On this day, in 1955, we lost Shemp Howard. :'(❤🌹
Without a doubt, forever my favorite stooge and Howard brother ever.
May you keep resting in peace, Shemp!
Today’s Birthday: Buster Keaton. 🎈
Born in October 4, 1895 he was best known for his silent films, in which his trademark was physical comedy with a consistently stoic, deadpan expression, earning him the nickname “The Great Stone Face.” Critic Roger Ebert wrote of Keaton’s “extraordinary period from 1920 to 1929, [when] he worked without interruption on a series of films that make him, arguably, the greatest actor–director in the history of the movies.
So… Today marks 91 years since we lost Rudolph Valentino.
Rudolph became my favorite actor from the Old Hollywood so today isn’t a light day for me.
He died 91 years ago and I am 31 years old, so I am asked how I get this sad when this date comes… Some people capture your attention and admiration in the first moment you see them, it doesn’t matter if they are still alive or gone a long time, and Rudolph, like Marilyn and Lillian, did this to me.
Today is the date I wanted to go till where he’s resting to take some flowers, but won’t be possible for me to do this today, sadly, so I will spend the hours I will have left reading his poem books and buy some flowers in his memory.
Clearly he was a talent gone too soon and unexpectedly.
I am thankful for all the videos of him that have been uploaded on YouTube, so I can download them and always have with me, and I am also thankful that the world could have had him, even that for only 31 years.
Forever remembered, Rudy! 💖🌹
Today’s is to be celebrated as Moe Howard’s birthday. 🎈 He would have turned 120 years old today.
He was born Moses Harry Horwitz on June 19, 1897, in the Brooklyn, New York City neighborhood of Bensonhurst to Solomon Horwitz and Jennie Gorovitz, the fourth-born of five brothers of Lithuanian-Jewish ancestry. He was named Moe when still very young and later called himself Harry. His parents and brothers, Benjamin and Irving were not involved in show business, but Moe, older brother Shemp Howard, and younger brother Curly Howard all eventually became known as members of The Three Stooges. He loved to read as older brother Jack recalled: “I had many Horatio Alger books, and it was Moe’s greatest pleasure to read them. They started his imaginative mind working and gave him ideas by the dozen. I think they were instrumental in putting thoughts into his head to become a person of good character and to become successful.” This helped him in his acting career in later years, such as in memorizing his lines quickly and easily.
Happy Birthday, Moe 🎂🎁🎉
