   StormCnter  Yup. J.K. Simmons, Paul Reiser, Austin Stowell. You win a pair of drumsticks. The Wall has no money for a drum set, so maybe the tabletop will substitute.

Who was Virgil Tibbs, who played the part and in what film?
January 29 at 16:04 EST .

   Safetydude  ...they call me MR. TIBBS...

Sidney Poitier in "In The Heat Of The Night".
Also starring Rod Steiger and Warren Oats.
A pretty gutsy movie(topic wise )for the late sixties.
January 29 at 19:48 EST .

   MeiDei  It was an excellent movie & yes, gutsy for the time.
January 29 at 20:55 EST .

   StormCnter  Absolutely right. Safetydude, for your reward, I offer some trivia you might not know:
Sidney Poitier's former brother-in-law was champion boxer, Archie Moore. And, he is officially entitled to be known as Sir Sidney Poitier, but declines to use the title.

   MeiDei  The ever-handsome [but politically wrong] Gregory Peck in - best guess: The Snows of Kilamanjaro? Can't see who she is.
January 29 at 11:26 EST .

   StormCnter  The female stars were Ava Gardner and Susan Hayward and I'm pretty sure that's not Gardner, do you agree?
January 29 at 15:59 EST .

   StormCnter  Mei is awarded one of Key West's 6-toed Ernest Hemingway cats.
January 29 at 16:01 EST .

   MeiDei  I've already picked out it's name: PeiDei maybe it'll bring financial luck - or not : )

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  Do you recognize this stage, television and film leading man?

   MeiDei  I see him & think of Shelley Winters automatically : )
January 29 at 11:18 EST .

   MeiDei  Anthony Franciosa (sp )?
January 29 at 18:23 EST .

   StormCnter  He surely is. Mei is carefully handed a Hatful of Rain, which will be really good for her houseplants.
January 30 at 05:57 EST .

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  I'm thinking Mei will recuse herself until this goes unanswered too long:

I celebrate my joint birthday with Shirley MacLaine every year. When I was a student at Erasmus High School in NYC, I sang in the choir with Neil Diamond. Also at Erasmus High School I had an unrequited crush on a schoolmate who also would achieve international renown--chess genius Bobby Fischer. Jane Fonda won an Oscar for a role I turned down. Both of my husbands jointly starred in a 1971 movie. Walter Matthau hated me. He is famously quoted as saying I have "no more talent than a butterfly's fart". I have a shopping mall in my basement. Really. Who am I?
January 28 at 12:04 EST .

   MeiDei  You have my word.
January 28 at 12:48 EST .

   MeiDei  23 hours : ) long enough? Barbra Streisand.
January 29 at 11:08 EST .

   StormCnter  Yes! You are awarded lunch with Robert Redford who callously failed Katie's expectations and broke her heart. But, he's mellowed, Mei.
January 29 at 11:20 EST .

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  Do you recognize this actor, a veteran of almost forty movies, stage and television? He was born in Ireland and held a degree in architecture.
   January 28 at 07:40 EST .

   Safetydude  Edward Fox; "The Day Of The Jackal" or Dan O'Herlihy in "Fail-Safe"?

I'm going to go with Dan, my final answer.

   StormCnter  Your final answer is the correct one. Good work, SD. I hope you enjoy this 90 second tribute to Mr. O'Herlihy. The background music is hokey, so you might want to mute that.

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  1971 film: In 1857, con man Quincy Drew and his black friend Jason O'Rourke swindle slave owners into buying Jason, who's a free man, and later share the profits when Jason escapes captivity.

   MeiDei  James Garner??
January 28 at 01:25 EST .

   StormCnter  "Skin Game", with Lou Gossett, Jr., James Garner and Susan Clark. Mei gets to deal the cards for Bret Maverick's next poker game.
January 28 at 16:27 EST .

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  Clint Howard is mentioned down the page. For those who don't know him, here is a video tribute.

   MeiDei  Is she Raquel Welch?
January 27 at 10:10 EST .

   StormCnter  She is. You may be surprised at the actor in the photo.
January 27 at 12:51 EST .

   MeiDei  Count on the surprise, Have studied his face and am stumped! Good one.
January 27 at 20:53 EST .

   StormCnter  The film is "100 Rifles", featuring Burt Reynolds, Welch, Jim Brown, Fernando Lamas and even had Lorenzo Lamas as an Indian boy. The Yaqui warrior holding Raquel's horses bridle is Shakespeare-trained stage actor Michael Forest, who looks nothing like an Indian in real life.

But Mei is awarded a Raquel Welch exercise video, "Total Beauty and Fitness". Raquel is one month older than I and it's obvious she aged much better.
