happy hundred Eric

diehard Broadway fans will remember Eric Brotherson for creating the role of Henry Spofford in the musical "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes."

I first saw him on stage as Horace to the Dolly of Dorothy Lamour when that bus & truck company came to Akron. & afterward my partner & I hung out with him & the boys of the chorus at the local gay bar.

Brotherson's film credits were few & minor. but I do think of him from time to time & was surprisd to learn that today wd be his 100th birthday.
