The Birthday Thread

532 posts in this topic

Inspired by the great work done by GregoryPeckFan during the month of February, and the nice photos posted by bansi in the Candids thread, I've decided to start a thread to list all of the movie, tv, or otherwise related individuals birthdays.

Are these actors with the same names of famous actors another generation of them like Vaughn , for example?

 

I wanted to see Trumbo when it was in theatres, but I ran out of time.

 

I watched Six Feet Under through the whole series.

 

Magnani I've seen  a lot of her work.

 

I'm glad you decided to start a year round birthday thread.

 

I have months where I'm so busy that I have little online time, so I did not want to do one.

I should probably list what they are (actor, director, writer, etc) by their names.

 

 

Matthew Vaughn is a writer-producer-director.

 

He produced Lock, Stock and 2 Smoking Barrels (1998) and Snatch (2000), and started directing with Layer Cake (2004). Since then he's directed Stardust (2007), Kick-As-(2010), X-Men: First Class (2011), and Kingsman: The Secret Service (2014).

Re: Mickey Dolenz;

 

I grew up watching reruns of The Monkees  and was besotted with Davy Jones.  I was devastated when he died.  Unfortunately, I never saw them in concert.

Thank you Lawrence for starting this post. James Broderick, the father of Matthew,died too young of cancer at 55. He costarred in my favorite dramatic TV series of the 1970`s FAMILY. James played Douglas Lawrence the lawyer father of Meredith Baxter, Gary Frank, and Kristy McNichol. Sada Thompson portrayed his loving wife Kate.I loved this series and never missed a show. Gary, Kristy, and Sada won Emmy`s for their performances, and James should also have won.The first two seasons I own on dvd. 

 

I remember James also costarring in the Al Pacino film DOG DAY AFTERNOON 1975 as the police officer in charge.

Happy birthday Dargo!

 

When my mother turned 64,  I wrote her a poem of lyrics based upon When I'm 64.

Some of these names don't mean anything to me and some I know very well.

 

That is why I am glad someone like Larry is doing this thread now that 31 days of Oscar is over instead of me because he is familiar with a lot more eras than I am.

Good for you. Who don't you know? The only ones that I didn't know were Frank Wilcox and Hugh Sanders, but they seemed to have a lot of credits, mostly from the golden era of films. Wilcox has 335 credits, while Sanders has 217. I thought others may know them, so I listed them. As for the rest, I was familiar with them all. If you're not, google/imdb them, or just ask me.

 

And thanks for quoting the whole list again. That really helps things get bogged down.
