Frank Morgan was born Francis Phillip Wuppermann on June 1, 1890, in New York, New York.
Turner Classic Movies is running a marathon of nine movies featuring Frank Morgan on Monday, June 1 between 6:30 am and 6:00 pm Eastern time. The schedule:
6:30 am - A Lost Lady (1934); 7:45 am - Success at Any Price (1934); 9:15 am - By Your Leave (1935); 10:45 am - The Perfect Gentleman (1935); 12:00 pm - Piccadilly Jim (1936); 1:45 pm - Trouble for Two (1936); 3:15 pm - Saratoga (1937); 5:00 pm - Balalaika (1939); 6:45 pm - Henry Goes Arizona (1939).
No, they're not playing Morgan's biggest title, though I found a nice ad that gives him prominent mention and a neat illustration will also follow in the Classic Movie Daily feed (or you can just click here).

Morgan's passing in 1949 became a week-long event in the papers as he was the first of a rather celebrated group falling under the "Death in Threes" superstition. After Morgan's death on September 18, Richard Dix followed on the 20th, and director Sam Wood on the 22nd.
