    Starred in two of my favorite movies. The Birds and Time Machine.

    Rod Taylor, the rugged leading man best known for Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds and the sci-fi classic The Time Machine, has died at age 84. Taylor passed away Wednesday of natural causes, according to his daughter, former CNN correspondent Felicia Taylor.

    The Australian-born Taylor racked up more than 90 film and TV credits, ranging from the voice of Pongo the dog in Disney’s 1961 animated classic 101 Dalmatians to his final film role, as Winston Churchill in Quentin Tarantino’s 2009 Oscar winner, Inglourious Basterds. Taylor also shared screen time with John Wayne and Ann-Margret in The Train Robbers (1973) and appeared with Bette Davis, Ernest Borgnine, and Debbie Reynolds in The Catered Affair (1956).

    I was just thinking about Rod this weekend, Robin. In fact, I was just about to call him when Beth came downstairs to tell me.

    I heard you liked Weena. I always though that was just a nasty rumor.
