Like the title says, tell me the name of someone who was well known at one time (for anything) and has largely been forgotten today.

Joseph Dunninger. Was once one of the most popular radio personalities in America. Virtually unknown to this generation.

Fred Allen would also qualify, I think.

And not to forget Julius LaRosa! (Or did you?)

My neighbor rang my doorbell at 2:30 a.m. this morning, can you believe that, 2:30 a.m.!? Lucky for him I was still up playing my drums.

Oh my gosh, good one!

How about John Cameron Swayze (anchor, and utterer of the famous, "Timex. It takes a licking and keeps on ticking.")
My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".

The Menendez brothers weren't famous. They were infamous.

Mario Lanza - opera people know him, but he was the #1 Hollywood film star in 1951. Had his own hit radio show, made movies throughout the 50's. Died at 38, though.

We're doing a great job with "forgotten" stars. Without Google I wouldn't know who half these people are. Smile

I only had a very faint recollection of Julius LaRosa, and so did some looking around. Found a YT video that detailed the events surrounding Julius's on-air firing by Arthur Godfrey. Very interesting!

Ironic, isn't it, that Arthur Godfrey himself now probably qualifies for this topic?

I'd include any TV personalities/stars from the 1960s - 1980s.
