We want to extend our warmest wishes to Lola Albright. The Ohio-born model turned actress--best known for her co-starring role as nightclub entertainer (later restaurateur) Edie Hart on the TV series Peter Gunn (1958-1961)--today celebrates her 88th birthday. It’s only too bad that Craig Stevens, who appeared with her as private eye Gunn, isn’t around to help her blow out candles. He passed away in 2000 at age 81.
Let’s not forget, either, that today marks the 75th birthday of onetime Avengers co-star Diana Rigg. Since we presented a good-size post about Rigg on the occasion of her 70th birthday, back in 2008, there’s probably no need to repeat that. We’ll settle, instead, for drinking a champagne toast in her honor later this evening.
