Here is another URL game. Look at the partial picture and guess the celebrity to advance. This will probably be easy for some. Harder for the younger people unless they watch a lot of re-runs. lol

Here we go. vlc and jack are both busy right now.

Whoa, major roadblock at 3. Hmm.

Not paulnewman3, who else is famous for eyes?

Hi! The kitten hates me right now. It's scared to death so it won't play. :( So I'll have to play here. :)

Whoa! Stuck on 2. I thought it was roseanne barrnow after looking at it so long, I can't tell if it's a man or a woman

RBS
02-25-2008, 07:00:35
2 is a famous opry singer


Edit: wow, past midnight. Can't stay much longer. Hope the kitty calms down and gets used to its new home.

vlc5863
02-25-2008, 07:13:26
Hmmm.... opry singer. I'll google.

The kitten likes my daughter but every time i move it scadaddles.

EDIT: is it a man?

Whew got it!

Stuck on 3 with you RBS. It's in black and white so it tried paul newman, frank sinatra, james dean and montgomery clift

jack
02-25-2008, 21:51:27
I can't get 2 even with the clue :(

RBS
02-25-2008, 22:00:29

Bandmama01
02-25-2008, 22:19:11
Number 3 is

a wild and crazy guy!

RBS
02-25-2008, 22:23:18
thx bandmama, I see it of course after your post..lol. 4 is familiar, I am thinking the old westerns

jack
02-25-2008, 22:27:40
never took the price tag off of hat


Number 3 is

a wild and crazy guy!

Thank you both. Got 2 and 3 now.

My first thought was

Ernest Borgnine. Not correct though. Whoever it is they appear to have a lazy eye.

RBS
02-25-2008, 22:34:06
I don't think 4 had a stage name like Gabby Hayes, just a regular name. Not sure tho.

brainisdead
02-25-2008, 22:39:30
who the heck is number 1? and why is the square so damn huge for such a tiny image?

RBS
02-25-2008, 22:43:27
WKRP bombshell

jack
02-25-2008, 22:44:17
She was married to

Burt Reynolds for quite a while

RBS
02-25-2008, 22:48:45
I was right about 4 keep thinking cowboy theater

Toughest one so far because not as well known. Have to be older like me.


Anyone up to 10 yet? Who is that baby-faced actor?

jack
02-25-2008, 22:59:01
LOL I'm still on 4 :)

Bandmama01
02-25-2008, 23:02:45
Still on #4. I'm totally stumped. I've tried Gunsmoke, Bonanza. Is if farther back than that?

RBS
02-25-2008, 23:10:31
Thought he might still be alive but....

Oct 22, 2003

Back later, up to 12 now. Good luck.

brainisdead
02-25-2008, 23:20:34
Well I tried lori anderson but that didn't work.

Bandmama01
02-25-2008, 23:21:28
Thanks RBS. Wow, I never would have gotten that one. The things you can find with Google.


@brainisdead - check the spelling on her first name.

brainisdead
02-25-2008, 23:25:58
Darn Spelling!

who is number 6 then?
i actually knew 2 of them (so far!)

Bandmama01
02-25-2008, 23:43:49
#2 is

a older lady that was on HEE HAW


I'm stumped on number 8 and have to go. Good luck!

brainisdead
02-25-2008, 23:49:27
I'm up to 8 using clues you guys left here.
My clue for #4 is "Support Your Local Gunfighter" or Swifty Morgan.
Clue for #6 he's the unknown stuntman that makes eastwood look so fine ;-)
I had the feeling #8 was the current Bionic Woman but it seems not?

jack
02-26-2008, 00:21:04
I had the feeling #8 was the current Bionic Woman but it seems not?

She is

not a star. She got a U.S. president into some hot water in the 90s.

The man in 10 looks familiar, but I can't place him.

Kahnescanuck
02-26-2008, 01:12:07
Anyone have a hint for #10?

jack
02-26-2008, 01:17:15
I don't think anybody has gotten past it yet.

RBS
02-26-2008, 01:18:30
Think of some funny saxophone music (Yakkity Sax is the tune) and people running around in fast motion

up to 13, another one of just eyes

jack
02-26-2008, 01:20:32
OMG I knew he looked familiar. Thanks.

Okay I thought 11 was

Dennis Hopper or Martin Scorsese, but I guess I was wrong

RBS
02-26-2008, 01:28:36
Aaayyyy Mrs. C.

Come on up to 13, need lotsa help here.

Claim to fame - a ukulele and flowers from Adventure's country

Kahnescanuck
02-26-2008, 01:41:05
not getting 12, hmmm

RBS
02-26-2008, 01:42:00
just posted 12 above

Kahnescanuck
02-26-2008, 01:58:16
still not sure...

