Frank Sinatra was born on this day, Dec 12th, in 1915.

My very favorite song he ever sang was "I Fall In Love Too Easily" from ANCHORS AWEIGH.

Carol Reed was born on this day, December 30th, in 1906.

One of my favorite Reed film scenes is the introduction of Harry Lime in THE THIRD MAN.

Fun fact: the co-producer, David O. Selznick, wanted Noel Coward to play the role of Lime. Hmmm...

My favorite ballet dance scenes always seem to be those in which the dancer is not wearing Pointe Shoes.

The very lovely Moira Shearer was born on this day, January 17th, in 1926. She is so beautiful in this scene from THE STORY OF THREE LOVES. She almost looks as though she is floating.

One of my favorite modern day actors, Simon Pegg, was born on this day, February 14th, in 1970.

I laughed so hard the first time I saw SHAUN OF THE DEAD, I was nearly crying. The record toss scene is priceless!

Robert Donat was born on this day, March 18th, in 1905. I wish he had made more films. He had such a musical voice. I love this recording he made of him reciting poems from T.S. Elliot's "Old Possum's Book Of Practical Cats."

The wonderful Harold Lloyd was born on this day, April 20th, in 1893.

One of my favorite Lloyd clips is from his film WHY WORRY, trying to pull a tooth from giant man Colosso's mouth.
