KEITH ANDES (1920-2005)

birdman.jpgActor Keith Andes passed away November 11th. His obituaries play up the fact he was Marilyn Monroe’s leading man in one film – but neglect to mention his most immortal role: that as the original voice of Hanna-Barbera’s BIRDMAN.Andes also had signifigant guest parts on STAR TREK and THE RIFLEMAN – and was the co-star of GLYNIS (a short lived 1963 Glynis Johns TV show I watched when I was a kid), but I digress. My point is, Andes earned his wings. “BIIIirdRrdMaAnnnnnn!”
