Today is everybody’s favorite amateur filmmaker Robbins Barstow’s 90th birthday, and in tribute, the governor of Connecticut (Robbins’s home state) has decreed this to be Dr. Robbins Barstow Day!

“Whereas, in tribute to his lifelong brilliance as an amateur filmmaker, ten of Dr. Barstow’s family chronicles have been registered by the Library of Congress, and his 1955 “Disneyland Dreams” [sic] (featuring a cameo by then-teen actor-comedian Steve Martin) has been named to the National Film Registry as one of the finest examples of the home movie-making genre.”
