Dennis O'Keefe (1908-1968)  actor

Vastly underrated. One I've developed greater appreciation for in recent years. He deserves a day in August during Summer Under the Stars. He was charming and smooth in all genres.

I listen to AOL radio on my phone. It lets you ban artists you do not want to hear. I have Lady Gaga banned, not because I dislike her but I feel she's overrated and there are so many other artists I prefer.

Hope NipkowDisc is having a nice birthday.

 

Larry--

Do people tell you it's their b-day? Or do you have a way of looking it up on here. Just curious. :)

Some people put their birth dates on their profiles. When I started doing this birthday thread I looked at a lot of profiles and wrote down b-days to add them when they came along. Not many people list their birthdays, though. I only have 23 written down at the moment.  In Nipkow's case, he started his own birthday thread this morning in the Off-Topics.

I don't have mine listed.  But I have often said that I have the same birthday as Clark Gable born 75 years after he was.  That makes it very easy to figure out my birthday.

Okay, thanks for explaining how you do that. I didn't see Nipkow's thread.

 

Mine is August 12th, so maybe I should add it to my profile. I share my day with Jane Wyatt and George Hamilton, among others.

Renee is  second youngest child of Martin Sheen, in case anyone isn't aware of this.  Of course, I know that other fans of the Estevez/Sheen family do.

I'm a Martin Sheen fan.

 

That is why I know.  Ramon Estevez is Sheen's real name.  Charlie (Carlos) is the youngest and the only one who took his father's screen name.

 

He has 4 children with his wife. All are actors.  Rene appeared in The West Wing opposite her father.

 

Charlie and Emilio have worked together often with their father.

 

Ramon Jr. appeared in a film with his brothers and fathers which is not very good, but it is the only one with all four of them together.    It's a prison film.

Yeah, I find that interesting as well. There's a lot of (useless?) trivia that can be gleaned when reading about birthdays.

Larry,

 

I think if we have a 100th birthday (whether the individual is alive or deceased), we should have a little more fanfare. Some clip art confetti or cake. Or at least a nice photo of said person. :)
