I like this one. I saw it on QI, a British panel tv show. Quite interesting.

That's a quite interesting one. What's QI about?

Just----WOW! It's Wallace Beery's 133rd birthday, so here's a picture of him and wife Gloria Swanson. The wow is for Miss Gloria. She is about 17 here. I almost didn't believe it was her!

How about that! Yes, I don't think I would have recognized her, unless I looked close at the eyes for awhile.

I'm sorry I didn't answer sooner! I'd planned on putting up a clip, because it's hard to explain, and I forgot.
QI stands for quite interesting. It's a British panel show where they talk about facts. It has comedy actors and stand up comedians on the panel, different people every time, except for Alan Davies who has been there for every episode of its 15 years and still running. It originally was hosted by Stephen Fry, but it now has a woman who was a panelist occasionally, and holds the show together very well. Here is a montage of clips when Stephen was host.

This photo of Theda Bara for The Soul of Buddha (1918) is now my phone background.

Wow, that is one cool phone background!

QI looks pretty funny. I liked the bit about the Acropolis and Parthenon. :lol:

Yeah, I was laughing, too! They're hilarious.

You can tell Ann Pennington's pride and joy was her long hair - I don't believe she ever bobbed it!
