Crocker, Keith BILLY GILBERT - Hollywood's Forgotten Comic Genius Media- Film,
Media- Video,
Performing Arts- Theater
Billy Gilbert is easily one of the most recognized character actors on screen, yet so few people know anything about him. Born to Metropolitan Opera singers, Billy Gilbert was in Vaudeville since age 12, and upon being spotted by Stan Laurel during a stage show in 1929, was introduced to the world of motion pictures. He ended up working with the major comic talents of the day, including Laurel and Hardy, The Three Stooges, The Little Rascals, The Marx Brothers and W.C. Fields. He also acted along side Charles Chaplin, John Wayne and Frank Sinatra. This program celebrates Billy Gilbert's career in cinema, and utilizing various clips from his decades of work shows you why he was one of the favorite foils of Hollywood funny men.

Fiske, David Broadway Goes to War: "Soldier Shows" of World War I History,
Media- Other
During the first World War, presentations called "soldier shows" allowed theatrical producers to not only entertain the public, but provide a show of patriotism. Some of these shows were put together by individuals who served in the military (such as Sergeant Irving Berlin), though others had no military background. The shows were light entertainment, featuring skits and musical numbers, and utilized many performers who were actually in the service. Proceeds from soldier shows went to projects intended to improve the lives of those serving in the armed forces of the United States.
