Fred Perry, Wimbledon outsider to Hollywood star

Russian-born Yul Brynner played the King of Siam (that is, Thailand) in the 1956 The King & I . 2. The 1956 film The Teahouse of the August Moon featured Marlon Brando in prosthetic eyepieces and make-up as a wily interpreter. 3. Audrey Hepburn played the adopted Native American daughter of a frontier family in the 1960 movie, The Unforgiven . (Yes, the very Belgian-born actress who played a European princess in the 1953 Roman Holiday and a New York call girl from Texas in the 1961 Breakfast At Tiffanys whose cast included a grotesque performance by Mickey Rooney in yellow face as I.Y. Yunioshi.) 4. For the original version including any supplementary images or video, visit http://www.care2.com/causes/10-movies-showing-...

"I'd already beaten Crawford in the US and Australian finals. And do you know what happened after that? As champion I was due an All England Club tie. No one presented it to me. No one shook my hand or said: 'Congratulations'. "They just strung it over my chair in the locker-room without a word." Perry never forgave the All England Club and after he headed to the United States, he renounced his British citizenship and even served in the US air force in World War II.

Hollywood Gold Cup All About Game On Dude

That doesn't seem likely to stop the four-time grade I winner in a race Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith should be able to dictate from the start. That's what happened last year when Game On Dude disposed of outsider Spud Spivens after a half mile and cruised to a 1 1/2-length triumph over his Bob Baffert-trained stablemate Richard's Kid as the 2-5 favorite. The victory made Chantal Sutherland the first female jockey to win the Gold Cup. It also gave Baffert the distinction of saddling the first two finishers in consecutive Gold Cups. He also trained 2011 winner First Dude , who nosed out Game On Dude in a tremendous finish.
