    Based on Crocodile Dundee’s fabulous ruffled shirt and hair style, I’ll guess 1974

    Thanx, I needed that! I kept staring at that face, thinking "Who, who, who???".

    My SWAG is 1973.

    Mr. Hogan has maybe a wrinkle or two less than we see in the Dundee pictures...I'm going to say 1976.
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    The year missing in the range of guesses so far is 1977.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    This is like the Price is Right, where everyone tries to outguess each other by $1. I'll wager 1972, Bob.

    my guess is 1981. yes people were still wearing tuxes like that. I have my brother's 1982 prom picture as proof.

    I'm not sure if the rules allow me to guess again since I allready had a wrong guess. But I'll risk the penalty and throw out 1971.

    My real guess based upon the two color ink job - 1968

    According to article 4.2 in the official GTY rulebook it says that

    Quote Originally posted by Official Guess the Year Rulebook
    "Multiple guesses are allowed if either: A) ten unsuccessful guesses have been submitted or B) no one has guessed correctly after 24 hours of the original post. At which time the member hosting the GTY may either provide the correct answer and announce a 'closest guess' award, or allow the game to continue, provide additional clues and allow additional guesses to be entered by those who have already submitted a previous guess"
    And with that on the off-chance that natski decides to allow multiple guesses I'll go with 1979. So, what do I win?

    I guess 1982.
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Let's not be didactic in this profession, because that is a path to disillusion and irrelevancy.

    WE HAVE A WINNER!

    FINALLLY!!

    Thank you Maister. This one was a tricky one, as this pic of Paul Hogan was used throughtout the advertising campaign, but this ad was actually published in November 1979- after which he decided that he needed to quit as he was picking up a "family" image.

    Special mention goes to RichmondJake who picked Mr Dundee straight away!