Thanks for the hints on 12, got it!

Now 13 is hard!!

jack
02-26-2008, 02:10:18
He shares the name of a character in A Christmas Carol

I have no idea on 13 RBS. These eye ones are very hard.

RBS
02-26-2008, 02:11:51
So far these don't work for 13
lloydbridges13, paulnewman13
johnnycarson13, vincentprice13

Maybe bandmama can help when she comes on, she nailed the first eye only back at 3.

About all I can do here is start talking and maybe ring a bell for someone else who is looking. Probably a very famous person since its just the eyes. Some crowsfeet showing. I would guess the person is grinning, smiling laughing. Eyes are looking so hard to the left, comedians dart eyes alot.

jack
02-26-2008, 02:16:06
The way 13 is cropped it kind of looks like E.T.s head. :)

RBS
02-26-2008, 02:21:00
LOL, yeah indeed just add the 14 vertebrae neck!

Kahnescanuck
02-26-2008, 02:26:49
maybe it's a woman with reeeally bad eyebrows...

LOL! RDS, I think we need some serious help!


I have an idea, lets go through all of Elizabeth Taylor's husbands
it's bound to be one of them!

RBS
02-26-2008, 02:34:36
sidcaesar13, eddiealbert13


Kahnes I am going to commit hari kari if it turns out to be a woman lol

vlc5863
02-26-2008, 02:40:29
Lol, I hope it's not a woman. Those are some bushy eyebrows. I don't have a clue.

Edit: Well maybe a clue is that it looks like he has blue eyes.

RBS
02-26-2008, 02:43:42
Hi vlc, we definitely need your tenacity for this one. We be stuck :yel:

Now I keep thinking of those publicity photos celebs would take and mail out by the thousands. They often struck an odd pose and looked sideways.

vlc5863
02-26-2008, 02:54:43
Afraid I won't be help on this one. I was way off #3.

Kahnescanuck
02-26-2008, 03:13:47
Do you think 13 could be one of the people in this link?
I'm starting with it, worth a try.

Comedians of the 20th century
http://www.wwwk.co.uk/people/comedians/index.htm

Ya, I tried quite a few of them, no luck, hope pennsteve comes on!

RBS
02-26-2008, 03:24:22
I tried about 15 of them. Good link, I thought some of them might hit. Now I am going to feel bad if its not a comedian. Maybe pennsteve (the creator) will come on and lets us know if we are headed in the right direction or need resteered.

vlc5863
02-26-2008, 03:31:10
I don't know whether to look in classic or modern.

RBS
02-26-2008, 03:32:49
Anybody know a police sketch artist? I am about ready to go to the yellow pages and call one.

@vlc. I lean toward classic, don't you?

vlc5863
02-26-2008, 03:40:26
Ok, im gonna go strictly with classical and blue eyes.

RBS
02-26-2008, 04:00:34
I see pennsteve has joined the party....help! Everybody pm him or something...make noise.

vlc5863
02-26-2008, 04:01:45
Darn! I thought I had it with Lloyd Bridges. Took me forever to remember his name.


Edit: pennsteve67 is here?! Thank heavens.

pennsteve67, we need a hint on 13 please.

pennsteve67
02-26-2008, 04:05:00
Wow. I thought 13 would be an EASY one. He was known for a certain show, but the hint I'm giving you is.......He was a psychic killer in a movie that had a bunch of "living" mannequins.

RBS
02-26-2008, 04:05:14
Yo pennsteve67, we have been stymied on 13 for an hour. Hint please!

pennsteve67
02-26-2008, 04:07:48
hehe. I gave you a hint above. ;)

Kahnescanuck
02-26-2008, 04:09:24
Thank the lord you came pennesteve, I almost had a brain hemorrage! movin on!

vlc5863
02-26-2008, 04:10:50
Got it. Thanks pennsteve.

pennsteve67
02-26-2008, 04:11:04
Thank the lord you came pennesteve, I almost had a brain hemorrage! movin on!

Oh, did you get it? I figured I would have to give a better clue. lol

vlc5863
02-26-2008, 04:14:19
Oh, no. 17 is another eye shot. :nailbite:

Your clue for 13 was a good one.

RBS
02-26-2008, 04:15:05
Got it. I had everybody looking for comedians. Sorry folks. Thanks pennsteve.

Up to 19 now and it should be easy. Who needs hints?

pennsteve67
02-26-2008, 04:16:34
Oh, no. 17 is another eye shot. :nailbite:

Your clue for 13 was a good one.


