This picture was taken when Diane Lane was only 15 years old. She got her start acting at the age of six, and by the time she was 12, she was cast in Joseph Papp’s production of The Cherry Orchard, alongside Meryl Streep and Irene Worth. By the time she was 13, she was acting with Laurence Olivier in A Little Romance, her first feature film. She also appeared on the cover of Time as one of the “Whiz Kids” of Hollywood. 

A horse is a horse, of course, of course, and no one can talk to a horse, of course. Mr. Ed and Wilbur (Alan Young) 1961-66

The role of Mr. Ed was first played by a chestnut gelding, although the episode he appeared in was never aired. He was too difficult, and so was replaced by Bamboo Harvester and the horse played the role throughout the series, although in the credits he was listed as “Himself.” They claimed that they got Mr. Ed to talk by putting peanut butter on the horse’s gums, but the truth was more interesting: he “talked” on cue when the trainer touched his hoof. He apparently was a very smart horse.
