To balance the "RIP" thread, I thought it would be good to have a "happy birthday" one.

So, let me say Happy Birthday to Larry Bird. I had the good fortune of being at Indiana State when he was playing. Amazing. One of the greatest ever.

If he was in the movie, I watched it. One of the greatest of the non-steroid tough guys.
Yep. From back when they still made real movies instead of just blue screen slo mo special effects all spliced together.

I don't think he was ever in a movie where he ran out of a building in slow motion just before the whole building blew up behind him. Whew!

And while some of his stuff was kind of corny (Lust for Life), and some was over the top hilarious (Spartacus), he still did a fine job more often than not and even made some great films (Paths of Glory).

If he was in it I'd still watch it. He's really the last of a breed.
One of my favorites is Lonely are the Brave.

If there was a movie with Kirk and Burt Lancaster in it, my religion required me to watch it.

We saw him in Chicago before he was famous in King Lear. He played Edmund and Emma Thompson was the fool. Great stuff. I loved him in Henry V and as Wallander.
