#5 Beatty-Cole


Chic Silber said...

I believe Jimmy James (Plott Jr)

started on Ringling in wardrobe

before Kenny Dodd hired him to

clown on Beatty for many years

before he became the ringmaster

Harry Kingston said...

The greatest voice you ever heard.

Roger Smith said...

Jimmy James in every respect lived up to his idolization of Harold Ronk. He had stellar command of presence in the Big Top, and his authoritative baritone sent acts into the ring feeling like a million dollars.

Chic Silber said...

He was also very good at

pronouncing difficult names

Bob Momyer said...

Jimmy also did some voice-over work during the off seasom
