Judge Smails

Fictional Ninny

Born: 1980
Best known as: The pompous country club president in Caddyshack

Judge Elihu Smails is the comical bad guy in the 1980 comedy Caddyshack. Played by actor Ted Knight, Smails is a pompous snob with a fondness for white pants, yachting caps, and golf. As the tyrannical president of the local country club, he tangles with crude newcomer Al Czervik (played by Rodney Dangerfield) and golf whiz Ty Webb (played by Chevy Chase). The movie remains a cult favorite with sports fans, and the judge's lucky putter, which he calls Billy Baroo, has become a pop culture in-joke of its own.
