Shelley Winters

 

Eve, I have to plead guilty. When I looked at the cast list for "Deadline At Dawn" and saw the name Marvin Miller, I immediately thought of the TV series "The Millionaire", where he played Michael Anthony. And with Osa Massen also in the cast, well, the rest was easy.

 

Now here's someone that almost everyone on these boards is familiar with.

 

He Was TV's "Sugarfoot" He Played Oskar Schindler Randolph Scott Starred In "The ______ T" + Alec Guinness Was "Our _______ In Havana"

 

And for those of you who look at this thread but don't play, it can be as simple as the one I just posted. Just come up with a celebrity's name. think of sound-alike clues for each syllable, and give it a try. If you include a point of reference in your clues, you will avoid ambiguity, and hopefully, the respondents will be able to come up with the answer. What have you got to lose?
