Can't believe I missed Sam Elliot. The older he gets, the better he gets.

I completely agree!

I am surprised only 20% got Sam Elliott.

It's so obvious when you see the answer but I couldn't get a gruff Super Mario out of my head reading the clue, and the answer looks nothing like Mario.

Funny how many Stephen/Steven/Steve/Stevies there are on this list!

Guess that's what happens when it's almost Americans with S Initials? (Not even the best Steve McQueen in film.)

With all respect in the world to the brilliant director of 12 Years a Slave, the star of the Great Escape is ABSOLUTELY the best Steve McQueen in film!!!

I missed Steve Jobs. I was thinking of Johnny Appleseed, which, if you think of it, doesn't even make sense for the quiz. :P

After "Author of "The Shining"", you should put "Director who made it better". Same initials! Coincidence? Not according to the movie "Room 237".

Even with the coin qualifier I had trouble with SA because I'm so used to saying Susan B. Anthony. That middle initial really screwed me up. Got it eventually.

He's not an actor, though.

Doesn't fit the SE initials.

Maybe his full name is Yosemite Samuel Estevez. Do you know that it's not?

Just because I was curious if they ever gave him a last name, I looked it up. In the 1950 cartoon "Big House Bunny," where he's a prison guard, his name is Sam Schultz. In The Looney Tunes Show (2011-2014), his full name was Samuel Michelangelo Rosenbaum. In The New Looney Tunes cartoons (2015-2020), his name was Aloysius Barthomelew Sam.

I thought of him too. Never heard of the guy who was the actual answer.

Not that this is a crucial addition, of course, but it would be funny if the clue right after "SJ - Apple founder" were "SW - The other Apple founder."

Kind of funny that the person who directed the movie for "The Shining" has the same initials as the person who wrote it. I tried Stanley Kubrick before I looked at the clue more closely.

Sophie Xeon for SX maybe? She was an influential pop music producer known mononomously.

Tried a million spellings for Salman Rushdie. Should have tried a million and one.
