the AP story about Johnny Grant, and apparently he was a lifelong bachelor. I seem to recall Ent saying that JJ's wife was roommates with Timmy, and that's how he knew the secret, or something to that effect, so I don't think this was him.

ooo...buzzkill. :-(

Twisted Sister said...

Thanks, Liz. At least we didn't go off on a wild goose chase for long.

Wow. I'm lame.

See that dark haired woman over on the far right hand side of the picture?

I think that's the woman who plays/played Katherine Chancellor's maid on Young and the Restless.

I used to watch that show when I was in high school (over 10 years ago).

What's her name?

Ah. Love Google.

Her name is Kate Linder. Even after years playing that recurring maid character on Y&R, she still worked as a flight attendant.

Twisted Sister said...

Kara, I used to watch Y & R, too. Here's a pic of Kate Linder that looks very much like the woman in the pic:

johnny grant was the honorary mayor of hollywood, it seems like forever. to tell you the truth, i don't even know how he BECAME famous, it just seems like he's always been there. did a lot of traveling doing shows for the troops like bob hope did, and was at every hollywood event since i can remember. just a nice all-around guy.
