Vin Scully and Chick Hearn, a couple of days apart. Both were Los Angeles sportscasters and defied the odds by being very good at it for a long, long, time and thus have attained the status of legend.


RIP Chick and Happy Birthday as well.


Happy Birthday to you, Vince. I miss your voice already (as having just retired)

O that Gerard Phillipe should have died so young. Splendid actor. I best know of him from audio recordings of French Lit. I grew up with him in college anyway with his flawless recitations of La Fontaine (the fables) and an absolutely splendid version of Le Bourgeois Gentilehomme of Moliere. Incredible performance and outstandingly funny. And there is a brilliant audio performance of Le Petit Prince in the original that is famous.


RIP mon bon ami.

Kirk Douglas is 100  actor


Happy 100th to Kirk Douglas. He has starred in some of my favorite films noir, and I understand he now writes poetry. Just making it to the century mark is impressive!

John Hart  (1917-2009)  actor


He is the man who replaced Clayton Moore for a few seasons as The Lone Ranger when problems developed between Moore and the producers.  (Ironically, he played outlaws on several early Moore episodes.) His voice was lower and softer than Moore's but he was very convincing.  Moore returned for the last three seasons.

So glad to see that Dick Van Dyke is enjoying another birthday.


I wonder what he thought of the colorized versions of The Dick Van Dyke Show, which were shown on December 12 (it was Monday, right?!). I enjoyed them, more than I thought I would, in fact.
