Q: In the late '60s or early '70s I saw a movie with James Whitmore called “Give 'Em Hell Harry.” I haven't been able to find anything on it. It was here in the Omaha area for only a short period of time. Can you give me any info on it?
A: James Whitmore, who died in 2009, was a distinguished stage, TV and screen actor. His credits include “The Shawshank Redemption” (as the tragic inmate Brooks). He also did several one-man stage shows as famous characters, including Will Rogers, Theodore Roosevelt and Harry Truman. “Give 'Em Hell, Harry!,” the show where he played Truman, was recorded on a 1975 tour for release in movie theaters and later to television.
