   StormCnter posted on Suggested Reading  I have commented before that I am usually skeptical about new books written by really prolific authors, thinking no writer has that many good books in him or her. Stephen King and Larry McMurtry occasionally turn out a gem, but beware. My exception is C.J. Box. I always pick up his books as they come out and I am never disappointed, although some are more memorable than others. His Joe Pickett series is very entertaining (Pickett is a Wyoming Game Warden ), but Box has written stand-alone fiction, too. I particularly remember "Three Weeks to Say Goodbye" about an adoptive couple who get a devastating phone call from the adoption agency nine months after they brought their baby home. It's a nail-biter and a Kleenex shredder. Check out C. J. Box's books.

   Gram77  Interesting. Whenever I am either at the book store or the library, I admit that I walk by this author. Thanks to you I believe this author bears checking into. Thanks!

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  His birthname was László Löwenstein. As a young man, he was a student of the famous psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud. He was only 5'3". He was a favorite characterization for the famed Warner Bros. cartoonists, as he tangled several times with Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck. He was also portrayed as a fish in a Dr. Seuss Warner Bros. cartoon. He was the very first James Bond villain. About 1977, his daughter Catharine was almost abducted in Los Angeles by the serial killers known as the Hillside Stranglers. She was stopped by Kenneth Bianchi and Angelo Buono, who were impersonating policemen. When they realized she was his daughter, they let her go because the actor was famous for playing a serial killer in a popular film. Who was he?

   MeiDei  WAG - The only one I can think of that was short, played the bad guy effectively & probably born elsewhere is Peter Lorre - he scared me as a kid ... everything else about him is new to me.

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  He received the first ever Grammy for a rap song. He enjoys playing chess. He speaks fluent Spanish. He incorporates a three-word catchphrase in each of his movies. He gained a place in the Guinness World Records book for most public appearances in 12 hours doing red carpet premieres for a 2005 film. He has been 6'2" since he was thirteen years old. He was a millionaire before his 20th birthday. He is often called "Mr. July" by showbiz media because so many of his films open in July. Many of his hit films have featured actors from the Star Trek franchise.

Who is he?

   Mike PHX  It's either Kim Jong Il (deceased ) or the Dos Equis Guy.

   MeiDei  Out on a limb here - Quentin Taratino??
14 hours ago .


   StormCnter  I think 23 hours is enough. He is Will Smith. Smith has been nominated for five Golden Globe Awards and two Academy Awards, and has won four Grammy Awards and has been ranked as the most bankable star worldwide by Forbes.
But for all we know the Dos Equis guy has done more and better.

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  We all get older and begin losing our figures. Can you name the actor in this recent photo?
   Yesterday at 05:42 EST .



   GO3  Looks like a Rugby ball, so I'll say Russell Crowe.
Yesterday at 08:31 EST .


   StormCnter  You say just right, GO3. The NY Post article was focused on Crowe's expanded mid-section but also suggested he might be beefing up for a role.

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  Gene Tierney was offered and turned down the title role in this 1947 film. She said the story was "tacky". Peggy Cummins landed the lead and filming had begun when she was fired and the part was recast. Vincent Price was the male lead as the movie began filming, but was released when Cummins was fired. Can you name the movie (based on a huge best-selling book ) and these lucky actors who ended up in the leads?

   HopeandGlory  "Forever Amber"?
Yesterday at 06:19 EST .


   StormCnter  Yes, Hope. You're up early and up to speed. Do you know the actors?
Yesterday at 06:43 EST .


   MeiDei  Would he be George Saunders?
Yesterday at 07:01 EST .


   StormCnter  He is George Saunders, Mei. As King Charles. Does anyone know the lady?
Yesterday at 08:55 EST .


   StormCnter  Richard Greene replaced Vincent Price.
Yesterday at 08:57 EST .


   HopeandGlory  Linda Darnell?
Yesterday at 09:00 EST .


   StormCnter  Yes, Linda Darnell. Lovely lady, tragic end.

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  And one more young man who became a star on radio, television, stage and in film. I had to airbrush his autograph.

   MeiDei  uncle milty?
Yesterday at 18:55 EST .


   StormCnter  When I saw this picture, my first thought was Jerry Lewis, but you are right, he is Milton Berle.
Yesterday at 05:29 EST .




   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  The woman on the left is Louise Erickson. See if you can identify the young man, a name in television, film and radio.

   MeiDei  Dick Crenna ??
Yesterday at 00:22 EST .


   StormCnter  Yup. Richard Crenna. Nice spotting, Mei.

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  Do you recognize him? I didn't.
   Monday at 11:35 EST .



   Gram77  Good grief, is this Sal Mineo?
Monday at 11:54 EST .


   StormCnter  Actually, Gram, it is Sal Mineo. Has to be from a film, but I don't know which one. Good eye, my friend!
Monday at 12:51 EST .


   MeiDei  Freddie Prinze?
Monday at 13:00 EST .


   StormCnter  No, he really is Sal Mineo.
Monday at 14:56 EST .


   MeiDei  caught cross typing, then called away, strange day....

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  Scene from what film? Who are these actors?
   Monday at 11:33 EST .



   Gram77  She is Julie something (a guess ). He is James Dean and maybe the movie is East of Eden.
Monday at 11:59 EST .


   StormCnter  Gram, I thought I answered this, but my response disappeared. You are right on the film and the ones you named. The man at the left is Richard Davalos, the girl is Julie Harris. Well done.
