Happy Birthday Lloyd Bridges
It's also Martin Luther King Jr's birthday, but it's never "observed" on the actual date, anyway. Unless it happens to fall on the third Monday of January, commonly known as National "Why is the post office closed?" Day.
Besides, I was more interested in the fact that 2 deceased actors who starred in the great Airplane! share a birthday in the same week. Father of Beau and Jeff Briges, Lloyd passed away in 1998 and would have turned 96 today. Here's a short clip of his running gag from said movie.
