    Yes, it's Walter Long. The other two are Guy Madison and Jerome Cowan. What the three of them have in common is that they all played characters named Miles Archer. Walter Long played the character in the first version of "The Maltese Falcon" in the early 1930's. Jerome Cowan played the part in the better known 1941 version. Guy Madison played a character named Miles Archer in a western called "The Charge At Feather River". Shutoo got three and Lawrence got three. Lavender got one. Since Shutoo got in first, he gets to go next.

    I hope that everyone here had a Happy Mother's Day, and I also hope that none of your moms looked like Anne Ramsey. Thanks to Shutoo and Lawrence. We have six of them now. We still need #2. He menaced Laurel and Hardy in a couple of films, and he also had something in common with the gentlemen in these next two photos. Now do you know #2?

    Do You Know Me?

    Sorry, I lost track of this thread. Yes, Princess, it's Una O'Connor. She was brought to Hollywood to reprise her stage role in "Cavalcade". She stayed and had a very nice career. Good work, Princess. You get to go next.

    In the movies, sometimes your face is your fortune. Can you identify these pretty faces? 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7.

    That is correct, Starlit. Of course, one of the band members, John Payne, falls for her. Starliteyes, you get to go next.

    describe the scene game

    As a publicity gimmick and goodwill gesture, a band adopts a European orphan and brings her to the U.S. They are all there to greet the child when her boat arrives, but they are all surprised to find that she is not a child. She's an attractive young woman.

    Retro Trivia

    Yes, Princess. The Newton Brothers appeared several times on Jackie Gleason's variety show called "The American Scene Magazine", which was broadcast on Saturday nights from 1962 to 1964 before a name change to "The Jackie Gleason Show". I remember when the Newton brothers were first on. My mother was in the kitchen and heard the music from the TV. She asked "Who's that girl singing? She has a very nice voice". I answered "It's not a girl. It's a big kid with a high voice". There used to be YouTube clips available, but I can't find them anymore, so you'll just have to take my word for it. Princess, you're up next.

    Is it "Grumpy Old Men"?

    Thanks to Lavenderblue and Princess, we have them all now. I'll leave the thread open at this time.

    You are 100% correct, Lavender. The Mauch twins would go on to make several movies together, including "The Prince And The Pauper" with Errol Flynn. By the way, "Anthony Adverse" was the favorite book of Tony Curtis. When he changed his name from Bernard Schwartz, he took the name Anthony for his first name because he liked "Anthony Adverse" so much. He also insisted that when he died, he wanted to be buried with a copy of the book, "Anthony Adverse". Indeed he was. Great work, Lavender. You even get the bonus points, and you know how valuable those can be. It's your turn now.

    Retro Trivia

    Here's a hint: In those early years, if you heard a recording and didn't know who was singing, you might think it was a young lady.

    Very good so far. We still need these folks: 1A. If you figured what each member of a pair had in common with the other member, then you know his last name. He played old prospectors, frontiersmen, and storekeepers. 8A. He was an actor, singer, and musician. He helped introduce the song "Singin' In The Rain". He was also famous for providing the voice of a famous Disney character. Some Mickey Mouse Club fans will remember that he taught them how to spell Encyclopedia. 8B. I purposely posted this picture to see if I could fool Princess Of Tap and Lavenderblue, and apparently it worked. He would normally have been dark-haired, with a hairy chest. He was a TV star in the sixties.

    Briefly Lyrical

    It has to be "Ice Cream Fantasy", also known as "We Want Ice Cream" from "Kid Millions". The movie starred Eddie Cantor, Ethel Merman, Ann Sothern, George Murphy, and the Nicholas Brothers. In the "Ice Cream Fantasy", many of Hollywood's child actors appeared. Here are Eddie and former chorus girl Doris Davenport, who played his love interest, "Toots". In this next photo, the four kids on the extreme left are "Our Gang" members Stymie Beard, Tommy Bond, Leonard Kibrick, and Wally Albright. Also appearing were Edith Fellows, Dickie Jones, and Bobby Jordan. Then unknowns Lucille Ball, Paulette Goddard, and Barbara Pepper were chorus girls in this movie. Wouldn't it be great if TCM could show it sometime?

    This thread has been dormant for a while, so I'll jump in. Here are pairs of folks. Each member of a pair has something in common with the other member of the pair. Some may appear differently than how you normally remember them. Can you identify them? 1A. 1B. 2A. 2B. 3A. 3B. 4A. 4B. 5A. 5B. 6A. 6B. 7A. 7B. 8A. 8B. 9A. 9B. 10A, 10B.

    Retro Trivia

    Princess, I'm a little surprised myself that I wasn't familiar with Roxane's name. Perhaps if she had been a regular cast member of a TV series, I might have known her sooner. Of course, your clues were up for several weeks and nobody else even ventured a guess, so maybe she was just a bit obscure. Now, in the early sixties, Jackie Gleason had a weekly variety show. In the first season, he had as guests three young men who were very talented brothers. They sang and played several musical instruments. They appeared on his show several more times over the next few years. The lead singer of the brothers went on to become rather famous. Do you know who that singer is?
