“Lights! Camera! Alias!” If you want to be a star, get yourself a proper name. Would Frances Ethel Gumm and Joe Yule Jr. have risen to the pinnacle of Hollywood stardom without changing their names? Would Woody Allen have won three Oscars if he had kept his given name? Maybe. But Hollywood wisdom decrees that actors and directors take on snappy, easily managed names.

On the front of each card are the birth name of a well-known actor and a clue or two to help with identification; on the back are the screen name and a biographical sketch.
