   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  She's the daughter of a very big star father and a fairly big star mother. Who is she?

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  One actor shaved his head for this film and kept it shaved for the rest of his life. It was another major actor's final film. The actor playing the lead role said the hardest part about playing (this person ) was the expectations people had of him to remain in character at all times. He could not smoke between takes, have a drink after work, or be affectionate with his wife on the set. The young woman who played the major female role became pregnant during filming. The director worked around this by shooting her from the chest up as much as possible, making her later scenes markedly unlike the earlier ones. The cinematographer suffered a heart attack, collapsed and died on the set. Three of the major actors went on to play the James Bond villain Ernst Stavro Blofeld in later films.
What was this movie?

   GO3  I'd say the one who kept his head shaved was Telly Savalas. The other two would be Donald Pleasance and Charles Gray. No idea what the movie is.

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  His birth name was Aaron Chwatt. He started his show-business career singing on street corners as a child. At 16 he got a job as part of a comedy act playing the famed Catskills resort area in upstate New York (his partner was future actor Robert Alda ). In 1942, he joined the Marines and was picked up for Moss Hart's service play on Broadway, migrating to Hollywood after his service ended to have a role in the film version. This led to his own television series which won him an Emmy. His first big film break followed a few years later and the hit movie role won him an Oscar. A years-long solid film career followed. He wrote some of the songs he used in his comedian days. Who was he?

   Calvinesq  I guessed Jackie Gleason, mainly due to the "songs he used in his comedian days" and for performances in The Hustler and Gigot. If he didn't win an Emmy for the Honeymooners, he was robbed. I looked it up, however, and know this is not correct.
Yesterday at 10:35 EST .


   StormCnter  Good guess, but he is not Jackie Gleason.

   StormCnter  Plenty long enough for this one. He is Red Buttons, who won an Oscar (Best Actor in a Supporting Role ) for his performance in "Sayonara".

   Mike PHX  Mei, I beg to differ...that is a middle-aged Hal Holbrook.
Saturday at 20:54 EST .


   MeiDei  Maybe I should have written "a younger Hal Holbrook".
Sunday at 03:31 EST .


   StormCnter  Yes he is Hal Holbrook and yes, it is a "younger" Holbrook.

   StormCnter  Exactly right. This movie bored me. But, others loved it. I do like Peter O'Toole in almost everything.

   Mike PHX  David Lean needed a good editor. Great flashes of brilliant scenes, but can we cut the trek across the desert by at least 30 minutes?

   Mike PHX  Ok, Wiseacre. You're talking to the master of history.
I don't cut and paste from some obscure outline.
I know it.
Show everyone why you deserve to be paid for anything resembling knowledge.
Sunday at 02:37 EST .


   GO3  1. It was a joke for cryin' out loud.
2. The bit about Lawrence of Arabia was not cut and paste.
3. I do use online history bits to do my military history posts and QC as time allows - and I have found plenty of mistakes and fix those before posting.
4. I know certain eras in history, but not all as you apparently claim.
5. I only have to show my boss why I deserve to paid for my knowledge, and right now he seems to be very satisfied.

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  He was born two days after Pearl Harbor and was delivered by candlelight because of a resulting power blackout in Los Angeles. His nickname (and subsequent screenname ) came from a best-selling book his parents were reading at the time of his birth. His father is in movies and television, his younger brother is also a major film star. He was an outstanding basketball player in high school and college and was scouted by several pro teams. He served 8 years in the US Coast Guard. He has appeared with his father in five films, his brother in one, and three of his own films were nominated for Best Picture Oscars. He is a three-time Emmy, two-time Golden Globe and one-time Grammy Award winner.Who is he?

   Safetydude  Well, it's either Jeff or Beau. I think Beau was in the military so that's who I'm going with; Beau Bridges.

My final answer.

   Mike PHX  Beau was never nominated for, much less, won, an award.
It's Jeff.

   StormCnter  He is Beau, Safety dude. Well answered.

Mike, Beau was definitely nominated for and won awards. I think you were joking, however. Beau and I forgive your doubts.

   Tulsa  Enjoyed Jeff in Starman. The expression on his face when he first tastes pie was sheer bliss.

Beau won Oscar for Crazy Heart 2009.
