The Singing Detective with Michael Gambon?

Just a guess.

New 4. Which two companies competed in the 1970's for the rights to a remake of a famous 1930's action/adventure film? For bonus points, which one won?

I'm tempted to say the movie is Robin Hood and therefore the winner is Disney (for the animated version), but I can't think of what the other studio might be, or if that's the correct answer.

EDIT: Actually I think I'm gonna change it to King Kong. Universal lost. Paramount won. Woohoo.

That's not correct. There was a debacle around the time the 1938 Robin Hood was made for the rights to make it, but I'm thinking of a different adventure film, and the issue I'm talking about took place four decades after the film in question came out.

Yes, that's the film. And the studios are right. You win!

(Although Universal did get the rights to make their own remake which they sat on for about 30 years before Peter Jackson came along.)

Cool, I'll have to post a new item after class. And perhaps a hint to my other one that's been up forever (Item #1).

The Updated List

1. This actress, who appeared in only three movies, died in much the same way as one of the characters she played only five years after filming it.
*HINT* She only starred in her famous director husband's movies.

2. Name this horror film from the late 80's



3. Which actress in an Alien film described the face huggers as "flying vaginas", and where can you hear this description?

4. Name the movie and I guess the actor (like it matters):



5. Which movie was described by its director as a tribute to movie theatres of old, only to never mention it again after the film's success?

I'm gonna make a random guess on 5 and say Chinatown.

And leave a hint on number 4: it's directed by Sam Peckinpah.

The Answer is "Society"

No, I came by the answer honestly. Straw Dogs is the one Peckinpah movie I've seen, and I vaguely remembered something about a cat.

That would probably make the actor Dustin Hoffman, I guess.

New question:

4. In a TV commercial that has been playing recently in the US, this actor says: "At 17 I went to prison for murder. By 19, I was pennyless and heartbroken. I almost drowned at 20. My mind started to go at 24. Then I had my memory erased at 28. And by 29, I was in Neverland." Who is the actor, and what are the movies?

Kate Winslet. (Good qeustion by the way)

1. Heavenly Creatures
2. Hmm...I think it's Sense and Sensibility
3. Titanic
4. Iris
5. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
6. Finding Neverland

EDIT: Oh, and it doesn't really matter to me if you used IMDb. I was just curious because I thought the scene was pretty easy and so I figured by saying it was Peckinpah it'd be gone in no time. You ought to rewatch it anyhow - I for one really like Straw Dogs.

Your answer is correct on all points.

A movie trivia thread that's been dead for years? This simply will not do...

I resurrect this thing with the words "Klaatu Barada Nikto"!

*necrofilic bump*


Took me a while to get through the entire thread. Apparently, when it comes to movie knowledge, I have more than worthy adversaries in Once A Villain and AFGNCAAP...
Unfortunately, I haven't seen either of them since I joined the site five months ago...


Anyway, this was what we had so far:

4. Word Scramble (nickname of the protagonist):

5. Which movie was described by its director as a tribute to movie theatres of old, only to never mention it again after the film's success?
1. Vera Clouzot, wife of Henri-Georges Clouzot, died of a heart-attack 5 years after her character in the movie "Les Diaboliques".

2. Brian Yuzna's Society, as Lucien21 mentioned earlier (but he mistakenly put it at 3.).

3. Sanaa Lathan, describing the facehuggers as such in the "cast and crew commentary" on the AVP: Alien vs Predator DVD.

4. erundloedi = El Duderino = The Dude from The Big Lebowski

5. Nuovo Cinema Paradiso by Giuseppe Tornatore. Although I think he said "obituary for movie theatres of old", not "tribute to"...


Is having five questions going at once not a bit too confusing unless every tenth post is a recap of all open questions??? I'm just saying... it could be why this thread died in the first place...
