Happy Birthday, Gene Hackman! (Who Is Totally Not Dead)

Two-time Oscar winner Gene Hackman as Popeye Doyle in a scene from “The French Connection” (see below for his Oscar acceptance speech).

Two-time Oscar winner Gene Hackman turns 85 today, contrary to recent internet rumors that he had passed away (that were due to a poorly-worded headline, since amended, but check the URL). The retired actor, who won Oscars for his performance in “The French Connection” (1971) and “Unforgiven” (1992), has become a novelist.

What’s your favorite Gene Hackman movie (and if you say “Superman IV: The Quest For Peace,” you will likely be put on a government list)? Tell us in the Comments section, below.

Also, if you want to check out a wicked Oscar party, the Cape Ann Cinema & Stage has a great one, at which you can totally win a private movie party for you and up to 99 friends!
