    I thought you might get it, Starlit. Here is a colorized clip: Good job, Star. You're next.

    Yes, Sid Silvers is indeed the sailor next to Una Merkel in Photo #4. Besides being an actor, he was also a writer who contributed to the screenplay for quite a few movies, including three of MGM's "Broadway Melody" series. "Every Night At Eight" introduced the song "I'm In The Mood For Love", which became a signature tune for Frances Langford. The guy on the left in photo #7 is Charles Igor Gorin, who was an opera singer who appeared in several musical numbers in "Broadway Melody Of 1938". Bringing in an opera singer, or a classically trained dancer, was a common practice in musical films of that era. That was the case with the young lady in the lower right of photo #10. She was a young opera singer who only appeared in two movies. #5 is from a movie that Frances Langford was in, but she's not in the photo. #10 contains several actresses who had famous husbands. One of those husbands is also in the photo. You folks really know your old musicals, but we haven't had any guesses for #5 or #10 yet.

    Almost, Lavender. The guy on the end next to Una Merkel is not Bing Crosby. The others are all correct. Gee, Frances Langford was in the first four photos. I wonder if she's in any others. Any more guesses?

    Retro Trivia

    You are correct, Lavender. They played brothers in those five films. Dorothy McGuire played their mother in "Old Yeller" and "Swiss Family Robinson". Fred MacMurray played their father in "The Shaggy Dog" and "Bon Voyage". Nice work. Lavender. You're up again.

    Can you name everyone in these photos? Photos 1, 2, and 3 are not from movies, but are of stars about to make a radio broadcast. Photos 4 through 10 are all from musical films. Can you name the films as well as the stars pictured? Some people are in more than one photo. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. What non-actor plays the pianist here? Who's the woman". What's the movie? 7. You don't need to name the horse. 8. 9. 10. This one could be tough. It's from a late thirties musical.

    Retro Trivia

    Sticking with the Disney theme, two young fellows who appeared on "The Mickey Mouse Club" were also cast as brothers in several Disney movies. Can you name the two fellows and each of their movies where they played brothers?

    Name the pre-1970 film

    Could it be "The Grass is Greener"?

    That would be "Poor You", sung by Frank Sinatra, Red Skelton, and Virginia O'Brien in "Ship Ahoy". Here is a clip:

    Retro Trivia

    Could it be Shelly Fabares? She was in the "Annette" series and she was a regular on "The Donna Reed Show".

    Very good, Starlit. That song was one of Bing's and songwriter Johnny Mercer's biggest hits. Did you notice Roy Rogers and The Sons Of The Pioneers in that clip? Starliteyes, the thread is yours.

    This one should be fairly easy: I know every trail in the Lone Star State Cause I ride the range in a Ford V8

    Retro Trivia

    You are correct, Lavender. James Arness' prior commitment was not a movie, but a TV series. It was "Gunsmoke". It had been a radio show starring William Conrad, but Conrad was not quite right for the TV version. Walt felt bad for Buddy Ebsen, so he instructed his writers to give Buddy a major role in the series. He was cast as Davy's best friend, George Russell. Nice going, Lavender. You get to go next.
