sorry for the delay...I completely forgot...

 

How about a little Cary Grant Trivia?

 

1.  In what film does Grant whistle musical themes from his previous films?  what were they?

2.  Who says he hated his real name?  He named his terrier pooch Archie Leach..and mentioned his actual name in what film?

3. He wore this personal item in five films...even though it didn't always fit the character (hint..in the 40s)

4. In which film does he have no first name?

5. Later in his life, Grant had a personal item encased in Lucite as a keepsake...know what it was?

6. Which of Grant's films had the largest box office (US and Canada)?  This one surprised me...

7. For which studio did Grant make the most films?

8. The always-dapper Cary wore a tuxedo in 31 films...but wore a cummerbund in only one...know it? (not an obscure movie..shown often on TCM) 

9. In which film did Grant first receive top billing?

10. Grant shared 3 different LA homes with what other famous person (not any of his five wives..)?

 

some are easy...some maybe not...feel free to answer any or all!

This movie has one of the creepiest religious services filmed, not including horror movies.  The star would walk away from their career within six years of filming.  Name the film, director, and the two stars.

I wonder if Stompanato threatened actors in Hollywood like that.  He probably thought "this guy's an actor, I can scare him."  

 

Anyway, you are correct film lover.  Your thread.

Thanks Star.

 

Gather round, it's story time again.

 

Once upon a time, an actress went to England to do a movie.  The actress' boyfriend threatened one of the actors with a gun because the boyfriend thought the actor was having an affair with his girlfriend.  The actor proceeded to deck the boyfriend.  Not long after this happened, the boyfriend went back to the U.S.

 

Name the movie, actress, actor, and the actress's boyfriend.

As this actor was driving through his studio's lot, he waved at a famous director he had never met.  The director was so impressed with the actor's wave that he cast him in a major role in one of his pictures, which resulted in the actor's skyrocketing to fame..  

 

Name the actor, director and the movie.
