She looks like Joe Kennedy's old squeeze--Miss Gloria Swanson

Yes indeed, it's Hitch.  Some people really don't change much.  OK, shutoo, you get to post the next one.

Yes, Lav, It's Ellen Degeneres.  She showed some old photos of herself on her talk show once.  It's funny to see hair styles change through the years.

Yes, they're all Ellen.

 

Now, I hesitate to post a lot of baby pictures because peoples features change so much over the years, but this next baby did not change much, at least not in my opinion.

Miles, I'd bet money on that face belonging to Ellen Degeneres

Well, Princess, you got Chastity Bono.  The first little girl has nothing to do with Barbra Streisand, but she is a funny lady.  She once starred in a TV sitcom, then later became the host of a talk show.

Do you know who this little girl is?

6a4a086ed0e0ec4a560b902aa84a3116.jpg
She grew up to become a very funny lady.

She did not grow up to become a very funny lady.

Both of these little girls did some acting as adults, but that's not primarily what they are known for. Can you name them?

I hate to do questions in half--but I just have to say I know very well the bottom little girl is Chastity Bono.

However, she's not a little girl anymore; she's a man named Chas.

In relationship to the top little girl, I can honestly say she's not Barbra Streisand. There's only one Funny Girl and one Funny Lady and her name is Barbra.

Could it be Lizabeth Scott?

 

Yes, that's correct.  Good job, Miles.  Your turn.

Out of the Past's Jane Greer?

 

No, but that was a good guess.  Here's another hint -- This actress was known for her distinctive husky voice.  (Bonus hint -- We've usually seen her with much thicker eyebrows.)

Yes, it's Glenn Close.  That's her high school picture.  Nice going, Azure.  You're up next.

This young lady would be Oscar nominated on several occasions.

Yes, Princess.  After more than twenty years as a stage actress, Ruth Gordon made a few movies in the early 1940's.  She and her husband, Garson Kanin, wrote some screenplays for their friends, Spencer Tracy and Katherine Hepburn.  After a twenty year absence from films, Ruth made a comeback in "Inside Daisy Clover", playing the mother of Natalie Wood.  "Rosemary's Baby" and "Harold And Maude" followed a few years later.

 

She did a play with a young Humphrey Bogart in 1927 called "Saturday's Children".  In 1943, they worked together in the movie "Action In The North Atlantic".

"Saturday's Children"  How young they both look!

 

Here she is with her husband and friends Spencer Tracy and Katherine Hepburn.

Good work, Princess.  I'll be back later with a new photo.

Here's a hint: She wrote an autobiographical play that was turned into a movie. Jean Simmons played her in the movie.


This hint gives it away - - but I couldn't recognize her face at first because she didn't make many movies when she was young.

Jean Simmons played the actress in the movie The Actress, which was the story of Ruth Gordon. The film starred Spencer Tracy.
