   StormCnter  Yes, yes, and yes. Do you know I have never seen this movie? You win lunch with Robert Redford, since he's plumb out of money now, after giving so much to Woody Harrelson

   Richdet  He won for "The African Queen," and was nominated for the next two on that list. Always amazes me he never was nominated for "Sierra Madre."

   StormCnter  ...or Caine Mutiny, Rich. You're correct, of course. He won for "The African Queen'. The German gunboat in the movie, the Liemba, has been through a lot of lives but operates today as a passenger ferry. The Liemba runs once every two weeks in each direction, running from Kigoma to Mpulungu Wednesday to Friday, and back again from Friday to Sunday. You are awarded two tickets. You're on your own to get there, however.

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  (2002 film ) In September 1939, Wladyslaw Szpilman, a Polish-Jewish musician, is performing live on the radio in Warsaw when the station is bombed during Nazi Germany's invasion of Poland which caused the outbreak of World War II. Hoping for a quick victory, Szpilman rejoices with his family at home when learning that Britain and France have declared war on Germany. But Poland's allies do not live up to their promises of aid, and with both the German and Russian armies invading Poland at the same time on different fronts, fighting lasts for just over a month. German troops soon enter Warsaw, where life for Jews deteriorates as the Nazi authorities prevent them from working or owning businesses and force them to wear blue Star of David armbands.

   Gram77  Adrien Brody in The Pianist. Excellent movie and my favorite scene was then the German asked him to play.

   Richdet  Brody made such an impression in that movie, and seems such an able actor, but also seems to make a lot of strange/bad choices in projects. I believe he was the youngest man ever to win an Oscar for this part, and I recall his winning was taken as a big surprise. I imagine he is rising high on the lists of victims of the so-called "Oscar curse."

   StormCnter  Gram has the man and the movie and is awarded "The Complete Book of Scales" in case she isn't yet a pianist. If she is, she can trade it in for a book of Chopin etudes.

   Iacta alea est  Richard Mulligan, who was great on "Soap"

   StormCnter  Hello, Iacta. It's nice to see you. I wondered if Mulligan would be recognized. You have him just right. He was truly good as General Custer in "Little Big Man", too. For winning this quiz, you get "Soap: The Complete Series". You'll need a cup of tea and a plate of cookies for each episode, I think.

   Richdet  "Please Don't Eat the Daisies," with Day and Niven. Based I think on a book by Jean Kerr and her life with her husband Walter Kerr. Once upon a time he was probably the most famous theater critic in America, and she was a humorist and the author of a popular play called "Mary Mary" made into a movie with Debbie Reynolds.

Jean Kerr also wrote a musical play in the 50s called "Goldilocks" that starred Elaine Stritch. The score of that show is much beloved by theater fans, but it was a big flop at the time. Noel Coward went to see it, loved Stritch, and wrote a musical for her called "Sail Away," that was a hit for her. Stritch loved to tell the story about Noel C coming backstage and pronouncing something like "play not very good, leading lady excellent but in tears in her dressing room," and he decided to dry Elaine's tears and give her the kind of platform he thought she deserved.

   StormCnter  Well, we're glad to see you. I hate the computer problems, though. Has your hair turned white from frustration?

Yes, it's Doris and David. The movie is "Please Don't Eat the Daisies", based on Jean Kerr's book. Jean Kerr was married to Walter Kerr, the theater critic. In reward, Mei wins a pot of Shasta Daisies just to make her feel better.

   Richdet  Barbara Barrie. Don't know the actor's name and the title is escaping me. Ms Barrie was a very busy actress in movies and tv for a long time, a very familiar face and memorable voice.

   StormCnter  The movie is "One Potato, Two Potato", which won Barrie a Best Actress award at Cannes that year. The man is Bernie Hamilton. No, you don't win any potatoes. I'm sending you a big Greek Salad and a side of breadsticks for no logical reason except it's lunchtime and that sounds good to me.

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  (1925-1984 ) His mother died when he was two-years old. He was taken in and raised by his older sister. He once shared the record with Peter O'Toole for the most Oscar acting nominations (7 ) without a single win. In 2007, that record was broken, when O'Toole was nominated and lost yet again for the film "Venus". He suffered from acute insomnia. The twelfth of thirteen children, he insisted that his way out of an impoverished childhood was due not to acting, but to books; he read one a day. He once got into a contest with Robert F. Kennedy, whom he greatly admired, in which they tried to out-do the other by quoting William Shakespeare's sonnets. Both were word-perfect, and he was forced to "win" the contest by quoting one of the sonnets backwards. He was on a flight to California from Mexico, when he ran into a young man interested in acting. The actor encouraged him to pursue it full time during their conversation. That young man was Kevin Costner, who promptly left his marketing job to pursue an acting career. Who was this actor?

   StormCnter  Good morning, Hope. Yes, the man. You would think a man who was as intellectual, educated and confident in his own skin as Richard Burton would never have fallen for Elizabeth Taylor, who was none of those things. I guess it proves where the brains really reside in some people.

Hope wins the complete set of "The Everyman's Library" which Burton bought for Taylor and which she never cracked.
