Nice guess Arthur, but no not Gary.

9. I have won two Razzie Awards (UCLA Award opposite of Oscars, rather for poor performance) I was nominated for a third, but was beaten out by Madonna. Don't know if this is an honor or not.

Pia it is! Congratulations Karnak!

11. Early in my career I had a TV special in my name that got an estimated 17 watchers.
12. I posed twice for skin magazines, both times using clever clothing and angles so that no one saw the things people buy those mags to see.
13. My first husband was 30 years older than I am.
14. With my second husband I took up residence is a wealthy neighborhood of Las Vegas.
15. This husband had a wandering eye, and I had to keep a close watch.
16. Fair to say nothing I have done in my career has brought be the real success I wanted.

It was the Santa Claus Conquers the Martians reference that did it for me. Right up there with Plan 9 From Outer Space, or Robot Monster.

I was born in the Bronx, NY, in 1914 to a family of poor Russian Jewish immigrants.
We lived in a six-story tenement, and I had to sleep on dining-room chairs to accommodate the paying borders we often took in to make ends meet.
Yiddish theater enthralled me, and I worked hard to divest myself of my Bronx accent; in later years as an actor, many thought my self-cultivated precise diction was of British origin.

Not Tony Curtis.

I kept my first name, but for show business changed my last name to something less ethnic. My father disagreed with me over this.

I was a popular character actor for 30 years on television, and my career included more than 500 TV and movie appearances — and, in later years, animated cartoon voiceover work.

My most famous TV role made me a minor 1960s cult icon, and probably contributed to my being subsequently often typecast as a fey and sometimes campy villain.

No, not Sid either.

I died in 2002 at age 87, just three days before my 88th birthday, and just two months before an NBC made-for-TV movie was set to begin filming which would have reunited myself and the rest of the surviving cast from my most famous and popular 1960s TV series, bringing what would have been “closure” to a classic series that had ended after three seasons without a conclusive final “wrap up” episode.

I was credited in that aforesaid series throughout its entire run with “Special Guest Star” billing, even though I was in probably every episode (except, notably, the show’s pilot), and I subsequently ended up sort of stealing the show from its purported main-character stars (which caused some resentment and friction on the set with those actors, who had been hired to be the lead characters).

Jonathan Harris?
My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".

Jonathan Harris it is -- the cowardly villain "Dr Zachary Smith" of TV's LOST IN SPACE.

(After his days on the set, he used to sit up nights thinking of new epithets with which to insult the Robot: "you bellicose bumpkin," "you bubble-headed booby," "you cackling clod," "you cantankerous contraption," "you treacherous tin-plated fugitive from a junk heap -- now begone, ninny!" Those were actually Harris' original creative contributions to his own scripted dialogue.)

Your turn, Chessman.

It was "special guest star" that clued me in. Fun! Ok.

I was born in 1917. In 1935, I won the "football throw" at the California State High School Track and Field Championship. My mark of 220 feet remains the state record in that short-lived event.

I wanted a classical singing career, but after a consultation with Romano Romani (haha, great name!), the composer, conductor, and coach who had shaped the career of soprano Rosa Ponselle, I accepted that the timbre (or tone quality) of his voice was that of a tenor rather than a lyric baritone, but without the high notes of a concert tenor. As a result, I decided on a different, but related path.

I had a prolific stage career, but only made one movie. Probably because one of my eyes was not perfectly aligned, a condition that would be magnified greatly on the big screen.

I grew up with the all the B'way musical LPs, so the clue about stage but not film led to my Raitt guess.
Heck of a singer:



I'll pass to anyone who wants to take it.

Oh, such a fantastic singer. I always wanted to play Billy Bigelow but never happened...but I did get to play Jigger Craigin the villain in a stage production, once.

Raitt's singing of the last couple of minutes of "Soliloquy" from Carousel - particularly in the original cast album - is one of musical theatre's greatest moments (IMHO!).

OK, Landmark, I’ve got one ready:

1. I spent most of my adult life in France.

2. Though baptized a Catholic, I later became an atheist.

3. I demonstrated extraordinary artistic talent in my early years.
