    I saw him on an episode of Maverick as a superstitious bad sheriff… Maverick beats him by unleashing hordes of black cats!

    And he also played “Doc” Golightly, former husband of Holly Golightly (Audrey Hepburn), in Breakfast at Tiffanys. He was actually a good actor.

    Aluminium? Steve must not be American.

    It may have been aluminum powder. Back then a lot of real materials were used to create dyes and paints. Toxic to breathe, too. It’s only in more recent years that the world has produced safer alternatives.

    Ebsen did not develop an allergy to aluminum powder. The powder was SPRAYED onto the cream on his face. He couldn’t help but inhale it, and it coated his lungs and nearly killed him. When they recast the part, they mixed the powder with the cream and smeared it on to Haley’s face. (Source: an interview with Ebsen in which he told the story)

    The “Captain of the Winkie Guard” was played by Mitchell Lewis, not Buddy Ebsen: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0507568/

    Ya beat me to it! He was lucky to survive. So grateful for the memorable parts he played afterward!

    Interestingly, aluminum is used in antiperspirants and baking powder…how far have we progressed?

    I was talking about the spelling. Americans use only one “i” in the word.
