Celebrity Birthday of the Day – September 13

Today would have been the 94th birthday of Roald Dahl, had he not died almost 20 years ago. This author is responsible for some of the best children’s books of all time. Movies based on his books include: Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (the script of which he also wrote), The Witches (of which there is a remake currently in the works), Matilda, and Fantastic Mr. Fox. He also helped with writing the script for Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and a few of his stories can been seen on “Alfred Hitchcock Presents”. His work has gone, and will continue to go, down in history. I, for one, am totally psyched for The Witches remake!
