I got Mia Farrow, remembered that one...then I read the next question and had second thoughts...decided it was a trick and answered Rosemary's Baby x 2. I'm glad I didn't listen to my second thought!

1. New Mexico
2. Thanks for the Memories and Buttons and Bows--Not sure how I could have missed either of these!
3. SNOOPY
4. fourteen
5. a -1924
6. ADOLPH HITLER
7. Rosemary's Baby

8. Rosemary's Baby

I almost said 1924 on #5, but I went ahead and guessed 1934 because that is the year my dad was born.

I can't stand Roman Polanski and totally forgot he directed Rosemary's Baby!

At least you had a reason to pick 1934...

I don't like Polanski, either...but that tidbit I remembered.
