The Betty Grable one really surprised me. I wasn't sure if it was a boy or a girl! Gene Tierney was another surprise. It doesn't really look like her. I love how Bette Davis is workin' those famous eyes. And little Cary Grant--so cute and such a little man!

So 8/14. Not too bad, I guess…though I had seen some of them before.

Thanks, that was fun! I love seeing baby celebrities! Have you ever seen baby Jack Lemmon and baby Bogie? They are so cute!

How funny is the Betty Grable pic! What a ham. I would have probobly failed this test if I were taking it myself. I think the mini Archie Leach is so like him! You can tell he will grow up to be gorgeous! I also think mini Bette Davis is so her. I would love to see baby Jack and Bogie!

Hi Emily! Great post. Do you mind if I use a couple of these photos? I have a segment I've been doing on my blog called Babes In Arms featuring actors and actresses when they were young. Please feel free to use any of mine as well for future trivia!
