Thanks DickO.

Who is this well known Australian? The early photo does not indicate his various exploits since. A few hints there maybe.

Time for another clue.

How about a more recent photo of the person. Possibly a bit more recognisable for people.

Edit: Hope the image comes visible for those interested.

Yes, DickO.  It is Dick Smith. I thought helicopter pilot photo would really help.  Once he lost that real youngster look, he always seems to look like a Dick Smith in all his photos.  In 1983, I was holidaying on Heron Island and Dick Smith arrived in his helicopter.  He was shown around by island as treated as a dignitary.  I was surprised how small the helicopter was.

Richard Harold Smith AC FRSA(born 18 March 1944) is an Australian entrepreneur and aviator.[1] He is the founder of Dick Smith ElectronicsAustralian Geographic and Dick Smith Foods. Smith has had a long interest in aviation and holds a number of world records in the field. A major philanthropist, he supports a number of charities and conservation efforts.

In 2015, he was awarded the Companion of the Order of Australia.[3]He is a fellow of the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry.

 

 

Who will have for us next?

Hi BG,

Looks like Anthony Newley again.

Johnny Weissmuller, it is, Stew.  I remember him as Jungle Jim, too, from early TV days.

Someone else for us now?

 

Johnny Weissmuller:

Johnny Weissmuller (/wasmlr/; born Johann Peter Weißmüller[asml]; June 2, 1904 January 20, 1984) was an American Olympic swimmer, water polo player and actor. He was known for having one of the best competitive swimming records of the 20th century. He set world records alongside winning five gold medals in the Olympics.[3] He won the 100m freestyle and the 4 × 200 m relay team event in the 1924 Summer Olympics in Paris and the 1928 Summer Olympics in Amsterdam. Weissmuller also won gold in the 400m freestyle, as well as a bronze medal in the water polo competition in Paris.[4][5]

Following his retirement from swimming, Weissmuller played Edgar Rice BurroughsTarzan in twelve feature films from 1932 to 1948; six were produced by MGM, and six additional films by RKO. Weissmuller went on to star in sixteen Jungle Jimmovies over an eight year period, then filmed 26 additional half-hour episodes of the Jungle Jim TV series.
