Burt Lancaster was born in New York on this day in 1913. He died in 1994.
During his career, he worked on a bunch of movies, from “The Kentuckian”, to “Seven days in May” to “From here to eternity” to playing Wyatt Earp in “Gunfight at the OK corral” to his great role as Moonlight Graham in “Fields of dreams”.
It’s amazing how his movies dealt with such a variety of subjects, from the frontier days, to fears of a military takeover of the US government, to the most famous shootout of the Old West to a movie about a man who built a baseball field in Iowa.
Let’s just say that he left a wonderful legacy of movies.
