Netflix Movies Starring Stubby Kaye

Sunny, loveable tenor Stubby Kaye with his butterball frame kept his real name a secret for his entire career. He was born Bernard Katzin in New York and started off in the world of entertainment in 1939 after winning a radio contest. Touring as a comedian in vaudeville for over a decade, he also appeared regularly with the USO during the war years. He finally hit it big on Broadway in 1950 when he created the role of Nicely-Nicely Johnson in the smash musical hit "Guys and Dolls" singing his rousing show-stopper "Sit Down, You're Rockin' the Boat" and solidified his status a few years later as Marryin' Sam in "Li'l Abner" in 1956. He preserved both of these signature roles on film. Other stage musicals sparked by his presence included "Fiddler on the Roof", "Good News" and "Grind". Read more on iMDB
