Birthdays: Actors

It is very easy to think of privileged moments that a number of actors born today have shared with me:

Jean-Pierre Leaud (born 1944): Repeating "Antoine Doinel, Antoine Doinel, Antoine Doinel" into the bathroom mirror in Francois Truffaut's Stolen Kisses.


Michael Murphy (born 1938): Giving Jack Tanner's big off-the-cuff speech to his staff, captured on film unbeknownst to him, in Robert Altman's and Garry Trudeau's tremendous mini-series Tanner '88.


Vincent Kartheiser (born 1979): Dancing up a storm in perhaps the single most joyous scene in the entire run of Mad Men.

Tyrone Power (1914-1958): Struggling with how to save the most lives in a severely overcrowded lifeboat in Richard Sale's brilliant Abandon Ship!

Richard E. Grant (born 1957): Doing the "elevator pitch" for the death-penalty thriller Habeas Corpus in Altman's The Player, a scene that will reverberate throughout the rest of the movie. (Tim Robbins' reactions here are priceless, too.)

Roger Rees (born 1944): On stage as Dickens's Nicholas Nickleby in the eight-hour Royal Shakespeare Festival production, one of my great theatrical memories.
