Today would have been Vic Morrow's 90th birthday. To honor and remember him, I'm hereby announcing that DKoren of Sidewalk Crossings and I are cohosting a blogathon dedicated to Vic Morrow in April! And we invite you to join us. You can sign up here on my post or over on Sidewalk Crossings.
He also starred on the TV show Combat! for five years, working with an illustrious string of guest stars like James Coburn, Lee Marvin, Charles Bronson, John Dehner, and James MacArthur. Many actors specifically requested a guest slot on the show just so they could have the chance to work with Vic Morrow.
As usual, I've gotten very enthusiastic with creating buttons for this event. Find one you like and share it on your blog or website -- there are plenty to choose from.
