I got the ones in red:

1. Ireland
2. Greenwich
3. Dennis Hopper --Argh! We saw this not too long ago and I knew the answer, but we had also seen something with Peter Fonda since then and I said the wrong one!
4. Brands of coffee --This makes more sense than my answer which was tobacco blends.
5. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
6. Platypus
7. a Tureen
8. Palms and Soles
TRUTH !!
