A military royalist... :lol:

Not royal himself but a protector of the crown and "nation".
The first image is him as a Colonel just before WWII.
Here he is again, in his 1916 uniform this time.

I'm not quite sure others would put him in the "Allied & Neutral Armies" section. 8-)
Nontheless there is evidence of "pro-Allied sympathies and activities".

Thanks Ironmachine!

I'll try another 2 star general... :D So who?

An almost nude athletic actor might help... 8-)

By all means Bill!

And thanks for reminding me of the quiz

Let's see now. Not one but some good tips next! :D

"His" specialized unit was in the "thousands" and had a special nickname too :wink:

I previously mentioned "an almost nude athletic actor". This silent actor had the same name as the Major General!

Here's an other actor who would play the Major General in a movie.

The image is not from the above mentioned movie. For this movie look for examples of certain events
similar to the Thule Air Base B-52 crash. These "events" should lead to the name of this movie and actor.
And if this is not enough John Travolta starred in a movie with the same title.

That should do it for now... :lol:

There is a film called "Broken Arrow" with Travolta playing the role of a pilot implied in a lost nuclear wepon plot.
There is a Western of the 50's also titled "Broken Arrow" where the Good Guy Cochise is played by an actor named Jeff Chandler.
There is a WW II Brigadier General named Rex Eugene Chandler ....
So maybe Brigadier General Rex Eugene Chandler?

Otherwise there is a vast array of possibilities: Brigadier General Johnny Weismuller or Brigadier General Dustin Hoffman or Brigadier General Sylverster Stallone ......

:D Very close iffig!

But the second actor did not share the same name as the 2 star Major General.
An earlier, nearly nude silent actor did! So which other movies did the "Good Guy Cochise" play in?
One of them is the answer :wink:
