What happened to the original Scaramouche?


Did I miss something, or did they ever explain what happened to the ugly guy who was the troupe's original Scaramouche? I realize they made an announcement saying Andre had decided to stay with their show as the new Scaramouche, but I don't think they mentioned what happened to the other guy. Was he fired? Did he die?

He was probably fired.

I'm still trying to figure out who the actor was who played this role.

NM - it was Henry Corden and he's listed in the cast here - turns out I'd already learned this but forgot it! Oh well.

I always felt sorry for the poor dude. Sad for him that he was so disfigured, compared to the good-looking Scaramouche.

Probably sacked.

Pretty people always prevail. Ugly dudes are kicked to the gutter. Then we die.
