Yes, Bobby was unique in pop at that time; I did not know that his sister was his Mother; maybe genetics then played a huge part in his dying following heart surgery, wasn't it? Practically all singers are not exceptional actors or actresses, at least in multiple roles I think we can agree. I would rate Frank Sinatra and Reba McEntire as two who successfully have performed multiple acting roles.
You might want to go to Blockbuster's and look for a VHS/DVD copy of a movie called "Captain Newman, M.D." Bobby played a very good role in my opinion of a troubled soldier being treated by an Army psychiatrist played by Gregory Peck.
Yes, I have seen Bobby in "Captain Newman, M.D.". I agree he was an excellent actor. He was just so multi-talented. I liked him in "Come September" with Rock Hudson, Gina Lollibridgia and Sandra Dee. He also did another very cute picture with Sandra where they were newlyweds and her French Mom was teaching her that a man could be trained just like a dog. LOL It's was a 9th grade girl's dream movie as long as Bobby was in it. I'm going to try to find that album of his where he's singing folk music. I just felt like if he had lived he would have been a great artist and really received recognition for his work.
When I was 22 I was in Vegas with some friends. We were in a casino, I can't think of the name, but it's where Elvis played a lot. I was just wonderfing around trying to decide which machine to play. I was looking down into my cup of change, not paying attention and I ran face first into someone. I looked up and it was Bobby. I couldn't move. He was so sweet and comforting. I finally managed an I'm sorry and Thank you. LOL Talk about star struck, Wayne Newton came up behind him and I was talking to them both at the same time. I looked over and my friends were lined up with their mouths open. It really was a brush with fame. LOL It definitely will be something neither I or my children, bless their hearts, will never forget. I'm sure as I become older I'll just keep repeating it. That will be my old lady story. LOL
Bye for now,
