   MeiDei  Actually, it's the picture that was picked to go w/previous quiz (answer - whiskey ) but would provoke an error page repeatedly. Same picture, different source, and
you get a win! Life is good.

   MeiDei  The adventure-drama Blood Diamond (2006 ) told about African civil war and a conflict zone within which specific country?
•Sierra Leone
Yesterday at 09:41 EST .

   MeiDei  The film's setting was the late 1990s country of Sierra Leone, torn about by conflicts between the government and rebel forces, partially over the trade in conflict or "blood diamonds."

   GO3 Carrie Fisher said: "Anyway, my father was best friends with a man named Michael Todd. Mike Todd was married to Elizabeth Taylor. Mike Todd died in a plane crash, and my father consoled Elizabeth Taylor with his penis."

   MeiDei  Many years ago my brother used to make an annual 5 day trip to Vegas, and met Debbie during one of her shows, she always chatted him up on each successive visit. When his trips became bi-annual, she noted the lapse of time - more so when he made his last trip after a 5-6 year stretch; needless to say - he adored her. Of the 3 above she's the most personable while Liz would have been considered the most "interesting" - and him - I don't think anyone ever forgave his behavior.

   GO3  I believe the perception of Debbie in a public venue. However, when the History Channel was running a series on Las Vegas in the 90s based upon the book Casino (earlier quiz ) she made quite an "interesting" statement in an interview. Here's this petite, darling who said, "Well nobody ended up buried in the desert who didn't deserve it." I was frankly stunned she had that attitude, but maybe to be accepted into the inner sanctum she went along with the bad stuff.

   MeiDei  IIRC Debbie's last husband went through all her money and left huge bills for her to pay as well - thus her return to working non-stop. (Maybe she was thinking he was one that beat the odds at desert sharing ).
My brother had no illusions about being special - indeed, he marveled at how well she knew her audience, making them feel the love - especially when she worked the room between sets. She had a gift that kept her admirers coming back for more. Carrie describes her as being frail today - from an interview about their mother/daughter upcoming 2017 HBO Special.

   StormCnter  We saw Debbie Reynolds in a one-woman show in Dallas just a few years ago. She surprised me with her pep and laughter. We had gone to hear the Dallas Symphony in concert and hadn't realized Reynolds was also on the bill.

   GO3  The Murray Hamilton quiz reminded me of another character actor (pictured ) who I think was one of the best actors America ever produced. He was born in Miami, but went to University of Texas on a Tuba scholarship (no kidding ). After one semester, he joined the Navy and was on a destroyer in the Pacific. Going back to college he decided to go into theater and drama. He missed out on the lead role in Elmer Gantry because of a 50 foot fall down an elevator shaft which nearly killed him. His roles in movies and TV are almost too numerous to mention, but he is best known as being in several Clint Eastwood movies and in the first three Batman films. He passed away in North Carolina in 2009. Who is he?

   StormCnter  Good quiz, GO3. He's another one of my many favorites. He was Bud's dad in "Splendor in the Grass", only one of many well-done roles in his career.
Yesterday at 04:41 EST .

   MeiDei  Recognize the face, remember some of his roles - not a clue to his name, perhaps even with a multiple choice list.
No help from me, sorry.

   Gram77  Just hit me this morning, I think this might be Pat Hingle.
Yesterday at 11:14 EST .

   GO3  Gram got it! Pat was the best imo.

   MeiDei  Which film-star pairing faced romance in various settings (a political campaign, a courtroom case, a golf championship, and their daughter's impending inter-racial marriage )?
•Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire
•Irene Dunne and Cary Grant
•Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy
•Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks
Yesterday at 20:46 EST .

   Safetydude  I believe the marriage clue gave it away; it was Tracy and Hepburn.
My final answer.
Yesterday at 22:04 EST .

   MeiDei  Yep - nicely done just the same.
Yesterday at 22:35 EST .
