Re: Walter Catlett

I wouldn't call him a Woolsey Impersonator. They were two men with separate careers but similar styles. I'll grant that he may have copied Woolsey when he stepped into his part & was probably expected to. That could also be said for Joe E Brown and Bert Lahr. Much as I love Woolsey I think Catle...

Re: .....speaking of Musty Suffer.......

Well, what ever and whom ever, it was quite an entertaining short- essentially a filmed stage act but a good one that ended with a (literal) drum beating flourish
