There is absolutely no way that #11 isn’t Jonathan Harris.

I agree with you.

I thought so as well, he was one of the 2 I missed, the other was Doris Ziffel and she would have been my last guess!

7 out of 11. Some people were easily recognizable, others not so much.

No. 9 is not Milburn Stone. It's John Wayne.

No, #9 is Milburn Stone, from sometime in the '40s.
He did a lot of cop movies and serials back then; sometimes he was the leading man.
And it was always his own hair …

8/11 Guessed wrong for Ward Bond (Lee Marvin), Will Gear (Jonathan Harris) and Barbara Pepper (Ann Sheridan).

sometimes a star is recognized by his voice-- ever see a youg Nicolas colosanto-- fat, lots of hair-- coach on cheers-- it's the voice that I recognized
