The Picture Slot this year is Cary Elwes from The Princess Bride, one of the best dialogue movies made in my lifetime. Last year I used Jackie Coogan as Uncle Fester and next year it's a toss-up between the late Bob Hoskins and Julie Dawn Cole as Veruca Salt in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Spot the Canadian is way too tough today, as some non-Canadians show up in multiple Canuck productions and some Canadian show up in very few. The correct answers are Lisa Ryder, Trevor White, Robert Maillet, Kelly Rowan, Mary Black and Ivor Francis. Hal Ozan and Steve Valentine are not Canadian. As I wrote, this one was too tough.
Many happy return to the living on the list and to the dead, thanks for all the memories.
