    Tommy had the staring role (Bart Collins) in “The 5000 Fingers of Dr. T” in 1953, which was a live actor production of a Dr. Suess screenplay. The movie was as bizzare, psychedelic, and “out-there” as any of his subsequent animated productions. I have always loved the duet sung by Bart and Mr. Zabladowski (the plummer). It is a rare sweet and tender scene between a boy and a man who is not his father; something you will not see in movies these days.
