Ms. Joan Blondell, Happy 104th! and Happy 102nd to Fred MacMurray!

Joan Blondell was a sassy, pre-code era actress who wasn't afraid to cause a stir. She is most known for her roles in Gold Diggers of 1933, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, Nightmare Alley, and Grease as Vi the waitress in 1978.

Fred MacMurray almost always played likable, easygoing roles with the exception of Double Indemnity (1944) and The Apartment (1960), two of his most notable roles. But, he will also always be remembered for all of the Disney films he starred in such as The Shaggy Dog (1959), and the Absent Minded Professor(1961). He was extremely handsome and always seemed to me like the guy you would want to be your dad. Anyway,Happy 102nd Birthday Fred!
