I was quite pleased to see that this guy is still alive. Several years ago (when I was still married), I went with my parents to see Thedore Bikel in Dallas, Texas as Tevye in Fiddler on the Roof. Immediately, I knew I was seeing an icon. After all, I am the musical theatre/old Hollywood buff, and I knew that Theodore Bikel originally played Captain von Trapp on Broadway back in the original production of The Sound of Music. As that is one of my all-time favorite musicals, I was pretty excited to see him. And on this date in 1924, Theodore Bikel was born in Austria. I had no idea that he was also in The African Queen. That is one of the only Humphrey Bogart films I enjoy. I also learned that he is on his third wife (2008). Goodness, he sounds like he is still going strong.
