That wave-struck kiss on the beach

has been satirized often in the media, like American Gothic. That was B. Lancaster, of course, on the other pair of lips.

I'm not a great fan of Regis Philbin, but I respect him for putting up with Bishop as JB's sidekick on a talk show many years ago. Bishop had a great dislike for Philbin, and much of it was easily visible on-air. Regis kept on smilin' through.

I just realize a connection: Sinatra got an Oscar for the GI that Borgnine beat to death in Eternity; Bishop was indeed the [least-known] member of the Pack. Probably the "made him an offer he couldn't refuse" line from the first Godfather related to the putative story of how Sinatra got loose from his Dorsey contract to take the movie role.

One of my favorites was her role in "Heaven Knows, Mr. Allsin", co-starring Robert Mitchum.

Another fine [erformance was in "Tea and Symphathy".

Bishop was funny in stand-up appearances in early black and white TV variety shows. I recall some of his movie roes, and thought he was well cast.
