Inspired by a recent viewing of the rat-attack classic DEADLY EYES, I put together a list of my favorite films from the amazing and wonderful Scatman Crothers. He, one of the great character actors of all time and of course the voice of Hong Kong Phooey himself(among other inumerable TV roles). I think I first remember hearing his wonderfully distinct voice in THE ARISTOCATS. I must have seen it in the theater in some kind of re-release. I think I had an LP of it too because between that and Hong Kong Phooey, his voice was, from then on, permanently burnt onto my mind. Scatman is one of those rare actors that always elevates anything he shows up in. His mere presence elevates. Have always been a huge Scatman fan and you know you are too! Scatman fans check out this great group of posts over at the Franklin Mint Blog that chronicle some of Scatman's Film, Television, Print, Music, Cartoon and Exploitation Film appearances.
This site is all about keeping older films in the public consciousness via lists and short reviews. I am the maker of lists and the curator of countless others from a great group of regular contributors. Check back regularly!
