Movie Check:

What famous movie did this song appear in? Try to answer without using a search engine.

My Sister is on TV!

My sister sent me this link to a video she appeared in. Yes, it's a news story about a horrific crime, but it was still nice to see her. She pops in at the 1:40 mark pushing a stroller.

If the video doesn't work, this is the direct link:

Guess That Grave #3

One more from the first batch of pictures I took. This person was very famous in her time, but now has somewhat faded into obscurity.

*as always, click to embiggen*

And also as always, your clues.

1. Most of the time, she knew what you did for a living.

2. She spoke for The Great White Way.

3. Oh no! Did she know too much about who killed JFK?

Guess That Grave #2 Redux

ETA: And Michelle M. gets it correct!

I forgot I still had this picture sitting in my files. I thought I'd try it again as the original posting was three days before Christmas, perhaps not the best time for it.

3 Clues:

1. Frances was his wife.

2. An American flag is usually found by his grave. (Such as is in the picture)

3. He was a dandy.

N.B. The picture can be clicked on to embiggen.
