Check out the note I added under 1924 in the Actors section!
And, as I found out, there were a few more people I should have included. See if you can figure out their names - ok, *I* certainly didn't recognize most of the names without the film references:

A one-time "Star Trek" 1968 actress
A Jules Verne "captain"
A TV director of "Lois and Clark"
A producer of "The Big Chill"
A well-known game show host

Of course, I'll add them in July.
