Red Buttons passed away last Thursday...

Yeah, ok. Most of you are now saying, "Who?" He was a comedian that was in numerous movies, but I only really saw him in one movie, but it still ranks up there in my top 5 movies of all time, Hatari! He was "Pockets". And since this is one of my favorite movies, I thought his passing was worth noting.

I saw this movie when I was little and fell in love with it. I thought it was amazing to watch the animals in their habitat, the actors' associations with them, how they caught them, etc. As Giliane would say, this movie will date me as being an old fart. That's ok.

If you haven't seen it, it's well worth it. And if you'd like to see it, just ask me! I have it on dvd! Below is a pic from the movie, Hatari, with Red Buttons on the right.
