Barbara Hershey, Christopher Guest and Tom Wilkinson 75 -- February 5, 2023

Occasionally, I notice that more than one famous person was born on the same day. For instance, Judy Garland and Jake Lamotta were born on the same day, 10-June-1922. I find this interesting because they had so much in common.

Barbara Hershey, Christopher Guest and Tom Wilkinson were all born 75 years ago today, on 05-February-1948.

Barbara Hershey was in many television shows. She wasn't taken seriously early in her career, but I think she got better and more interesting as she matured. Her movies included Hoosiers, Swing Kids and the popular family favorite Boxcar Bertha.

For a spell in the late 1960s and early 1970s, she used the stage name "Barbara Seagull." It didn't last.

I love Christopher Guest's mocumentaries like This is Spinal Tap, Best in Show and A Mighty Wind. He is married to Jamie Lee Curtis.

British actor Tom Wilkinson has appeared in a plethora of movies and television shows.
