Aaaln Ross, of Dunlop, is my challenger this week. He asks: "Which famous Hollywood film star was turned down for membership by the famous Los Angeles Country Club because he was an actor, and replied: `I'm no actor - I've got 19 films to prove it!'"

I can think of a few who fit the bill, Allan! You're my winner when you send me your answer with proof.

My pounds 50 cheque this week goes to Tom McCann, of Wishaw. He quizzed me on the actor who sent his Californian swimming pool water to his ex- wife as part of their divorce settlement. It was Peter Lawford and Pat Kennedy.

If you'd like to challenge me write to Daily Record, Anderston Quay, G38DA.
