Pan and Scandal

His hilarious nickname was "Pinky"
He played characters sicko and stinky
And his rowdy soiree
Was too loud and too gay,
An affair filled with kicks rather kinky.

Supercilious staple of horror movies Lionel Atwill in The Ghost Of Frankenstein (1942). From Brian's Drive-In Theater: Atwill's career nearly came to a halt in 1941, following a Christmas party he hosted in late 1940 that allegedly involved an orgy, a minor, naked guests, and pornographic films. Read our previous limericks on Atwill and the scandal here and here.
