December 2 - I recognized Michael Caine immediately.
December 3 - This took a few seconds but after having seen 1970s era Carol Kane in The Last Detail and The Mafu Cage this year, I was quite certain it was Carol Kane. The Caine/Kane homophone helped.
December 23 - I did not recognize this woman but having recognized Caine, Kane & Candy, I assumed this person was named Candy or some derivation (Candi, Kandi, etc.). I initially wondered if it was a young Candice Bergen but looking at photos of Bergen from the 1960s, I realized this was not Bergen. I briefly wondered if it was Candy Darling but the bouffant hairstyle nixed the notion without even looking at photos.
So I went to IMDB and searched for Candy under Names. The list of female actresses were (in this order): Christina Aguilera, Candace Cameron Bure, Candice Bergen, Candy Ann Brown, Candy Clark, etc. Who knew Christina Aguilera's nickname is Candy? I know what Aguilera looks like and I remember Candace Cameron from Full House so I eliminated those two. Candy Ann Brown? I didn't know her but she is a black actress with piercing blue/grey eyes. That eliminated her.
Candy Clark was in The Man Who Fell To Earth. The present day photos of her were promising; something about the eyes. I found this San Francisco Chronicle interview with her. In it, the writer states "It's her best role [The Man Who Fell to Earth], acting-wise, surpassing her Oscar-nominated performance as the platinum blond party girl Debbie Dunham in George Lucas' American Graffiti." That's when I had my Eureka! moment. The Dec 23 photo is from American Graffiti.
December 25 - I recognized John Candy immediately.
Michael Caine, Carol Kane, Candy Clark and John Candy - it must be Candy Cane in celebration of the holiday season.
