    It pleases me that you are all having to apply yourselves! It really is a simple one.

    Nope!

    Clue # 1- correct
    Clue # 2- you’re all way off! (Actually, there WAS a correct answer to this clue.)
    Clue # 3- one of you has the correct definition.
    Clue # 4- I’ll give you a hint. That is a shelf bracket, inverted.
    Clue # 5- several of you had the correct answer for that one.

    I just love @Canuck's simple ones.

    They're so easy to solve.

    The clues do not lead directly to name of the person who is the subject of this rebus. But once you solve the rebus, you’ll easily discover the name of the person, and the reason for this person’s prominence. You’re gonna hate yourself once this is put to rest.

    Name the person, show a picture, reason for prominence.

    It’s too early for clues, but I’ll leak one.

    I le(a)d three lives

    But I still don't know who the person should be. Actor? Character?

    That will lead you to the name of the subject in this rebus. Correct, as far as it goes. But I need the answer to the subject of the rebus, and the name of the individual before I unfurl the prize. And while you’re at it, I asked what the individual was famous for!

    I am buried in partial answers. I le(a)d three lives, and Herbert Philbrick, and spy/double agent are correct. Before I unfurl the prize, I need ALL the answers.

    Yet another partial answer! The image is of Herbert Philbrick, hired as a spy. But how does that relate to the rebus? There WAS a correct answer to the rebus, but what does the answer relate to?

    The rebus answer is
    Eye- I
    Solder- Led
    Tenors- three
    Reverse bracket in l shape and burl Ives - Lives

    the answer relates to the publication of the book I led Three lives by Philbrick, his prominence comping from outing himself as a spy to testify against communists and the subsequent publishing of his book

    @Matty01 gets the award, but he was helped indeed by a number of you. Matt answered the rebus, but many of you can take pleasure vicariously. Well done, all!

    I wouldn’t have solved it without @jayelblock ‘s contribution
