   GO3 posted on Shopper's Beware Caveat Emptor  Watch out for Home Advisor. If something needs to be done around the property that is beyond my abilities, I like to hire local. I wanted three to four estimates on some work and foolishly called what I thought to be a local company, but it had a toll free number. Big mistake. It was actually a front for Home Advisor, who sent out a local crew, but I could tell they weren't even the second best. One of them even asked me about job openings in my field! Doesn't inspire confidence. After going with someone else, I then started to receive a slew of unwanted emails from Home Advisor. I unsubscribed only after several attempts. The moral of the story is, make sure if you want local, that they operate independently.

   GO3 posted on Music  OK folks, I thought I'd start something spinning off of the movies and reviews wall: your favorite themes from movies and TV. I'll start with one of my favorites here:

   GO3  That's a good one. I would ask to do a first post on your songs so as to leave comments on that particular song. Thanks.

   GO3 posted on Movies & Reviews  Re: Hang 'em High. I think Pat Hingle is one of the finest actors America ever produced. Here is a sample of his work from Hang 'em High (1968 ) as the territorial judge.

   StormCnter  I also am a Hingle fan. I've never seen him give a less than terrific performance.

   GO3 posted on Movies & Reviews  The earlier quiz concerning Inger Stevens reminded me of this film. Pictured are Inger and two other leading cast members. This was the first US made spaghetti western and the first movie made by a new production company called Malpaso. Name the other cast members and the title. Should be an easy one for a Saturday.

   Richdet  The men are Clint Eastwood (bringing the spaghetti western home ) and Pat Hingle (took me a few beats to recall his last name; I kept thinking "Hinkle" or "Hinkley" ). Title is "Hang 'em High"?

Does anyone recall Inger Stevens' tv show, the tv version of "The Farmer's Daughter"? Or "The Price of Tomatoes," the tv drama with Peter Falk as the truck driver who gives a lift to pregnant Inger? A lot of her impact was in her many television roles, just about all of which is lost down the memory hole now.

   GO3  Rich gets it right. I think Hang 'me High was very well done and had better production values than any of the original spaghetti westerns. I do remember Inger in the Farmer's Daughter TV series but memories are fading on the details. I don't remember Tomatoes. Sad ending for a beautiful woman.

   GO3 posted on Movies & Reviews  I'm going to lighten things up a bit. Spinning off of the earlier quiz on How to Succeed in Business Without really Trying, the 60s was a time of what was called the "bedroom farce comedy" or risque movies as my Mom called them. My buddies and I were pretty successful sneaking into the theater as early teens to watch these shows, and this is one of my favorites. The main cast members are pictured below, but the draw was it depicted a series of vignettes starring some high powered celebrities of the day. It was also directed by Gene Kelly. Title and name the actors below. Extra credit given for naming any of the celebrities in the vignettes if you can remember that far back.

   Richdet  I see Walter Matthau, Inger Stevens & Robert Morse. Title just may be "Guide for the Married Man." That, or close to it. I never saw it (how did that happen? -- I loved Inger Stevens ), so I don't know the cameos.
September 14 at 08:55 EST .


   GO3  Right on the cast and the title. Some of the celebs in the vignettes were Terry Thomas, Jayne Mansfield, Lucille Ball, Joey Bishop, and Sid Caesar. I too loved Inger Stevens and thought she was one of the most beautiful women I had ever seen. Very funny movie IMO.

   GO3 posted on Movies & Reviews  In the original Predator movie with Arnold Schwarzenegger and several other action stars, the actor pictured below actually played two very different parts in the film. What is his name and what characters did he play?

   StormCnter  I cheated, GO3, and looked him up because I haven't seen any Schwarzenegger films. He was the tallest of six brothers, all over 6' 5". Wow!

   GO3  Right. The fact he was 7'2" should give a hint at one of the characters he played.

   GO3  This has gone to the second page, so: his name is Kevin Peter Hall and he played both the predator, and the helicopter pilot at the end of the movie. He played the predator again in Predator 2 and also Harry in Harry and the Hendersons. He died in 1991 of AIDS due to a contaminated blood transfusion.

   GO3 posted on Movies & Reviews  An underappreciated WWII movie from the early 60s. Name the cast pictured below and the name of the movie.

Extra credit: The director was Don Siegel who a few years later mentored an up and coming star who developed into one of the industry's most prolific and best directors of our time. Who was Siegel's student?

   StormCnter  The guy on the right looks like Stewart Granger, but probably isn't.

For extra credit, I suspect Siegel is responsible for Sam Peckinpah.

   Richdet  "Hell Is for Heroes." Men in the picture, left to right, are Bobby Darin, Steve McQueen, Nick Adams, and Fess Parker (aka Davy Crockett, Daniel Boone ).

Don Siegel directed several of Clint Eastwood's early signature movies, such as "Dirty Harry." CE has always acknowledged Siegel as his key influence/inspiration as a movie director.

   Richdet  p.s. It enhances your ability to solve this puzzle if you click on the picture and enlarge it. The faces are easier to make out. And it also improves your chances if you already know the movie (which I do ), and know who you're looking for (McQueen, Darin, et al ). Bob Newhart is also in the movie, and I looked and looked for him in this pic, and didn't find him. Too bad.

   GO3  Rich gets it all. And Don mentored CE as you said. There were other famous cast members but I couldn't find a photo which had everyone including the principals. In addition to Newhart, there was James Coburn, Harry Guardino, L.Q. Jones, and consummate character actor Mike Kellin. Another interesting thing was that Robert Pirosh, who wrote the screenplay, was replaced as director by Siegel. Pirosh later developed the very successful TV series, "Combat!"

   Tulsa  Sherlock Holmes 3 (announced )
Irene Adler (rumored )

Found the above at IMDb today. She is very pretty. I watch all the Sherlock shows.

   Tulsa  Me too. Fatally poisoned in a restaurant.

If Sir Arthur can kill Sherlock and revive him, then Hollywood and do the same with Irene. They will say it was a sleeping potion! And we'll take it 'cause we want her back!

Irene portrays Moriarty in the Elementary tv series.
Irene is portrayed as a domatrix (sp ) (can not spell that word ) in the PBS version with Cummerbatch as Sherlock.

The info above was on McAdams' page yesterday. I hope it true. There is never enough Sherlock.
