Axel, I am not sure where you are going with that. You may be right, just type the name of who you think it is.

10. I was offered a recurring role on the 1960's Batman TV show, but I said I would take the role only if I could Kill Batman. My offer was declined.

I think he has gone Bonaventure.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

To Arthur, Given that you started this thread, I am asking you for a ruling on this. Spencer Tracy is the correct answer. Axel knew it, I think with his statement about a famous brother named Dick. Then Tommy said Bonaventure which was Spencer Tracy's middle name. I think they both knew it, but Axel was first to actually state the name correctly. Who gets the win, and the next person to guess?

11. When asked the secret to my successful acting, I simply said "I don't do anything, I just recite my lines."
12. In one of my last roles, I had a small part, but was very very very very mad.
13. I passed away withing two weeks of completing my last film.
14. I hid it well, but after years of depression, drug abuse, and binge alcoholism, my body was a mess. At 5 foot 10, I weighed over 200 pounds too.
15. I was quite adept at playing the hero or the villain, I was good for both comedy and drama too.

Good one, Cliff! I was at a complete loss. I guess even though Axel’s initial answer was somewhat “disguised”, he knew the personality first, and posted before Tommy (who also provided an indirect answer).

So Axel, it’s your turn!

Ok, thank you gentlemen, sorry for the confusion and sorry tommy!

1) I was born in 1937 in New Jersey, my parents gave me the name John Joseph and my sign is taurus and I think I fulfill many of the characteristics that are attributed to this sign.

2) My mother was just 17 years old as I arrived, so my grandma played as being my mother to protect her daughter´s reputation. Not aware of this, I thought she was my elder sister. My mother´s family came from Ireland, England and Germany. Who my father is, I don´t really know and it seems that I am also not really interersted in knowing who my father is.

3) As my mother and I left my Hometown to live in Los Angeles, I was 17 years old and my first job there was in a toy-shop.

5) After that I took acting lessons, I wanted to be an actor. James Coburn was my classmate. It took some time until my first important movie, I played in some B-movies "The Raven" was one of them...

Tadaaa! Bingo and congratulations, you´re the winner karnak! The "fan-post-thing of Tom and Jerry" was unknown to me (found this quite amusing) and I recognized that his birthday is almost like mine (except for the year...)

so, karnak, I think it is your turn!

Being a fan of old horror & sci-fi movies, "The Raven" rang a loud bell for me.

Let me think a minute...

Da*#, I thought it to be a little bit of misleading because he didn´t act in the front row like Price, Karloff or Lorre...should have kept this hint for later! But good work, karnak!

I was born in California in 1934.

I died in California in 1993, at the still-youthful age of just 59.

An accomplished amateur magician myself, I am best known for my starring roles in popular American TV series, ranging from sitcoms to crime drama to sci-fi.

A pause for a moment of public service.

Thanks for that, Cliff! I had started compiling a list of all the famous people I had chosen, but stalled at around page 58. So your efforts are very much appreciated!
