Jack Kelly: Kings Row - The Rest of the Story - Part I

Hello All!

As you may remember, I wrote a post in 2009 about Jack Kelly's short-lived (1955-'56) television series Kings Row. After purchasing a number of rare stills from the series online last summer, I'd planned to do a photo feature about it, as well. But, there are so many JK photos, only one Bartista, and so little time...

I saw some of the same images from Kings Row on the JK Facebook page today and they reminded me of my long-deferred photo feature. The photos in my Kellection have the original episode info on the backs, so I can provide answers to questions about the other actors and actresses in the photos. I also have some additional images from Kings Row, including one very special photo of JK with an "easy rider" and a beloved actress in the splendor of her youth.

The original caption for the photo above reads: "Jack Kelly (Parris), Peter Votrian (Tim), Adrienne Marden (Mrs. Brownton) in 'Warner Bros. Presents,' 'Kings Row' ('Two of a Kind') for ABC-TV. "

Now, don't ask me what JK is doing with that bell:

I can tell you, however, that this is another still from "Two of a Kind". And, the lovely lady is Myrna Fahey, who would later appear in several episodes of Maverick, including "Duel at Sundown" and "Mano Nera".

Now, here's a very distinguished looking JK with winsome Nan Leslie, his King's Row co-star, in a still from the episode "Wedding Gift":

Stay tuned for more Kings Row stills--coming after a pause for Saint Patrick's Day in TDS. :)
