   Gram77  He is Mario Lanza. Great voice but rather difficult to deal with.

   StormCnter  Good morning, Gram. Yes, he is Lanza, who died way too young. You will know the woman, too. She was married nine times and died only a couple of years ago at the age of 99.

   Richdet  Spoiler alert: read no further if you have never seen "Witness for the Prosecution," the fifties courtroom classic directed by Billy Wilder.

That said, I believe this is Marlene Dietrich in disguise as said "Witness" (or one of them ), one of the twists in the plot.

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  Who was the first director to win the Best Director Oscar for a film in which he was also nominated as Best Actor?

Woody Allen
Warren Beatty
Kevin Costner
Clint Eastwood

   StormCnter  From AMC: "Woody Allen won Best Director (his first Oscar win ) for Annie Hall (1977 ), a film he also starred in and was nominated as Best Actor. Beatty accomplished the same feat in 1981, Costner in 1990, and Eastwood in 1992. No one yet has won both Best Actor and Best Director for the same film."

   StormCnter  You wouldn't be expected to recognize the woman on the left, Gram. She is not named in any of the photo IDs I could locate.

You win a can of snake repellent for getting Holm, DeHavilland and the title.

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  Which of the following actresses has not been Oscar-nominated twice in the same year?

Cate Blanchett
Jessica Lange
Julianne Moore
Michelle Pfeiffer

   StormCnter  Pfeiffer has been nominated three times, all in different years (1988, 1989, and 1992 ) without any Oscar wins. Jessica Lange won one of her two nominations (Best Supporting Actress ) in 1982, while Julianne Moore had two losing nominations in 2002 and Cate Blanchett lost twice in 2007.

   Richdet  You can add Sigourney Weaver to the list of those who were nominated in the lead and supporting categories in the same year, losing both. Must be a test of one's acting skill to put on the frozen grin of the good loser for the tv cameras not once but twice in the same night. Fun times.

Barry Fitzgerald had the unusual distinction of being nominated for the very same role in both categories -- "Going My Way," losing best actor to co-star Bing Crosby but winning supporting actor. The Academy changed the rules to insure that never happened again. If your name turns up in the top five for the same role in both categories, you get nominated in whichever category you got the most votes in.

   Richdet  I can narrow this down to Dudley Nichols (he was a screenwriter in the 30s/40s for those for whom the name is unfamiliar ) and Sean Penn. I think if Penn had turned down an Oscar, I would know about it, so I am going with Penn.
May 18 at 16:11 EST .


   StormCnter  Rich wins with Sean Penn. And yes, the name of Dudley Nichols was unfamiliar to me. Thanks for clearing it up.
May 18 at 18:42 EST .


   Richdet  I did some research on the Dudley Nichols situation. He won the screenplay Oscar for John Ford's 1935 film "The Informer." The Oscars for that year were riven by various Hollywood unions boycotting the Academy because they expected the Academy to be a vehicle for union organization and negotiation with the studios, and the Academy wanted no part of that.

So Nichols turned down his Oscar in solidarity with the boycott by his Writers Guild brethren. The Academy mailed him his Oscar a couple of times, only to see him return it. So they put it in a trophy case, and gave Dudley a good leaving alone.

   MeiDei  He's Steve McQueen, I don't recognize her.
I think that's a light meter the fellow is holding up to her. My father used to do the same, to adjust his lights if need be, when he was taking a portraiture.
May 18 at 10:54 EST .


   Richdet  She is Tuesday Weld -- movie would be "The Cincinnati Kid." Looks like McQueen's toes are upstaging him in that shot.

   StormCnter  I'll bet that bathwater is cold, too.
Mei and Rich are correct. This was a good movie. I liked it.
