How many of these famous (classic) actresses do you recognize?

I love when newspapers surprise me. This quiz appeared the other day in a national newspaper.

Shame on me, I couldn't guess all the names (and I didn't know at all a couple of the girls)...there are some tricky pictures, so don't be so confident...

  1. I was proud of myself. I got 25! Well, to be completely and 100% honest: I got 22 correct. I knew 3 of them. I recognized them and could name the movies and could picture the posters but couldn't remember the names. I'm not sure if that counts. But I'd like to say it does! Great post! Thanks for sharing that!!

  3. I knew 22... but a lot of these actresses (like June Allyson and Jayne Mansfield) I literally NEVER watch in anything. I was surprised that I missed Loretta Young though!

  4. Hola Clara, adiviné 25, entre las que no reconocí estaban: Greta Garbo, debe de ser una foto de la época del cine mudo, y a Jayne Mansfield que aunque sé quien era en esa foto está muy extraña.
    La foto de Bette Davis, creo que corresponde a Jezabel, mi película preferida.
    Saludos y buen fin de semana.

  5. I got all of them except #27! It doesn't really look like her!

  6. I didn't recognize Cyd Charisse from that photograph, and it took me a while to come up with Gene Tierney, but other than that I got them all. I probably wouldn't recognize my local Member of Parliament if he walked down the street, but the ladies of classic cinema? - Sure!

  7. Clara, I eventually figured out everyone except Susannah York. I realize I'm not alone in being stumped by the radiant Susannah, but I'm annoyed at myself because, having enjoyed her performances in TOM JONES, THE SILENT PARTNER, SEBASTIAN, and SUPERMAN, among others, you'd think I'd have gotten a clue! Maybe it's time for a Susannah York Blogathon or something! Anyway, great guessing game, Clara! :-)

  9. I missed two. Could name Susannah York and I thought Gene Tierney was Yvonne DeCarlo.
