Happy Birthday to David Wayne!

Post by Catfan » Wed Jan 30, 2013 11:05 am

Wayne James McMeekan, better known as David Wayne, was born 99 years ago today in Traverse City, Michigan. A World War II veteran, he began his movie career in 1948, and was already a seasoned veteran when he secured the role of Jervis Tetch, the Mad Hatter, in late 1965. His acting career continued until his wife passed away in 1993, at which time he retired. He passed away on 9 February 1995, but remains a very remembered performer because of his many roles, including this one. All the best, Mr. Wayne!!

I always like The Mad Hatter. His hypnotic hat always scared me. Too bad he didn't appear more often.
