Jimmy Durante and his nose

Comedian Jimmy Durante tips his hat as he shows off his famously large nose -- the one that he called his "schnozzola." Durante himself was nicknamed The Schnozzola or just Schnoz. A vaudeville song-and-dance man who made it big on television, Durante was born in 1893, meaning this photo was probably taken in the late 1940s or 1950s.
