Facts

  • He was awarded a Golden Palm Star on the Palm Springs Walk of Stars in 2000.
  • Allegedly regretted turning down the sequels for The Love Bug (1968).
  • According to his commentary on The Love Bug (1968), he was offered $2000 a week to replace Curly Howard of The Three Stooges. He refused. The story seems unlikely, however, since when Curly died he was immediately replaced by his brother Shemp Howard, who had originally been replaced by Curly when Shemp left the act to go solo while the Stooges were still in vaudeville.
  • He was awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for Live Theatre at 6834 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California.
  • Biography in: “The Scribner Encyclopedia of American Lives”. Volume 7, 2003-2005, pages 224-226. Farmington Hills, MI: Thomson Gale, 2007.
  • Next door neighbor of Sandy Koufax in childhood.
  • Although his on-stage humor was not nearly as raw, in retrospect, as many of the young comedians who would succeed him, his frequently ribald performances in nightclubs and in concert came as something of a shock to those who had enjoyed his “cleaned-up” (at the behest of the censors) performances on television and in films.
  • Towards the end of his life, he was raising money for an animal shelter.
  • Biography in: “Who’s Who in Comedy” by Ronald L. Smith, pg. 201-202. New York: Facts on File, 1992. ISBN 0816023387
  • Served three years in the US Army with an antiaircraft unit during World War II. On a furlough in 1945, he returned home and bought a ticket to see the musical “Oklahoma!”. He decided on a career in show business following his discharge.
  • His real name, Lenny Hacker, was used as the name of a character he played in episode 1.05 (“The Entertainer”) of Space Rangers (1993).
  • Son of Philip Hackett and Anna Geller.
  • Father of Sandy Hackett, Ivy Julie, Lisa Jean.
  • In 1953 gossip columns reported that Universal Pictures wanted to team Hackett with his friend, popular baritone Alan Dale, as the studio’s answer to Paramount’s box-office sensations, Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis. Nothing came of the idea because Dale preferred to remain a solo act. However, Hackett did appear in Universal’s Walking My Baby Back Home (1953) later that year. In 1954 Hackett did replace ‘Lou Costello (I)’ (q) in Universal’s Fireman Save My Child (1954) when Costello’s ill health forced him to leave the picture shortly after filming began (Costello can still be seen in some long shots). Hugh O’Brian replaced Bud Abbott, who wouldn’t work without Costello. Universal talked about teaming Hackett and O’Brien in another film, but the picture bombed at the box office and the re-teaming with O’Brien never took place.
  • Quit doing appearances in 1996 after he suffered stage fright, including extreme dizziness, for the first time in his career. This event immediately followed gum surgery, which Buddy believes had something to do with the situation.
