Snooky (Stu Weltman) should have walked away with an Oscar
5 March 2004 | by (Roanoke VA USA) – See all my reviews

In my humble opinion Snooky (Stu Weltamn) was the star of the show.

His good looks, Damon Runyon voice and his impressive nose made him among other things an icon.

Along with the likes of Victor Mature with a slight touch of Ben Turpin.

What an actor! He is a real sweet guy, a king of gentle thug with a great mug!

Get Stu out there again!

He is a bit long in the tooth and grey in the hair dept...(what he has left)

What a character...

Even his mother loved him!
