    Okay, another clue.
    He had a friend called Brown, also an aviator.

    Yup, my great uncle (or something like that).
    I'm intrigued now.. did you get it from the photo or the clues?
    (I wouldn't have recognised him from a photo, I'm from the side of the family that altered the spelling of the surname and didn't acknowledge the family relationship

    The clue about mentioning him in a post gave it away. Remember a long time ago when we were playing that genie game?

    Oh good grief.
    I know I'd said I'd mentioned him in a post, but I thought it was a longer time ago than that.

    Ok then. Walter Gropius.
    Cheating is allowed, right ?

    You cheated?
    How?
    And yes, it's Walter.

    I'll let you off for cheating if you can explain the clues.

    -Ok, he married Alma Mahler who was the widow of Gustav Mahler. Gustav Mahler was Bohemian-born.
    -Walter was friends with Charles-Edouard Jeanneret that adopted Le Corbusier, an altered form of his maternal grandfather's name, "Lecorb├ęsier", as a pseudonym, reflecting his belief that anyone could reinvent himself.
    -Some architectural historians claim that this pseudonym translates as "the Crow-like one."
    Also, his friends gave him the nickname "Corbu", which referred to the word corbeau (raven) and his raven-like features.

    Did I pass ?

    I only use Google to check a guess.
    And then only if I'm fairly sure...

    I only cheated on the last one. Nevertheless, I'm going to withdraw from the competition since I probably cannot control myself using 'it' now

    No right-clicking!
    (It doesn't say who he is, but the url could lead to cheating).
    And possibly too easy, since it's a still from one of his films. Oops, just told you he's an actor...
