I've always loved Cary Grant movies. I'm thinking that photo came from Charade...nope, just looked it up, it's North by Northwest. His suit was a little darker in Charade.

I actually ended up shouting "North by Northwest!" at my screen because I knew just who it was and I couldn't summon the name for some reason. I cycled through all the old names...Stewart, Cooper, Cagney, Tracy, even though I knew they were wrong. Cary Grant. Gah.

A weird mob of celebrities. Imagine Dwight Eisenhower, Supreme Commander of the Allied Expeditionary Forces in Europe WW2, President of USA for 8 years and now stuck in with a mob of actors and singers from showbiz except for a man who hits rubber balls about a field and the founder of Communism in China, who could easily link arms with Hitler and Stalin. Is this where the future lies?

"The Hokey Pokey" is a translation of "The Great Leap Forward," originally written to illustrate the principles of dialectical materialism. That is, in fact, what it's all about.

Other than a beauty mark that is further towards the ear, it's remarkable how much Zsa Zsa Gabor looked like Kim Novak.

I guessed one of the ones I didn't recognise might well be Lawrence Welk, whose name I only know through Richard Pryor. Unfortunately, I assumed it was spelt Whelk!

Easiest one of these for me, I zipped right through it. (It helped to be born in the 50s and only get one TV channel. It played movies late at night.)

Sad to see Jackie Gleason so low. the Honeymooners was a wonderful show that still holds up today. I used to watch reruns in the 1980s and thought it was as good or better that some of the great TV comedies of the 1980s .

Now HE was Funny and witty and smart and entertaining. I met him when I was three. He was doing a movie with Art Carney and I walked uo to him because my mom watched the Honeymooners. He was SO nice to me and actually, I did not like him. His character scared me when he screamed. But as an adult I find him so lovable and in person he was WONDERFUL with kids! Art Carney on the other-hand was such a disappointment i thought he would be like funny Norton and he did not know how to interact with a child. I think he was gay becasue he never married and he was just so weird. I cried telling my mom I did not like Norton and I loved Jackie<3 To this day Jackie Gleason is my favorite entertainer ever. If he were thin he would have been so handsome-that black Irish beauty. I started watching with my mom and loving him and knowing he was just kidding and a big lovable bear. As Alice said in real life he was so lovable. ONly ugly Trixie Joyce Randolph said nasty things about him And

I think they shouldhave kept the original Trixe she was SO pretty and had a commanding presence but I think she fell ill. She was way better than Randolph and to speak ill of the dead is so gauche. Joyce Randolph looked like a man in drag really ugly horseface.

OMG no offense to any Scandinavian Americans but that show "Lawrence Welk" was retarded. My grandmother watched reruns of when I was little and I was so bored. She was so smart and so was my grandfather but he left the room he couldn't stand it either. It was pathetic no humour just inane. I guess he was from the Pacific Northwest or Minnesota. lol!
