Spot the 'mo!

Why, it's birthday boy Roddy McDowall, of course! A favorite escort for many Hollywood divas, when Roddy wasn't squiring them around town, he was appearing with them in practically every other film made in the 1960's and 1970's. For instance: with Elizabeth Taylor in Cleopatra (1963); Lauren Bacall in Shock Treatment (1964); Natalie Wood in Inside Daisy Clover (1965); Jennifer Jones in Angel, Angel, Down We Go (1969); Angela Lansbury in Bedknobs and Broomsticks (1971); and Barbra Streisand in Funny Lady (1975).

Besides being an in-demand ladies' man, McDowall was a "well known bachelor" who liked to hang with the boys.

We miss Roddy McDowall, and the elegance he always brought to even the most indistinguished project (Rabbit Test, anyone?). Like so many others, it seemed that not only was Roddy everywhere - if not on film, then on nearly every television series ever produced - but that he would be here forever. And, in many ways, he will.

  1. Isn't it ironic that Tab Hunter is holding a sausage?

    Poor Roddy. We miss him.

  2. Norma - Swooning over Roddy, Tab, or Natalie's boat-neck retro print?

    Barbara - Tab is about to plunge that sausage into Roddy's cake.

  3. I would love to see film of Tab just fucking the living daylights out of Roddy's ass. Thats because I'm a dirty minded bastard. Hugs!

  4. Tab is about to plunge that sausage into Roddy's *chocolate* cake, TJB.
