TOMMY RALL

Farewell to Tommy Rall  who has died at aged 90.

A terrific dancer in KISS ME KATE, SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN BROTHERS, MY SISTER EILEEN. A fine singer too.

Thinking about Tommy’s brief film career, it’s a shame he didn’t make more films , and not just musicals.

  1. The wonderful Tommy Rall. A pleasure to watch in all those titles you mention Vienna. I wonder what happened to THE SECOND GREATEST SEX (1955) Haven’t seen this since TV in the 60s. R I P Mr Rall

  2. Tommy was on Broadway in the I’ll fated musical JUNO with Melvyn Douglas and Shirley Booth. Based on Sean O’Caseys Juno And The Paycock, with a wonderful score by Marc Blitzein. Audiences today might accept a bleak show with an unhappy ending but not in the fifties.

  3. wonderful dancer, apparently he also was an opera singer and sang at the New York City Opera. later in his life he became a visual artist. how wonderful that he dedicated his life to art.
