Description: Actor Taking His Work Too Seriously
     Young netters won't remember actor Raymond Massey, Canadian actor who
played the part of Abraham Lincoln in Robert Sherwood's  classic and very
successful Broadway play about that great president. Massey was almost a
double of Abraham Lincoln in looks even without any makeup. He seemed to
grow into the part even off-stage in words, looks, and actions. Someone said
he was trying to grow a face wart to make the Lincoln look even more authentic.
     "Uncanny, isn't it?" someone remarked to George S. Kaufman, famous
     "Uncanny indeed!" replied Kaufman; "Massey won't be satisfied until he
is assasinated!"
