   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  Good morning to every poster and lurker and movie fan. I've answered everything and this is the last for a couple of days. Like many of you, I have guests coming in and a feast to prepare.

Please remember our Mei and her son in your thoughts and prayers. She and he are dealing with a lot right now.

Also, Iacta and his parents should be included in those thoughts and prayers, too.

Have a warm,safe and blessed Thanksgiving, everyone. Bon appetit!

   StormCnter  Hope has Jayne correctly. The guy is Ferlin Husky of country music fame. The movie is "Las Vegas Hillbillys", a forgettable film. But, you win a 45 record of Husky's "Gone".

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  Trivia for "When Harry Met Sally": The concept of Sally being a picky eater was based on Nora Ephron, the scriptwriter, and so years after the movie came out, when Nora Ephron was on a plane and ordered something very precise, the stewardess looked at her and asked "Have you ever see the movie 'When Harry Met Sally'?"

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  1964 film: The film begins with a young singer trying to earn money by pitching a snake-oil cure-all to the gullible, capping his spiel by picking up his guitar and singing. In the crowd is The Drifting Cowboys, a group of touring country-western musicians who happen to be passing through. They invite him to join their group, and music history is made.

   Iacta alea est  I'm gonna guess this young singer was Hank the First. And the actor looks like Tony Perkins.

   StormCnter  Yes, George Hamilton portraying Hank Williams, with Susan Oliver in "Your Cheating Heart. Hamilton lip-synced the songs to the voice of Hank Williams, Jr. in the film. Iacta and Gram each get tickets to Hank Jr./ Bocephus's next performance.

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  In the movie, "The Last Picture Show", what movie is on the theater marquee as "the last"?

   Richdet  Don't know but guessing it has to be a John Ford title, probably with John Wayne, since the director of "Picture Show," Peter Bogdonavich, venerated John Ford.

   StormCnter  Good Tuesday, Rich. The movie was "Red River". In the book, the marquee had an Audie Murphy movie, according to various sources, but I haven't found the title. But, by guessing correctly at a John Ford movie, you are awarded a coupon for a banana split at the Archer City Dairy Queen. Archer City is Thalia in the movie. I've visited Archer City a couple of times and people in the stores and on the sidewalks are anxious to describe their experiences of being in the movie. If all those stories were true, "The Last Picture Show" would have had more actors and extras than "the Ten Commandments".

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  (1892-1962 ) He learned to ride a horse while still a very young boy. His family moved to California when he was seven years old. As a teenager he worked with horses on a ranch, which led to competition on bucking broncos at area rodeos. Director Francis Boggs picked him up to be an extra in a short cowboy film. Acting for this man was then a minor sideline, and he continued competing in rodeos to make a living. In 1912, he won the all-around championship at the famous Pendleton Round-Up in Pendleton, Oregon and the steer roping World Championship at the Calgary Stampede. From the 1920s through the 1940s, he was a major film attraction, ranking second only to Tom Mix as a western film box office draw. He successfully made the transition to talkies and as a result became a highly paid performer. He appeared in his own comic books and was wildly popular until singing cowboys such as Gene Autry and Roy Rogers displaced him. Who was he?

   StormCnter  Good guess, but this guy is a little more obscure, Hoot Gibson. His nickname was "hoot owl" as a kid, and he kept it. Just for taking a guess at a hard one, though, Iacta gets a vintage Hoot Gibson comic book.

   Gram77  I sort of thought that might be her but hats always befuddle me. I used to tease Rake and ask him to have someone remove their hat. He in turn would tease me.

   StormCnter  Rich is right. I offer a bit of apology for the hat. Maureen Stapleton is very identifiable without one. "Reds" was a boring movie. But, Rich gets one dance with Ms. Stapleton at the Stardust Ballroom.

   Gram77  Gig Young and a question......was he in the movie right below this with Fonda??? It's a bit early for me (6AM ) and my thinker is still fuzzy. Thunder storm woke me.

   StormCnter  Good morning, Gram. Yes, he's in the movie just below that you have also answered. I admit to having picked Gig Young's name from that cast. As your prize, you get to soap him up and shave off that ridiculous little mustache. That should take about 90 seconds, don't you think?

   Richdet  I don't know what Gig Young's real name was off the top of my head, but I do know that as a young actor he was signed by (I think ) Warners to a contract under his real name, eventually got cast in a movie where the character's name is "Gig Young," and the studio decided that name suited him, and from that point on he was Gig Young. Peformers have come by their stage names by some very odd routes, but his strikes me as especially weird. Lucky for him his character's name wasn't "Norman Bates" or "Keyser Soze" or even "Dude Lebowski."

   StormCnter  His real name was Byron Barr. Yes, we acquire names under strange circumstances. My daughter-in-law's mother, upon the birth of her first granddaughter, vowed she would be called "Grammy". The baby couldn't say Grammy, but could say "Gimpy" quite well. Declaring she would not be called Gimpy for the rest of her life, she tried and tried to coax "Grammy" from the little girl, but Gimpy she stayed.
