# CLII…Post # 110…”And, Frankly, My Dear, I Don’t Give a Damn”…

One of the most brilliant actors of his generation, Clark Gable (1901-1960) will forever be remembered for his starring role in the 1939 classic film, “Gone With the Wind“, and it was his utterance of the above line that will go down in history as one of the most classically delivered lines of dialogue.  He enjoyed a three-decade long career which included over 60 movies, most notably with his co-stars (movie divas the likes of Joan Crawford (8 films), Myrna Loy (7) and Jean Harlow (6)).  Also, the American Film Institute has rated him as the 7th greatest male actor of all time.

Also, sharing February 1st as their birthday are:  poet/author Langston Hughes (1902-1967), former Russian Federation president Boris Yeltsin (1931-2007), singer Don Everly (from The Everly Brothers) and actor Garrett Morris (1937), the late “George Jefferson”, Mr. Sherman Helmsley (1938-2012), and late journalist Jessica Savitch (1947-1983).

In an odd coincidence, today would have been the birthday of the man who shares my given name, albeit with a different middle name (his is Ambrose, mine is Andrew), who is now known as Rick James (1948-2004).

Further down in “The List” is late Warrant lead vocalist Jani Lane (1964-2011), as well as the late star of “The Crow“, Brandon Lee (son of the world-renown martial artist Bruce Lee) {1965-1993}, and, of course, in another father/child coincidence, Ms. Lisa Marie Presley celebrates her 45th birthday today (1968) along with comedian Pauly Shore, also 1968.

Finishing today’s list are “Dexter” actor Michael C. Hall (who also co-starred in “Six Feet Under”), who was born in my birth year of 1971 and current teen-girl heartthrob Harry Styles, from the hideously ubiquitous One Direction, was born in 1994.
