   StormCnter  This one should be easy. Can you decipher the movie title from the hints?
1. Activities of a choreographic nature with lupine creatures
2. Pilferers of the misplaced storehouse of scriptural material
3. Altitudinous area with a dysfunctional vertebral column
4. Trio of individuals who employ obsolete firearms technology

   StormCnter  "A vengeful New York transit cop decides to steal a big batch of subway fares; his foster brother, a fellow cop, tries to protect him."
This film ranks as one of the biggest financial bombs of its release year. Can you name it and the stars in the photo?

   Gram77  This is Money Train with Snipes and Harelson. Can't remember her. By the way, what ever became of Snipes?
2 hours ago .

   StormCnter  Good morning, Gram. You're right on with the answers. She is Jennifer Lopez. As for Snipes, he just got out of several years in prison for income tax evasion and fraud. That was in late 2013. I don't know what he's been doing since then.

   Mike PHX  I spend all my days watching Ice Staion Zebra, covered only by a filthy sheet. My Mormon minions are very good at making sure I have tons of fresh Kleenex boxes around so I touch nothing with germs. I have a full long beard and long gray hair to match. In my day I made love to some of the most beautiful women in the world.

   Mike PHX  Sorry, wrong. The correct answer is...Mike PHX.
Who's Howard Hughes?

   GO3  The guy who had a similar lifestyle to you.
7 hours ago .

   StormCnter  He had separate refrigerators for himself and his wife so she didn't contaminate anything of his. Once, in the long ago, I toured the Spruce Goose when it was at Long Beach. I don't know where it is now.

   GO3  Haven't seen any quizzes lately, so forgive me if I do another 007 question.

In Skyfall (2012 ), it is not stated directly, but implied by a feature shown in 007's ancestral home (pictured )in Scotland and the layout of the grounds, that the Bond family belonged to which of these denominations?

a. Presbyterian
b. Episcopalian
c. Roman Catholic
d. Methodist

   Yesterday at 00:52 EST .

   HopeandGlory  OK! . . . This is a guess . . . Presbyterian?
21 hours ago .

   Mike PHX  Sunni
17 hours ago .

   GO3  Not Presbyterian which was the official Scotland denomination. The Bond family home had a secret tunnel underneath the moor to the chapel known as a priest's hole. These were used to shelter Catholics and priests who continued to practice their religion during the period when the Church was outlawed and they refused to obey the authority of the Church of Scotland (Presbyterian ). So the answer is "c" but it would be difficult to answer if you haven't seen the movie.

   GO3  This actor was born in St. Louis, MO, and earned a degree in art history from Yale University. He also wrote a syndicated art column in the 1960s, and founded an art gallery on the campus of East Los Angeles College. He was a menacing 6'4" and is considered a legend in the Gothic horror film genre. There were two remakes of one of movies with the leading men being Charlton Heston in 1971 and Will Smith in 2007. Converted to Catholicism shortly after marrying his third wife, a Catholic, while she became an American citizen for him.

Quote: "I sometimes feel that I'm impersonating the dark unconscious of the whole human race. I know this sounds sick, but I love it."

Who is he?
