Happy Birthday, Efrem Zimbalist, Jr.!

Depending on which source you choose to believe, Efrem Zimbalist, Jr., is 89 or 90 years old today. I remember him best for 77 Sunset Strip, though some people will recall him as Dandy Jim Buckley on Maverick or from the later The F. B. I. A TV icon who's often overlooked these days, he deserves remembering.

Efrem Zimbalist Jr.'s half-sister was Marcia Davenport (_Valley of Decision_, etc.)

For that matter, I just saw a part of a minor movie with Stephanie Zimbalist in it late last night/early this morning, and I'd realized I hadn't seen her in years. Meanwhile, E. Jr. has also been visible for his evangelical Xian lecture/sermon programs in recent years.

He played a great Zimbal.
