September 4: Happy Birthday, Dick York

Dick York, the tall, willowy actor who played Darrin on "Bewitched," was born today in 1928. 

To look at the extensive, prolific TV career of York, take this quiz. Which of these TV series did York not appear in: "The Twilight Zone," "Dr. Kildare," "The Virginian," "Wagon Train." You're absolutely correct if you said he appeared in all of them. He also played occasional roles in "Rawhide," "The Flintstones (himself)," and "Simon & Simon."

Dick York was born at the right time to catch the tail end of radio's comet, and appeared in series such as The Cavalcade of America, Tales of Tomorrow, and Meet the Meeks.

York is widely quoted as saying that Lux Radio Theater inspired him to puke, but it's unclear what he meant by this.
