Short, but a pretty cool find!

The "Charlotte and Red" sketch from Ms. Gaynor's special was silly, but RM elevated the material byhis comic timing and vaudevillian turn.

He was a truly versatile performer: comedy, drama, song, dance, musicianship. He could do it all and do it well. It's a shame that more producers couldn't recognize that.

Here's an even better example of Ross's singing. (And I'll never figure out why he chose to make Artie so consistently off key!)

Wow, nydiva, that's quite a pinstripe suit!

Thanks to the Admin for the song.

Cheers!

I don't have to guess. I've had that CD for years. I even knew one of his fellow cast members!! (A darling old flirt of a character actor named George S Irving)

He had this to say:

So you want to know about Ross Martin? Makes me feel like a scene from "Citizen Kane". He and I worked together in a musical called "Archie and Mehitabel" [note: later changed to Shinbone Alley}. He was an extraordinary actor with a marvelous technique. He could imitate the great British "Sirs"' Olivier, Richardson and Gieldgud - and the Queen for good measure! Impeccably. He was a very emotional man - would tell me his woes and sometimes burst into tears of frustration. We both hated the show but did our best and paid the rent. I was glad he became successful in California and perhaps found contentment at long last. We lost touch at that point but I was glad of our brief friendship.

And I'll go one further: here's a link to a photo from the production http://ross-martin-remembered.com/pics/Misc/Theatre-shinbone1.jpg
