The Theatrical Torsos Of Yesteryear

"A theater review on Monday about a revival of the William Inge play 'Picnic,' at the American Airlines Theater, misidentified the actor whose torso was featured when the play opened on Broadway 60 years ago. It was Ralph Meeker’s, not Paul Newman’s. "

How anyone could confuse two of the most distinctive (male) chests of the '50s is quite beyond me.

Elizabeth Short was unavailable for comment.

Was there even one play written in the 1950s that was not a coded text about being a closeted gay in a small town?
