Remembering Adam West on His 89th B-Day

Happy 89th Birthday, Adam West! (September 19, 1928 – June 9, 2017)

I’m certain he’s having a great time celebrating his birthday up there in the Batcave in the sky with Batgirl (Yvonne Craig), Commissioner Gordon (Neil Hamilton), Chief O’Hara (Stafford Repp), Alfred the Butler (Alan Napier), and Aunt Harriett (Madge Blake).  As we all know, he was Batman back in the 1960s.

His hometown of Walla Walla, Washington, is doing a big Adam West Day celebration in his memory today for his birthday.

I had the pleasure of meeting his several times over the last 15 years.  Most recently, I saw him in March of this year at the Hanover Mall for a comic book convention in Hanover, MA.

Happy Birthday, Illya aka Ducky!

Happy 84th Birthday, David McCallum!

The former Man From U.N.C.L.E. star (Illya Kuryakin) back in the 1960s and currently playing medical examiner Dr. Donald “Ducky” Mallard on NCIS is celebrating his birthday.  During this past weekend, he celebrated the 50th anniversary of his wedding to his wife Katherine Carpenter.  David has been busy with the celebrations!

RIP, Harry Dean Stanton!

Last Friday, news broke about character actor Harry Dean Stanton passing away at the age of 91.  He was in a lot of TV shows before his movie career took off in the 1980s. Recently, he had appeared in the Twin Peaks: The Return series on Showtime this past summer, and he was in the Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me movie that came out in 1992.  A new movie he had done is going to be released in less than 2 weeks.

Remembering Jerry Lewis

It was more than a week ago when Jerry Lewis passed away in his Las Vegas home at the age of 91.  He was a legendary comedian, actor, singer, etc.  He hosted his self named telethon for many years.  He was the former partner of Dean Martin.  In fact, he and Dean reunited on the telethon in 1976.

It’s been a pretty sad summer.  So many losses in pop culture.  We’ve lost Bill Dana, June Foray, Stephen Furst, and Jay Thomas in the last few months.

I remember seeing a lot of Jerry Lewis in movies that I watched on TV while I was growing up during the 1970s.  Also, I saw Jerry pop up through a window on Batman.
