i never knew that about gable. the king thing or loretta.

 

this beautiful but tempermental actress would be 88 today had she not died of an accidental drug overdose at age 36.

 

she married a texan who became a policeman, a playwright and a baseball player, and was romantically linked with several leading men and a successful politician.

I answered Clark Gable below and was waiting for confirmation. Then the thread was just taken over.

It's okay, no biggie...but let's know whether we are following the general rules...or no. Shall we make it okay just to throw up a question whenever we want? This is an EASY thread so maybe it would work?

 

Finance, go ahead, you're up...

this actor worked as a lifeguard and a radio announcer before getting into the movies. in a pair of films directed by a future tv talk show director, he acted with a chimp.

 

he would meet his future wife when they costarred in a naval drama.

 

later he would leave film acting to become a spokesman for general electric.

 

then he did other stuff that made him world famous.

It is Ronald Reagan (but I'm not allowed to say so and you're not allowed to accept my confirmation or have the next turn until LuckyDan also says it's Ronald Reagan and says it's your thread, or your turn, or you're next, or yours, or..)

:P

Well, those ARE the rules.

:P

 

T'would have been better not have said anything at all,

I know that now...besides the answer I gave that was 

misunderstood did not have the appearance of a

conventional answer, I added some of my usual dribble

which may have resulted in misunderstanding. I don't

know whether or not to take seriously LuckyDan's

"self-imposed" exile, but if it is so, I would beseech LD

to cease that nonsense and return to us post haste.

If the exile thing was in jest, then all the better.

In either case. hope to see LuckyDan here ASAP.

Let me do one to keep it going, please...

dedicated to the one in exile...

:)

 

Name an actor who played the sleazy

one in a pair of nifty noirs from the 40s...

In each film, he had a 'partner in crime'

played by the same woman, and who

both preyed upon a victim who was

played by the same actor in each film.

 

If you know the films, you know the actors

 

(It shouldn't take lang [sic] to get this one).

This actress was slated to play the lead in a film but, unfortunately, died.  A couple of years later the film was made with another actress and it evolved into a popular series.

 

Can you name the original actress, the actress who replaced her and the film?
