George Kennedy

Happy Birthday to

George Kennedy

85 today

This way George. Like most actors of his generation George is a World War 2 veteran, under the command of General Patton. Indeed his first hollywood jobs were related to that experience including a stint as a military advisor on "Sgt. Bilko". His big screen debut was shouting "I'm Spartacus" which must be considered an amazing way to start in film. Although he will almost certainly be best remembered for Joe Patroni, the straight talking engineer in the Airport series.
