Number 23 is Jerry Lester. Whew.

The name didn't ring a bell, so I looked him up. It's interesting that his career spanned 40 years, yet he only has 18 acting credits. I haven't seen any of his performances. I'm assuming that he was never a household name and has fallen into obscurity, so your identification of him is extremely impressive!

Re ID-ing Jerry Lester. I was going through credits of Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis films as I had a strong hunch that Mr. Lester had been in at least one of their films, or on Martin's TV show. In going through the credits of the Lewis film, "Ladies Man", I saw that Buddy Lester appeared - and I had a vague notion that he might be the guy. So I did a Google image search for Buddy Lester, who of course wasn't the guy, but among the pictures was one of his brother, Jerry. Bingo!!!! Sheer luck! I have no idea why I had an intuition that his name was Jerry.

I'd seen Jerry Lester over the years on TV, but had no real recall about him or his career. Our brains are amazingly weird at times!

Wow, that is far out! I'm still impressed that you had ever even noticed his name in TV show credits. I'm familiar with a couple of the later shows he did (one of which is The Girl from UNCLE), but I have no idea if I ever saw the episode that he appeared in. Even if I have seen that episode, I certainly never noticed his name. I've also heard of one of his old movies (Sleepy Time Gal) but have never seen it. Actually, I remember it being the title of an old Betty & Veronica story from the 50's or 60's that I read as a kid in the 70's. As I mentioned in an earlier post, he is the only one who doesn't have a credit at imdb for Mitzi & 100 Guys.

I'm curious about something, though. Did you know the other 30 men in the clip? In other words, did I get any that you didn't?
