Who Was Wallace Berry
24 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In the mid "50's" I saw part of Barnacle Bill on CBS-TV in Chicago. I don't hesitate to say that Wallace Berry is my favorite actor of all times, bar none. The fact that he was as course in real life as he was on the screen is what endears him to me the more. He is someone like the lower middle class, blue collar, working man in real life; someone who was not a snob and with whom I can identify. So he really was not an "actor" per se, he just played a script as a natural.

He could play any role he chose but my favorite genre was his comedy and when Marjorie Main was the leading lady. They were as well paired as Kathryn Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart or in later days like Jackie Gleason and Art Carney. They worked their craft with talent and self assurance; they were not the products of modern technology as are modern actors. They were the real thing, the likes of which, sadly, are known no more.
