Trivia for the other 98% of us

How about James Darren, there's also Ricky Nelson ?? James Darren's first film was in 1956 and was in quite a few films before he sang the theme song for GIDGET (not sure if this was a single) and became well known from that film.His big hit of Goodbye Cruel World was in the very early '60's after his film career had begun.

Ricky Nelson was a very young kid when he first became well known on THE ADVENTURES OF OZZIE & HARRIET. He didn't record songs until later on. (you didn't specify film actor, he was a tv actor first although later Ricky appeared in films).

Tab Hunter..but he only had one hit that I remember. 

Neither Hunter, Darren, or Ricky.I'm thinking of a female. She had MANY albums that sold well.

Shelley Fabares ?

Shelley was NOT a consistently big-selling recording artist. This singer was, and her market was adults rather than teenagers.

Hint: She may have been best known for commercials for a certain product.

I don't know anything about the commercials, but I'm taking a guess that it's Julie London.

Any GUY would know plenty about Julie's Marlboro commercials. Your thread.

Well, not being a GUY or a smoker, I guess that explains it.  Anyway --

 

This actor was considered to be one of the best dressed men in Hollywood and pioneered the concept of the political image consultant in the days of early television by advising President Eisenhower on how to most effectively present himself to television viewers.

Would that be Robert Montgomery ?

Thank You!

I will continue being a member

despite the fact that I'm a member

(I am afflicted with Woody Allen Disease,

which is pretty serious because I don't

even have an analyst)

I strive also for the 99.99999% Club as

it seems to be commensurate with

another affliction I have, what Woody

Allen would call "sub-mental."

 

Next:

 

Name at least three actors who have

played King Henry VIII. There may

be more than three but three's enough

because those are the only ones I know.

More than three and you are a superstar!

Be sure to include a rather early one that

I'm thinking of. :-D

1. Robert Shaw in A Man for All Seasons (1966)

2. Charles Laughton in The Private Life of Henry VIII (1933)

 

Who can come up with the third? The one I'm looking

for was prior to Laughton. The role is by a famous actor

of the times. Whoever gets this will have the last laugh.

:D

Geez, according to IMDB he was portrayed 89 times !!

the earliest was

Henry VIII (1911) Played by Arthur Bourchier (as Henry VIII)

:huh:

 

My heaven's, I had no idea! That is amazing!

The one I was thinking of was Emil Jannings

in the 20s. The phrase "the last laugh" in the

previous post was supposed to be an embedded

clue as to his identity. The title where he played

the King is Anne Boleyn, made in 1920.

 

Sixes, thanks for the info, an interesting

tidbit, to say the least.

-in Tati's "Mon Oncle" ('58), what's the name of Mr. Hulot's nephew?

Gee, I'd hate to see the type of question that's for the top 2% of us.

You said recently in answer to one of my posts that you were too busy posting to google anything. ;-).  I would think that the answer to this question is easily google-able. You refuse probably because you seem constitutionally averse to the google machine ;-). I refuse (at least for now) because it's too easy. I love that movie and I recall that the nephew is a little boy. I think I know the name and I'm hoping that it might come to me. I don't have anything against researching answers, just that in this case, I want to remember it if I can. Someone else will surely get it before that happens...
