   StormCnter  While starring in a 1965 Sam Peckinpah-directed movie, this major actor learned of vital scenes that had been cut due to budgetary restrictions. He offered to give back his entire pay for the film so the scenes could be added. The producer took him up on his offer, cancelled his pay, but then refused to allow Peckinpah to film the additional scenes anyway. Do you know the actor or the movie?

   StormCnter  Strong resemblance, I agree, but that's not the answer. Think Empire State Building, Bettijo.

   StormCnter  2009 film: Ryan Bingham makes his living traveling to workplaces around the United States and breaking the news to workers that they have been let go for employers unwilling to do it themselves. Ryan also delivers motivational speeches, using the analogy "What's In Your Backpack?" to extol the virtues of a life free of burdensome relationships with people as well as things. Ryan relishes his perpetual travels.

   MeiDei  Well we all recognize Clooney, I saw this movie but it didn't really hold my interest long, just remember him at airport.

   MeiDei  She made her screen debut in George Roy Hill's 1979 film A Little Romance, starring opposite Sir Laurence Olivier. Soon after, she was featured on the cover of Time magazine and dubbed "the new Grace Kelly". She has since appeared in several notable films, including the 2002 film Unfaithful, which earned her nominations for an Academy Award, a Golden Globe and a Screen Actors Guild Award. She has also starred in The Outsiders, The Perfect Storm, Under the Tuscan Sun, Cinema Verite, and in 2013, Man of Steel..

   Gram77  After my usual staring game I think this might be a very young Diane Lane.

   MeiDei  2006 film

After years of no contact with his Uncle Henry, London banker and bond trader Max Skinner learns that Henry has died intestate, so Max inherits a ch√Ęteau and vineyard in Provence. Max spent part of his childhood there, learning maxims and how to win and lose, and honing his killer instinct (at chess, which serves him well in finance ). Max goes to France intent on selling the property. He spends a few days there, getting the property ready to show. Memories, a beautiful woman, and a young American who says she's Henry's illegitimate daughter interrupt his plans. Did Max the boy know things that Max the man has forgotten?

   StormCnter  1940 film: After seven years, lawyer Nick Arden has his wife Ellen , missing since her ship was lost, declared legally dead so he can marry Bianca . It turns out however that Ellen was merely shipwrecked on a deserted island, and has been rescued. When she returns home, she learns that Nick has just left on his honeymoon with his second wife.

   MeiDei  The obvious is Cary Grant & Randolph Scott, the mind is blank after that.

   StormCnter  Gail Patrick and Irene Dunne. The film is "My Favorite Wife". I was going to suggest a weekend on that desert island with Randolph Scott (yum ), but rumor indicates he might prefer Rock Hudson on his island. So, how about your choice of Gail Patrick's or Irene Dunne's hat. A nice chapeau for the Easter Parade.

   MeiDei  It's a moment like this that makes me glad Carmen Miranda wasn't cast in Irene's part : ) Randolph on an island full of coconuts, papaya & guava for the picking sounds like fun but you're probably right, he'd prefer the wild fruit. : )

   StormCnter  I had no idea these guys were in a movie together, but obviously they were. It's a 1960 film. The guy on the left plays the butler and his name wasn't familiar to me. But, the other two men are the quiz. And maybe the movie?

   Richdet  Robert Mitchum and Cary Grant (and Jean Simmons I think and Deborah Kerr ) in "The Grass Is Greener." It pops up on tv once every 14 years or so. Looks like fun, going by that pic. Mitchum seems to be having a good time doing a comedy. Looking uncharacteristically the romantic leading man type. Like the hair. Like the glasses -- is he imitating Cary Grant I wonder in that scene? That is, before shooting him?

   StormCnter  Well done, Rich. The butler is Moray Watson. You are awarded a bag of Scott's Turf Builder so no one's grass is every greener than your own.
