He Made A Great Impression
|Frank Gorshin literally began making an impression in his first appearance on “The Ed Sullivan Show” (the same night The Beatles debuted) more than 40 years ago. “The Man of a 100 Faces,” who died last week at age 72, is pictured above with Canarsien and radio personality Jimmy Diele in a photo taken when Gorshin was appearing as George Burns in a one-man Broadway show. Over the years, Gorshin, who’s probably best remembered in the question-mark green suit and bowler hat he wore as “The Riddler” on the 1966-69 “Batman” television series, honed his skills and accumulated an extensive repertoire of celebrities in his act, including Kirk Douglas, Burt Lancaster, Marlon Brando, James Cagney and Dean Martin.
