They are indeed but since I have recently been shown how to cheat, require that I employ a considerable amount of self control. I promise I will try to do them honestly though, even if it means I get none of them right.

Is 17 Jackie Kennedy Onassis?

15. Minette - Princess Henrietta Anne, daughter of Charles I.

1. Looks a lot like Tennessee Williams, but I don't think it is.

The musical clues are terribly confusing.

Temp, yes indeed - as painted by Van Dyck when still a wee toddler.

Dolenz and Tennessee W are not correct.


The audio clues can always be turned off again if you find them confusing - I even gave you all little knobs to do it Cheers

13 - Must be George Bush. One song that really helped!

In the same vein, could 14 be a wee Tony Blair?

No. 12 would be Robert Mugabe I think.

EDIT :

No. 16 .... a wild guess but is it Oliver Stone?

Your musical clues are as difficult to decypher as the pictures themselves!

16 - George Harrison.
19 - the Kerry connection's getting to me. It's not Ms Katona so is it John Kerry?

It is little Colin, yes - and a US high school photo at that! His father was a history teacher who swapped with another history teacher for a year in a US/UK exchange deal back in the 70s and the family went with him. The photo was taken during this period while young Firth practiced forgetting the King's English.

6 is Simon Cowell alright - rehearsing at a tender age his future role as Captain Black introducing the Mysterons to the human race in the guise of brain-dead talent show contestants who slowly but surely are now taking over the world.

The rest are wrong, I'm afraid, Trike.

Yes - at two years of age and already kicking a ball.

(Another one of my "confusing" audio clues - which actually names the lad in the photograph) Smile

The man with the unilateral cryptorchid scrotum indeed (according to the well known song). This was him as the 14 year old boarding school dropout who dreamed of being a Boer so he could fight the British. Strange chap ...

The audio clue seems to be the theme tune to Wallace and Gromit. But 'Whiskey Golf' makes no sense at all. So maybe Wallace is really Wallis as in Wallis Simpson. So is #10 King Edward VIII of Great Britain?

Not Walt! Well it certainly looks quite like him. Ok then, since all babies look the same I'm going by just the music clue: "Lets face the music and dance"

No. 3 ... is it Rudolf Nureyev?

This baby had troubles ahead indeed - including a spouse who died young and who was only then revealed to have emptied their bank account to the tune of 20 million dollars, leaving this baby bankrupt and hugely in debt. Extremely hard work and a very protracted law suit restored the money eventually, allowing the baby to finally retire.

Number 3 is really hard.

It's not Irving Berlin nor is it Doris Day. And $20 million dollars is a lot of money even today. So it's probably one of the super-rich.

Doris Day appeared in films with Cary Grant who was briefly married to Barbara Hutton who was super-rich. But she famously squandered her own inheritance and didn't get it back. So that line of enquiry seems to be a cul-de-sac. Arrgh.

Okay - is it Geraldine Rockefeller?
