Let’s reveal Ginny’s mystery guest.
I was in one Virginia Weidler film.
I was in THE YOUNGEST PROFESSION (1943).
I spent most of my career going by a name now identified with someone else, dang it!
For most of my post-Ginny career, I used the name now used by a guy who sweats to oldies.
I spent most of a decade at MGM, but didn’t make a name for myself until television.
My movie roles were minor, but I scored a major hit when I became Sgt. Preston of the Yukon.
Who am I?
Richard “Dick” Simmons, born on this date in 1913.
Bonus question-I am associated with a catchphrase. What is it?
As was true of the radio show, at the end of each episode I would turn to my loyal dog, Yukon King, and say, “Well, King, this case is closed.”
ginnyfan would have also accepted, “On King! On you huskies!” which I probably said in most episodes.
