TVFMF Salutes Ross Brioux on his 95th
Dad was born the year Birth of a Nation premiered. He's still getting used to "talkies." Ingrid Bergman, Anthony Quinn, Arthur Miller, Orson Welles, Frank Sinatra, Billie Holiday, Thomas Merton and 60 Minutes creator Fred Friendly were all also born in 1915.
Arthur Godfrey, Buddy Hackett, Chris Tucker, Fannie Flagg, James Colburn, Richard Basehart, Van Morrison and Richard Gere were all born on Aug. 31. See, there's a TV tie-in to everything.
Ross can be seen around his Etobicoke neighbourhood sporting every TV network cap I give him. He is a walking TV billboard. Ross and Marg are both good with the fact PBS still carries Lawrence Welk.
