Is "Who Am I" Louis Jourdan, movie with Ethel Barrymore "The Paradine Case?
If so, is #5 "Can-Can"?

#6 The Johnny Carson Tonight Show and The Jack Benny Program.
Can't make the connections in the questions that follow -- frustration!

Hi Becks, you are absolutely right about Louis Jourdan and The Paradine Case. Also about Can-Can....good job!

You also got part of #6 right....the Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson was what I was looking for, although it's true that the same person who produced the Tonight Show did produce 44 episodes of the Jack Benny Show as well. Can you give his name?

Eve, thanks for stopping by!

You are right on all counts (as usual)!

I purposely left Jack Nicholson and Milly Perkins off the supporting cast list on the Which Film am I? question, but apparently it was too easy anyway, LOL!

Is #7 Dick Carson, Johnnie's brother and The Merv Griffin Show?
#9 Ed McMahon?

Paul 2 said...

Good work, Becks! You're getting better at this, LOL!

Sorry for the delay in my response to your post, beelzabub!

You're right! #6 is Fred De Cordova and #10 is Who Do You Trust?, aka Do You Trust Your Wife? (that was the first title)!
