My Darlin' Darin's Birthday!
Today is the 73rd anniversary of Bobby Darin's birth.
My youngest brother (you know, the one who is nine and dressed up like James Dean for 50's day at his school/counts Bob Hope as his favorite actor/likes to watch Michael Kidd choreographed musicals with me) drew a sketch of Bobby for me. I just love it. I think it's amazing, especially considering the fact that he drew it from memory while he was in a car! What my brother likes to do is draw cartoonish drawings of famous Hollywood stars! Some of them are completely hilarious!
Anyways, back to Bobby Darin...
Bobby was one of the most extraordinary performers and human beings ever! I simply adore him!
"It isn't true that you live only once. You only die once. You live lots of times, if you know how. "
(With his wife, Sandra Dee.)
(With his son, Dodd.)
Here's a little slide-show of Bobby and Sandra I did recently:
Happy Birthday, Bobby!
