    Speaking of Pearl Harbor (in which Woody Allen movie did Mia Farrow ask "Who's Pearl Harbor?"), Happy "Date Which Will Live in Infamy" Birthday to my brother Ken.

    It was also my late grandmother's birthday, though unlike Ken she was alive in 1941.

    ;)

  2. Is Mia in RADIO DAYS?

    Unlike Ken, I was alive in 1941.

  3. Lousy movie. Tora, Tora, Tora was a much better depiction of Pearl Harbor in spite of Edward Albert. I wasn't aware today was the 7th until I read Rick Robinson's blog a little while ago, but I'll never forget Pearl.

    Hey, I know a guy who's half Japanese and half Irish. Every December 7th he bombs Pearl Bailey. Badda-bing, badda-boom!

    Which came first RADIO DAYS "Who's Pearl Harbor" or BROADWAY DANNY ROSE "Who's this? [referencing a photo of Frank Sinatra]"

  5. I think the "Who's Pearl Harbor" joke pre-dates Woody Allen by a generation.

    I was thinking more of Mia's lines.
