The Secret Movie Star Game #4

The object of this game is to solve the identity of the secret movie star whose name is spelled vertically in the red boxes. To do that, you must fill in the horizontal rows with names of other famous stars based on the cryptic clues below. Here are some helpful hints to playing:

- There is no connection between the stars in the horizontal rows and the secret star in the red vertical column.

- A star may be identified by his/her first or last name. For example, one of the clues in a previous game was was "June Allyson's husband" and the answer was "Dick" (as in Dick Powell).

- The object of the game is to guess the secret star, so I won't tell you if you got one of the clues correct. Still, you're encouraged to post them and help out one another...but only if you want to!

If no one guesses the Secret Star by on Tuesday night, I'll post the solution. This may be the last edition of the Secret Movie Star Game, so good luck.

1. Her sister had scenes with a smart pig

2. Character actor who had a starring role as private eye opposite Leslie Caron

3. Middle name of actress who starred with Brando and Grant

4. Two-time Best Actress winner

5. The doctor’s friend in big-budget musical flop

6. Mom wrote books, Dad was a big star, and sister was a nanny

7. Barry Manilow’s one-time acting coach

8. One of the owners of the Shiloh


  1. My guess for the star is STANWYCK.

    1. _s_
    2. Oates
    3. Marie
    4. Rainer
    5. Newley
    6. Hayley
    7. Foch
    8. Bickford

  2. Very impressive, toto! In the words of Happy Hogan, you are absolutely correct! I thought this was pretty hard, but one cannot underestimate the brain power of Cafe readers. As for clue #1, the piggy's initials were AZ.

  3. I think you are referring to Arnold Ziffel from "Green Acres" but Eva's sister would be Zsa Zsa and that is what threw me off since there were only three letters.

  4. I was (lamely) going for just ZSA.
