   StormCnter  Can you name them? And the film? I'll post a clip from the movie after this is answered.

   MeiDei  Yul Brynner far left - & "The Magnificent Seven" (happy to know I can still count, even if wrong ) lol
2 hours ago .

   StormCnter  That's the title and yes, that's Yul Brynner. Enlarging the pic should give you a few more names.
About an hour ago .

   HopeandGlory  also starring . . . James Coburn, Steve McQueen, Horst Bucholtz, Eli Wallach, Charles Bronson and many more.

   StormCnter  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.

   MeiDei  The song "I Think I Love You" was sung in what movie by Jerry O'Connel?
Yesterday at 11:16 EST .

   MeiDei  What is the name of the ball used for the tie-breaker in "Blackball"?
Yesterday at 10:59 EST .

   StormCnter  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  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.
Yesterday at 08:47 EST .

   StormCnter  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?
   Yesterday at 05:39 EST .

   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.

   MeiDei  Not for the emotionally faint of heart, 'The Magdalene Sisters' is a pointed look at the lives of four Irish girls who were each raised in a strictly Roman Catholic manner. In what particular setting does the story unfold?
Yesterday at 19:43 EST .

   Gram77  I have a guess. Does this take place (or was this place real ) in Dublin. This rings a bell for me and I don't know why. Laundries also come to mind. Can't wait to see the entire answer.
Yesterday at 11:51 EST .

   MeiDei  It's been up long enough - Answer: An asylum
The four girls, Margaret, Rose, Bernadette and Crispina, have each been admitted to Magdalene Asylum, a place for 'fallen' young women. The film depicts the cruel treatment these young women are forced to endure, the friendships they are able to achieve and the means of their eventual departures from the asylum. This is a stark but important film document!
Yesterday at 14:59 EST .

   Gram77  I think the things I was remembering was from a movie Judi Dench was in several years ago. Can't remember that title either but do you know if that movie was based on that very difficult life these girls were forced to endure?
Yesterday at 15:25 EST .

   MeiDei  I don't know Gram, but you can read about the 'laundries' here:

   StormCnter  And one more young man who became a star on radio, television, stage and in film. I had to airbrush his autograph.
   Monday at 15:06 EST .

   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  The woman on the left is Louise Erickson. See if you can identify the young man, a name in television, film and radio.
   Monday at 15:01 EST .

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

   StormCnter  Yup. Richard Crenna. Nice spotting, Mei.
