Happy Birthday Fredric March!

Ernest Frederick Mcintyre Bickel
August 31st, 1897

In honor of this special day and because he is my all time favorite classic actor, I have decided to dedicate the entire month of September to the most distinguished and versatile American actor that has ever graced the stage or screen. In the process of picking through his past, and reviewing quite a few (but not all, he is an actor to be savored) of his movies, I hope to discover and put into words how and why I consider this man such a wonderful asset to classic film.
