Celebrity Birthday of the Day – October 25

Billy Barty was an American actor, and if you were a child of the 80’s, I guarantee you knew this guy, because he had parts in some of the best movies for young audiences from that decade. Just check out these titles: Legend, UHF, Willow, Masters of the Universe…okay, Masters of the Universe was pretty bad. But still! Barty worked hard to further public acceptance of dwarfs, and always held some distain for Herve Villechaize for referring to little people as “midgets”. Barty founded the Little People of America to help with his activism. He died in 2000 at the age of 76. Which finger holds the power of the universe?
