Happy Birthday, Burt Lancaster!

(November 2, 1913 October 20, 1994)
Genius is a pretty dangerous thing to have. Genius is too erratic. It's better just to be talented.

Watch this hilarious sketch Burt did with Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis for an episode of The Colgate Comedy Hour in 1953. I wish Hollywood had starred him in more comedies. He was a terrific comedian.

I also highly recommend this great number he performed with Kirk Douglas at the 30th Academy Awards in 1958. Who knew he could sing and dance too!

Fun fact: it's my birthday today too. :)
