I assumed no one was looking at this thread anymore. I thought the first two clues were obvious enough.

Thanks Lawrence

An interesting read is Kirk Douglas' book I AM SPARTACUS. I've read 3 of his 10 or 11 books all very informative and interesting.

Two for the Road?

Correct Star. Love this film. I saw Two for The Road  in the early 1970's at a retrospective at MoMa. I never tire of this film and so glad TCM shows it. Good work, your thread :)

Excellent, lavender!  I have it in my collection and watched it just recently, but I can't remember what station I taped it on.  It might have been back when AMC showed good movies.

You're up next.

Paper Moon?

Oops!  I just remembered that Paper Moon isn't a pre-1970's film.

The Flim-Flam Man starring George C Scott and Michael Sarrazin.

That's right, Princess. The scene in which they find the moonshine whiskey and use it to pay their bill reminded me of Paper Moon, so I thought I'd give it a try.

Thank you.

Your turn.
