    Silliness was Conway's stock in trade and he was a master. That's high PRAISE!
    Peter Sellers was highly acclaimed and he was likewise silly.
    In comparison, Bean's silliness is just inane.

    "his Carol Burnett silliness", do you mean that in a positive or negative way?

    I don't remember Conway from McHale's Navy either. I guess I was well sitting in those days and did not watch much television.
    I never "got" Chaplin or Sellers or Three Stooges or Abbott and Costello but Conway made me laugh.

    Go watch A Shot in the Dark (the second in the Pink Panther series) and tell me you didn't laugh at Insp. Clouseau!

    So Charlie Chaplin was famous for silliness?? And Danny Kaye? I guess you told those critics a thing or two!
