WHAT'S MY LINE?
THE WHISTLER
THE WIZARD OF OZ (1939)
     These are actors that Maven frankly can't remember their names!  There are two websites that are helpful in finding out about these actors . . . as long as you can figure out their names!
     www.imdb.com - This one is great because you can look up a movie to check out the actors when you can't remember . . . or just plain don't know . . . their names.
     http://www.dougmacaulay.com/kingspud/sel_by_actor_index_1.php - Not as complete as www.imdb.com but worth checking out!

Know Who's Who in This Cartoon and What Roles?!
whozaatcartoon.jpg
Please Let Maven Know at theoldmoviemaven@yahoo.com!

Maven can name some of these actors and the parts
that they are portraying but not all.
Anybody want to help by sending in your suggestions to theoldmoviemaven@yahoo.com?

Morris Ankrum
morrisankrum.jpg

     Morris Ankrum starred in such a wide array of movies, expecially in the nifty fifty creature features, that a serious film fan is at least familiar with his face.
 
     He starred in Earth versus the Flying Saucers (1956) as Brig. Gen. John Hanley with John Zaremba to Kronos, Beginning of the End, and The Giant Claw in 1957 alone.
 
     Ankrum can be found at the Internet Database at:  http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0030194/.

Thomas Browne Henry
thomasbrownehenry.jpg
     Thomas Browne Henry is an actor that Maven has been know to confuse with Morris Ankrum.
     Why?
     If Maven knew the answer to that, she wouldn't have confused them!
     In her defense, Henry did appear in Earth versus the Flying Saucers (1956) as Vice Admiral Enright, Beginning of the End (1957) as Col. Tom Sturgeon and 20 Million Miles to Earth (1957) as Maj. Gen. A. D. McIntosh. . . .
     Hmmmmm . . . why do those titles sound so familiar to Maven?!?!
     Good thing there are two website entries about him!
 
 
<O><O><O><O><O><O><O><O><O><O>
John Zaremba
johnzaremba.jpg
     John Zaremba was a prolific actor who appeared in such classics as 20 Million Miles to Earth (1957) as Dr. Jason Uhl and Earth vs. the Flying Saucers (1956) as Professor Kantor.
 
     Unfortunately, Maven still has a problem remembering his name!!
 
     Check out his Internet Database entry at http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0953437/.

Neal McDonough

     Maven came across Neal McDonough in a short-lived TV series, Medical Investigation (2004 - 2005) and enjoyed watching him.
 
     Maven just wishes that more movies/shows utilized him!
