Netflix Movies Starring Jack Mullaney

Dark-haired, congenial-looking actor Jack Mullaney was one of those gangly and goofy nice guy types who pervaded innocuous 1950s and '60s film and TV comedy.

Jack's poor schmucks were the huggable, cleancut kind that every mother would want as a son. In minor film parts from 1957, he provided amiable comic relief, hanging around and about the periphery of silly, youth-oriented fluff, including the roles of an Air Force captain in The Absent Minded Professor (1961), Vincent Price's slow-thinking assistant Igor in Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine (1965), and Elvis Presley's klutzy sidekick in Tickle Me (1965). Jack was also featured in Presley's film Spinout (1966), but he and the film were met with little fanfare. Read more on iMDB
