Hollywood bit players on baseball cards: Part 22

Today's bit player has two acting credits. The first is in the 1970 film Which Way to the Front, where he has a brief role as a German soldier being decorated by Jerry Lewis.

Over a decade later, he appeared in a 1981 episode of Fantasy Island, seen here with Jenny Sherman.

Did you recognize former Dodgers great Don Sutton? Jerry Lewis was a big Dodgers fan and cast Willie Davis in a big role in Which Way to the Front, but also enlisted Sutton for a brief scene. The Hall of Famer with 324 career wins also played himself on The Krofft Supershow, The Carol Burnett Show, and Wonderbug, and had several game show appearances, most notably on Match Game. Here are Sutton's first and last Topps cards.


  1. Look at them ears on the rookie card, lol.

  2. I guess I'm used to seeing Sutton with curly gray hair, because no way I would have guessed him. Great stuff.

  3. I would not have recognized him.

  4. Guessed him on the second picture...surprised Don didn't appear in more stuff.
