Like a Fat Eli Wallach....

This is a cheat on so many levels: it's late, it's already been posted at Brush Pen Breakfast, etc.

But it's Buddy Hackett!!

I couldn't let this one go without sharing it, if only for Ellis's sake. From an episode of The Rifleman.

I also wrote some fascinating thoughts on Jeff Jones (who I always want to call Jeff Jonas!) in the comments section on his R.I.P. post below...Help straighten me out!


  1. Great likeness! Nice expression, too.

  2. Very nice.
    When I think of Buddy Hackett, I think of him nude,on a golf course, madly running past Joey Bishop, screaming "LOCUSTS!"
    In thumbnail format, I was having an easy time reading the eyes as Ray Milland X Ray vision looking. But big is the way to look at it.
    I also added to the Jones RIP post.

  3. I think of him singing "Shibopee" in The Music Man.

  4. Rifleman has some of the best unintended humor going.
    Just the crack up idea of the opening sequence.
    Blazing away with the quick fire rifle. Potentially about 5 or 6 deaths resulting. And then Connors looking at the camera with that "Oh yeah" look.
    It would be interesting to have a tally of the Lucas McCain duel causalities.

  5. There is an alleged quote of Connors that they once figured out he had killed 2.5 people per show.
