Hers was a sad story. She gained a lot of weight due to an incident (maybe a car accident?) and could no longer do the roles she used to do.

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

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!

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 …
