Birthday Odd Couple

To me, the most surprising thing about today's birthday couple is that they are only one year apart - and Betty's the younger.

That Most Unlikely of Heterosexuals, Tony Randall isn't necessarily the first star (or even among the first five hundred) I think of shirtless, but he appears to carry it off gracefully enough.

And here we have a characteristically demure shot of Miss Betty Hutton, as the world's first Hindu deity in a prom gown. What do you suppose they were taking that day in the portrait gallery?

Sadly, neither are still with us at what would have been 89 and 88; just another symptom of all that's wrong with this low world...

  1. Wasn't this taken during the filming of The Miracle of Mumbai's Creek?

    Or maybe it was Anila Get Your Gun...
