Rainbow Over Texas



This photo comes to us from the 1946 Roy Rogers movie Rainbow Over Texas, which also featured Bob Nolan (vocalist for the Sons Of The Pioneers) and Sheldon Leonard, who went on to produce the Andy Griffith Show and, I think we could all agree, much more importantly, Gomer Pyle, USMC.

Much mucher! Sheldon Leonard was the "Hey bud" guy on the Jack Benny radio/tv show!

"In radio, Leonard played an eccentric racetrack tout on The Jack Benny Program in the late 1940s and early '50s. His role was to salute Benny out of the blue in railroad stations, on street corners, or in department stores ("hey Bud, come here a minute"), ask Benny what he was about to do, and then proceed to try to argue him out of his course of action by resorting to inane and irrelevant racing logic".
