Classic Movie Coincidence: John Carradine, Tim Holt and Red Buttons

 

John Carradine, Tim Holt and Red Buttons share a birthday and a film (well, sort of):

John Carradine and Tim Holt both starred in the John Ford classic, Stagecoach (1939) — and both Carradine and Holt were born today February 5 (13 years apart!).  Red Buttons appeared in the 1966 remake of the film (also called Stagecoach) — and Buttons shares the same exact birthdate (Feb 5, 1919) with Tim Holt who starred in the original 1939 film.

Stagecoach 1933 and 1966 films

John Carradine was born  Richmond Reed Carradine on February 5, 1906 in New York City.  Tim Holt was born Charles John Holt III on February 5, 1919 in Beverly Hills, CA. Red Buttons was born Aaron Chwatt on February 5, 1919 in New York City.

  1. As if we needed an excuse to watch “Stagecoach”!

  2. I found another birthday coincidence. John Carradine is featured in 1958s “The Proud Rebel” with today’s birthday boy David Ladd.
