Classic TV Birthdays: March 3

Happy Birthday to Gloria Hendry. The 65 year old actress guested on Love American Style and The Snoop Sisters. She was also a Bond Girl in 1973’s Live and Let Die.

Hattie Winston turns 69 today. She was in the cast of 1970s children’s series The Electric Company and later had roles on Becker and Homefront.

Today was also the birthday of some classic TV stars since departed: Joe Conley (The Waltons), James Doohan (Star Trek), child actor Bobby Driscoll (voice of Peter Pan, later guested on M Squad and Rawhide), and Harold J. Stone. The veteran character actor co-starred in The Grand Jury (1960) and Bridget Loves Bernie (1972). Stone also guested on a wide range of shows, including Barney Miller, Gunsmoke, Naked City and The Untouchables.

Barney Martin was born March 3, too. The longtime NYPD police officer later turned to acting, guesting on The Odd Couple and The Patty Duke Show. He was a regular on The Tony Randall Show (1976-78) but we remember him best as Jerry’s #1 dad Morty on Seinfeld.

We lost some classic TV friends on this day, including actor-comedian Lou Costello (The Abbott & Costello Show), Louis Edmonds (All My Children, Dark Shadows), William Frawley (I Love Lucy, My Three Sons), Fred Friendly (CBS News executive), actor-singer-dancer Danny Kaye (The Danny Kaye Show) and Alice Pearce. Pearce was the actress who first played nosy neighbor Gladys Kravitz on classic 1960s sitcom Bewitched. She died during the show’s second season and was replaced by actress Sandra Gould.
