John Kerr

I just had to watch South Pacific. Has anyone else noticed what a bad actor he was?

Cute, though!

He wasn't as talented as me!

Why did you “have to” watch it, OP?

At least Kerr realized he was a crap actor. That's why he went back to school and became a lawyer.

Was he sleeping with Joshua Logan?

Sorry, but I love him in South Pacific, except when he "sings."

R3 - for research.

I find it interesting how I, as an older adult, reflect on back to my memories of various actors and actresses who were categorized as major stars at some point or all throughout my life. Some of them really were crap-tastic & I fail to understand fully as to how they ever entered into much less stayed in the rarified cosmos of major stardom.

The flat delivery and boring-as-hell Robert Taylor particularly comes to mind specifically as one actor who leads me to want to do a face palm when I see him "acting" onscreen.

As to Kerr, how to you all react?

Ah yes Stewpot. Talk about VPL.

Bad actor? Why, he won the Tony for Best Featured Actor in a Play! And he won a Theatre World Award!

R7, Americans all were older-looking back then. Maybe because they embraced adulthood---behaviors, attire, grooming, attitudes---instead of remaining as juvenile as possible for as long as possible.

Me? I'm a Boomer behaviorally-imprinted by "Peter Pan!"

R13 - maybe he is still doing theatre acting in SP. He yells and speaks in a toneless way.
