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?

What, never heard of Mao Zedong and the Dongettes? A famous vaudeville act in their day.

"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!

Cannot believe that I only got 50% for Grant. He is one of my favorites; there's no way that I even hesitated to write his name.

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.)
