TV & Radio

Jimmy guest starring on “Bonanza,” in the episode “The Auld Sod.”

As film roles became scarce, Jimmy moved into the burgeoning medium of television. He would soon become a television fixture, appearing in dozens of episodes of anthology series, westerns, crime dramas and comedies. Series and episodes for which photos or video clips are available, are so marked.

Details of Jimmy’s role in the sitcom “It’s A Great Life” can be found by clicking here.

I am currently compiling a list of Jimmy’s radio performances, stay tuned to this page! As this site grows and more clips and reviews are added, this page will reflect that. There’s a lot to come!
