WHO IS THIS


Yes, using technology or face recognition has been discussed here several times, and I agree it is unfair to other players. I am lucky to be able to identify quite a few from the pictures quoted, particularly older people. Perhaps that comes down to my young age !!! biggrinbiggrinbiggrin Perhaps John I should have referred to you as our Cryptic Adviser !!  I must admit Prince Rainier had me baffled !!

This is an easy one, American Actor Jack Palance...


Gday...

I follow each face as posted, and like to watch the progress.

I refrain from identifying the face as I am able to fairly quickly identify - but I feel it unfair that I can use technology to identify.

Good to watch and guess the names though OH and provide a cryptic clue every now and again.

Cheers - John


 Hi John I can use the same technology to identify the face but I don't because it would spoil the game I just use a Google search and try to use the clues. You could do the same and participate in the game.

Sorry Sandy.  Cadpete has it.

 

Arthur Bowden Askey, CBE (6 June 1900  16 November 1982) was an English comedian and actor. Askey's humour owed much to the playfulness of the characters he portrayed, his improvisation, and his use of catchphrases, which included "Hello playmates!", "I thank you" (pronounced "Ay-Thang-Yaw"), and "Before your very eyes".
