PostSubject: QUIZ!!! More Little Cherubs, Imps and Assorted Devils to Identify!   Wed 12 Feb 2014, 13:39

What's that I hear? It's been way too long since the last one?

Ok so! Here's yet another bunch of 21 little devils who went on to become legends in their own lunchtime. How many can you guess? As usual a very helpful little musical (or not so musical) clue accompanies each pic ...

Picture 1


Clue for 1 Clue 2 for 1
That's the man, ferval! A young Alexander Graham Bell outside the family's modest greek-pillared croft near Edinburgh in 1860 or thereabouts.



Picture 2


Clue for 2 Clue 2 for 2

Picture 3

Clue for 3

Well done, MM! Amelia Earhart, the intrepid aviation pioneer it is!



Picture 4


Clue for 4 Clue 2 for 4
Well done Trike - Walt Disney before, as the Animation Guild found out, he was to grow up to be an actual cowboy.



Picture 5

Clue for 5

Right there, ferval! The late Neil Armstrong, who taught the later Michael Jackson everything he ever knew about dancing.



Picture 6

Clue for 6

Yes, Vizzer! A juvenile TE Lawrence when Sunday dessert was probably more relevant to the lad than any desert would eventually come to be.



Picture 7


Clue for 7 Clue 2 for 7
My word, that took some time! Yes indeed, normanhurst - little Ernestito Guevara Lynch himself before becoming famous as a rugby player (nicknamed "Fuser") and then some other stuff later.

Picture 8

Clue for 8

Exactly Meles meles, this is Stephen Hawking at a point in his own history of time when an event horizon most likely meant the day before the newsagents stocked the next issue of Eagle Comic.



Picture 9

Clue for 9

Yes indeed Temp! Young master Bertrand Russell seen here contemplating the philosophical effects of a whack with a cricket bat.



Picture 10

Clue for 10

Spot on, Meles meles! A young Donald Campbell at the wheel of his father Malcom's "Campbell-Napier-Railton Blue Bird" car in the 1930s.



Picture 11


Clue for 11 Clue 2 for 11
Right again, MM. A young Pablo Picasso in less abstract times.

Picture 12

Clue for 12

Yes Temp. The Little Sparrow herself, Edith Piaf (who as can be heard from the clue shared at least one common musical attitude with Billie Holiday when it came to life's vicissitudes)



Picture 13

Clue for 13

Correct ferval, the Nation of Islam leader (and later assassination victim of the same crew), Malcolm Little, aka X (if that all makes sense).



Picture 14

Clue for 14

Well done, Temp. The original "deaf, dumb and blind kid" herself, the amazing Helen Keller.



Picture 15


Clue for 15 Clue 2 for 15
Bang on, normanhurst! Mae West it is!

Picture 16


Clue for 16 Clue 2 for 16
Correct, MM! His mother dressed him as a girl until he was five years old (which might explain a lot actually). Here the infant Ernest Hemingway contemplates a lifetime of macho over-compensation while fiddling with his posie.


Picture 17

Clue for 17

Yes MM, an almost medieval looking master Henry Ford who when not bunking history liked to wear hats of any colour, as long as they were black.



Picture 18

Clue for 18

Right, Temp! Little Leo before he catapulted to fame (and into the North Atlantic - though his heart goes on, I believe)



Picture 19

Clue for 19

Yes indeed, normanhurst! The floppy voiced fop and NOTW vanquisher himself, Hugh John Mungo Grant.



Picture 20

Clue for 20

Yes again, Temp. Jackie Kennedy/Oasis nee Bouvier, who we now know wasn't necessarily Kennedy's first lady all the time.



Picture 21

Clue for 21

Correct, Meles meles! A bouncing bundle of Bogart babyhood - Humphrey in the days when "The Big Sleep" was a longer afternoon nap than normal.

Number 9  is young Bertrand.

Is 18 Kurt Cobain or Leonardo diCaprio?

I'll go for Leonardo.

Number 14 has been driving me mad - but of course, "deaf, dumb and blind kid" must be Helen Keller?

Number 10 : Donald Campbell?

Purely from the clue I suspect number 3 is Amelia Earhart.

