   StormCnter  (1928-2006 ) He began as a successful stage actor, gaining a Tony Award nomination. When he reprised the same role in the film version of that play, he won an Academy Award nomination for Best Actor. In his autobiography, "The Garner Files," actor James Garner stated that the actor, on the set, constantly abused the stunt crew. "He purposely wasn't pulling his punches during fight scenes, and he kept doing it despite my warnings to stop... so I had to pop him one." He was married four times, the last one for 36 years. He also had a successful television career.

Note: my plumber looks just like him.

   StormCnter  More GWTW trivia: One month after the book was published, David O. Selznick purchased the movie rights from Margaret Mitchell for an unprecedented $50,000. At the time it was the highest sum that had ever been paid for an author's first novel. Realizing he had underpaid Mitchell, Selznick gave her an additional $50,000 as a bonus when he dissolved Selznick-International Pictures in 1942.

   StormCnter  (1999 film ) In 1995, Mount Rose, Minnesota is preparing for its annual beauty pageant. Amber Atkins signs up for the pageant so she can follow in the footsteps of her idols, Diane Sawyer, and her mother, a former contestant. Amber and her mother Annette Atkins live in a trailer near their friend Loretta , in stark contrast to fellow contestant Rebecca Leeman , the daughter of the richest man in town, and her mother, Gladys Leeman , who is the head of the pageant organizing committee and also a former winner. Various business connections between the Leeman Furniture Store and the judges of the pageant cause many to speculate that the contest will be fixed.

   StormCnter  Yes, it's Kirstie Alley. Do you know the movie? It's a hoot. For getting Kirstie, you win a beauty pageant sash. If you can name the movie, you get a tiara.

   StormCnter  This should be an easy one.
1970 film - A new generation of Americans and Asians must deal with a changing island and world, one of them is a sea captain. Whipple "Whip" Hoxworth returns home to the islands to find his grandfather has died and left his fortune to Hoxworth's cousin, Micah Hale . Hoxworth, the black sheep of his otherwise very conservative and disapproving family, starts a plantation, staffing it with newly arrived Chinese indentured servants Mun Ki and his second wife/concubine Nyuk Tsin.

Mun Ki fathers children with Nyuk Tsin, all the while dreaming of returning to China and his first and officially "real" wife. Nyuk Tsin, named "Wu Chow's Auntie" (Wu Chow being their first son ) to support the traditional fiction that Mun Ki's official spouse in China is the real mother of his children, has other ideas.

   StormCnter  Hope got Heston, though the wrong movie. Gram got the movie and the gal. A frangipani lei for each of you and Gram gets a grass skirt, too. '

I loved this movie, too. When I was posting this little quiz, I was thinking I might read "Hawaii" once more. I've read it twice, but many years apart and it's one of my favorites.
