Thanks. Dorothy Adams was Laura's maid in Laura, couldn't forget her. I'm so surprised about Claudette, she looks so much like her.

there is a similarity.. both sort of 'cupie doll'..this actress wasn't as famous as Colbert...but she did receive an Oscar nom...

Is #8 Nancy Carroll?

Carroll is another largely forgotten actresses, despite her Oscar nom for The Devil's Holiday; I remember her opposite Cary Grant in Hot Saturday.

Only number 4 is left...and she also received an Oscar nomination...although I usually think of her as a B actress...with A list connections...

Is #4 Terry Moore?

it is!  and at age 90, she is still very much around (I noticed on IMDB she has 3 credits for projects to be released this year)

lavenderblue and LawrenceA tied with 4 correct answers each, and since lavenderblue doesn't do pics, the thread goes to LawrenceA. ..but lavenderblue doesn't go away empty handed!  You get the prized cathat !                                                                  this is so much more than a crazy hat

thanks for playing...I'll post some more 'hat pics' (I think I've got around 50 of them..) in the future.

That's all of them.

Gershwin Fan, the thread is yours.

I can't think of any good ones to do at the moment. You or someone else could take over if that's okay.

These guys all have something in common.  They are all British actors.  Most are character actors, but some were leading men, at least sometimes.  Some should be easy, some maybe not so.  Can you name them?

 Very good, Lavender.  You got ten right, which is half of the photos.  Can someone else help with the rest?

Thanks Miles but I answered 12, were they all correct or are you saying 2 were incorrect?

You are  correct, Gershwin fan.  That leaves nos 6,7,8,9,14,15,and 16. 

Here are some movie titles to check out:

Flight Of The Phoenix

The Great Escape

Battle Of Britain

The Guns Of Navarone

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

 

You should find many of these actors in those movies.

14 looks like James Robertson Justice (Dr. Spratt in the 'Doctor' (in the house, etc) series..but his eyes look a little different here

15 is Lionel Jefferies, who I remember from some Peter Sellers brit comedies

16 is Donald Pleasance..aside from a lot of film work, I last saw him during a Columbo-binge..he was a winery owner who killed his brother
