    I thought the answer to #15 is Dorthy Hammill. None of those answers given fit. Errol Flyn played Robin Hood.

    One of those answers was the correct one.
    All three of my working brain cells gathered together and remembered that. She was the original Peter Pan that started the tradition of Peter being played by women.

    Judy:
    Her son was an actor on Dallas. Not Hawaii 50.
    And she was a lot older than Dorothy Hamill.

    I once saw Larry Hagman and the actress in question together on TV and they at least claimed to be mother and son. I believed them.
