MB Eyewear Challenge

MB Eyewear Challenge
There was enough interest in a recent MB eyewear post that we thought it would be fun to turn it into a contest. See if you can identify the 9 MBs above. Send your entry to editor@magnificentbastard.com, and don't forget to answer the tiebreaker question: Besides being dead, what do they all have in common?

Winner to receive $100 towards any vintage pair or any frame/sunglass of choice from the original design section including from the "upcoming styles" section at the official MB eyewear outfitter: allynscura.com.

Answers:

The correct answers were provided by Nicholas Swisher, and he even got the tiebreaker question right (they are all born under the sign of Aquarius), and noted the disputed birthdate of Humphrey Bogart. Well done, sir. Enjoy your new eyewear.

Top: James Dean, Paul Newman, Juan Garcia Esquivel
Middle: Humphrey Bogart, S. J. Perelman, Clark Gable
Bottom: Jack Benny, James Joyce, William S. Burroughs
