98 years ago today, on Friday, July 18, 1913 comic actor Red Skelton was born in Indiana.
Red Skelton's star for TV on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
And since my parents’ first date was to a Red Skelton movie (circa 1944), I may owe my life to him.

Good old Red. I don’t know anyone whose parents or grandparents never heard of Gertrude and Heathcliff.
