    122 years ago Jim Carey was born he appeared in Old California and should not be confused with Jeff Carey who played the baddie in True Grit.

    Or not to be confused with the goofball from Liar Liar, Ace Ventura, Dumb and Dumberer, etc........... :lol: :lol:


    72 years ago the actor Robert Blake was born. He appeared in he Greatest Story Ever Told. He has since been charged and put on trial accused of murdering his wife, what the result is I don't know.

    Arthur, he was found not guilty probably 3-4 months ago. I don't know any details about the case, just the fact he was not found guilty. And I think it added about 25 years to the way he looks, he didn't take the whole jail time/trial very well.


    15 years ago the actress Ina Balin died age 53 she appeared in the Comancheros and as Martha of Bethany in The Greatest Story Ever Told.

    Ok if 15 years ago she was 53 that would have made her roughly 24 years old when making The Comancheros. I always thought she was older then that. If you look at she was acting up till her death in 1989. Anybody have info on how/why she died?

    Doh!!! :headbonk: :lol: :lol:

    Thats what I was thinking!! errr maybe that was the problem, I was not thinking. Work has been killing me lately!!!


    66 ago the actress Claudia Cardinale was born she appeared with Duke in The Magnificent Showman, and was one of the screen beauties of the day.

    OOO LALA!!! :wub: :wub: If you have not seen Once Upon A Time In The West check it out, Claudia is in it :wub::wub:


    17 years ago the actress Olive Carey died. Her maiden name was Olive Fuller Golden and she was the wife of Harry Carey and mother of Harry Carey jnr.
    She appeared in many of John Ford's pictures including The Searchers, The Wings of Eagles and for John Wayne, as Mrs Dennison in The Alamo.

    That is very interesting, she out lived Duke. How old was she when she died?

    Sometimes Arthur, a quiet day is a GREAT thing!!!!


    93 years ago the actor and stunt man Lloyd Ford was born. he played Hank in Idol of the Crowds

    Speaking of that movie, I purchased a copy off from EBAY but it is barely watchable and I can hardly watch it. In fact, I have not watched the whole thing. It is, I believe, a dvd copy from a tape. Anybody know of a good quality version on DVD some place?


    15 years ago The Actor Henry Brandon died. He appeared in three John Wayne pictures - A Bald Knobber- Shepherd of the Hills a Kurinua - The Wake of the Red Witch and his most notable role - Chief Scar - The Searchers

    Was he of Indian descent? Or was he like others back then who were made to look like a indian? I liked him in The Searchers.
