Can you link the page? 

 

BTW actress Doris Merrick has died at 100 according to edits (which seem genuine) on her Wiki page. 


Confused by this one. Lord Heath (normally reliable) say she did die in November.

Yet here is an article from her local press with an interview and write up on her, dated 26th December 2019.

Ummm?

Hit #2 for me. She's also the one who told Christopher Walken to change his name. He used to go by his real name Ronnie Walken.

Admittedly, it's hard to forget about Charlie's Angels.  I suppose, regarding Scooby Doo, you could've responded 'Where are you?"

True. Bah, and I'd have gotten away with it too, if not for you meddling deadpoolers... :D

 

I'd like to thank everyone for not picking him. If the likely QOs come in, that's 31 picks in 30 days. TMIB's debut didn't have 31 hits till March!
