First feature film from 329 famed actors/actresses - Quiz

by BuhoBuho | created - 25 Sep 2011 | updated - 21 Jun 2014 | Public

First full feature from relatively known actors and actresses. Admittedly a totally biased list as "famed" is filtered by my ignorance. Feel free to suggest and enlighten me.

For the fun of trying to find them, sometimes playing during a very short time but so much younger than we are used to when they finally got some fame.

Also serves as a quiz if you use the compact view and hover on the notes to find the answer. Best used if you sort the compact view by IMDb ratings* as some actors started in real lemons and others were lucky to be in the Top250 from their start! *(it will give you the first 250 title page instead of the initial 100 titles)

Rules: No shorts, no videos, no TV series or TV movies, no uncredited but an earlier different stage name is OK.

May be one day, IMDb will let me: 1. preset this list (Compact + IMDb ratings) independently of my other personal lists which are (Compact + A-Z or Compact + MyRatings), 2. see more than 100 titles per page when opening the compact view, 3. see the #101 to #329 title without having to invert the A-Z to Z-A and back, 4. go to the fourth page of the list when in edit mode without having to: - scroll to the bottom of the first page, click for next (to the second page), - scroll to the bottom of the second page, click for next (to the third page), - scroll to the bottom of the third page, and finally click for the fourth page. 5. eventually have a way to have them by alphabetical order of the original title (not the US release title) 6. ...

Anyway, enjoy it, Buho BUHO
