Birthday boy Raymond Burr, co-star Barbara Hale and his lifelong partner
Robert Benevides

In the mid-1950s, Burr met Robert Benevides (born 1929), a young actor and Korean War veteran, on the set of Perry Mason. According to Benevides, they became a couple around 1960. Benevides gave up acting in 1963 and later became a production consultant for 21 of the Perry Mason TV movies. Together they owned and operated an orchid business and then a vineyard, in the Dry Creek Valley. They were partners until Burr's death in 1993.

Birthday boy Laurence Olivier with his two children Richard and Tamsin (mom is Joan Plowright)

In the book "Melting the Stone: A Journey Around My Father" by his son Richard Olivier, Richard describes Laurence as being more interested in his work than in his children; he never looked back fondly on his career and would actually become depressed when he didn't have a job.

Bogie had the same insecurity when it came to his career, Joe. When no offers were forthcoming through agent Swifty Lazar, Bogie would sit in his usual booth at Romanoff's and actually lament: "Well, I guess no one wants me."
