Today – Roger Smith is more famous for being the husbad of Ann-Margret – but in the 50’s early 60’s her was a star himself
James Cagney was a mentor to him – they stared in 2 pictures together – and with Roger played the adult Patrick Dennis to Rosalind Russell’s Auntie Mame
And who can ever forget 77 Sunset Strip
Roger did a lot of stock…both musical comedy and drama
Here is his 1959 album Beach Romance
I used to love me some Mr. Roger Smith! He was so the cute one on 77 Sunset Strip. I used to like how perfectly coiffed hair always was and he always had a great smile. I remember seeing Auntie Mame and being so excited when I realized he was Patrick Dennis.
I can’t say I’m familiar with his singing though. And his rolled up pants look a little dorky. Actually the more I look at this LP cover it looks like a Roger Smith stand-in. I’d also guess that Mr. Smith or his stand-in have absolutely no idea how to play the guitar. I love how buried his/his stand-in’s feet are in the sand. Must’ve been a long photo shoot.
hahahaahaah!!!! i know ! first thing i noticed was his lack of feet!!!! hahaahah!!!! i didn’t know he had any records….wow…going to youtube now to hear him!
you’re right about him playing guitar…but he’s pretty god at hitting a guitar….same thing, right?
seems like if they were going to call it “beach romance” there should’ve been a girl on the cover with him…
