The year is 1938 (more or less). William “Bill” Frawley was a popular character actor from the 1930s-1960s. Usually playing gruff but whimsical Damon Runyonesque roles, such as his classic “Gloomy Willie” character in the Bob Hope Christmas flick, “The Lemon Drop Kid”. Frawley always looked old and curmugeonly – making him the perfect Fred Mertz. But, no matter what role he was in, Bill Frawley came across as if his BVDs were too tight. Here he looks unusually dapper, even moreso in color. And he has hair! Imagine that.
