It takes a movie expert to recognize these Golden Age Hollywood stars on TV

They were movie stars in the '20s and '30s — and celebrity cameos in the '60s and '70s.

They were Hollywood's earliest icons, the stars of silent and black-and-white cinema. Names like Chaplin, Garbo, Bogart and Dietrich. 

These celebrities were on marquees in the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s — before television became a household habit. 

But they still turned up on TV from time to time. Below, we've gathered some TV cameos made by Golden Age Hollywood stars. You're practically a film scholar if you can recognize them all. Good luck!

12/12 Number 11 gave me trouble because I wasn't sure if it was CLAUDETTE COLBERT who was married to CLARK GABLE and later died in a plane crash! I didn't see anything special about her eyes so that left out CLARA BOW, who had a rep for beautiful eyes, therefore...
