Birthday boy James Edwards with Lloyd Bridges in "Home of the Brave"

Pioneering actor who was among Hollywood's first - years ahead of Sidney Poitier - to crush the stereotype of black males as shiftless illiterates. Although in some pictures Edwards would portray subservient characters (e.g. "General" George C. Scott's valet in Patton (1970)), he delivered true dignity in his performances. He is especially remembered for his leading role in "Home of the Brave" (1949) in
which he was outstanding.

Great portrait of Anna Magnani, Joe!

Here are a couple of candid shots of today's birthday girl with Tennessee Williams. No date on these, but I'd put them during production of The Rose Tatoo.

First of all, I am sorry to read of your health issues, Joe. How can Providence burden someone who only gives joy and education to others? (One of many questions I hope we have an answer for someday). Please take care, and know that whenever you appear, you bring happiness with you. Love "seeing" you!

I really appreciate your nod to James Edwards on his birthday. He was such a good actor and deserving of more appreciation.

BTW, that wonderful picture of the Heavenly Express cast and crew posted on John Garfield's birthday by Professional Tourist did show Burl Ives. He was the large, very well-groomed fellow in the three piece suit between Harry Morgan and Nicholas (later Richard) Conte on the right of the picture. I guess Burl let it all hang out once he hit the movies, adopting a more familiar shambling, sometimes menacing but mostly genial persona.

Stanley Cortez looks like a more interesting version of his brother Ricardo! Great image, PT.
