Kent Taylor as Boston Blackie
Opinions on the pencil thin varied.
Pearlie: That's a sketch!
Clint: Damnable looking.
Me: You remind me of Blakey from On The Buses or maybe George Roper from Man About The House.
Rod: Really suits you mate.

Today was the day. It was like trading in an old worn out husband for a younger model.
Sorry there are no pictures. I couldn't have done that pencil thin justice. But here is one of Blakey from On The Buses.
