Helmut was my favorite when I was a teen-ager because of his handsome face, little did I know he was my doctor`s cousin, who saw his picture on my dresser while he was making a house call because I had the German Measles,so my doctor called it the Victory Measles because we were at war with Germany.

His biggest fan was Diana Wyngarden. My friend just found this out and laughed for an hour because she did not believe there was ever someone with that name. I`m going to surprise her this morning with this wonderful picture above, along with all the movies and credits.

I have admired Mr. Dantine since I first saw him in movies back in the 40s. I last saw him today in MNission to Moscow and like both the movie and Mr. D`s performance.
