    Switch the "p" and the "r" around to come up with "Orpah."

    I don't know why that's so hard to pronounce, though.

    A couple years ago, a biographical movie came out about Jackie Gleason.

    Who was the actor who portrayed Gleason?

    Actually, and I think this is correct, but I think it was spelled Oprah because they misspelled it on the birth certificate. But youre absolutely right, they intended to call her Orpah.

    CORRECT - and don't feel bad - I looked up the question and answer

    Alan Alda was born in New York City on January 28, 1936, with the name Alphonso D'Abruzzo. His father, an actor, had taken the screen name Robert Alda, and when Alan decided to follow in his father's footsteps, he adopted the name as well. Alan Alda is most famous for playing Hawkeye Pierce on M*A*S*H (1972-1983), a stint which earned him five Emmy Awards
