Famous movie producer gives birthday surprise

By Brooke Kelley - bio | email

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - One man received a very special surprise for his birthday. Ninety-year-old Capt. Nicholas Craig spent his day with famous movie producer and ice cream extradinaire Stratton Leopold. Leopold delivered ice cream to Craig Friday afternoon. Craig's daughters asked Leopold if he would make the special delivery for their father and Leopold said he was delighted to help out.

"We got so excited and so honored to do this and as you can see he's a wonderful man with quite a history and we are honored to be apart of it and bring ice cream to him," said Leopold.

"It was just a great surprise you see half of Savannah is here," said Craig.

Capt. Craig was at one time the youngest Captain in the world and was the captain of his own Liberty ship during World War II. So what's the captain's secret to staying young? He says he loves the golf course. In fact, Leopold suggested they go out and play a round sometime soon.
