I adore Joe Cook, he is my current Dead Boyfriend.

If ever I am voted Miss New York (yes, I know) and am onstage at the Miss America Pageant, and they ask me ANYTHING, Joe Cook's cornflakes monologue will be my reply.

And, he was a dancer, juggler and acrobat--not a good Parkinson's career.

But he had a good run in vaudeville and on B'way before he took ill.
