Most people remember Jim Backus as the millionaire Thurston Howell the third from the TV series Gilligan’s Island, but he was also the voice of the bumbling, near sighted Quincy Magoo.

He also appeared in numerous films, including Rebel Without A Cause where he played James Dean’s father, and several radio programs in the 1940s.
