7. In which Disney movie would I find the villain named Ursula ?
8. Who Am I ?
I was born in 1907 in Winterset, Iowa... my middle name was soon changed to "Michael" when my parents decided to name their second son "Robert"...I struggled to become an actor, and received my first credits listing under the name Duke Morrison in Words and Music (1928)... a few of my notable films included Reap the Wild Wind - it was one of the rare times I played a character with questionable values.
The name "Tony", for newborns soared to record heights after the Sopranos first aired.
1. Under-arm hair
2. The Body Shop
3. the Tiber river
4. John Belushi and Dan Akroyd
5. Mountain Chains
6. Millstone
7. The Little Mermaid
8. John Wayne
The fictional head mobster may have many more namesakes since the show commenced, but there were no records taken. (Perhaps they prefer to keep it off the books!)
