Jack Kelly: Remembering All Who Served


In honor of Memorial Day, here's a still of Jack Kelly in To Hell and Back, the big-screen biography of Audie Murphy. Murphy, the most-decorated US combat soldier during World War II, played himself in the film.

The caption for the photo says: "TYPE CAST - Irish Jack Kelly portrays an Irish doughboy named 'Kerrigan' in To Hell and Back, Universal-International's great war drama starring Audie Murphy in the Technicolor CinemaScope filmization of Murphy's own best-selling biography, chronicling the emotion-packed story of the heroic Texas youth who became the most-decorated soldier of World War II."

In real-life, JK served his country in the Air Force.

Jack Kelly: Howdy, Sis! :)

Hello Everybody!

At last, I have a photo of Jack Kelly with his sister, actress Nancy Kelly, to share with you:

As you can see, there is definitely a family resemblance, especially around the eyes.

The caption on this photo (which is stamped 10/17/1955) reads: "Nancy Kelly, who plays one of the leading roles in Warner Bros' production, The Bad Seed, is met at the airport by her brother, Jack Kelly, upon her arrival from New York. Jack is the leading man of Warner Bros' television series, Kings Row for ABC-TV".
