  1. No, Nancy Reagan nee--Nancy Davis
  2. Fi--Andy Williams is one of the most versatile singers of the 20th century. If you really knew his repertoire, you'd comphrend his depth of emotion, stylish technique and broad range. He is actually a Baritone--and he still made a career of hitting Mancini's fluegelhorn high notes. I've seen him 3 times in concert over the last 50 years--he is also a phenomenal live entertainer. Bob Goulet--was a great singer--he had more of a concert or operatic voice--Not really that suited for American pop singing. He could have been a great opera star.

  7. Here's a twist on Double Indemnity-- A bored young wife, who is married to a rich older man, together with her husband plan to murder a young male business associate and split the life insurance money. Of course, the only complication is that the young, sexy blond wife falls in love with the pigeon. Does this sound familiar to you?
  8. Gotta Dance! On Broadway, one dancer literally does break not a leg, but an ankle and the understudy, who takes her place that night, is whisked away to Hollywood on the success of that one performance. A real-life fairy tale for whom?
  9. My favorite male singer made his starring movie debut co-starring with another major singer in the 1960's. Both singers were at the top of their professions, however one was noted for TV work and the other one was on Broadway. you can take it from there--

  16. #5--The Tap Princess says--Marty's love interest--"what a dog"--was none other than the wife of the biggest tap star of the 1950's--Betsy Blair, aka Mrs. Gene Kelly.
  17. For Fi's eyes only--I meant Bogie, had been on Broadway for several years and became a star from the play "Petrified Forest".
  18. Hint: the Hitchcock film in the previous question was filmed in England.
  19. Hint:--My great-grandmother came from Ireland--so did the hoofers in the question.

  22. Miles--when I was a kid every little girl and every 25th little boy were in tap shoes. On with the show-- This tap duo were legendary vaudevillians who ended up teaching and coaching two of Hollywood's biggest tap stars. One actually had them dancing with him in a film and utilized them for his greatest musical tap role. Here we're talking about 4 tap dancers--the 2 Hollywood stars are very well-known, as are their movies. Hint:--we're talking Buck 'n Wing here, i.e. hoofers.
  23. Very Big Hint: the film director aforesaid mentioned was, indeed, a very big man--in terms of physicality.
  24. Hint: the Hitchcock film I'm refering to was one of his lesser known British gems.
