Yes, sharing a birthday today with the likes of Richard Nixon, Jimmy Page and--Muggsy Bogues--is the great Bob Denver. Oh, you semi-younguns might know him as Gilligan, but for us true geezers, he's more Maynard G. Krebs--his first big role as the beatniky friend of Dobie Gillis. It was my favorite comedy show back then, and even featured roles for young Tuesday Weld and Warren Beatty. A clip, with Dizzy Gillespie reference, though without Maynard's usual bongos. His favorite exclamation was always: "WORK?????" And he may (as Loudon Wainwright suggested in a song) been the godfather for later generations' over-use of the word "like."
