Jerry Orbach would have celebrated his 73rd birthday today. I sure liked him. Not only was he terrific on "Law and Order" (not his first series incidentally), but he was a Broadway musical star, performing in "Annie Get Your Gun" with Ethel Merman as well as in many other productions. He had a natural grace and elegance.
Picture on the left is from "Promises, Promises" and was taken off a good fan site...click the image to be transported.
He was a great looking man in his 60's, but look at that old picture--kind of a blend of Sean Connery and Joe Dimagio, wasn't he?
