I told you it wasn't Margaret Thatcher . . . :-)

The correct anwer is ***** IRENE RYAN (1902–1973) *****
Probably best known as Granny Bodine in the TV series "The Beverly Hillbillies"

THE CHAIN LINK to the previous game . . . PEACE
Plácido Domingo and Irene Ryan both have stage names connected with peace . . . placido is Spanish for 'peace' . . . 'Irene' is the Greek goddess of peace.

. . . and the winner is JSNMD2 who gave the correct answer on the final picture (#5) . . . well done . . . :D)

Happy Dance . . .

There is a fantastic clip on YouTube with her dressed as Granny Bodine singing 'I'm a Woman' but I didn't post that as there was too much waffle on it at the beginning

THIS GAME IS NOW CLOSED AND A NEW GAME HAS BEEN POSTED. IF YOU CLICK ON MY NAME BELOW IT WILL TAKE YOU TO MY PROFILE PAGE WHERE YOU WILL FIND A LINK TO THE CURRENT GAME . . . :D)

Here is the full series of pictures together with the original image. Please note that the original photo is freely available on several internet sites but all distortions/morphs/alterations etc are down to me, my PC and some anciemt software . . . :D)

Better not forget to mention Pat who cottoned on to the 'chain link' and Barb who trawled the net and once more found the original image . . . thank you both . . . :-)

As to your question SHeidi . . . yes, you were on the right track when you thought the 'chain link' was something to do with names . . . you suggested Tuesday Weld and mentioned that 'domingo' was Spanish for Sunday.
