Biographie

Career
Benny Bartlett was a child prodigy on the piano at eight years of age. His first stage role was when he was ten days old. At age four he was playing the trumpet, directing and singing with his own dance orchestra. He played over radio. He appeared in an RKO musical, Millions in the Air (1935), playing the piano. The next year he appeared in a short for Paramount, performing a composition he had written at the age of nine. The studio signed him to a contract soon afterwards. Bartlett began appearing with many of Paramount's biggest stars, and became such a hot property that he was often loaned out to other studios.


Later career and personal life
By the early 1940s, with the onset of puberty, he had reached the awkward age where child actors couldn't play juveniles anymore.

Bartlett joined the military during World War II. After his enlistment was over he resumed his acting career, and was cast as a member of the gang in The Bowery Boys comedies.

He exited the series in 1955, and shortly afterwards left the film business entirely.

Après s'être cassé une jambe au cours d'un reportage sur un circuit automobile, le photographe de presse L. B. « Jeff » Jefferies se retrouve dans un fauteuil roulant.

C'est un mercredi d'été et il fait particulièrement chaud. Jeff passe son temps à observer ses voisins qui, pour s'aérer, laissent leurs propres fenêtres ouvertes. Parmi les locataires d'en face figurent un compositeur, un couple mûr et leur petit chien, une jeune danseuse – « miss Torso » –, qui danse seule le jour et le soir invite des hommes de tous âges chez elle, une dame qui s'adonne à la sculpture abstraite, un couple de jeunes mariés, une femme d'une quarantaine d'années qui vit seule – « miss Cœur solitaire » (« miss Lonelyheart ») –, ainsi qu'un autre couple : un homme d'une carrure assez imposante, et sa femme, malade, semble-t-il, qui reste au lit toute la journée et avec laquelle il semble fréquemment se disputer. Jeff apprendra plus tard qu'il s'agit de Lars Thorwald, un représentant de commerce, et de son épouse Anna.
