As Good as James L. Brooks Gets

James L. BrooksOn this day back in 1800, abolitionist John Brown was born. And Mike Wallace was born in 1918.

Wastership Down author Richard Adams is 93 today. Two of my favorite actors Albert Finney and Glenda Jackson are 77. Candice Bergen is 67. And Billy Joel (meh) is 64.

But the day belongs to the great writer/director (and more) James L. Brooks who is 73 today. He got his start as a TV writer, eventually creating The Mary Tyler Moore Show. But I most know him from films like Terms of Endearment, Broadcast News, and As Good as it Gets. He was also a major force behind The Simpsons.

Happy birthday James L. Brooks!

Afterword

I have a busy day today so there won’t be any more posts until much later.
