My cat, Mr. Howl, is curled up right next to me, waiting for me to come to bed.

And Lovey is meowing in the bedroom.

Thank you, Mamie. I'm a February baby--the 28th--and I forgot that Zero Mostel and I share a birthday. Also Vincente Minnelli and Bernadette Peters and Tommy Tune.

And this year is a leap year!

re: Passing Angels - for February

Almost every picture of Gale Gordon I've seen shows his left eyebrow arched. That's the main difference. (Also it needs a mustache!)

Yes the arched eyebrow, 'stache and the receding hair line. I can see it now with the side by side.
You have an incredible library of pictures thanks for sharing them!

Thanks Mom. Best12bars brought Andrea King to my attention after last year's post. She was an actress at Warner Brothers and a very good friend of Besty's. He keeps a web site in her honor and I got that beautiful photo from his site. (I hope he doesn't mind too much!)

Mamie, I don't mind at all! What a lovely way to stumble onto an old friend. Thank you for remembering her in your February tribute.

I've been thinking a lot about Andrea lately, because she would have been 89 last Friday. I miss her friendship, her wisdom and her humor terribly. And on Saturday, I met with "Diva" in between his shows at the Pantages, and we walked right past her star on the Walk of Fame. I hadn't seen it in years, and I pointed it out to him.

Then, to find your tribute today... It made me smile a lot.

Yeah. I'm not entirely sure why but I've always been irritated by people who memorialize the deaths of others. I believe in celebrating their lives - not their deaths. Thus - the angels birthday thread!
