Since TCM is featuring these two actors:  Leslie Howard and Basil Rathbone. Part of Howard's attraction is the intelligence that radiates throughout his performances.  And since it's the Baz's birthday, I should also note that he was known for being an intelligent and highly cultured gentleman.  His memoir, In and Out of Character, is a delightful read that reflects on theater, literature, music and the arts.  It's too bad that financial circumstances forced him to take many mediocre roles in his later years.

As odd as it may sound, George "Gabby" Hayes was said to have been very intelligent, well-spoken, and often discussed world events, philosophy and other intellectual pursuits for hours on end. He was also supposedly very well dressed and groomed unless he was filming.

And lemme guess here, Kf. You still follow the sport of intercollegiate Lacrosse to this very day, right?!  ;)

Yup.  I was even an officer in the notorious Johns Hopkins Pep Band.  I attended the 1983, 1984, and 1985 championship games.  Back in those days, it was just us and the University of Virginia who had bands at lacrosse games.  Now it seems that there's 15 or 20 schools that do.

Hard to believe Steve Martin's IQ is 142! :lol:
