MINI BIO:

Michael J. Pollard was a diminutive American actor with a cherubic face and a demonic smile. An Actor's Studio graduate, he shot to fame as Bonnie and Clyde's accomplice in 1967 (for which he was nominated for a Best Supporting Actor Oscar). He briefly became a leading actor, but proved difficult to cast and his films were not too successful. In his later career, he returned to character roles.

Gilly Carey: [Gilly startles Lallie Joy, making her drop the bags she was carrying] Gee, I'm sorry!

Gilly Carey: They're too heavy for a girl. Allow me.
[Gilly holds open the door and smiles at her]
Digby Popham: [Irritated] You don't have to be *nice* or nothin', she's my *sister*.

Nick Adams: Look, what can you tell in four days?
George: I'll tell ya what I can tell. I can tell ya that three times a day I get hungry and every twenty-four hours I get an irresistible urge to go to sleep in a bed. I don't wanna beg and I don't wanna steal. I don't want a cop tellin' me I'm a vagrant and runnin' me outta town. I'm sorry to desert you, but I'm not cut out for this kind of a life.


Digby Popham: I remember the night before I left Beulah, I was talking to Pa about seein' the city and the gals and all, and he said: "Amid pleasures and palaces, wherever you may roam, be it ever so humble there's no place like home."
Gilly Carey: He sang it?
Digby Popham: No, he said it. He made it right up! You know, if he ever wanted to I think Pa could've made a great poet.

Michael J. Pollard Facts
An early career break occurred when Pollard was brought in as a replacement during the first season of TV's "Dobie Gillis." Co-star Bob Denver, who was stealing the show as Dobie's beatnik buddy Maynard G. Krebs, was going to be drafted into the Army and had to exit the series. When Denver was classified "4-F" due to a longstanding neck injury and returned, Pollard's character of weird cousin Jerome Krebs was quickly written out.

One of the few actors to have appeared on both classic Sci -Fi shows "Lost In Space" and "Star Trek".

Credited by Traffic drummer Jim Capaldi with coining the term "The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys".
