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

Thanks 6's-

 

What Academy Award winning actor who spoke fluent Yiddish started HIS career as a female dancer in a chorus line? (not the show Chorus Line- an actual chorus line)

In what movie did Robert Wagner make his screen debut?

 

 

 

A lot of people -- I mean a LOT -- think Robert Wagner first appeared as the G.I. paratrooper who was inspired by the singing of Jane Froman (Susan Hayward) in "With a Song in My Heart" (1951).

 

But, according to the IMDb, Wagner actually first appeared in an uncredited role in the coming-of-age tale "The Happy Years" (1950).

 

Cheers,

Dan

Mr.6's- You were right when you wrote that the answer Robert Blake & Woman In The Window was a guess. I took a shot without looking it up. Blake actually did spend a year in prison before he was acquitted.And Woman in the Window as it turns out was released Nov.1944 2 months short of 1945.So you were right, I think that was a good quess without looking it up.

Okay, then:

 

Name a Cary Grant movie in which the most important character is never seen... at least, not in the flesh.

 

No, I'm not talking about "Harvey." That was a James Stewart film.

Dan- This again is a quess, first one that came to mind- Is it North By Northwest?- George Kaplan?

 

 

 

 

 

No, not George Kaplan. The character in question is a real character, not an alias.

 

The question, again:

 

Name a Cary Grant movie in which the most important character is never seen... at least, not in the flesh.

 

A new clue: The old Gus Kahn/Walter Donaldson song "Yes Sir, That's My Baby" plays an important role in the plot.

 

Cheers,

Dan
