   StormCnter  Yes and yes. The woman? BTW, the man on the left isn't identified in the photo, so I have no idea of his name.

   GO3  The other chief is Eva Marie Saint, and looks like location shooting for NBNW.

   StormCnter  GO3 gets the remaining name and also the film. You and Tulsa win an eagle feather.

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  Can you name all four of these people?
   Yesterday at 13:07 EST .

   Gram77  I can give you 3. Left is Heston, next to him Garland, next to her I know but my memory is wandering around somewhere and on the right is Brando. I rather odd group.
Yesterday at 13:45 EST .

   MeiDei  The mystery gal looks like Eartha Kitt to me .... ; )
Yesterday at 14:00 EST .

   StormCnter  Yes, on all four. Who knows what the situation was. Garland appears to be fussing at someone behind Kitt.

   Richdet  The picture was taken in August 1963, when all four celebrities were involved in lending their names to "planning" the civil rights march on Washington at the end of that month. To the surprise probably of no one, Judy didn't actually turn up at the march, once again hospitalized for some variation on what was usually called "exhaustion" back then.

Within a few years Judy's funeral would render her the patron saint of the Stonewall riots. Brando would become an activist in Native American causes, and make a mockery of himself and his cause via Sacheen Littlefeather. Kitt would be barred from the White House for insulting Ladybird Johnson, with her career in the dumpster for some years afterward. And civil rights marcher Heston would become a Republican, and forever after a punching bag for the Hollywood Left and the media.

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  He left college to serve as a cook with the Merchant Marines. He was a CPA and had been an efficiency expert with the Budget Bureau of the state of Connecticut. He applied at the CIA, but was rejected. He has inspired at least two Hanna-Barbera cartoon characters and one character in Tom & Jerry. He was the first actor to receive both an Emmy and an Oscar nomination in the same year. The following year, it happened again. He said of his long-running, very popular character in a television series: "Being chased by (....... ) is like being nibbled to death by a duck."
Who is he?
Yesterday at 13:04 EST .

   StormCnter  Ok, another hint. The iconic garment from his television series was rumored to be in the Smithsonian, but the actor debunked the story saying it is hanging in his upstairs closet.

   Mike PHX  I'm ashamed at the amount of hints and I have no clue. This is a wall of experts at this kind of stuff!
3 hours ago .

   StormCnter  Aw Mike, this one is easier than you think. Ok, another hint, a quote from the subject actor: "I remember once in high school the umpire called me out at third base when I was sure I was safe. I got so mad I took out my glass eye, handed it to him and said, 'Try this.' I got such a laugh you wouldn't believe."

   Mike PHX  Long shot...Alan Freed?
I'm thinking Fred Flinstone.
About an hour ago .

   StormCnter  A long shot, indeed. I don't think Alan Freed was ever in the movies. Are you toying with us, Mike? I suspect you know the answer.[wink]
About an hour ago .

   Mike PHX  Was he in the original The Postman Always Rings Thrice? And Then Once More?
29 minutes ago .

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  Do you recognize this cast from what title? Hint: The title was inspired by a Claude Rains line in "Casablanca".

   Calvinesq  The Usual Suspects.

Kevin Spacey on the right end?
Yesterday at 09:49 EST .

   MeiDei  I would have guessed him to be Donny Wahlburg; Benito Del Toro center? Didn't see this movie.
Yesterday at 10:47 EST .

   Gram77  This picture isn't real clear but I think the center might be Stephen Baldwin. Gabriel Byrne was in it too but I can't tell which one is him in the picture.
Yesterday at 11:25 EST .

   MeiDei  I thought Baldwin too but as the fellow immediate left of center - Byrne, might be fellow with his hand up hiding his face.
Yesterday at 11:53 EST .

   StormCnter  Calvin names the film, Mei and Gram are identifying a couple of the usual suspects. According to the ID on the photo, here are the names in order, L. to R: Gabriel Byrne, Benecio del Toro, Chazz Palminteri, Kevin Pollack, Peter Postelthwaite, Kevin Spacey.
Yesterday at 12:51 EST .

   MeiDei  The ID on photo may be suspect - 6 names vs. 5 guys and Benicio DelToro is 6'2" in real life ... the names are probably not in order or one guy is missing from photo ... but what do I know?
23 hours ago .

   StormCnter  I'll go look again. I wasn't able to copy and paste, so I did it by switching back and forth. There are a zillion photos and drawings of the lineup, but I found only one with the names. I cannot find that particular photo again. But, apparently Postelthwaite doesn't belong. As for the rest, I haven't a clue except for Spacey.

   Tulsa  See if this helps:

I searched 'Usual Suspects line up list names?'
20 hours ago .

   StormCnter  I did that too, Tulsa, but none of them seem to match up.
20 hours ago .

   MeiDei  Found one photo w/3 identifiable: center to right -
Benecio DelToro, Gabriel Byrne & Kevin Spacey - no clue on the two left of center.

Yesterday at 18:12 EST .

   Safetydude  Martin Balsam.
I think his best two parts were 'COL Cathcart' in "Catch-22" and 'Juror #1' in "12 Angry Men".

   StormCnter  Sorry, Gram. I couldn't find a profile this time. Safetydude names him. The photo is from "Little Big Man". I didn't see that film, but I read the book.

   StormCnter  Not the Bennetts and (smile ) not the Liberaces.
Yesterday at 05:50 EST .

   Gram77  Oh boy, what would we do without Mike? : )
Yesterday at 07:46 EST .

   Gram77  Pretty sure this is not right but maybe the Gumm sisters?
Yesterday at 11:26 EST .

   StormCnter  No, not the Gumm sisters. It's been almost 24 hours, so the answer is Louise and June Hovick, later known as Gypsy Rose Lee and June Havoc. The photo is from one of their vaudeville acts.
Yesterday at 12:55 EST .

   Tulsa  I looked up this one, which led to a enjoyable morning. The lyrics to 'Zip' from Pal Joey and performances of same by different women (on youtube. ) I read both interesting trivia about them and sordid details about the Navoc girls' mother.
