Landmark is the undisputed champion of this game so far! Winston Churchill it is.

These were my remaining questions:

8. In the 1930’s I took the lead in countering the growing threat from Nazi Germany.

9. In WW2 I oversaw my country’s involvement in the war effort against Germany.

10. My wartime leadership was widely praised, although certain acts generated controversy.

11. Amid the developing Cold War I warned about Soviet influence in Europe.

12. Upon my death in 1965, I was given a state funeral.

I had a feeling from the combination of clues that it wasn't a US politician; and I know arthur is from SA originally, so I focused on English pols.

Nice choice, arthur. Has there ever been a modern politician as celebrated as Churchill who has had so many incredible failures punctuating so many incredible successes?

1. My childhood dream was to play shortstop for my hometown Pittsburgh Pirates
2. I'm a law school dropout
3. When I found my true calling, not only was I at the top of my field, but an innovator in many aspects.
4. I married my assistant--who happened to have been previously married to my closest collaborator.

5. I joined the Navy in 1944 and I must have never lost the uniform.

6. When my first wife was about to be fired from a major Hollywood film because of her alleged Communist sympathies, I threatened to close down the film I was directing for the same studio. The studio backed down, and both films were made.

No guesses, yet?

7. I once said, "Why you hypocrite, you fraud. The atheist who believes in God. You're just as religious as he was."

8. Rita Hayworth thought the movie she made with me was one of only two movies she thought was worth remembering.

Not John Derrick.

9. Though I was active for decades, I made perhaps my most famous splash in 1952.

10. I won an Honorary Academy Award "in appreciation of his versatility as an actor, singer, director and dancer, and specifically for his brilliant achievements in the art of choreography on film."

Yes, you got it, Mr Salk. Gene's first wife was Betsy Blair who was almost fired from Marty for being too leftist, and his second wife, Jeanne Coyne had previously been married to Kelly's brilliant collaborator, Stanley Donan. In the film Inherit the Wind, about the Scopes Monkey Trial, he did no singing or acting, but turned in a top notch performance as EK Hornbeck the cynical newspaperman. And in 1952, he was splashing around the screen in Singin'in the Rain, while in 1944 he danced with Rita Hayworth in Cover Girl.

The last few clues ensured you beat it out of me.

I will PASS.
But I will prep one for next time as I seem to have a knack for swooping in and stealing it..

Wish I’d gotten here sooner. “Inherit the Wind” is one of my all-time favorite movies. Love Kelly’s portrayal of E K Hornbeck (a thinly disguised H L Mencken).

“He that sups with the Devil should use a long spoon.”

“He’s the only man I know who can strut sitting down.”

“Hello, Devil. Welcome to hell.”

“I may be rancid butter. But I’m on your side of the bread.”
For a supernatural chiller mixing magic (prestidigitation, legerdemain) with Magic (occultism, mysticism), check out my novel MAGIC: AN OCCULT THRILLER at http://www.amazon.com/Magic-Occult-Thriller-Reed-Hall/dp/1453874836

I almost feel guilty jumping in here ... but what the heck ... Let's give this a try:

1. I was born in London but later became a US citizen.

2. My mother was an actress and my father a music hall comedian.

3. My father built a backyard theatre for me and my sister.
