Guy's the Limit

Here's a portly and jiggly bear
Just the sort you would figure was square
Although jolly and paunchy
With the dolls he gets raunchy
All while sporting a wig (that ain't hair).

Joan Blondell runs her fingers through Guy Kibbee's toupée in Convention City (Archie Mayo; 1933). Guy Kibbee added comic dimension to such pre-code films as 42nd Street, Gold Diggers of 1933 and Footlight Parade. From Wikipedia: "Kibbee specialized in playing jovial, but not particularly bright, businessmen and government officials."
