   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  Mei inspired me with her mother-daughter photo. You'll know these women, but I really liked the picture.

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  Born in 1930, he Weighed 11 lbs 6 oz at birth. He was a lifeguard and swimming instructor for the U.S. Army in the early 1950s, stationed at Fort Ord in California. According to high school friend Don Loomis, he avoided being sent to Korea by romancing one of the daughters of a Fort Ord officer, who might have been entreated to watch out for him when names came up for postings. He got his role in the 1959 television series that helped make him famous while visiting a friend at the CBS lot when a studio exec spotted him because he "looked like a cowboy." He wore the same poncho, without ever having washed it, in all three of his most iconic Westerns. He has 8 children by 6 different women. His name is an anagram for "old west action". Can you name him?

   MeiDei  Clint Eastwood? Probably a wild guess, who else wore a poncho in three westerns? The 8 children surprised me & had me doubt but his name in the anagram so I'll stick with it. : )

   StormCnter  Clint is the man! I'm assuming you don't want to wash his poncho even to meet Clint, so let's give you a weekend stay at his Mission Ranch Hotel in Carmel, CA.

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  Note: I'm pretty sure we've done this guy before, but maybe the clues are different.

(1917-2012 ) He spent 10 years in the United States Navy prior to acting. He was the only actor to star in all four "Dirty Dozen" films. He was the very first "center square" on The Hollywood Squares. While on location in Mexico, he and fellow cast member Charles Bronson found themselves with some extra time on their hands and decided to go to the nearest town to get some cigarettes. Still in full costume -- including bandoliers and pistols -- they mounted their horses and headed out. Along the way they were spotted by a truckful of Mexican "federales" -- federal police -- who mistook them for bandits and held them at gunpoint until their identities could be verified. He was a Master Mason and has been elevated to the 33rd Degree in Scottish Rite.

   Richdet  Ernest Borgnine? Never heard this story before. If it's Borgnine, I hope he gifted the Mexican federales with tapes of "McHale's Navy" for the duration of the shoot. Up his recognition factor.

   StormCnter  Mei's limb has cracked, wobbled a bit, but it held long enough for her to scramble down. Rich has Borgnine as the correct answer. Let's see, what to award. How about an Ethel Merman album?

   Richdet  "Annie Get Your Gun"! Fits in with my quiz above.

   StormCnter  Yes, on all of it. I thought the photo was timely. They are reenacting some wacko version of "A Christmas Carol". Your prize is a DVD containing a whole season of "The Odd Couple".

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  1987 film based on a memoir and the subsequent play: In 1949 Helene Hanff, in search of obscure classics and British literature titles she has been unable to find in New York City, notices an ad in the Saturday Review of Literature placed by antiquarian booksellers Marks & Co located at the titular address in London. She contacts the shop and chief buyer and manager Frank Doel fulfills her requests. A long distance friendship evolves over time, not only between the two but between Hanff and other staff members as well, including birthday gifts, holiday packages, and food parcels to compensate for post-World War II food shortages in Britain. Their correspondence includes discussions about topics as diverse as the sermons of John Donne, how to make Yorkshire Pudding, the Brooklyn Dodgers, and the coronation of Elizabeth II.

   StormCnter  Anthony Hopkins is right. The other star is Ann Bancroft. The movie (and the book ) are long-time faves of mine. "84 Charing Cross Road". In reward, here is a nice article from the Telegraph about the bookstore, the movie, the author, photos and an update.

   MeiDei  Very much enjoyed the read & will not pass up an opportunity to either find the book or see the movie again. This is slightly similar to another Hopkins movie of an overseas correspondence - the one about CS Lewis & the NYer he later married.

   Richdet  I don't remember "Charing Cross" the movie very well, but I would definitely second Storm's recommendation of the book. Probably would make a nice Christmas gift for any Anglophile or book lover on your list. Mei, the other movie you are recalling is "Shadowlands," with Hopkins and Debra Winger.

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  "Gone With the Wind" 1939: After Scarlett returns to a vandalized Tara, digs up a radish in the garden, then retches and gives her famous "As God is my witness... " line, the vomiting sounds were actually looped by whom? And why?

   StormCnter  The answer to this is that Vivien Leigh refused to make a retching and vomiting sound, saying it wasn't "ladylike". Olivia deHaviland looped the sounds, instead.
