On February 6th…

February 6, 1922: Patrick Macnee was born Daniel Patrick Macnee in London, England.

He played Sherlock Holmes twice and Dr John Watson three times. You can have fun looking up where and when in film books, or I recommend A Curious Collection of Dates, a book by two JHWS members, Leah Guinn (“Amber”) and Jaime Mahoney (“Tressa”).

February 6, 1943: Gayle Hunnicutt was born in Fort Worth, Texas.

She played one role in the Jeremy Brett Sherlock Holmes series: that of Irene Adler, the woman. Her performance is something to watch again and again for how well she became the role.
