Not *North Dallas Forty*. The story is based on fact, from a book by a sports reporter who went

underground and fronted as a rookie to tell the story of Big League Football training. Many actual

NFL playears appeared as themselves in the film. Both the sportswriter and the actor who portrayed him did a lot of other good work in their respective fields. Released in the late 1960s.

Thanks, C?I knew it couldn?t be *The Longest Yard* - your last clue wrapped it up?here?s one:

 

A very hungry man shares his vision of the meal he?s pining for with his equally hungry pal - a juicy steak, potatoes, asparagus with Hollandaise sauce plus chocolate cake and ice cream?

Good work, it is?one of the earliest scenes in the film?in which Dennis Morgan is continually dreaming and fantasizing about food before he and his pal (Frank Jenks) are rescued at sea?your turn!

Thanks, Miles.

 

Again, a set-up duel. One man starts to step off the ten paces. The other does not walk; he turns around and stands still while the first man is still counting and pacing. The moving man whirls around on the count of "eight", but the other is waiting for him and shoots him. The man who cheated first walks over to the dying one, kneels down and mumers in admonishment, "That wasn't ten, Hoss."

"That wasn't ten, Hoss."

The duelists were Kris Kristofferson as Billy The Kid, and Jack Elam as Alamosa Bill in 1973's Pat

Garrett And Billy The Kid. Alamosa, not a bad guy, was a luckless lawman with an obligation to bring Billy in. Where he found him, Billy was surrounded by friends and supporters, so there was no question of arresting him. Alamosa opted for challenging The Kid to a duel and then trying to trick his way out of it. Didn't work.

 

This is a thread with possiblities . Let's open it up and see if we can get some more participation.

Thread's open.

A man with money he just won by gambling is stopped and robbed at gunpoint. Another man and his friend stops the robbery and very convincingly tells the robber to be on his way. The man who was almost robbed says he has no past and was born when he met him and his friend. Later, the three of them share a toast.

No, not ?Three Comrades??

 

Here?s another scene from the same movie:

 

A woman is seen strumming a guitar, singing in a slow, moody fashion, which is interrupted by someone entering the room. Later near the end of the movie, she is seen giving a memorable and uninhibited performance of the same song, while intoxicated, tossing her hair all about her.

It is Gilda.

 

At the beginning, Glenn Ford was almost robbed, when George Macready and his trusted cane/knife came to his rescue. Later, Glenn and George have a toast to them and George?s friend, his cane.

 

And, of course, Rita Hayworth sings a very memorable ?Put the Blame on Mame? near the beginning and end of the movie.

 

I saw it recently and loved it.

 

Your turn.
