Famous birthdays week #2

Last week:
1/2/1920 – Isaac Asimov
1/3/1892 – JRR Tolkien

Last year we looked at major world events that occurred each week. For 2024 let's look at birthdays of famous people for each week of the year.

For this week, we have:

January 8, 1935

January 9, 1935

Your task is to guess who each person is. To avoid spoiling it for people who come after you, do NOT put the person's name in the comments! Instead, write something about that person. For example, if your guess for person #1 is “Joe Biden”, write something like “#1 - current US president” in the comments. Don't use the name.

Good luck!


  1. 1) Blue, blue, blue suede shoes

    2) A three hour cruise

  2. The first has had a movie recently directed by an Aussie and the second spent time on an island (I think)

    1. I'm sure the first hasn't had anything "recent", but the second absolutely spent time on an island!
