Latest What's My Line find

Post by jbuck919 » Sat Jul 30, 2016 7:06 pm

You don't have to advance, because the first guest is one Rudolf Wanderone, who incredibly is not recognized by any of the panel in spite of his already great fame. He was the famous pool hustler Minnesota Fats, but what is really remarkable is that he took that name from the character played by Jackie Gleason in the movie The Hustler rather than the other way around. Sort of like a grandfather's clock being named from the song by Henry Clay Work. (The performance is from an old Nonesuch recording of songs by Work.)




There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.
-- Johann Sebastian Bach
