I thought I'd try something different - putting the emphasis on people, not the cars.

Fastest lap was about 2:02.




















I hope he's driving.

Theodore Bikel was an Austrian-American actor, folk singer, and political activist. His stage debut was in Tel Aviv, his London stage debut was in 1948 and New York in 1955. He was recognized and recorded folk singer and guitarist. In 1959 he co-founded the Newport Folk Festival, and created the role of Captain von Trapp opposite Mary Martin as Maria in the original Broadway production of The Sound of Music. In 1969 Bikel began acting and singing on stage as Tevye in the musical Fiddler on the Roof, a role he performed more often than any other actor to date. Film/TV credits include the Twilight Zone, The Sound of Music, and Columbo in which he played a Mensa genius.


John Bleifer was an actor from the tail-end of the silent-film era, and lasted through the mid-1980s. Featured roles in the 1930's included Night Alarm, Les MisÚrables, Charlie Chan at Monte Carlo, and Mr. Moto Takes a Vacation. The 1940's saw him in The Mark of Zorro, Waterfront, and Smugglers' Cove. He later appeared on TV's I Love Lucy, The Count of Monte Cristo, The Adventures of Jim Bowie, Shirley Temple's Storybook, Perry Mason, Peter Gunn, and Rawhide. Later films included WC Fields and Me, FIST, The Frisco Kid, and finally 1986's Inside Out.

The band emigrated to the US and appeared in two early sound musicals - Jack White and His Montrealers, and King of Jazz (1930). Blue left the band to be a comedian, portraying a bald-headed dumb-bell with a goofy expression. His films included It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World; The Russians Are Coming, the Russians Are Coming; The Busy Body; A Guide for the Married Man; and Where Were You When the Lights Went Out?

Forest Lawn, Hollywood.

Billy West was an actor, producer, and writer of the 1910s, 20s, and 30s. He was one of the more well-known and successful imitators of Charlie Chaplin's "Tramp" character, until developing his own. Oliver Hardy frequently appeared with him.


Roy Williams started working with Walt Disney on 1925 in the animation and writing department, and he eventually began storyboarding the upcoming Mickey Mouse Club episodes. Disney selected him to be the co-host of the show. He was known as Moose Williams on his highschool football team.


Frances Wayne was an American jazz singer. In her teens in New York City she sang in a group fronted by her brother, saxophonist Nick Jerret. Early in the 1940s she recorded with Charlie Barnet's big band, and in 1943 sang with Woody Herman's band. In 1944 she married Neal Hefti, who played trumpet and arranged material for Herman. Hefti formed his own big band in 1947, and Wayne soloed in this ensemble as well. She sang with Hefti into the 1950s, and later with smaller ensembles, which featured Hank Jones, Milt Hinton, Jerome Richardson, Richie Kamuca, John LaPorta, Billy Bauer, and Al Cohn.

I had a 5D (now a 6D and 70D). I would say "no" to that. She needs a used Pentax and 18-55 (17-70 would be better). She needs not worry about crop factor, which is not a difficult concept anyway. She needs a bit of flexibility, and most of the tech available. She needs to learn composition above anything else, with the ability to compare wide and tele options. Exposure compensation would be second. The rest will follow if she has interest.

Golden Gate National, San Bruno, CA.

Percy Kilbride was a long-faced character actor, mostly playing country hicks. He is most memorable as Pa Kettle in the Ma and Pa Kettle series of films. His film debut was as Jakey in White Woman (1933), a Pre-Code film starring Carole Lombard. He was also in Jack Benny's film, George Washington Slept Here in 1942. In 1947, he and Marjorie Main appeared in The Egg and I, as the folksy Kettle neighbors of stars Fred MacMurray and Claudette Colbert, which led to the spinoff series of Ma and Pa Kettle films.


Chester Nimitz was a fleet admiral of the US Navy and played a major role in the naval history of WW II as Commander in Chief of the US Pacific Fleet and CiC of Pacific Ocean Areas. In 1907 as an ensign, he was commanding a destroyer which ran aground in mud banks, for which he was court-martialed. Nimitz was the leading US Navy authority on submarines and oversaw the conversion of submarines from gasoline to diesel, and later acquired approval to build the world's first nuclear-powered submarine, the USS Nautilus. He was the last surviving US fleet admiral. The USS Nimitz aircraft carrier was named after him.


Raymond Spruance was a US Navy admiral in World War II and commanded US forces in two significant naval battles in the Pacific Theater - the Battle of Midway and the Battle of the Philippine Sea. Midway was the first major victory for the US over Japan and is considered a turning point in the Pacific war. Spruance succeeded Fleet Admiral Chester Nimitz as Commander in Chief, US Pacific Fleet and Pacific Ocean Areas in November 1945. After the war, Spruance was appointed President of the Naval War College, and later served as American ambassador to the Philippines.
