The Paramount Picture at Vanity Fair (where you can access close-ups of the faces) celebrates the studio's 100 years with 116 of its "greatest talents ever to work at the studio."

Can you match the stars with their iconic studio roles?

Tom Cruise fed the studio for decades, from Tony Scott's "Top Gun" through "Mission: Impossible" before he was tossed unceremoniously on his ear by Sumner Redstone after the VIacom chief felt he was giving the star too large a percentage of each film's proceeds. Steven Spielberg and George Lucas delivered the Indiana Jones franchise and Harrison Ford, who also took over as Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan after "The Hunt for Red October," which co-starred Scott Glenn. (Later Ryan Ben Affleck is not in the photo.)

Recent AFI Achievement Award winner Shirley MacLaine won her Best Actress Oscar as Aurora Greenaway opposite Jack Nicholson as astronaut Garrett Breedlove in "Terms of Endearment." He also starred, memorably, in Roman Polanski's "Chinatown," written by Robert Towne.

Glum-faced Robert De Niro may be realizing how far down the ladder he has fallen since "The Godfather Saga" (also repped by Andy Garcia and James Caan) and "The Untouchables." (All you have to do, Bob, is give up the B-movie paychecks and take on some challenging character roles.) On the other hand, Eddie Murphy seems happy to recall his glory days in "48 HRS," opposite Nick Nolte (under a fedora) as well as "Beverly Hills Cop." John Travolta and an unrecognizable Olivia Newton-John starred in "Grease." "Transformers" star Shia LaBeouf is hiding under a beard and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is included, but where's Michael Bay?

With reason to look cheery are David Fincher and Brad Pitt ("The Curious Life of Benjamin Button"), "Iron Man" Robert Downey Jr. and his director Jon Favreau (although Marvel has moved on to Disney), J.J. Abrams, who picked up the "M:I" franchise (also repped by its most recent director, Brad Bird, and Paula Patton) as well as directing "Super 8" (starring Elle Fanning, whose sister Dakota sits far away) and rejuvenating "Star Trek" (I see two Captain Kirks and two Mr. Zulus, plus one Picard, Uhura, Scotty, McCoy, Spock and Chekhov ).
