10/11 Guessed on a few and blew the last one. I would have bet money that Alfred Hitchcock picture was actually Curly Howard!

9 of 11. I just cannot believe that was Doris Ziffel!!!!!

Hers was a sad story. She gained a lot of weight due to an incident (maybe a car accident?) and could no longer do the roles she used to do.

There is absolutely no way that #11 isn’t Jonathan Harris.

I agree with you.

I thought so as well, he was one of the 2 I missed, the other was Doris Ziffel and she would have been my last guess!
