What a delight this thread is.  I'm seeing names I haven't thought of for years but remember fondly for their work.  Sadly, some of them are no longer here but the memories are not.

 

I had just seen a show Nancy Malone had directed a few days ago and wondered what happened to her.  I remember her from the NY soaps and Naked City as an actress and knew she was a Dynasty director.  Gail Kobe had a similar background and even more success before her death.  It's a shame that they were not more well known as they were great role models for young women who had similar ambitions.  They took over where Ida Lupino left off. 

 

Some of these birthdays appear in our dailies but your's is much more encomposing and very much appreciated.  Thanks a lot!.

Yes, I thought it quite interesting those two ladies shared the same birthday. Their careers were in many respects identical. They were trailblazers in television (both in front and behind the camera) during a time when the industry was dominated by men.

Happy 85th Birthday to fellow Canadian

 

 

William Shatner!

 

I am a long time fan of Mr. Shatner.

 

Besides Star Trek, I love:

 

"Nightmare on 20, 000 Feet," and "Nick of Time" on The Twilight Zone

The Brothers Karamozov

The Outrage

Various documentaries he made

 

 

 

I have a cd called Spaced Out which is a collection of music he "sang" and leonard Nimoy sang.

 

He and Mr. Nimoy were born 3 days apart.

Wonderful thread, Lawrence!  Happy belated birthday to Bogie56, darkblue, and Hibi.

 

Lawrence, I'm so glad that Chico Marx was first on your list of March 22nd birthdays.  If you don't mind, I'd like to post a birthday tribute to Mr. Marx. 

 

 

Happy Birthday, Leonard "Chico" Marx!!

Here's a clip of my favorite Chico scene.  It's his speech from A Night at the Opera.  The speech starts at 1:27. 

 

 

 

Here's a video compilation of Chico's piano performances.  The last two perfomances in the video are my favorites.
