Classic TV Birthdays: March 9

Daytime soap veteran Jaime Lyn Bauer turns 65 today. The longtime cast member of Days of Our Lives and The Young & The Restless also guested on Baretta, CHiPs and The Rookies.

Other classic TV stars celebrating birthdays: Trish Van Devere (71) was in the cast of daytime dramas One Life To Live and Search for Tomorrow. She is the widow of actor George C. Scott. Actor-voice artist Marty Ingels co-starred in the 1965 sitcom I’m Dickens He’s Fenster, and also guested on Adam-12, The Addams Family, The Dick Van Dyke Show and Family. Ingels is married to actress Shirley Jones (The Partridge Family).

Joyce Van Patten (sister of Dick Van Patten) turns 80 today. She was a sketch actress on The Danny Kaye Show (1963-67) and co-starred in a late 1960s sitcom The Good Guys with Bob Denver. Van Patten has guested on numerous classic TV shows, including Hawaii Five-0, The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis, Mannix, The Odd Couple and The Twilight Zone. She started acting in the 1950s and remains active to this day.

A number of classic TV favorites were born March 9 but are no longer with us. Carl Betz starred on The Donna Reed Show and Judd for the Defense. Del Close was an actor and acting teacher who guested on 1960s sitcoms Get Smart and My Mother The Car. Will Geer is best remembered as Grandpa Walton (The Waltons). Raul Julia was a regular on the soap Love of Life and PBS kids classic Sesame Street. He also had guest roles on The Bob Newhart Show and McCloud. Many remember him as Gomez in the big screen adaption of The Addams Family.

Today was also the day some old friends said goodbye. Journalist David Broder was a columnist for The Washington Post and a longtime panelist on Meet The Press. Bing’s brother Bob Crosby had his own daytime TV show in the 1950s and guested on such classics as The Jack Benny Program and What’s My Line? Film actress Faye Emerson hosted a number of early TV talk shows and guested on others. She was also a frequent panelist on such game show classics as I’ve Got A Secret, To Tell The Truth and What’s My Line?

A comedy legend also died on March 9. George Burns starred with his wife Gracie Allen in the long-running radio and TV series Burns and Allen. He later fronted a 1964 sitcom called Wendy and Me, co-starring Connie Stevens. Burns guested on a number of classics (Alice, The Dean Martin Celebrity Roasts, Here’s Lucy) and produced some classics too (Love That Bob, Mister Ed). He made a comeback in the 1970s, starring in big screen classics Oh God! and The Sunshine Boys.
