I want to take a moment this morning to wish screenwriter and TV producer William Theodore Link the happiest of 77th birthdays. The co-creator (with his longtime writing partner, Richard Levinson) of such winning series as Columbo, Mannix, and Ellery Queen, and the author of this year’s delightful short-story work, The Columbo Collection, Link was born on this date in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, back in 1933.
I had the opportunity to speak with Link earlier this year, and posted the results of our length exchange in The Rap Sheet.
If you would like to wish Link a happy birthday today, just drop a message into the Comments section of this post. I’ll let him know to look there.
