...the onetime video store clerk turned outspoken director, producer, screenwriter and sometime actor -- Quentin Tarantino, born March 27, 1963. He won Best Original Screenplay Oscars for "Pulp Fiction" (1994, shared with Roger Avary) and "Django Unchained" (2012). He has enchanted audiences and critics with character dialogues and frequently outrageous movie scenes. He's also daring -- splitting "Kill Bill" into two volumes (released in 2003 and 2004, respectively) and changing the course of history at the end of his 2009 World War II film "Inglourious Basterds." 
 
Tarantino has announced that he will retire from directing after his next two film projects.

Apparently Jakeem only wants to take on one at a time, and the one of his choosing.

 

Otherwise, he'd have mentioned also the two YOU did Sagebrush, and....

 

DIANA ROSS  73

and

JENNIFER GREY  57

 

Incidentally, here in the Detroit area back in the late '50s and early '60's, we had a Saturday TV show that presented old western serials and cartoons hosted by a fictional character called "Sagebrush Shorty".

 

Know anything about this?   ;)

...the Academy Award-winning actor Alan Arkin, born March 26, 1934. He received Oscar nominations in his first years in movies (1966 and 1968 Best Actor nods for "The Russians Are Coming, The Russians Are Coming" and "The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter," respectively). But he never won a gold statuette until 40 years later for his supporting performance in "Little Miss Sunshine" (2006). He also was nominated as Best Supporting Actor for his work in the 2012 Best Picture winner, "Argo." 

 

One of my very favorites- and a nice guy, too!  I'm looking forward to seeing "Going With Style,"

His next film will be a remake of the 1979 heist film "Going With Style," which starred George Burns, Art Carney and Lee Strasberg. The new version, which opens April 7, 2017, teams Arkin with fellow Oscar winners Morgan Freeman and Sir Michael Caine.

...Bonnie Bedelia, who was born March 25, 1948. She began acting in theater productions in the 1960s and made her screen debut in John Frankenheimer's 1969 film "The Gypsy Moths." That same year, she co-starred in Sydney Pollack's drama "They Shoot Horses, Don't They?" She went on to star as drag racer Shirley "Cha Cha" Muldowney in the 1983 biopic "Heart Like a Wheel" and as Holly Gennaro McClane opposite Bruce Willis in the first two "Die Hard" thrillers.
 
From 2010 to 2015, she starred as Camille Braverman in NBC's multi-generational drama series "Parenthood."
 
Bedelia is the aunt of the former child star Macaulay Culkin and his actor brothers Kieran and Rory.

...New Zealand's Keisha Castle-Hughes, born March 24, 1990. On January 27, 2004, she received an Academy Award nomination for her performance in the film "Whale Rider." She was 13 at the time, making her the youngest Best Actress nominee in history (the record was broken in 2013 by 9-year-old Quvenzhané Wallis of "Beasts of the Southern Wild"). Castle-Hughes went on to star in the films "Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith" (2005) and "The Nativity Story" (2006).

 

During the past two years, she has appeared in the Emmy Award-winning television series "Game of Thrones" as Obara Sand, one of the treacherous "Sand Snakes" of Dorne.

...the two-time Oscar-nominated actress Catherine Keener, who was born March 23, 1959. She earned her first Best Supporting Actress nomination for her performance in Spike Jonze's offbeat comedy "Being John Malkovich" (1999). Her second was for her portrayal of "To Kill a Mockingbird" author Harper Lee in the 2005 biopic "Capote." 

 

A regular in the films of director Nicole Holofcener ("Lovely and Amazing," "Friends with Money"), Keener plays Allison Williams' liberal mother in Jordan Peele's hit horror satire "Get Out."

...Gary Oldman, who was born March 21, 1958. He is one of the movies' great character actors, having played such diverse characters as Beethoven, Count Dracula and punk rocker Sid Vicious. According to boxoffiicemojo.com, he is 13th on the list of highest-grossing actors, thanks in part to his appearances in the "Harry Potter" series, Christopher Nolan's "Dark Knight" trilogy and "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" (2014). His movies have earned $3,301.9 billion worldwide.

 

In August, he will co-star with the all-time box-office champ -- Samuel L. Jackson -- and Ryan Reynolds in the comedy "The Hitman's Bodyguard." He's already being mentioned as a 2017 Best Actor contender for his portrayal of Sir Winston Churchill in the upcoming World War II drama "Darkest Hour."
