The BBHQ Newsletter

First name:



Below is an excerpt of a screen test for a proposed bio-pic movie. This version never made it to the silver screen, though the movie was eventually made. Every boomer (and our parents) would recognize both the actor and the character being portrayed.

The actor is way out of place here. We never saw him/her in a costume like this. But there is something about his/her lips and eyes that gives it away. And perhaps the voice, too.

The Contest:

Name the actor and the character being portrayed.

The Prize:

The prize.... was... a copy of our e-book on midlife crisis to the first two newsletter subscribers who nailed it.

But, sign up and stick with us. We’ll announce a new contest in our newsletter soon.

Opps... this contest is officially over. That means we have reached our quota of winners. But.... whatdda’ you have to lose? Come on; play along.

OK... what is the name (first and last) of the character being portrayed?

And the name (first and last) of the actor.

We need your name and e-mail address, too.

Your name:
