Can we talk about Tommy Sands and Tommy Kirk?

Why did their careers end?

Tommy Kirk was gay, and at contract renewal time, Walt Disney told him that he'd "better start liking girls fast" or else he was through. Tommy liked boys and he was done at Disney. And he was a child star who didn't make a smooth transition to adult actor.

Don't know about Tommy Sands. Wasn't he in "Babes in Toyland" with Annette? Loved that hair!!

Tommy Sands was briefly married to Nancy Sinatra, but her boots went walking. Here is Tommy today.

I thought Tommy Sands was blacklisted my Frank Sinatra and "retired" to some place in Hawaii.

Linking these two entertainers because of their first names is equivalent to comparing Adolf Hitler and Adolph's Meat Tenderizer and asking "Wha' Happened????"

Tommy Sands the romantic singer.

Tommy Sands were more akin to Jimmy Darren.

Tommy Kirk was more akin to Tim Considine or perhaps Paul Peterson.

R3 When did Tommy Sands become Miyoshi Umeki?

by Anonymousreply 19November 11, 2012 10:45 PM

Tommy Sands is in an episode of "Hawaii 5-O (Original)" an sings execrably throughout.

R20 I guess that was a bad moment for Tommy among many moments of his life. There are bad moments and good moments. Bad performances and good ones.
