Jelly-Roll Explained

In the previous post I mentioned a quote from Scott Schwartz about the recently deceased film director, Bob Clark...

Scott Schwartz, who played Flick in "A Christmas Story" and kept in touch with Clark, called Clark one of the "nicest, sweetest guys that you'd ever want to come in contact with."

"It's a tragic day for all of us who knew and loved Bob Clark," Schwartz said. "Bob was a fun-loving, jelly-roll kind of guy who will be sorely missed."

I could tell it was nice, but was curious as to exactly what he meant by a "jelly-roll kind of guy."

After a few very pleasant emails with Scott himself, here's his explanation...


A jelly-roll kind of guy... it's one who's got a little belly on him, smiles and brings joy to those he loves.

Bob was a great man, and I'll miss him.

See? Nice.
