RE: WHO IS THIS


No flys on you Sheba biggrin I thought it might have been a bit harder over to you.

 

Alan Walbridge Ladd (September 3, 1913  January 29, 1964) was an American actor and film and television producer. Ladd found success in film in the 1940s and early 1950s, particularly in Westerns such as Shane (1953) and in films noir. He was often paired with Veronica Lake in noirish films such as This Gun for Hire (1942), The Glass Key (1942) and The Blue Dahlia (1946).

His other notable credits include Two Years Before the Mast (1946), Whispering Smith, his first Western and color film, (1948) and The Great Gatsby (1949). His popularity diminished in the late 1950s, though he continued to appear in popular films, including his first supporting role since This Gun for Hire in the smash hit The Carpetbaggers (1963), until his accidental death due to a lethal combination of alcohol, a barbiturate, and two tranquilizers.

Thanks Sandy.  Lets see who we can find this time.  Should be pretty easy, considering the clues right in front of your eyes.  Only problem at the moment, is that I can't remember his name.  I'll know it when I see it though.  biggrinbiggrinbiggrin

Oh dear I cheated here.
But then again the answer I got could be way off.
Google told me - Oscar Leonard Carl Pistorius, is that correct?
Googles pic was a tad different to the features shown here.

The answer you got is correct Mobi.  Just hope you didn't use Facial recognition for identification.  Wouldn't be any point in having the Game at all, if we all did that.

Who do you have for us this time ?

 

 Oscar Leonard Carl Pistorius is a South African former professional sprinter and convicted murderer. Both of Pistorius' feet had been amputated when he was 11 months old due to a congenital defect. He was born missing the outside of both feet and both fibulae. Pistorius ran in both non-disabled sprint events and in sprint events for below-knee amputees. He was the tenth athlete to compete at both the Paralympic Games and Olympic Games.

I looked at the green and gold and googled "Australian blade runner" and Pistorius was there (may he rot in his cell he got off light)

Yes I know, it's just before I knew who he was I was tricked by the similar colours into thinking he was an Australian so I searched for "Australian Blade runner"

That's right they can keep him locked up. First he got 6 years and then they extended it to 13 but that is still a light sentence for what he did.

Howdy all, NO I did not use facial recognition, THAT WOULD BE WORSE THAN DRUG CHEATING!

Being an ex Track and field athlete from the 1960's and 70's I still keep an active interest in that sphere. How I wish I could just run now!!!!

Thus the South African Uniform, the 2 blades as they are called, made me look up Disabled Athletes though and I do feel that I did have an advantage there. So I also added the field of South African to my search.

PLUS the pic shown has a profile where as the google stuff has a full facial (nearly) view.

Any way I am very happy to hand over the turn to another as I have had a few "wins" thus far in this very interesting and fantastically wide spread game.

I would like to nominate either Cadpete or Relax-n for a go now, plus I have to get off quick for a Med Appt as well so would be at least tomorrow before I got to post another pic.

Cheers - Ian

Mobi Condo you basically did a google search that's OK that's what we all do if we can't recognise the person. When it goes stale the poster gives a clue and then we Google again

 Thanks for that Sandy.   Mobi, the reason I posted that comment, was that some-one did use it a long time ago.  When you said you had "cheated", I thought I'd better say something,

just in case.   That person is still with us, but doesn't play the Game anymore.  Most of us, if not all felt the same as you.  biggrinbiggrinbiggrin 

 As Sandy says, normal Googling is fine.  Otherwise we'd be stuck sometimes for weeks, on the one subject. 

Cheers,

Sheba.

Thanks to all for advice and so on. It IS a most enjoyable interaction to have on a forum.

Hope the recent one is NOT to hard, I guess most of us will know of this chap.

The Dapper appearance deceived me when I was looking up some targets to add to a folder of famous people.

Cheers Ian

All I can think at the moment, is that he's a Politician.

With the clues I've studied, I believe it might be a young Joe Biden...

You've got him BG over to you for a pic.

Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. (/rbnt badn/;[1] born November 20, 1942) is an American politician who served as the 47th vice president of the United States from 2009 to 2017. A member of the Democratic Party, he served as a United States Senator for Delaware from 1973 to 2009. Biden is the Democratic presidential nominee for the 2020 election, running against the incumbent, Donald Trump.[2]

Biden was raised in Scranton, Pennsylvania, and New Castle County, Delaware. He studied at the University of Delaware before receiving his law degree from Syracuse University.[3] He became a lawyer in 1969 and was elected to the New Castle County Council in 1970. He was elected to the U.S. Senate from Delaware in 1972, becoming the sixth-youngest senator in American history. Biden was a longtime member and eventually chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. He opposed the Gulf War in 1991 but supported the expansion of the NATO alliance into Eastern Europe and its intervention in the Yugoslav Wars of the 1990s. He supported the resolution authorizing the Iraq War in 2002 but opposed the surge of U.S. troops in 2007. He also served as chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee from 1987 to 1995, dealing with issues related to drug policy, crime prevention, and civil liberties. Biden led the efforts to pass the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act and the Violence Against Women Act, and oversaw the contentious U.S. Supreme Court nominations of Robert Bork and Clarence Thomas. Biden ran unsuccessfully for the Democratic presidential nomination in 1988 and 2008.

Biden was reelected six times to the U.S. Senate and was the fourth-most senior senator when he resigned after winning the vice presidency alongside Barack Obama in the 2008 presidential election.[4] Obama and Biden were reelected in 2012. As Vice President, Biden oversaw infrastructure spending in 2009 to counteract the Great Recession. His negotiations with congressional Republicans helped the Obama administration pass legislation including the 2010 Tax Relief Act, which resolved a taxation deadlock; the Budget Control Act of 2011, which resolved a debt ceiling crisis; and the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012, which addressed the impending fiscal cliff. In foreign policy, Biden led the efforts to pass the United StatesRussia New START treaty; supported military intervention in Libya, and helped formulate U.S. policy toward Iraq through the withdrawal of U.S. troops in 2011. Following the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, Biden led the Gun Violence Task Force, created to address the causes of gun violence in the United States.[5]

In October 2015, Biden announced that he would not seek the presidency in the 2016 election. In January 2017, Obama awarded Biden the Presidential Medal of Freedom with distinction.[6] Biden announced his 2020 candidacy for president on April 25, 2019, and in June 2020, he met the 1,991-delegate threshold needed to secure the Democratic Party's nomination.[7] On August 11, 2020, Biden announced U.S. Senator Kamala Harris as his running mate in the 2020 presidential election.