Wait until you get to 23. Its a mouth/chin shot. I figured it would be an easy one. I'll find out after someone gets there. lol

vlc5863
02-26-2008, 04:16:52
Thats ok RBS. I was looking for actors anyways. :)

Kahnescanuck
02-26-2008, 04:18:41
oh no, stuck on 16, I've seen him...aaah

vlc5863
02-26-2008, 04:21:49
17 wasn't too bad. Now on 19.

RBS
02-26-2008, 04:24:03
I have been misspelling 19 for years...learned something.

In Roman times his chariot would have been LIV

He answered to "Grandpa" and usually bailed out the family each episode with eye of newt or something

@pennsteve. Got 23 on first try but I am a fan of that genre.

More eyeballs at 25 friends.

You want me to do some 'splaining? Spelling is key.

Kahnescanuck
02-26-2008, 04:40:28
18? I feel dum dum :longface:


okay, on 20 now, I might just get this one...

RBS
02-26-2008, 04:42:15
somebody missing from picture...where is Bobby McGee?

vlc5863
02-26-2008, 04:51:51

vlc5863
02-26-2008, 04:53:53
Got 21!

Got to 25.

Got 25!

RBS
02-26-2008, 04:59:47
Too much make up on 25. Maybe she peddled it back in the day. What would that make her a Revlon girl or a Covergirl?

Kahnescanuck
02-26-2008, 05:01:19
okay, I crashed on 20. Know the face well, the name escapes me.

vlc5863
02-26-2008, 05:03:07
25 - You know her very well. She is always in the tabloids.

20 - batman tv series - feminine first name


- ----Need help on 26

RBS
02-26-2008, 05:04:42
Even older than the two grumpy old men

Thanks vlc, tabloids did it, on to 26

not johnritter, harrisonford or davidduchovny

not richardburton, marlon brando

vlc5863
02-26-2008, 05:22:16
26 - i have tried these richard moll, mike connors
I wish I knew how to copy and paste the half of his face to make it a whole face.

RBS
02-26-2008, 05:24:48
seems to me if we could symetrically superimpose the left side we see over to the right side we would have the whole face. And when I imagine that I don't see how it cannot be Richard Burton.


LOL: we both thought of the same thing. I think you can in Photoshop but I lost my copy in a computer crash years ago.

vlc5863
02-26-2008, 05:32:23
I managed to do it in paint. Took the pic and rotated it and added another. But I can't get them exactly together. And I still don't know who it is.

RBS
02-26-2008, 05:34:22
Me too, in paint. Mine came out like this...lol.

7154

vlc5863
02-26-2008, 05:35:25
lmao, mine came out EXACTLY like that.

edit: he has a very thin upper lip.

it's not john forsythe

RBS
02-26-2008, 05:41:49
New paint pic with skew angle...its scary

7155

vlc5863
02-26-2008, 05:44:28
Lol. Reminds me of Yul Brynner. I think pennsteve cut out the middle part of his forehead. Can you seperate them a little to make the mouth even?

Kahnescanuck
02-26-2008, 05:46:27
Here are two face recognition sites, they didn't work for me but might work for you!

OMG, Kahnes that is awesome, where did you find that site. It was like CSI but it didn't recognize my photo.

WAY TO COOL

pennsteve67
02-26-2008, 05:48:40
Well, I have to go to bed now. I'll check back tomorrow to see if anyone guessed it yet. Once you get it you will be hitting yourself. I didn't think this one would be so difficult. lol

vlc5863
02-26-2008, 05:51:23
You won't leave us a hint pennsteve?

Kahnescanuck
02-26-2008, 05:55:08
Ya those sites are cool, lots of fun seeing who you look like, good and bad lol!


On that pic I'm thinking of a host of a TV show, something like America's most wanted"

RBS
02-26-2008, 17:09:16
Something happened at 11pm my time and I lost GH so I went to bed. That was fun but I see pennsteve did NOT leave us a hint for 26 so still staring at that half head he says is supposed to be easy. GRRR.

Bandmama01
02-26-2008, 17:21:10
We are having a snow day in here, so my boys and I have been staring at that half a face all morning. We even took a pasted together whole face, and tried to put hair on it and still no luck. We are totally stumped.

RBS
02-26-2008, 17:27:31
You put hair on it! :rofl-smilie: I would love to see that!

My first attempt to splice him together in paint looked like two mr potato heads staring at each other.

jack
02-26-2008, 17:56:46
Could I have a hint for 24 please?

RBS
02-26-2008, 18:04:38

hmm I hadn't considered musicians but you are right...a little broodiness comes through.

vlc5863
02-26-2008, 20:42:32
Well, it's not Dan Rather. I keep thinking of a certain character actor that I can't remember the name of or what he was in. Grrrrrr.......

