I guess the fact that Dick Button acted in a number of movies, tv shows, and Broadway plays is not that surprising, since of course Dick won two Olympic gold medals (1948 and 1952).
However, I never knew that Dick had an acting career. His resume is pretty amazing when you add in all of his skating accomplishments on the ice, in the broadcast booth, and as a producer of ice skating events, along with his acting credits. I don't recall Terry Gannon ever bringing up Dick's acting career during any broadcasts to affectionately rib Dick, as Terry often enjoyed doing (so perhaps Terry isn't aware of it either).
Another thing I learned is that Dick had suffered a head injury about 22 years before he fell in 2000 and hit his head on the ice at a public rink. He is very fortunate to have successfully recovered from both of these head traumas.
In one of manleywoman's fascinating interviews, Frank Carroll also revealed that he tried his hand at acting too for a short time after he retired from amateur skating.
