Happy Birthday to Quelle of Out of the Past
If you're a regular reader of this blog you might also be familiar with the classic film blog Out of the Past. Well, today is the birthday of Quelle, who has run that blog for the past seven years. Out of the Past was one of the first classic film blogs I started reading and Quelle was one of the first classic film bloggers I befriended. She was the first person I ever followed on Twitter. In her blog she writes about a variety of film related topics, from films noirs to classic film stars. She regularly includes reviews of classic film related books. Quelle is the one of the most wonderful people I know and you would do well to read her blog!
Quelle shares her birthday with some other cool people, among them Ricardo Montalbán, who is one of my favourite actors of all time.
She also shares her birthday with Noel Neill, the first actress to play Lois Lane in a live action film (the serial Superman)!
Quelle even shares her birthday with the original captain of the starship Enterprise! Jeffrey Hunter played Captain Christopher Pike in the pilot for the TV show Star Trek, "The Cage", shot about a year before William Shatner assumed the role of Captain Kirk!
It seems that a lot of cool people were born on November 25, and Quelle is among the coolest of them. Here's wishing Quelle a very happy birthday!
