Maybe John Raitt was a bit stiff in film in "The Pajama Game", but it was his first (and only) major film performance; it's possible he was much better acting on stage. He won a Donaldson
Award, the predecessor ot the Tonys, for his performance in "Carousel". Plus, he did practically every male leading role in musicals in regionals and summer stock. That voice was glorious, and he wasn't half-bad looking either!
