Visited Frank`s resting place on the 11th in Connecticut. I now plan on going whenever I have the opportunity! I was surprised to see that there were no flowers or anything left for such a talented and sweet man.

OH BOY do I LOVE this guy to pieces! In my opinion, Frank McHugh is terribly underrated, to think he did 150 films...a rather prolific career. He is currently, my newest obsession. As a character actor, he is SUCH a treat to watch! A definite scene-stealer. So versatile. I fall in love with every character he plays, simply because he is just so darn lovable & sweet. At times he has the innocence of a child, and you just want to squeeze him! Frank has a gentle way about himself, that, i`m sure didn`t differ from real life, you can tell just by looking at him that he was a sweet soul. Can`t wait to watch him in more things! I`ll definitely be watching out for him on TCM! :)
