Happy Birthday to Teri Garr, 69.
The pic on the left is when she was in an episode of the original Star Trek television series. She costarred with Robert Lansing in the episode Assignment: Earth, which was supposed to produce a spin off series employing both her and Lansing. Unfortunately it did not sell. She also proved her comic chops in the Mel Brooks black and white comedy Young Frankenstein, where she was quite enticing to a teenager - hawt comes to mind!
Truly impressive pair of assets!
In 2002, she revealed that she was suffering from multiple sclerosis and has become a major advocate for related causes.
I'd have to say that what cemented my thinking she was pretty special was her noted appearances on The Late Show with David Letterman. Her banter with Letterman was something to see - truly a lot of fun.
At any rate, I wish her nothing but the best. Happy Birthday, ma'am.
