Here's the last of my Time series. I hope you can recognize many of the people. I tried to pick familiar names, but I know putting a name to a face is different. Try the other decades (2000s, 90s, 80s, 70s, 60s, 50s, or 40s), if you liked this or want a more current challenge. Thanks to all for playing and for all the comments along the way.

Love it, as always. Though I'd suggest a note that the two people in the photo in the bottom row are characters, as opposed to real people or actors (I looked at it and thought, "Well, it *looks* like Alice in Wonderland", but didn't try it).
Jan 12th, 2011 at 16:33 GMT
I don't think I've ever seen Dali with a moustache so short. The whole series of quizzes has been a lot of fun!
Jan 12th, 2011 at 17:44 GMT
Really good series !
Jan 12th, 2011 at 18:41 GMT
I loved the series, even if I got increasingly worse. Never heard of some of them, nevermind, they're in the minority. Double headslap though for not getting our own Marlene!

I assume Welles is in costume? Faulkner and Ford looked so familiar; couldn't put my finger on them!!
Jan 13th, 2011 at 00:37 GMT
Anyone can tell it's the King of Hearts and Alice. I automatically assumed you were asking for the names of the actors dressed like them in the picture. That is, actors who are associated with the 20's or 30's, as opposed to the characters, who really aren't. Dirty trick.
Jan 13th, 2011 at 01:40 GMT
@Tahan and @fishmonkeyfrog - The name of the actor and actress are acceptable answers for King of Hearts and Alice (Alec Francis and Charlotte Henry), although they are not well known. The film from 1933 starred Cary Grant, Gary Cooper and W.C. Fields. I wasn't trying to be tricky, since I had several fictional characters on my other quizzes (Big Bird, Harry Potter, Darth Vader, Superman, etc.)
Jan 13th, 2011 at 16:28 GMT
I'm surprised I got so many, but really it was only because I tried every name I remembered hearing from Titanic and Boardwalk Empire. Annoyed at some I missed, though. Bravo!
Jan 13th, 2011 at 21:57 GMT
Who is Welles portraying in that picture?
Jan 14th, 2011 at 01:12 GMT
Who else thought Princess Elizabeth was Shirley Temple?
Jan 14th, 2011 at 02:21 GMT
Could have sworn Irving Berlin was Mr Bean.

I can't see the last column on the right at all, & the next to the last is cut in half. Any ideas about what I can do to fix this?
Jan 14th, 2011 at 23:21 GMT
@steeltown - Are you using Internet Explorer? If so, try using a different browser like Firefox or Google Chrome. Thanks for trying to play.
Jan 16th, 2011 at 01:53 GMT
Yes, Googlebird, I'm using IE-- but I fixed it by hitting the compatibility view button. DUH. Dandy quiz--- I've enjoyed them all.
Jan 16th, 2011 at 03:56 GMT
@steeltown - Tell me where or how to find the compatibility view button. So many folks have trouble viewing images with IE, but I didn't know there was a way to fix it.
Jan 17th, 2011 at 05:38 GMT
It's on the Tools menu of IE. You can add it to your toolbar if you want. The symbol is a torn paper.
Jan 17th, 2011 at 16:21 GMT
I've really enjoyed this series of quizzes, and I'm sorry that you've run of of Time.
Jan 20th, 2011 at 06:59 GMT
What I've been doing when the last column gets cut off is copy and paste the picture to a word document.
Jan 26th, 2011 at 09:45 GMT
Oh dear, I got 3.
Mar 9th, 2011 at 04:06 GMT
I really don't think that is Orville Wright. Are you sure??
Mar 9th, 2011 at 04:08 GMT
It IS Orville Wright - gosh it doesn't look like him at all!
Mar 9th, 2011 at 06:54 GMT
For Dionne quintuplets, I think you need to add "Dionne quintuplets" as an alternate answer. I typed "Dion quintuplets" at first, then added the extra letters (to spell it Dionne) and it didn't accept the answer. Good quiz and nice variety of faces.
Mar 12th, 2011 at 21:50 GMT
I kept looking at Henry Ford and thinking he was Jack Kevorkian.

White people, white people everywhere.

Like it, but I would suggest having the answer field in terms of columns, not rows. Since Sporcle organizes them into columns anyway, it's difficult to quickly look at the answer field and correlate which ones you're missing. Good mix, I like it!

Vivian Leigh looks a lot like Demi Moore?
Oct 29th, 2012 at 20:56 GMT
Joyce had seen better days (hopefully).
Oct 29th, 2012 at 21:03 GMT
Vivian also looks a lot like Jean Simmons. And we had some decent-looking prezzes.
Oct 29th, 2012 at 21:23 GMT
@Googlebird: On behalf of all Sporcle players, I'd like to thank you for this set of quizzes, and I'm sorry you've run out of Time.
Oct 29th, 2012 at 21:28 GMT
@rockgolf - Thanks. Look for the 2010s version in about 7 or 8 years!
Oct 29th, 2012 at 21:29 GMT
I'm surprised so few people got the Dionne Quintuplets. I guess they just seem incredibly famous to me because I grew up near where they were born and their original home is a museum there.
Oct 29th, 2012 at 21:48 GMT
I thought the queen was Shirley Temple. I think she's the only one still alive.
Oct 29th, 2012 at 22:05 GMT
@cocky, I think a couple of the Dionne quints are still alive. I don't get the king of hearts and Alice--everyone else is an actual person, no?
Oct 29th, 2012 at 22:13 GMT
I think the King of Hearts and Alice was a misleading answer--all the others are real people so I was trying to figure out who played the part of Alice in a movie--gave Shirley Temple a shot as I could not really see the picture well.
Oct 29th, 2012 at 23:14 GMT
I feel the same as fakeinanehiker, but about the Orson Welles pic. I see two comment questions about it but no response. How did 5.8% of us know who he was when he's diguised as an old man? (he was 24 in 1939)
Oct 29th, 2012 at 23:38 GMT
I wasn't trying to be misleading with the King of Hearts and Alice. The film "Alice in Wonderland" was released in 1933. Other TIME covers have featured fictional characters like Charlie Brown, Big Bird, Harry Potter, and Spiderman.
Oct 30th, 2012 at 00:26 GMT
Yes, two of the Dionnes are still alive, they are 78.
Oct 30th, 2012 at 01:54 GMT
geez Herbert Hoover sure does look a lot like Newt Gingrich.
Oct 30th, 2012 at 03:14 GMT
King of hearts and Alice... I see your point about the movie, but everyone else is real.
