Another "Great One" is Gone

So long Kinnie...you will be missed. Rest in Peace

From the movie "Battleground"...

Holley: [as they begin marching from the battlefield, passing their replacements as they enter] Hey, Kinnie - what ever happened to Jody?

Sgt. Kinnie: All right, come on! Come on! What do you want these guys to think, you're a bunch of WACs? Alright, alright pick it up now. Hut, two, three. Hut, two, three, four. Hut, two, three, four. You had a good home but you left...

I Company: You're right!

Sgt. Kinnie: Jody was there when you left...

I Company: You're right!

Sgt. Kinnie: Your Baby was there when you left...

I Company: You're right!

Sgt. Kinnie: Sound off!

I Company: One, two

Sgt. Kinnie: Sound off!

I Company: Three, four.

Sgt. Kinnie: Cadence Count

I Company: One, two, three, four. One, two, three, four!

Sgt. Kinnie: Your baby was lonely - as lonely as could be ...

I Company: Until Jody provided company!

Sgt. Kinnie: Ain't it great to have a pal...

I Company: Who works so hard to keep up morale!

Sgt. Kinnie: You ain't got nothing to worry about...

I Company: He'll keep her happy till I get out!

Sgt. Kinnie: You won't get out until the end of the war...

I Company: In nineteen hundred and seventy-four!

Sgt. Kinnie: Sound off!

I Company: One, two.

Sgt. Kinnie: Sound off!

I Company: Three, four...

Rest in Peace, Mr. Whitmore.

I recall him in several movies, but for some reason, I still remember him best from the MiracleGro plant food ads.

I think he also did endorsements for cheese-flavored Purina dog food, but I could be imagining that.

RIP, Mr Whitmore. You were one of a rare breed of honest, decent actors, who treated acting as an art, not as a stepping stone to notoriety, for which we thank you.
