    Nice Quiz, Diane. Great answers, GB.

    1. The guy with Martin Milner appears to be Kent McCord. That name
    rings a bell with me. Or should I say, it strikes a chord?

    4. Mannix was Mike Connors, I think. Gordon says Gail Fisher
    is the actress.

    7. James Garner is with James Whitmore Jr. Doesn't look much
    like his father in that pic.

    9. That schoolhouse looks very much like the grade school I went to.
    It was also a high school earlier. My mother was graduated from it.
    Now it is gone. Torn down in the name of progress. The fat man in
    front of it was radio's star of Gunsmoke, William Conrad.

    10. Gordon says that's Honey West that Anne Francis is portraying.
    I say the cat is an ocelot.

    Have to rush off.

    Rock, Yep you got 'em all. I would have never thought of Mike Connor's name. I drew a blank. And Michael Douglas has enough hair for 4 people!

    I didn't know there was a James Whitmore Jr. I always liked Sr. though.

    We watched Bruce Willis in Moonlighting every week, one of our favorite shows. It had lame stories but I enjoyed the banter between Bruce and Cybill Shepherd. I think their characters were named David and Madeline?

    6) Telly Savalas as Kojak

    Thanks for posting the game, Diane.

    As to Columbo, I believe his first name was Lieutenant. Wasn't his last name
    "The gem of the ocean"?

    Just looked it up, and according to Universal, it was Frank Columbo. Doesn't ring any bells for me. GB

    Re: Columbo, I read a site that said no first name ever appeared in the script. Also
    found a site where folks were responding to the question. Somebody said his name
    was Frank.

    Guess it's a good thing it's not a question on Jeopardy where it would matter.
    Even then it wouldn't mater unless you were the one who had to respond. Right?

    Rock, LOL Yep it would make a good Jeopardy question! :)

    GB, the name Frank doesn't ring any bells for me either.

    I was talking with Kevin this morning about oldies TV. And I mentioned Columbo. He said he remembered hearing the name "Frank" -- but it was on the TV show "Mrs. Columbo." ????

    Never heard of that show. According to Wiki, it starred Kate Mulgrew, and was canceled after 13 episodes.

    Just a bit of trivia. :)

    I was reading some book by Tony Randall. Mighta been his joke book: "Which
    Reminds Me". Anyhoo some fan came up to him and started talking about Tony's
    various projects. Tony was flattered. He asked, "How is it you know so much
    about my career?"

    "Oh," said the guy. "I'm good at trivia."
