You got 11 out of 12 - Gary Burghoff played Radar in both the movie and the show — and just like him, you're at home in both worlds! Nice work! Missed the last one. Goshdarnit!!

I didn't know a lot of these shows/movies but I do not that back in the day, television and movie actors didn't usually cross genres, so I would look for someone I knew was a movie actor or a television actor and use that to answer the question correctly.

I guessed wrong on #7 and fat-fingered #9. All you basically had to do was determine who is known as a movie star and who is known as a TV star.

Absolutely LOVED #6, Charles Nelson Reilly was PERHAPS one of the funniest people on TV (excluding Don Adams) the child stars were nothing short of BRILLIANT and Edward Mulhare was Amazing as Captain Greg, sadly it only lasted 2 seasons, I wish someone would try a re-boot!!

Going back for this one since I didn't remember doing it. Shouldn't have -- way too easy!

11/12 Got one wrong because I misread it. I thought it said movie ,instead of TV show.

I miss Gary Collins. He had some DWI junk toward the end of his life, which was a shame. I liked Sixth Sense & his other stuff. Bought the deevy-dee set of Night Gallery party because it had his shows in it too (along WITH Sandra Dee).

8 out of 12. A lot of them come from me misreading the question.
