Rabbit of Seville

Continuing from my previous post, that we now have "barber" and "beard" entering the equation, I'm reminded of the Warner Bros. Rabbit of Seville:
Directed byCharles M. Jones
Produced byEdward Selzer
Story byMichael Maltese

Note from the wiki pages of the two mentioned:
  • Edward "Eddie" Selzer (January 12, 1893 – February 22, 1970)  
  • "Chuck" Jones (September 21, 1912 – February 22, 2002)
  • Michael "MikeMaltese (February 6, 1908 – February 22, 1981) 
Of course I already knew what I would find there... it's in the header of this blog. What you may not know though, is that my first grandson was born on February 22, he's 3years old now, and when he turns 8, it will be 2/22/22.

 Maltese's birthday has new meaning now... given this excerpt from yesterdays post,  Farmer Would:
  • Mike Farrell, Jr. (born February 6, 1939) 
The "February 6(x2)" pattern cluster is a prompt for us to investigate further.  From here we venture to the February 6 wiki page, and then using the Formula as per usual, we arrive at:
  • Donald Allan "DonDunstan (21 September 1926 – 6 February 1999) 
Dunstan and Jones share the same birthday.  And so now to investigate Sept 21... and cutting to the chase we arrive at:
  • Robert Lull Forward (August 15, 1932 – September 21, 2002) 
One of the Rabbit of Seville animators stands out:
His birthday is only 4 days away, a cue to investigate perhaps... cutting to the chase:
  • Colonel Maung Maung Kha BC 4066 (7 June 1920 – 30 April 1995) 
  • Darrell Antony Sweet (16 May 1947 – 30 April 1999)
  • Poul Hartling (14 August 1914 – 30 April 2000) 
We now have an "August 14, 15, __/ Date Sequence" pattern cluster:
  • Dorothy West (June 2, 1907 – August 16, 1998)  
Her birthday stands out... note this excerpt once again from my "Farmer Would" pattern-cluster:
And of course we have the operal "Barber of Seville":
Premiere20 February 1816
And so we now have a "February 20,__, 22(x4)/ Date Sequence" pattern-cluster.   ... and cutting to the chase:

  • Gertrude Belle Elion (January 23, 1918 – February 21, 1999)
  • Wilmer David "Vinegar Bend" Mizell (August 13, 1930 – February 21, 1999)
  • Eino Ilmari "Illu" Juutilainen (21 February 1914 – 21 February 1999)
January 23 is also the birthday of my second grandson who is just over 3 months old.  And perhaps you noticed the "August 13, 14, 15/Date Sequence" pattern-cluster.
