When it comes to entertainers, "The Great One" was simply put, the greatest! Jackie Gleason would have been 100 years old this past Friday. The thing that most set him apart from the Hollywood of today? He knew the difference between memorizing lines from a script and actually acting. Lots of stars today do the research for roles and say they immerse themselves in the characters........but no one could ever come close to the Great One! I, for one, don't think they ever will. Gone from us now, but never forgotten....Happy Birthday Jackie! We Miss Ya!

.........Til Next Time!
