   MeiDei  She looks like Jane Fonda, I'm stuck between Christopher Walken and Albert Finney for him - Walken might be too young - time to put the coffee pot on.

   StormCnter  Just because we haven't had a quiz about him in a while. Who is he?

   MeiDei  1941 cmedy
Bertram Potts, a young professor who along with six other professors are compiling an encyclopedia of human knowledge. Potts is researching American slang. Things are going good until their financial backer, Miss Totten pressures them to hurry up and finish. So Bertram hits the streets to do some solo research and meets saucy nightclub singer Sugarpuss O'Shea. O'Shea is at first reluctant to help Potts until she needs a place to hide out from the police who are looking to question her about her boyfriend, mob boss Joe Lilac.

   Richdet  "Ball of Fire" with Gary Cooper and Barbara Stanwyck.

   Richdet  I maybe should mention Clarence the Angel from "It's a Wonderful Life" is on the left (Henry Travers ), and Oscar Homolka is next to him. And the second professor to the right of Gary C is "Cuddles" Zakall (or Sakall ). The professors are basically the seven dwarves to Sugarpuss' Snow White. Gary is of course more the Prince Charming type.

   MeiDei  Very much a total yes! But - does that make Dana Andrews the wicked witch/warlock? ; ) The 7 professors were all cute in their own way.

   StormCnter  Today is his birthday.

He has played General George S. Patton in a 2008 movie. He spent two years at Julliard before leaping onto the stage in various Shakespearean roles on Broadway. His father was murdered in the Virgin Islands, his sister was murdered in Colorado Springs and he lost two half brothers in a shark/scuba accident. His larger fame is from his work on television and he is the first actor to receive three television Emmys for performing the same character in three different series. He has six children by three of his four wives.

Who is he?

   StormCnter  These women are different people, but share a connection:
This one lost her agent and husband to Doris Day.
This one attempted suicide.
This one's middle name was Sophie.
Got a guess as to their identity?

   StormCnter  More hints: The last two's ashes are buried in the same tomb. The first one's ashes are buried with a husband. None of the three had biological children. All three adopted one or more children.

   MeiDei  2003 Title/actors?
In Martha's Vineyard, Mass., conjoined twins Walt and Bob Tenor make the best of their handicap by being the fastest grill cooks in town. While outgoing Walt hopes to one day become a famous actor, shy Bob prefers to stay out of the spotlight. When a fading Hollywood actress, Cher, decides to get her show "Honey and the Beaze" cancelled, she hires Walt -- and his brotherly appendage -- as her costars. But their addition surprisingly achieves the opposite.

   MeiDei  1996 Comedy Title/Actors?

With Haney's goons trying to kill them, they set out across the country to try and clear their reputations. In the process, they see a side of America they never knew before.

   StormCnter  Who are they? It's too easy to name the movie, but what's the title?

   Gram77  Of course we are looking at the 3 Musketeers with Van Heflin, Kelly and (stuck there ). TCM hardly ever plays this any more but when it was still popular I never missed a chance to watch it. Lana Turner and June Allyson also were in this.

   StormCnter  Good morning, Gram. You're correct on the title and correct on the man at the right and at the center. Musketeer #3 has been touted here on the Wall as being the best-dressed man in Hollywood in his glory years.

   StormCnter  Gram and Rich win this sword fight. Lana Turner, June Allyson, Angela Lansbury and many other famous names were in this one. 1948's "The Three Musketeers".

   StormCnter  She was described in a 1963 magazine article as "the swingingest sexpot in show business." She attracted attention for her suggestive comments such as "Jayne Mansfield may turn boys into men, but I take them from there", and also commented that she was considered "too sexy in Italy" Famed more for her appearances in Italian movies, she lit up the domestic television screens with appearances on various talk shows, sometimes with her husband. Her last US film appearance was in "Twilight Zone: The Movie" in a minor role.

   StormCnter  I don't think so, Mei. I didn't see any reference to photography in my research. Are you thinking of Lollobrigida?

Good morning, my dear.

   MeiDei  Yes for Lolla - I didn't think it was her but thought the photographer angle would settle it - and it does! : ) She looks familiar - have had my coffee quota for today - who is she/should I make another pot - decisions, decisions - laughing here.

   Richdet  I am guessing Abbe Lane, as in Xavier Cugat's Abbe Lane? Not to be confused with the Beatles' Abbey Road.

   StormCnter  Yup. Rich recognizes a beauty when he sees her. She is Abbe Lane.

   StormCnter  This was a fun movie, but the book was better, in my opinion. Can you name the title and this actor?

   Gram77  He sort of looks like Michael Douglas but I haven't the faintest for the movie.
