  1. how right you are visual... your go..
  2. thank you Miles, try this one: Born in 1905, but not in this country.. Although I started playing in movies in 1923, it wasn?t until the beginning of the 1940's that people took a notice to me. I wanted to become a bullfighter but since my family moved to the US, I decided on being an actor after being picked as an extra for a big movie of 1923. Lon Chaneys, ?The Hunchback Of Notre Dame? Don?t bother looking it up though, because you will not find my name in the credits; remember I was just an extra... But that started me off and soon after in 1925 started playing with big named actors of the silent era; Clara Bow and Norma Talmadge. I was a dashing latin actor, and many woman after me, but I only maried twice, once for 5 years (2 children) and the second time, 40 years until my death. Any guess to who I am? Here is a little trivia for you as you probably do not know; I?m credited with being the only man to have portrayed both the villain and the hero of a single serial.
  3. You are non other than that great dancer of which you are refering to that movie of acrobatics; Singing in the rain... Donald O'connor...
  4. Ok *finance* a little to quick here.. lol Good job.... Love that Tony, but he does have EGO, does he not?
  5. Sorry ladies and gents, have been away... So here we go then; I was born in 1925 - poverty was a way of life with my family. I learned early in life that the only person you can depend on is"Yourself"! When I was in the navy W.W.II, I actually got to see the Japs surrender from a distance of about 300 yards. I became a heartthrob in the 50's to movie goers. . I played with every big star of my times back then, and of course I was a big star too, actually I'm still alive so you can say that I still am, regardless if I'm working in movies or not, guarantee you would know me if you seen me... I married, oh let me see....6 times, Wow! I only like young chicks man, you know ? I'm a wild sex maniac, so I like my females young, good figured and looks. Their only competition in looks is me, because lets face it, I'm very good looking, I know it, because I always boast about it, I'm not ashamed to say so. Yeah you could say that I'm full of myself...So what! When I came on the scene in early 50's, I was so hot in looks and popularity that everyone wanted to copy my look; Elvis combed his hair the way he did because of the way I had mine; in the 60's the Beatles put me on one of their album covers. But don't let the looks fool you, I'm a very good actor, and proved it by many big hits of the 50's and 60's with all the top stars of which that includes me... ok so this will be enough for now, do you me...?
  6. This is non other than the great _Allan Dwan_ Who made films such as: *John Wayne* *Sands of Iwo Jima*. and the *Douglas Fairbanks* version of *Robin Hood* ? He himself said at one time that he thought he had directed over 1400 films of which also including one-reelers This would span from his entry of films 1909 to his final one in 1961; *Most Dangerous Man Alive* (1961) staring *Debra Paget* and *Ron Randell*.. Not only was he one the early pioneers of films, he also had some inventions which has helped the movie making biz immensely..such; Camera Dollies and Crane Shot...
  7. Very well done Miles.. I am he.. Your go mate..
  8. Thank you lana; I was born 1907 in New York; After graduating from Cornel University I tried my hand in the business of advertisement, but soon found my way back into a passion of mine when I was in back in High School, Acting, due to health issues. After a couple years on Broadway, I was brought out to Hollywood when Sam Goldwyn bought the rights to a Broadway play I was in, of which I played the same role in the movies version, I never looked back. I was known for my slime-ball movie villain characters, although in real life I was the complete opposite. I was real popular in the 40's and 50's but did end up doing well in TV, especially in the late 50's and early 60's. In a 1967 TV mini-movie, I played a different role to that of a very popular1950 big screen version I had made with Jimmy Stewart. I was married in 1932 all the way up into her until her death in 1967, the year before mine. I was real family man, enjoyed being a scoutmaster. My wife and I raised two wonderful children; one became an actor for a few years and the other a talent agent
  9. You are none other than Sydney Greenstreet my dear Lana....

  11. Sorry theladeve you know turkey day... But yes you got it; What was it that gave it away, I figured this one would take a little longer.. Ahhh well.. your up...
  12. Thank you Miles I: I was born in 1928 - Joined the Navy while still in high School and got kicked out after only a year, as they found out I was under aged. After finishing HS I rejoined the Navy. After leaving the Navy I went and studied at Pasadena Playhouse, and later graduated from UCLA. I first appeared in films in 1953, three years later won the Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actor. I played with the biggest stars: Spencer Tracy - Burt Lancaster - John Wayne - Elizabeth Taylor -William Holden - Kirk Douglas, and many, many more. I did a lot of TV series work in the in the 60's - 70's - 80's and some in the early 90's. In the mid 70's I had a very big TV series hit which most people would remember me more form than of my other works, in fact it made me a household name. I have my own star on the Hollywood walk of fame. I owned a playhouse in Texas until the late 80's of which had some big actors acted in. I am also known for my Animal rights Activism. I?m still alive as I write these clues for you today... So now, do you know me?
  13. Ah Miles it is hard to stump this Flynn expert; You are non other than: Alexis Smith
