Scatman Crothers was one of those lifelong showmen, a performer from his earliest days until the end of his life. His six-decade career saw him drumming in speakeasies to audiences including Al Capone, singing on the radio during its golden age, jumping to roles in movies and on TV, and finding an unexpected talent for cartoon voice work late in his life. Many know him best for an iconic role: In Stanley Kubrick's 1980 horror classic, The Shining, he played telepathic chef Dick Halloran. The performance won Crothers a Saturn Award for Best Supporting Actor and ensured him a place in movie history. But it was far from his only notable role.
