Happy Birthday George A Romero

Today marks the birthday of one of my idols who is none other than filmmaker George A. Romero.When I was young there were two directors whose names I first took notice whenever I saw them. It meant something and I started to grasp the concept of what a director was and did. The first was Steven Spielberg and the other was George Romero. And to say this man has been an influence on me is an understatement.

So I would like to wish George a very happy and wonderful birthday! Here is to so many more.

And just because I can here is the trailer to one of my all time favorite films (one of my top three in fact) George Romero's 'Dawn Of The Dead'.

Totally agree about George....
He's my favorite filmmaker, as well. How old is he now, anyway?

I can't recall off hand. I want to say like 71 or something.
