Aargh! So close and yet so far with a couple of them! I got the ones in red:

1. Sperm Whale
2. North America--I knew this was most likely the answer but I still said Europe!
3. Orange, Black and White
4. Anterior

5. The visit to the stable where Jesus was by the Three Wise Men--I think I was on the right track with 12th day of Christmas, but still not right!
6. Robert Stroud--Rats! I knew it but it wouldn't come to me.
7. Emily Bronte
8. Three Inches--This was my first answer, but then I second-guessed myself.
TRUTH !!
