1922: Comedian, actor and director Carl Reiner is born in The Bronx, N.Y. Reiner got his start on Broadway and formed a comedy duo with Mel Brooks. He developed the sitcom that would become "The Dick Van Dyke Show," writing many episodes and appearing occasionally as temperamental talk show host Alan Brady. He acted in movies such as "The Russians Are Coming, The Russians Are Coming," "Where's Poppa?," "Oh, God!" and "The Jerk," the last three which he also directed. He's also directed movies like "The Man with Two Brains," "All of Me," "Summer Rental," "Summer School" and "Bert Rigby, You're a Fool." He's seen here (right) with his son, fellow actor and director Rob Reiner.