Number 11, with "A Room with a View", as well as that nose, must be E M Forster!

And as a wild-ish guess, is number 15 Maggie Thatcher? .... though I'm not exactly sure how that fits with the clue.


..... Anyway enough, and now I really must get back to work!

Thatcher and Forster aren't amongst the cuties alas, MM.

(ps - I concatenated your and Temp's posts above. Nothing sinister I assure you, just trying to delay "rollover" to another page in the thread which makes things a little more complicated for browsing the pics)

Number 8  (god, what an ugly kid) with the obvious Star Trek clue I'm guessing to be one of the original TV cast .... and I'm gonna plump for Leonard Nimoy.

If it is him you can see why he ended up playing Spock ... did they even need to use prosthetic ears?

This quiz really is too addictive. I'm supposed to be painting the ceiling in a bedroom whilst composing a vaguely intelligent response for either the Plato, Russell or Quantum Mechanics threads  Rolling Eyes

PS : I'm a bit miffed about E M Forster, I was so sure it was him!

Number 12 - No Regrets - Je ne regrette rien - Edith Piaf?

Number 20 looks like Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis. How pretty she was (if 'tis she).

No 5 - Neil Armstrong. He really didn't change much.

Could 21 be Lauren Bacall?

Number 8 ... Ooops, I previously said "god, what an ugly kid" ... Now I feel rather embarassed, although I suppose I shouldn't really as the photo was taken when he was young.

But anyway, I think number 8 is a young Stephen Hawking, no?

And finally for tonight, with "Cars", number 17 I think would be Henry Ford.

I had to look up LvdP to see who you meant, Vizzer. Not him, in any case.

Well done so far - 14 down and only 7 to go ...

Leaving us with one Spaniard, one Scot, one South American and four North Americans! Some extra audio clues on the way ...

No 7 George Dubbya? or Mickey Dolenz?

No 15 David McCallum? 

No 4 is driving me mad. I know I've seen that photo before, it's just there and I can't think of it. I swore I wasn't going to do another of these quizzes, and yet here I am. Couldn't resist.

16 looks just like Helen Mirren - Russian? But I can't believe that the distorted sound clue was Queen - Freddie sounds a bit hoarse.

Edit.  And when I glance up again I see there is no Russian in your list. Kindly disregard this post!

OK don't laugh and I know 16 looks like a sweet little girl, but from the clues I wonder if it isn't Ernest Hemingway .... the macho, big game hunter, fisherman, boxer and boozer.  Shocked

Chuffed about Ernest!  Smile 

Right .... number 11. How about Jorge Mario Bergoglio aka Pope Francis?


EDIT : Cancel that .... the clothes look to be from at least a generation earlier ...  and a better fit for the clues is ...

Final guess for 11, Pablo Picasso?

Well, of the three remaining:

The baby became very much the baby snatcher, the little vest boy became very much the t-shirt man and the cowboy when he grew up, at least according to one of the top labour guilds in the USA, was still very much a cowboy indeed when it came to industrial relations.

Not at all NH, but I just can't think who they are ..... and I have tried cheating too!  Shocked 

So this is a BUMP to get it some attention. Personally I'm waiting for inspiration (it does come ... rarely, but sometimes) or just for someone else to solve it. And so at the moment they ain't solved ... but they ain't forgotten.

That's an old broken quiz, Trike. Actually there's just number 2 left (and I'd forgotten about him). I'll start another quiz in a while and stick him in again as he's one of those few babies who, when you see the adult, you can actually see the resemblance Smile

Well it didn't seem to happen. A belated thanks to nordmann for keeping us amused with quizzes like this. Perhaps we can can come up with some other ideas too? Not that I am any good at them but I do like the research. Here's hoping! What about bits of paintings? Or houses/cars/boats of the famous? Just notions........

... well yes P ... but rather than just bemoaning that others haven't done something, you could always devise and post your own quiz, no? It doesn't have to be full of pics ... the old BBC Friday quizzes were just simple text, but were often damned hard.

I am, slowly, compiling one, ... and it does take some time, especially uploading images with my slow internet connection.
