Anyone wishing to write to the Bryants may find them at the follow- Cont, on page 12 % .0000l00osf00eei by Jim Jollotta One of my more enjoyable experiences was my meeting up with one of America's greatest comedians-the fellow who brought instantaneous laughter to all audiences the world over. I am speaking of the jolly, inimitable Jimmy Durante. Durante, a poor Jewish boy, was brought up on the wrong side of the track in New York City. Jimmy's mother was uneducated but she had a fantastic determination and like the mother of the Marx brothers, she spent many a day forcing Jimmy up and down Tin Pan Alley and other theater areas having the boldness to actually throw him at the feet of agents. This rough-house treatment finally paid off and in order to get Mrs. Durante off their backs they finally found chores for Jimmy to do around the theater. In 1932 M.G.M. produced the film JIMMY DURANTE with Jim Jollotta at MGM Studios in 1952. "Speak Easily" with the late Thelma Todd, Durante, Buster Keaton and Hed- da Hopper. This was to be Keaton's fare- well to the studio. The knowledge of Keaton's retirement gave major oppor- tunities to Durante-now known as "Schnozzola" due to his nose size. From here on his success was phenomenal! All the major film studios were vying for his talents. Too bad his mother hadn't lived to see just how far her son had gone in the world for which she felt he was best suited. I found Jimmy walking from M.G.M. Studios toward his car and on his arm were several dress suits and I asked if these were what is known as studio ward- robe clothing-lent to the stars by the studio. He told me he owned his own wardrobe and the material and shades were really something. I told him, the same as I tell all celebrities I meet, about Eastport and about the Acme and Wilbur cinemas where his pictures were shown. His screen appearances never did him justice for in person he was very attrac- tive-his nose not nearly as large as it ap- pears on screen, but the camera made it look larger and therein lay the root of his success. The song "Laugh Clown Laugh" fitt- ed Jimmy to a tee. For no matter how many hardships he suffered-he always had a smile.
