Happy Birthday, Steve Martin!

Above images found on the interwebs
I have enjoyed Steve Martin's humor and acting for years.
He's also a novelist and playwright, an award-winning banjo player, and an art collector.  

My favorite movies of his: 
"Leap of Faith" with Debra Winger and Liam Neeson
"My Blue Heaven" with Rick Moranis and Joan Cusack
"L.A. Story" with Sarah Jessica Parker
"All of Me" with Lily Tomlin

I enjoyed his novel, "An Object Of Beauty"

Am pretty sure no cats appeared in any of these productions, however that's no reason to not wish him a fine 74th birthday!

For your viewing pleasure, Steve Martin's infamous "Saturday Night Live" performance from 1978.

    1. If you want to see a really unusual Steve Martin film, I suggest "Novocaine"...

  4. Happy Birthday indeed to a very talented musician (he plays banjo like he was born with one in his hands)and actor and writer.

    1. If I remember correctly, he learned to place banjo while working at Disneyland as a youth.

  5. I didn't know he was a cat person. Very cool. And I recently saw this clip. He had amazing talent. I especially loved his Father of the Bride movies.

    1. I love those movies too, however, the originals with Elizabeth Taylor and Spencer Tracy will always make me sit down and watch 'em again.

  12. TW always liked Steve Martin. I think her fave SM movie is the same as Spitty's human if that's the takeoff on the opera with the big nose.
