And the modern day equivalent of Senator Worthington Fuller would be...Senator John F. Kerry. Remember how Lonesome Rhodes tried to teach Fuller how to smile? Well, I remember how the normally gloomy looking Kerry came up with an out of character bizarre Stan Laurel type of smile for the 2004 campaign. After he lost, we never saw that dopey smile again and Kerry returned to his normal glum demeanor.
FUn Fact: In the movie “A Face in the Crowd,” the woman who played the blonde in the commercial holding an extra large size bottle of Vitajex was the wife of James “From Here to Eternity” Jones.
Kerry’s windsurfing was about on the same level as Curly Fuller’s hunting trip.
