   MeiDei  1997 Title? Actors?
Childhood friends Julianne Potter and Michael O'Neal had a deal to marry each other if they were still single by age 28. Now, four days before her 28th birthday, O'Neil announces that he's marrying a gorgeous 20-year-old named Kimberly. Suddenly realizing that she's actually in love with him, Julianne vows to stop the wedding at all costs. However, when she is appointed maid of honor, things get even more complex.

   MeiDei  This one is "My Best Friend's Wedding" with Julia Roberts, Dermot Mulroney, Cameron Diaz, Rupert Everett.
2 hours ago .

   StormCnter  Name that movie:
1. Great big thing stays above water for a while.
2. Locally popular maiden faces adversity but bravely looks toward tomorrow.
3. Unsophisticated beauty gains polish and sings about it
4. Teenager fruitlessly rages against status quo
5. Fleeing female is fatally showered
Yesterday at 06:33 EST .

   MeiDei  Must need coffee, not feeling too sure of my guesses but here goes:
1. Titanic
3. My Fair Lady
By the time I typed the first sentence I lost a better guess at #5; my first thought was Runaway (Fleeing ) Bride (showered ) but tossed that for "Fatally" - maybe the better guess will return.
Now to make a pot of coffee ....
Yesterday at 09:20 EST .

   MeiDei  OK - is 5 Psycho? That was my better guess. Have been toying with the idea that #2 is Annie (the sun will come out tomorrow ) but not fully committed to it : )
Yesterday at 09:25 EST .

   StormCnter  Yes on #1, #3, #5. You're too good, Mei. I'll have to work up some new ones. #2 is not meant to be Annie, although she does almost fit.
Yesterday at 09:38 EST .

   MeiDei  Good clues Storm, good clues ... I tossed out Cinderella (not locally popular ) and Miss Congeniality for Annie. Leaving #2 & #4 for those who are far better movie goers than I am.
Yesterday at 10:12 EST .

   StormCnter  22 hours is plenty long enough for a quiz to be unanswered. #2 is Scarlett O'Hara, #4 is "Rebel Without a Cause".
10 hours ago .

   StormCnter  Good morning, all. It's 4:48 AM here. I'll be back in a bit to add a couple of quizzes.
Yesterday at 05:40 EST .

   MeiDei  Good morning to you and all who visit here. The sun came out this morning after a long darkly grey & drizzly yesterday! I'm so very grateful we didn't lose power the other day during the blizzard (we got 20" ) but did lose it last night (for approx. 1-1/2 hours ) while we were sleeping; wouldn't know that we had but for the clock on the stove blinking.

   MeiDei  2014 Tittle/Actors?
Journalist Gary Webb happens upon a story that not only leads to the origins of America's crack epidemic but also alleges that the CIA was well-aware of the dealers who were smuggling cocaine into the U.S. and using the profits to arm Nicaraguan rebels. Despite warnings to halt his investigation, Webb keeps digging and uncovers a conspiracy with explosive implications. As a result of his findings, Webb's career, family and life come under threat.

   Richdet  Madeleine Carroll, probably the first of Hitchcock's "blondes" -- he seemed to have an affinity to cast his heroines as somewhat cool, even chilly, blonde types: e.g., Joan Fontaine, Grace Kelly, Kim Novak, Eva Marie Saint, Vera Miles, and Tippi Hedren.

Having made the transition from gangster to movie producer, Chili Palmer is ready for the next big move. Setting his sights on the music industry, Palmer enters a precarious business that has more than just temperamental musicians: Russian mobsters, rival producers and hit men are out to bring him down. From witnessing the murder of his friend to romancing a music executive's widow, it seems as though it might all fall apart, but Palmer has his ways.