RBS
02-26-2008, 20:59:22
tonight we hogtie pennsteve67 until we wrestle a clue out of him?

vlc5863
02-27-2008, 00:28:32
Most definitely.

brainisdead
02-27-2008, 00:40:42
Huge hint on #14 please?
I haven't even got a guess for her.
That hint for 13 was brilliant btw, google got it 1st go.

vlc5863
02-27-2008, 00:49:18
Hi brainisdead she was in The Facts of Life

jack
02-27-2008, 00:51:15
Not to be confused with the one in the Witch Project :)

RBS
02-27-2008, 00:56:17
I wondered why pennsteve included her, maybe he has/had a crush on her.

jack
02-27-2008, 01:02:28
I wish he would give a clue on 23.

vlc5863
02-27-2008, 01:06:42
You mean 26 Jack? Lol, Jack is losing it............

RBS
02-27-2008, 01:08:48
Half of an old famous comedy duo. He rubbed his chin alot


Edit: Did you mean 23 Jack, or 26?

jack
02-27-2008, 01:10:31
Oops 26. You're the one that gave me a hint for 24 :)

brainisdead
02-27-2008, 01:12:23
Great clues folks! Stuck on #21.
how could you not instantly get 16? Even I, a mere Brit knew him ;-)

RBS
02-27-2008, 01:13:03
Ahh, oh well maybe somebody will stumble upon it and need it tho its way out of order. I feel like part of a stakeout team ready to ambush pennsteve the second he gets here. Pretty much given up staring at the half-head potato shape. Brain hurts.

vlc5863
02-27-2008, 01:20:49
21 - He was one of the funniest tv characters ever. A dog can't get struck by lightning. you know why? 'Cause he's too close to the ground. See, lightning strikes tall things. Now if they were giraffes out there in the field, now then we'd have trouble. (Reassuring Opie after releasing a group of dogs to the countryside as a thunderstorm approaches)

brainisdead
02-27-2008, 01:30:20
Never heard of him or the show.
Who the frell is #25?
I thought it was Morgan Fairchild?

Bandmama01
02-27-2008, 01:35:31
My kids and I are here on the stakeout too. We're tired of staring at this picture. We should probably go find something to do, but we won't be able to rest until we know who this is. Pennsteve - we need you!


@brainisdead - #25 isa hotel heiress who is always in the tabloids

vlc5863
02-27-2008, 01:35:37
25 - Well, she is basically a socialite that spent time in jail who has parents that own hotels.

26 - EDIT: I could swear 26 is Carroll Oconnor. Look at this http://cache.viewimages.com/xc/3241117.jpg?v=1&c=ViewImages&k=2&d=DCB332A6E7C66BD34397B08FC14B9FD3A55A1E4F32AD3138

But it wont take his name.

EDIT: I GOT IT!!!!!!!!!! pennsteve misspelled the answer for 26!

brainisdead
02-27-2008, 01:42:28
Looks NOTHING like her at all.
We all stuck on #26 then?
(just made a list of the answers up to now anyway as my browser never keeps settings)

vlc5863
02-27-2008, 01:46:06
Done!

RBS
02-27-2008, 01:46:56
Whaaaaaat? You got 26?

brainisdead
02-27-2008, 01:47:02
You got #26? Hint us up vlc?
BTW, vlc, are you an Oddpawner? That nick looks SUPER familiar ;-)

vlc5863
02-27-2008, 01:48:19
26 - look at post 113. Spell the first name with only five letters.

Yes, brainisdead. I played OddPawn. I just changed my avatar.

brainisdead
02-27-2008, 01:51:11
looks like pennsteve mis-spelt the name then?
Who the heck is 27? its not woss her face from Bewitched is it?
(that'll be a yes then!)
Edit:- FINISHED!

Go Me, i didn't even know half of them!

Bandmama01
02-27-2008, 01:52:21
vic5863 - I agree. We think that is the picture that pennsteve used. I guessed this last night. But, I haven't been able to figure out how he spelled it yet.

jack
02-27-2008, 01:53:24
You may want to put that in a spoiler. Yes it is :)

RBS
02-27-2008, 01:53:45

Oops. Guess I did misspell it. Sorry about that. I don't do that often. I guess it happens when you are making a game quickly and you are tired. lol

I'm off work today. I think I'll work on another one today.

Had a tooth pulled on tuesday. Thats the reason I wasnt feeling good on the weekend. Its still healing, hurts some. Once I'm completely out of pain and can concentrate I'll make another game. It's slowly healing so hopefully on saturday I can get around to making something. ;)

Am stuck on 13. Tried everyone from the cast of Psychic Killer. Googled it, like someone said earlier, but no luck. Help!!
