Happy Birthday, Barbara

Barbara Jean Morehead, better known as Barbara Eden, was born August 23, 1934 in Tucson, Arizona.

Miss Eden has played in and starred in beaucoup movies and has been seen frequently on TV and on the stage. But she will forever be best known as Jeannie in I Dream of Jeannie, a sitcom that had a five-year run.

Barbara Eden's career has spanned over half-century and she is still actively engaged in her art.

It is no accident that we choose to feature persons of note who were born in 1934, or those who have reached the seventy-five year milestone.

Jim-- Likewise. Thanks for the link. That was fun.

Chuck-- That she is.

I think she is still beautiful, but I wish she didn't have all that work done on her face. I wish more of the ladies of Hollywood would accept the changes and be more natural.

Lin-- I agree with you. Aging is going to happen. Go with it gracefully, I say. I do see, though, that someone who might feel that their "face" has been their fortune might go with the "work".
