The Champions are, of course, Marge and Gower Champion. I couldn't come up with a clue for Gower's first name. Here they are.




Yours is: *George Peppard whistles "Moon River" during the opening credits of "Breakfast At Tiffany's".* However, in the words of former pitcher Roger Clemens, I think you may have mis-remembered. Here is that clip.






I did like the clues, however. Now try this.



Paul Simon Had A Hit With "Call Me ________" "Uptown Girl" Was Sung By Billy ________ Dusty Springfield Sang "______ Of A Preacher Man" Ziggy Elman Wrote "_____ The Angels Sing" Kenny Rogers And The First Edition Recorded "________, Don't Take Your Love To Town" He Sang "Bless Your Beautiful Hide" To Jane Powell Barbara Mandrell's Youngest Sister Is Named ___lene Edna Ferber Wrote "______ Boat" Jackie Trent and Tony Hatch Had a Sixties Hit With "The Two Of ______" Marlo Thomas Was "_____ Girl" Irving Berlin Wrote "I ______ A Piano" Will Rogers Starred In "Life _______ At Forty" The Vogues Had a Hit With "Turn ______, Look At Me" Eugene O'Neill Wrote "______, Wilderness" Johnny Mercer And Harold Arlen Wrote "It's _________ _____ Three, There's No One In The Place Except You And Me" Ed Wood Directed "Plan ______ From Outer Space" Frank Sinatra Sang "_____The Wee Small Hours Of The Morning" Dylan Thomas Wrote "Do Not ______ Gentle ________ That Good Night" Judy Sang "Once Again As In Olden Days, Happy Golden Days Of ________, Faithful Fiends Who Are Dear To Us, Gather Near To Us Once More"+ Frankie Carle Had A Hit With " It Was Just A Neighborhood ________, That's All That It Was, But Oh, What It Seemed To Be"



This one was tough to compose. I was trying to find new clues for some worde that we have had before. Again, if you know old songs, composers, and authors, you'll be able to solve it. Give it a shot!

If you say mis-remembered I'll take your word..the soundtrack info gave George credit for whistling....I hadn't posted anyone whistling so gave it a shot. My text of authority is The Book of Miles Archer so...George loses.



That clue about the camel in Raggedy Ann and Andy came from Jonathan Schwartz on Sirius-XM 40's. A couple of Sundays ago, he gave credit to a REAL camel singing "Blue" in Raggedy Ann and Andy and told of the problems in finding one that could sing...how silly. Have you ever heard of this??



Answer to yours: Al Jolson and Ruby Keeler show us that Love Begins around (about) a quarter to Nine in Go Into Your Dance.



So, I'll try another: Tear jerker from Lionel Barrymore, The Voice of Bugle ... 70's TV series starring Hal Linder, Barney ...... Randy Newman song "He ..... .. All His Love" Siskel & Ebert gave 2 ...... .. or down on their movie reviews Billy Joel had a hit with "... So It Goes" Winston Churchill gaves us the sign of Peace, .. Hemingway title ...

"Go Into Your Dance" was the only movie that Al and then wife Ruby did together. Here is their big number.





[Y|http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rr5XQ9BhOqM]ours is *Ann Miller Gives Us "Thumbs Up And V For Victory" In "Reveille With Beverly"*.

That was one of those flag-waving, morale boosting, wartime musicals that were so popular Here is a bit of that production number.






[N|http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QBsEYcuwm0I]ow try this:


Rob Reiner Directed "The ______ Thing" He Was TV's Matt Houston He Was Gunther On TV's "Car 54, Where Are You?" 1995 Film "To Wong Foo, __________ For Everything, Julie Newmar" Howdy Doody's Pal Was Buffalo ________ ________ Lange Was Featured In "Peyton Place" Ray Price Sang "____ ____ Good Times" Wylie Watson Played Mr. __________ In "The 39 Steps" Rodgers And Hart Wrote "_______ ________ Mountain Greenery" Jimmy Dean Sang About "____, Bad John" Oscar Winning Musical "The __________way Melody" Tom Hanks Starred In "______ Away" Johnny Mathis Sang "Until The Twelfth _____ Never" "A Stitch In Time Saves _______" Mark Dinning Had A Sad Hit With "________ Angel" Jennifer Garner Starred In "13 Going On __________" "I'm In The Mood For Love" Was Introduced In "Every Night At _______"




By the time they made "The Jolson Story" in the forties, Al and Ruby were divorced and apparently it was a bitter one. Ruby would not allow the producers of "The Jolson Story" to use her name, so they changed the name of Al's dancer wife in the movie to Julie Benson. Of course, everyone knew who it was supposed to be.

Toby Wing was a seventeen year old plucked from the chorus for this number. You may have seen it before, but probably not in color. Here it is:





That last shot is what Busby Berkely called his "Tunnel of Cheesecake". He used that in several films. Yours is another Busby Berkely number, *Gene Kelly, Frank Sinatra, and Jules Munshin play O'Brien to Ryan To Goldberg in "Take Me Out To The Ball Game".* I'm sorry, but I could not find a video clip of that. Now try this:

I've got a lot of catching up to do. "When I'm Not Near The Girl I Love, I Love The Girl I'm Near" is a creed that many men have tried to follow, but with very limted success. Here is Tommy Steele with that rendition.




"Slaughter On Tenth Avenue" was performed by Gene Kelly and Vera-Ellen in "Words And Music". I think we have that clip here:






The latest is:

*The Sherman brothers wrote the songs for the movie "The Happiest Millionaire", including the song "Fortuosity".* *Tommy Steele did that one, too. Here he is:*






Now try this:

*"Amen" sung by Sidney Poitier in "Lillies Of The Field"*

I've got some catching up to do. Here is Danny Kaye as "The Court Jester". Please watch at least the first half of the clip. Lonesome Polecat should enjoy it.



Now here is Doris Day with "Any Way The Wind Blows".





The new one is:

*Ray Bolger Plays Himself In "The Great Zeigfeld"*

And here he is:
