Yes, he did. But with what? Cyanide? Rat poison? Name the weapon.

I am only guessing. Since he used the same poison on Mrs. Spool and she didn't notice any difference, I am going to say Arsenic?

Well, the correct answer is Strychnine. Dunno how (or if) that compares to Arsenic, but they both sound pretty darn lethal.

 

Go ahead, Jen, the board is yours.

Name the actor who was a veteran of over 200 films and more than 100 TV appearances, and whose last words were "What a beautiful place to die."

John Carradine? (what a voice!)

"Milan. What a beauiful place to die."

 

 

 

 

 

Right again, sixes! You're pretty sharp these days.

 

I remember when I was young, I thought John Carradine had been, somehow, granted eternal immortality, because he was in pictures as long ago as "Bride of Frankenstein" (1935) and as recently as "Peggy Sue Got Married" (1986). Didn't think anyone could live that long. Then, of course, I grew up and realized that quite a few actors (and actresses) have lengthy careers.

 

Cheers,

Dan

Good guess, sorry, no

---one role was offered to a real civil rights activist, who turned it down.

Here's a *Guess the Movie*?

Which well-known 1945 film noir, featured an actor who, in real life, was sent to prison for the murder of his wife?

Good guess LB,

but Blake was acquitted, and WITW was a '44 release.

 

hint: the actor turned to landscaping, after being black-balled by Hollywood after a vicious, jealous attack on a well-known fellow actor.
