Assuming that's acceptable the replacement question is

In the original cut of Blade Runner the closing scene (with Harrison Ford voiceover) is of a car driving through counttryside. THis footage is off-cuts from the opening of which film?

Can you explain what you mean by "simulated"? I have thought of a ton of classic "old man" movies (that I won't name in case I want to use them for later trivia questions ), and I've also thought of many movies where we don't learn the main character's names... But, I'm having trouble combining the two pieces into a single film. The answer is probably right in front of my face, maybe even one of the movies I'm already thinking of, but can you give a little more?

1968 I think. Barbra Streisand and Katharine Hepburn.

Ok I need to think of new questions for 1, 3, and 4. Give me a bit, watching this controversial B.S. football game where the referees gave the Colts new life...

This definition is the closest to what I mean:

I must add that by "the plot involves", I meant that this is one of the events that happen throughout, not that it was central to the plot. I apologize for my poor choice of words (again).

UPDATED QUESTIONS:


1. Name the famous silent film that originally ran over 9 hours, but was trimmed to 2 hours and 20 minutes against the director's will. Not too long ago there was a reconstruction of sorts, where the film was lengthed to 4 hours and 10 minutes through the use of old photo stills and other surviving elements, with intertitles, standing in for the lost scenes.

2. In this classic, we never learn the names of most of the characters and the plot involves a simulation of an old man walking. Name the film.

3. Name this film -



4. What film had two characters meeting on a train and trading murders?

5. What classic Western had a "Yee Haa scene" that was talked about and imitated by characters in a later film, City Slickers?

Greed. I didn't know abut the reconstruction.

3. Name this film -

At first glance, I thought A Man for All Seasons. Now I'm not sure, but let that be my guess.

Strangers on a Train

All right AFGNCAAP, except #3.

About that Greed reconstruction, it's pretty fascinating. I taped it at 5 in the morning when it premiered on Turner Classic Movies about five years ago.

Okay, replacements:

1. During the final speech of this movie, Gérard Depardieu's character gradually loses his voice. In fact, the actor really was barely able to speak after numerous reshoots, and the director decided his exhausted whisper will work great in said scene. Name the film.

4. In Kevin Smith's Dogma, what is the only line Silent Bob says, and what other movie does it refer to?

Would that be 'Citizen Kane' by any chance?

This one's already answered (Erich von Stroheim's Greed). The up-to-date list is as follows (note that I evaluated #2):



1. During the final speech of this movie, Gérard Depardieu's character gradually loses his voice. In fact, the actor really was barely able to speak after numerous reshoots, and the director decided his exhausted whisper will work great in said scene. Name the film.

2. In this classic, we never learn the names of most of the characters and the plot involves, among other things, two knifes, several votings and a simulation of an old man walking. Name the film.

3. Name this film -



4. Robby the Robot most famous for Forbidden Planet(1956) and the Lost in Space TV show (Danger Will Robinson!!) has made various guest appearances in other movies. name 2 80's movies in which he appears.

5. What classic Western had a "Yee Haa scene" that was talked about and imitated by characters in a later film, City Slickers?
