(né Dominic Amici, 1908-1993)
Don Ameche played many roles in movies and on TV over the years, but is best remembered for the title role in The Story of Alexander Graham Bell (1939). For years, Ameche was the butt of jokes about his alleged invention of the telephone. Little Blabbermouse in Shop, Look and Listen (Freleng, 1940), clearly impressed with a robotic card dealer that executes cheats, asks eagerly whether Ameche invented that, too.
