Thanks, Mark! Not able to walk properly yet, but slowly getting better & better. Back to the quiz:

I was an indifferent, sullen student who showed no interest in after-school activities.

During World War One I enlisted in the United States Navy. I recalled later, "At eighteen, war was great stuff. Paris! Sexy French girls! Hot ***!"

After the armistice, I spent most of my time ferrying troops back from Europe.

Through a friend whose father had show-business connections, I obtained an office job with a film company. I made my stage debut a few months later, nervously delivering one line of dialogue. Later I appeared in several plays.

Although I had been raised to believe that acting was a lowly profession, I liked the late hours actors kept and the attention they received. I spent much of my free time in speakeasies, drinking heavily.

You got it, Cliff! I had quite a few clues left:

Preferring to learn by doing, I never took acting lessons. I was persistent and worked steadily at my craft, eventually appearing in at least 17 Broadway productions.

Theatrical production dropped off sharply after the Wall Street Crash of 1929, and many of the more-photogenic actors headed for Hollywood. I debuted on film with Helen Hayes, and also appeared in a movie with Joan Blondell.

I became friends with Spencer Tracy, whom I liked and admired, and we became close friends and drinking companions.

I finally became a star in a film which co-starred Bette Davis and Leslie Howard.

I was a founding member and the original leader of the Hollywood Rat Pack. In the spring of 1955, after a long party in Las Vegas attended by Frank Sinatra, Judy Garland, David Niven, Angie Dickinson and others, my wife surveyed the wreckage and said: "You look like a !@#$%^! rat pack.”

My portrayals of private detectives became the models for detectives in other noir films.

My most significant romantic lead role was in a now-classic movie with Ingrid Bergman.

4. I must have seen the error of my ways, my first two marriages lasted only two years each. My third lasted only four. My fourth marriage has lasted 30 years, and we are still married today.

No not Paul.

5. At age 3 (Believe it or not) I learned to ice skate due to my father's profession. I never pursued that as a career, but I do think it was one reason for my agility.

9. After three years, the show was canceled.
10. I found I was largely typecast. I was in a few other TV shows, but mostly I played the one character. The most recent time was just last year.

At first, I only glanced at the clues and I would have bet it was Liza Minnelli.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

And Karnak once again picks up the win with Burt Ward!

11. I am technically a "Jr." but I don't use it professionally. The last name I use professionally is my mother's maiden name.
12. I am not a strong singer, but I did record a couple of songs for Frank Zappa.
13. My 4th wife and I run a non profit for rescue dogs, and we seem very successful.
14. My 4th wife and I formulated our own highly nutritious dog food.
15. One of my strongest trade marks was the constant making of family friendly expletive's. (Holly spring in a trap Batman! etc.)

I was born in England in 1917, and died in 2008 (aged 90) in Sri Lanka.

I was both a popularizer of science and an avid proponent of real space travel, as well as a hugely popular science fiction author.

I am credited with the well-known quote "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic."

Not Asimov, but close.

As early as 1945 I proposed a space-based communication system using satellites in geostationary orbits.

I was knighted in 1998. (So you can call me "Sir -----.")

I hosted 1980s-1990s TV programs exploring unexplained phenomena with titles such as "-----'s Mysterious World," and "-----'s Mysterious Universe."
