   StormCnter  Who said it?
"I’ve turned down a lot of great roles, including the lead in Die Hard and the part of Han Solo in Star Wars. I don’t regret those. I do regret turning down the chance to play James Bond. The Bond people approached me in 1970 after George Lazenby had quit the role. In my infinite wisdom I told them that an American couldn’t play Bond and that they needed a British actor. They turned back to Sean Connery and I spent the rest of my life kicking myself."

   GO3  Al Pacino, whose birthday is today.
Yesterday at 08:46 EST .

   StormCnter  Maybe Pacino said it also, but he's not the fellow who made this quote in a newspaper interview. Anyway, Happy Birthday, Al.
Yesterday at 09:00 EST .

   GO3  I just know Al turned down Han Solo after reading his bio earlier.
Yesterday at 11:30 EST .

   Mike PHX  This is a total guess: Burt Reynolds.
Just based on the quote.

   StormCnter  Yes, he is Burt Reynolds. The newspaper article was about Sally Fields being the "love of his life", but I think he said the same thing about Dinah Shore.

   StormCnter  What actor, what film?
   Yesterday at 08:02 EST .

   GO3  Michael Douglas in Falling Down.
Yesterday at 08:47 EST .

   StormCnter  GO3, I apologize. I answered this to say you are absolutely correct and my response showed up for most of yesterday, but now it's gone. Yes, Michael Douglas in Falling Down, which I thought was a really depressing film.

   GO3  No problem. I think I saw your reply before it disappeared.

   GO3  Everyone probably best knows Kyle MacLachlan as FBI Agent Dale Cooper in Twin Peaks. Actually, Kyle played an FBI agent about three years earlier helping an LA cop track down several hyper-violent criminals. What was the name of this 1987 movie, and what was the FBI agent's amazing secret? Screen shot: FBI Agent Lloyd Gallagher (MacLachlan ) and LA Detective Tom Beck (Michael Nouri )
   Yesterday at 02:50 EST .

   StormCnter  I've always enjoyed Michael Nouri's work, way back to the Bay City Blues days on television.
Yesterday at 07:54 EST .

   GO3  Hint: Look in Agent Gallagher's left hand. That is his service "pistol."

   StormCnter  I haven't a clue, GO3. I'm sure someone else has the answer.
6 hours ago .

   GO3  The movie is a sci-fi thriller called The Hidden. The plot line would be considered stale today, but in the 80s it was pretty unique. MacLachlan is the host for a "good" alien chasing down a criminal alien who moves from one human host to another committing heinous crimes. I agree that Nouri is a good actor. He does a great job in this movie playing a tough, but befuddled LAPD detective working with an FBI agent who is not what he seems.

   StormCnter  In the remake of the 1951 science-fiction classic The Day the Earth Stood Still (2008 ), in what city does the flying saucer land?
New York
Washington, DC
Yesterday at 13:01 EST .

   GO3  I don't remember which city it was. Having said that, I've seen both; and both were propaganda tools of their day. The 1951 version was the first public lecture from the pro-communist disarmament crowd attempting to weaken us vis-a-vis the USSR. The remake was promoting a radical environmental, pro-animal rights theme. In retrospect, both were poor sci-fi and hamhanded political messages.
Yesterday at 01:30 EST .

   StormCnter  The answer is New York. "In the 2008 remake, the glowing spherical spaceship landed in Central Park in New York City. The extra-terrestrial flying saucer landed on the Ellipse in President's Park in Washington, DC in the original film." from AMC

   StormCnter  Tacky gossip, but apparently true: "On the set of this 1993 romantic (erotic ) thriller, (female star ) hated her co-star so much that she would bite his tongue during their lovemaking scenes, which would leave him unable to speak for up to a week!"

Big stars, big movie. Who are they?

   StormCnter  Sharon Stone, Billy Baldwin, "Sliver".

   StormCnter  From a list of Greatest Movie Characters, who is "Red"?
Monday at 06:30 EST .

   StormCnter  I'll leave this up a little longer. Additional hint: In the book, (this character ) was a ginger-haired, middle-aged Mick. Harrison Ford, Clint Eastwood and Paul Newman were all considered for the role that went to an obviously non-ginger-haired, middle-aged Mick.

   StormCnter  Morgan Freeman played Ellis Boyd 'Red' Redding in "The Shawshank Redemption"

   StormCnter  Who is he?
   Monday at 05:40 EST .

   Gram77  This is tricky. Immediately I thought Gary Cooper and then after a longer look I thought maybe it's John Wayne. Help!!!
Monday at 05:59 EST .

   StormCnter  So, Gram...what is your final decision?
Monday at 06:27 EST .

   Mike PHX  It's Coop.
Monday at 06:45 EST .

   Gram77  I'm going with Mike.
Yesterday at 11:45 EST .

   StormCnter  Mike's right. It is Gary Cooper.

   StormCnter  Who starred as the crazed Dr. Moreau in the original film The Island of Lost Souls, based upon H.G. Wells' adaptation of his 1896 novel "The Island of Dr. Moreau"?
Marlon Brando
Burt Lancaster
Charles Laughton
Bela Lugosi
Monday at 05:31 EST .

   Mike PHX  Laughton.
Monday at 06:48 EST .

   StormCnter  Mike is correct. Charles Laughton was in the 1932 version. Brando and Lancaster were featured in later remakes.

   StormCnter  1988 film quote:

   StormCnter  This 2012 film got good reviews and sounds like an entertaining movie, but I admit I had never heard of it. Anyone else?
   Monday at 05:28 EST .

   StormCnter  "Moonrise Kingdom" "The year is 1965, and the residents of New Penzance, an island off the coast of New England, inhabit a community that seems untouched by some of the bad things going on in the rest of the world. Twelve-year-olds Sam (Jared Gilman ) and Suzy (Kara Hayward ) have fallen in love and decide to run away."
