    Re: Happy Birthday Gene Hackman

    One of my most favorite actors! I'd watch him read a grocery list. Compelling and always human in his roles.

    He quit acting in 2003, and why not, he was 83.

    Happy Birthday, yesterday, Mr. Hackman!

    If he was 83 17 years ago, that would make him 100 right now.

    Ugh. I'm math challenged when I do it in my head. My bad.

    Gene Hackman is a consummate craftsman- a great supporting actor and lead actor to boot. In fact my favorite GH movies are the ones where he isnt even in the lead like Downhill Racer and Bonnie & Clyde. Pity he doesnt act anymore but he deserves a good life in retirement.
