Birthday: Robert Zemeckis (born 1952)

Although I'm not that keen on how the Robert Zemeckis's career has gone since Who Framed Roger Rabbit, I still think his second feature as a writer-director, Used Cars, is one of the best and funniest of all American film comedies. The screenplay, which he co-wrote with Bob Gale, is an intricate contraption in which every seemingly stray line and visual bit pays off, and the execution is supremely high-spirited. Most fans' favorite scene, for good reason, is the last in a series of increasingly outrageous pirate car commercials. "Look out, Marshall Lucky, it's High Prices!"
