Can you match these classic TV stars with their obscure movie roles?

Only a cinematic expert can ace this film quiz!

While some classic TV stars didn’t branch out much beyond their famous small-screen roles, others acted in all kinds of projects — some of them quite different than what they were best known for.

Here are some of our favorite TV stars in movies most people have never seen. If you think of yourself as a fan of obscure cinema — or just a good guesser — try your luck on this quiz!

  1. Thoroughly mainstream compared to other movies in this quiz, do you know Andy Griffith’s very first film?
  2. Peter Falk had a small role as a cab driver in this comedy classic.
  3. Florence Henderson appeared in this wacky 1991 Bobcat Goldthwait comedy.
  4. Henry Winkler starred alongside Sylvester Stallone in this 1950s gang flick right before they both became household names.
  5. Alan Alda played a pianist whose soul is in jeopardy in this Seventies satanic thriller.
  6. A decade before she became Morticia Addams, Carolyn Jones starred in this cult classic Vincent Price horror film.
  7. Jack Webb starred in and directed this love letter to the Jazz Age.
  8. Martin Milner starred in this 1960 horror movie filmed in “Illusion-O” which required special glasses to see the spectral entities come to life “in ectoplasmic color.”
  9. Mary Tyler Moore played a woman immune to a virus that infects people with happiness and kindness in this philosophical 1968 film.

  10. William Shatner spoke only Esperanto, a Latin-like language invented in the 1800s, in this 1966 film thought to be lost until a surviving print resurfaced in the 1990s.

Florence Henderson got hotter looking after the Brady Bunch, her and Eva Gabor and Mary Ann from Gilligans Island. What a threesome.

I made ten thousand dollar a month doing this and she convinced me to try. The potential with this is endless. Here’s what I’ve been doing more information visit this site… https://www.Usd.Works68.Com

Well, I blew the Pete Kelly's Blues one, although I shouldn't have. Forty lashes with an alto Sax for me. The rest were a walk in the park.

9 out of 10. I don't know Jack Webb outside of Dragnet. I only got the last one because I've seen the two possible answers Shatner isn't in.

Was this quiz hard to swallow or did it go down easy?

7/10. 3, 9 and 10.
5. Most infamous photograph from correct answer.
10. Esperanto is actually the most famous attempt at constructing an international language. Its base is the Indo-European languages of Europe and not just Latin.

Mesphisto's Waltz. Bill Windom had a small role as a pediatrician. His first time working with Alan Alda but his second time working with Jacquline Bissett and Bradford Dillman.

I follow Pamelyn Ferdin on Facebook and she's mentioned Mephisto Waltz a couple of times. That's how I knew that's how I knew that Alan Alda was in it.

Ferdin has a lot of credits, including the first voice of Lucy from Peanuts and Marcia's rival on The Brady Bunch! She dropped out of acting in the late '70's, but is still involved in political protests!
