Surprised to have gotten them all. Getting Peron was a sort of shot in the dark.

There are many different ways to spell his name in the latin alphabet. For non-English native speakers it can be very difficult to guess how a russian name would be spelled in English. So accepting different spellings shouldn't be too much asked.

I scored 16/16, but then looking at my stats, I've previously scored 19 for this quiz?? Strange.

I just noticed that. My high score is 19, too. I missed one previously so apparently an entire line was deleted from the quiz.

Based on the political cartoons of the day, I expected Khruschev to look fatter.

RR was actually famous in the 50s?

Not really. He was president of SAG, but otherwise a relatively minor actor. He did not get into politics until the 60s (ran for California governor in 1966). He would probably be more appropriately placed in the 1960s or 1980s quiz.

Is it just me or do all the Soviet leaders between Stalin and Gorbachev seem to look the same? I can never keep them straight, but probably just a generational thing as I grew up in the 70s/80s.

"Norma Jeane" should be accepted as type in for Marilin Monroe, "Richard Penniman" should be accepted for Lilltle Richard.

Why would you ever need those to be accepted? If you know the real names, you 100% know their famous names. Just type them and stop trying to sound smart by being overly pedantic lol.

Oh, Jetpunk...never change.

Sure, just as Dino Paul Crocetti should be accepted for Dean Martin, and Kappelhoff for Doris Day...!! -_-;

Pedantry aside, using the name they are most well known by makes much more sense, does it not!

Can't believe I missed Grace Kelly. Was hypnotized by her eyes, that's my excuse and I am sticking to it. I always thought she was one of the most beautiful actresses ever.
