Today, June 24th, is the 96th birthday of classic sitcom actor Al Molinaro (1919), who many of you may remember from the 70’s gem, “Happy Days”. He also starred in the 70’s version of the immortal “The Odd Couple” (he was the very popular Murray the Cop). I bring this star to light because, when I covered this date last year, his name was left off the list in oversight…for which I apologize.
Also on this classic summer day are; former “Knot’s Landing” bombshell Michele Lee (1942), The Yardbirds’ (among others) guitarist Jeff Beck (1944), former New York governor George Pataki (1945) and actor/drummer (Fleetwood Mac) Mick Fleetwood was born in 1947.
Former stars of the first “RoboCop” movie (you know, the “good” one) Peter Weller (1947) and Nancy Allen (1950); actor Tom “Tiny” Lister, Jr. (1958), former Sharks’ journeyman Bernie Nicholls (1961), Tears for Fears’ Curt Smith (1961), and the ever impressive Candice Patton, who plays Iris West in the CW hit, “The Flash”, was born in 1988.
Be back soon…I promise…
