I am rather busy these days and completely forgot about his birthday, shame on me... Belated Happy Birthday, dear Reggie! =)

You are right, Carrie, what a nice way to start a day with. And thanks for reminding us about his birthday. Best occasion to watch one of his movies again. "The Lost Weekend" will always stay my first choice. I just have a weak spot for Don Birnam...
