1Roles in Disney films
2Distinctive high-pitched voice, best known as Winnie the Pooh
1I've always loved the theater very much. I've always been in it. I hate being away from it. I'm very stubborn--I like to do what I want to do. And what I want to do most is theater.
2I didn't like making silent movies. Perhaps it was because I was from the stage and accustomed to a completely different routine.
3I came to Hollywood at a bad time. The movies were in a state of turmoil. Sound was coming in and silents were going out. Nobody thought I was suitable for talkies.
4Walt came to me, and he's such a stickler for voices, and said when you're finished with what you're doing today on Winnie the Pooh see what you can do with a snake because I can't find the right voice for it. I thought, wouldn't it be funny to have a snake with an aching back because it would be such a looong ache? (About how he became Kaa in The Jungle Book (1967)).
5If you do not know where you are going, any road will take you there.
1In 1946 & 1947, sang and acted in five different Gene Autry westerns (four of them in 1947), twice playing a character named 'Droopy'. His characters were usually part of the comic relief inherent in Gene's westerns, almost a second sidekick.
2Although he never married, Sterling Holloway did adopt a son named Richard Holloway who survived him when he died in 1992.
3His first picture was a silent, The Battling Kangaroo (1926) as Napolean French.
4His father, who was a grocer, was also the mayor of his birthplace, Cedartown, Georgia for a time in 1912.
5According to Joe Collura in a full-length article/interview on Sterling in "Classic Images," Sterling was the distant relative of Lady Penelope Boothby, an English stage actress, who was immortalized on canvas by artist Sir Joshua Reynolds.
6Educated at the Georgia Military Academy and performed in school plays while there.
7Was enrolled with the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York at the age of 15.
8In his late teens he toured with a stock company of "The Shepherd of the Hills".
9Introduced the song standard "Mountain Greenery" along with Bobbie Perkins in "The Garrick Gaities" in 1926.
10A director once told him he was "too repulsive" for the [silent] silver screen and he stopped making movies for nearly five years. Following the stock market crash of 1929, the money factor eventually drew him back to making sound pictures.
11Was associated for a time with the Pasadena Playhouse, and took part in a musical comedy "Hullabaloo" while there in 1931. Somebody saw him in the show and he was cast in Blonde Venus (1932) starring Marlene Dietrich.
12Turned down a contract with Louis B. Mayer at MGM because he didn't want to be a star.
13Worked on a few Will Rogers movies and was injured in a couple of them. Once a shelf loaded with objects fell on his head after Rogers lassoed the prop and pulled it out of place; once a gun that Holloway was supposed to fire in a scene accidentally exploded in his hand.
14Drafted by the Army in 1942 and served with the Special Services. While there he helped develop a military-themed show called "Hey Rookie" which ran for nine months in Los Angeles and profited $350,000 for the Army Relief Fund.
15Died on the 29th anniversary of the Kennedy assassination.
16Holloway grew up at 301 S. College Street in Cedartown, Georgia. The street which formed the corner on which Holloway's house was located is now known as Sterling Holloway Place.
17Enlisted in the U.S. Army on 19 July 1942. Height and weight given as 5' 9" and 124 lb.
18His big break came in 1925 when he introduced Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart's first hit song, "Manhattan," in the Broadway play "Garrick Gaieties."
19Had major roles in two different film adaptations of "Alice in Wonderland." In Paramount's 1933 version, he played the Frog. In Disney's 1951 animated version, he provided the voice of the Cheshire Cat.
20He was an avid art collector.
21Holloway was officially named a Disney Legend in 1991.
