Born Today in 1944: Timothy Dalton

One of our favorite actors, here at the The Cinemologists, celebrates his birthday today.  Timothy Dalton is a Shakespearean actor who's been in every kind of film from The Lion in Winter (1968) to Hot Fuzz (2007).  I consider him one of the best actors to ever play James Bond, in The Living Daylights (1987) and License to Kill (1989), who brought a rougher edge to the character without losing what I love about Bond.  He's played villains, such as in The Rocketeer (1991), and swashbuckling types like Prince Barin from the irresistible Flash Gordon (1981).  Happy Birthday Timothy Dalton!

Speaking of Flash, here's a great scene from that film with Dalton and the lovely Ornella Muti.
