Brooks Was Here

. . .But he decided not to stay.  James Whitmore graduated today.  Congratulations Jim.


James Whitmore
October 1, 1921 – February 6, 2009


  1. I grew up with James, but I liked him most in Shawshank. When he was younger, that mouth full of teeth could make him look a little threatening; but as Brooks, you just couldn’t imagine a sweet old guy like that in Shawshank. But I’m sure he’s going to like it where he’s going next. 😉
