OK, we’re back to being Mr. Nice Chaps this week. (No more Buddy Greco’s to baffle you.)
Hello, everybody. Joe Morella and Frank Segers, your classic movie guys, with another of our Monday “name-the-stars” challenges featuring some of the candid photos in our collection.
We’ve written a lot about the woman in the top shot and the fellow in the bottom photo. So naming them should not be difficult.
Here’s a giant hint. Each of the couples pictured above had torrid affairs while making a film together. One eventually married. The other didn’t. Both couples made subsequent films together.
To make the challenge this time at least minimally testing, we’d like you to not only name the couples but also the principal film in which they were costarred.
As the French say, bonne chance.
As for the identity of last Monday’s mystery “third woman,” if you named Harriet Hilliard, you win a huge prize (again, don’t know what that would be). Harriet adopted a new surname when she married bandleader Ozzie Nelson. She was the band’s singer.
Both Nelsons (along with David and Ricky too) became household names as the stars of the long-running family tv sitcom, The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet.
