Everyone Loves: Tuesday Weld – Happy Birthday

Tuesday Weld (born Susan Ker Weld, August 27, 1943). The name’s probably familiar, but where have you seen the beautiful Tuesday Weld? Well, she made a big splash in early 50’s TV with The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis,  and the 1956 film Return to Peyton Place. You may remember her from her Academy Award nominted performance in 1977’s Looking for Mr. Goodbar, opposite Diane Keaton. Or Sergio Leone’s One Upon A Time in America with Robert De Niro and James Woods, or perhaps The Cincinnati Kid w/ Steve McQueen, Wild in the Country w/ Elvis Presley or the 1966 cult favorite Lord Love a Duck. In the 60’s she famously passed on a few films that went on to to be blockbusters, notably, Bonnie & Clyde, Rosemarry’s Baby, True Grit & Bob and Carol, Ted and Alice.  Ask your dad, he knows exactly who Tuesday Weld is! Tuesday pretty much quit acting in the 1990’s and her last performance was in 2001. Hopefully she’s somewhere nice celebrating her 69th birthday.
