He later excelled in other comic roles, co-starring with Laurel and Hardy, Our Gang and, in his last picture (Unfaithfully Yours, 1948) Doris Day. He made over 100 two-reelers for RKO studios, known collectively as his "Mr. Average Man" comedies. In these he played the long-suffering husband, a prototype of so many future TV sitcoms. Kennedy died of throat cancer one day before a Hollywood testimonial dinner was scheduled in his honor. Two items.
