Happy birthday to the incomparable Grace Kelly, who would have been 83 today. In this indelible scene with Jimmy Stewart from Alfred Hitchcock's suspense masterpiece Rear Window, she reverses the Sleeping Beauty story.
Speaking of November 12 birthdays, happy birthday also to our very-much-alive friend, Washington playwright Alan Sharpe, 2009 recipient of GLAA's Distinguished Service Award. And may I say that, like Mr. Hitchcock, he has a knack for casting beauties. Not blondes, however.
