Ken Richmond strikes his final gong!
Did anybody see the NY Times obit of Ken Richmond? He was the guy who struck the gong at the opening of J. Arthur Rank films. Had a heart attack at 80. Almost as sad was the revelation that the gong was actually made of papier-mache and, “if you hit that gong, you would have gone straight through.” There are some things you just don’t want to know. Anyway, RIP Ken Richmond.
