Drizle,   You are a smart man or you just love Ben Johnson. (like me)  I thought I made it tough and would have to give better clues later.  I was gonna say something like "Cybil Shepard was on a diving board but never got wet."

If I hadn't said supporting actor would you have got it?  I thought I'd made it to hard but not nearly hard enough for you. 

Congrats,   Doc

It was too hard.  I cheated and googled it.  Never would have guessed that on my own.  I realize it ruins the spirit of a trivia question, but I assumed that probably no one would have guessed that correctly.

Drizle,    Yeh,  it was way to obscure but didn't want to make it to easy either. Probably should have least put it in a time frame.
