"HAPPY BIRTHDAY" to late great actor CLIFF ROBERTSON (9/9/23 - 9/10/11), who's film & TV career spanned half a century + included such classics as "PT 109" (1963) starring Robertson as young John F. Kennedy in WWII, "Obsession" (1976), a thriller about a businessman who falls for a woman who is an exact lookalike of his murdered wife, and "Charly" (based on novel 'Flowers for Algernon') for which he won the 1968 Oscar for Best Actor, as a mentally-handicapped man who via an experimental procedure becomes a genius. Modern audiences may know him for his role as a fascist U.S. President in JohnCarpenter's 'Escape From L.A' (1996) and as Uncle Ben in The "Spiderman" Trilogy (2002- 2007). Note that Robertson was born Sept. 9th, 1923 and died just one day after his 88th birthday in 2011. That's not the only interesting connection he has to September. On Sept. 11, 2001 Robertson, a veteran pilot and aviation enthusiast, was flying directly above the World Trade Center in New York at the very moment the first hijacked jetliner struck the North tower. (All air traffic in the U.S. was grounded shortly thereafter).
