   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  Final line of what fllm?
"Right after I got here, I ordered some spaghetti with marinara sauce and I got egg noodles and ketchup. I'm an average nobody. I get to live the rest of my life like a schnook."
Saturday at 07:19 EST .

   MeiDei  I haven't a clue, but I'll go out on a limb with this:
sounds like something Joe Pesci or Danny DeVito would say.
Saturday at 12:12 EST .

   StormCnter  One of those was in the film, yes.

Yesterday at 09:30 EST .

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  A man with an asthmatic voice telephones bank clerk Kelly Sherwood at home and coerces her into helping him steal a large sum from her bank.
   Saturday at 07:17 EST .

   StormCnter  The guy in the photo surprised me. His face is pretty familiar from television, but I couldn't recognize him here.
Saturday at 15:40 EST .

   Richdet  Movie title is "Experiment in Terror," very effective suspense movie. Lee Remick plays the woman in peril, Glenn Ford the hero. Bad guy played by Ross Martin -- couple years later he started his long run as sidekick on "Wide Wide West." Saw this in a drive-in -- the title lured us in.
Saturday at 16:36 EST .

   Richdet  That's Ross Martin in the picture. He finds many ways to menace Lee Remick, and invade her security, this disguise being one. Couple years later she starred in "Wait Until Dark" on Broadway, and scored a big hit with that too. Very effective as the Damsel in Distress.
Saturday at 16:53 EST .

   MeiDei  I saw Lee in WUD, excellent performance by her and Harry Guardino (he managed to get the audience to gasp ).
Saturday at 17:41 EST .

   StormCnter  Rich penetrates the disguise and names Ross Martin and the film. I haven't seen it, but it sounds as if it's one I would like. .

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  Film title? Actor?
   Saturday at 07:11 EST .

   StormCnter  What's in your wallet?
Saturday at 15:41 EST .

   MeiDei  It's either S.L. Jackson or Danny Glover - unless I hear them I get them mixed up.
Saturday at 17:43 EST .

   StormCnter  He is Samuel L. Jackson who is probably the most prolific actor in filmdom.
Yesterday at 05:40 EST .

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  One of his grandparents was a Cherokee Indian.He became an All Star Southern Conference halfback (and was earmarked by the Baltimore Colts ) before a knee injury and a car accident ended his football career. Enduring, strong-featured, and genial star of US cinema, (he ) started off in TV westerns in the 1960s and then carved his name into 1970/1980s popular culture as a male sex symbol and on-screen as both a rugged action figure and then as a wisecracking, "good olĂ©' boy." Early in his career he appeared as a contestant on The Dating Game (1965 ).He refused the role that earned Jack Nicholson an Oscar in Terms of Endearment (1983 ). To this day he comments that this was one of his most terrible mistakes. He was seriously involved with actress Inger Stevens shortly before her suicide in 1970. He has respectfully refused to discuss the relationship.
Who is he?
Saturday at 07:07 EST .

   MeiDei  The Inger Stevens mention throws me, but with that aside my best guess is Burt Reynolds because of the football and the Indian heritage clues.
Saturday at 09:09 EST .

   StormCnter  Yes, he is Burt Reynolds. You get free tickets to his Florida dinner theater, Mei, but hurry. His finances are fragile.
Saturday at 15:42 EST .

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  Do you know him?
   Saturday at 06:59 EST .

   MeiDei  Ricardo Montalban - I think
Saturday at 10:09 EST .

   StormCnter  He was married to Loretta Young's sister. Handsome man, don't you agree?
Saturday at 15:42 EST .

   MeiDei  Another one with a melodious voice; handsome - yes. Poor man suffered from some disability that made using his legs painful IIRC. Very much enjoyed him on Fantasy Island.
Saturday at 15:57 EST .

   Richdet  What, no picture of him from the "Wrath of Khan"?
Saturday at 16:32 EST .

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  This is not an official uniform. He is in costume for a long ago film. Do you know him and maybe the movie's title?
   August 18 at 17:01 EST .

   HopeandGlory  Is he Cary Grant? . . . don't know the movie.
August 18 at 17:30 EST .

   Richdet  Should I admit that I know what this is?

The title, I am pretty sure, is "Devil and the Deep." One of Grant's first roles as a naval officer. His commanding officer, lunatic Charles Laughton, suspects him of having an affair with his wife Tallulah Bankhead. Commander Laughton is wrong -- she is actually having an affair with Gary Cooper. (Quite a cast, and Coop and Cary young pups at the time. ) Laughton goes insane at the end, and intentionally drowns on his ship. Now that I think of it -- who could possibly forget this movie?
August 18 at 18:16 EST .

   StormCnter  Yes, he's Cary Grant in costume as Lt. B. F. Pinkerton in 1932's "Madame Butterfly", pursuing Sylvia Sydney as Cho-Cho San.
Saturday at 05:46 EST .

   Richdet  Oops. Back I go to the Wall dog house. Please forward my mail.

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  This quote regularly shows up on the "Worst", "Cheesiest" lists.

"I'm also just a girl standing in front of a boy asking him to love her."

   Tulsa  Nottinghill. Julia Roberts to Hugh Grant.
August 18 at 13:54 EST .

   StormCnter  Oh, well done, Tulsa.
August 18 at 14:32 EST .

   MeiDei  A seriously cringe-worthy phrase.
August 18 at 14:40 EST .

   Tulsa  Rhys Ifans plays Grant's seedy, horny roommate. I saw the movie twice on tv and enjoyed it. The line is unfortunate.

Ifans also played Mycroft to Jonnie Lee Miller's Sherlock in Elementary.
August 18 at 17:33 EST .

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  Title? Actor? For extra credit, what was unique about this movie?
   August 18 at 05:58 EST .

   MeiDei  Brando in a western?
August 18 at 09:45 EST .

   StormCnter  Yes, but what's "the rest of the story"?
August 18 at 11:59 EST .

   Richdet  Movie is "One Eyed Jacks" and Brando directed it.
August 18 at 17:40 EST .

   StormCnter  Mei and Rich are correct. It's the only film Brando ever directed, replacing Stanley Kubrick. It was a good movie, I thought.
Saturday at 05:51 EST .

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  This film's screenwriter credits the star for making it a success and establishing the screenwriter's career. The star, according to the screenwriter, was very unhappy making a film in Europe and wanted a role in "something different". Here is the plot. Do you recognize it (or them? )?
A hip L.A. private detective whose business has gotten so bad that he's re-using his coffee grounds, jumps at the suggestion of his friend to take on the investigation of the disappearance of the wealthy husband of waspish cripple. After finding a photograph of a former actress, he locates the alcoholic actress in a bar, plies her with booze, and takes her home to search her apartment while she's unconscious.

   August 18 at 05:50 EST .

   MeiDei  Paul Newman and Shelly Winters?
August 18 at 09:24 EST .

   StormCnter  So far you're right, Mei. Do you know the film?
August 18 at 12:02 EST .

   MeiDei  No, I don't.
August 18 at 12:22 EST .

   Richdet  Movie is "Harper," the Ross McDonald character Newman played a couple of times. Lauren Bacall, Janet Leigh, and others were in it. I think William Goldman is likely to be the screen writer; he certainly did "Butch Cassidy" for Newman. I read a piece in one of Goldman's books about writing for Newman, specifically "Harper" it seems to me. He also wrote several of Robert Redford's movies after "Butch C and the Sundance Kid." Nice pals for a screen writer to have.
August 18 at 17:50 EST .

   StormCnter  Yes, it's Newman and Winters in Harper and yes, William Golden is the screenwriter who benefited.
