Likely the best comic rider

ever was "Poodles" Hanneford

Chic Silber said...

I believe he was the

brother of George Sr

Chic, Isn't that backwards? Worked with Poodles, daughter Gracie and his mother, years ago. Peggy and I stopped to see George in Baraboo in 2007 (or 2008).

Chic Silber said...

I don't understand Billie Lou

There were 3 generations of Georges

Might you have meant the 3rd who is

still working (maybe on Carden)

Roger Smith said...

There were also successive generations of Elizabeths. They included Mrs. George Hanneford, Sr., their daughter Elizabeth Rebecca (nicknamed both Lizzie and Becca), who married Ernest Clarke, and was the mother of Laura Elizabeth Clarke, forever known and remembered as Ernestine (not on her birth certificate), or Ernie.

Backyard and dressing room photos remind us that Edwin "Poodles" Hanneford, minus his ring makeup, was movie star handsome.

Sorry guys, I didn't know them historically. I only knew the ones we worked on shows with. Some friends, some acquaintances, but first of all people. I like to remember them that way.
