Fisher & Marks worked in musicals and musical comedies here and abroad and were signed by Paramount for five films in the 1950s and 1960s. The first in the series was Mr. Rock ‘n Roll. They also tried their hand at recording. They made their first comedy album, It’s A [(Coo-Coo)] Beatles World, in 1964.
The two seemed virtually inseparable. When Mr. Fisher married for the second time, taking vocalist Lydia O’Connor as his bride, Marks was the ring bearer in a civil ceremony at Palumbo’s. As he reached the vows, Judge James Crumlish inquired solemnly, “Do you take this woman for your lawful wedded wife?” And Lou Marks answered, loudly: “We does, Your Honor.”
All went well until Dec. 25, 1976, when they were working in a Miami Beach Club and Al Fisher was felled by a massive heart attack. Dr. James Giuffre was flown to Florida to care for him, and when his patient’s health permitted, Mr. Fisher was flown to Giuffre Medical Center in Philadelphia for recovery.
That was Mr. Fisher’s first heart attack in a series. After each recovery, the team went back on the road, playing a circuit that ranged from [Las] Vegas to Miami to Atlantic City.
They struck a familiar chord in Atlantic City, playing the Claridge Hotel & Casino from mid-1981 to early 1983. Then it was back to the tour, always with stops at Palumbo’s and Wildwood, N.J.
But after the laughs and the clowning were over, Mr. Fisher still faced the problem with his heart. Finally, he suffered a heart attack in 1985 while working at the Downingtown Inn, which forced his retirement. He passed away on July of 1986. Lou Marks passed away in September of 2007 at age 87. ~Phillycom
