What Do These Four Films Have In Common

1,371 posts in this topic

Okay, so I don't know the answer to Phroso question, but I'll throw my two cents in.

 

What do these four films have in Common?

 

A King In New York (1957)

Gypsy Girl (1966)

The Dead (1987)

The Godfather 3 (1990)

Well, you're jumping the gun somewhat, but all four movies were directed by the father of a cast member.

 

*A KING IN NEW YORK* (Charlie/Michael Chaplin)

*GYPSY GIRL* (John/Hayley Mills)

*THE DEAD* (John/Angelica Huston)

*THE GODFATHER PART III* (Francis Ford/Sofia Coppola)

 

Meanwhile, I don't have an answer to my question.

 

*I MARRIED AN ANGEL*

*STATE FAIR* (1945 and 1962)

*SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN BROTHERS*

*THE PRODUCERS* (both versions)

 

The hint is that all four of the movies feature familiar songs about the same topic.

Finance has it. After the winter we've all had, who wouldn't want to hear a song about spring? Sfpcc, your patience is appreciated. Finance's board . . .

"You know, at first, I didn't like you."--Ellie

 

"Oh, I'm like olives: you've got to get use to me." Una

 

Patter from the Queen of Tap's *Born To Dance".

 

All of your films co-star the marvelous Una Merkel.

Thank-you.

 

This next question involves what a writer can do to bring out the unusual or the potential of an actor.

The following artists were stretched by the touch of this writer to createng roles uncharateristic of their screen type or as some might say--beyond their usual perfromance.

 

Bing Crosby

Tony Curtis

Jack Palance

Cary Grant

 

This question isn't easy--but not so hard either.

Name the writer and the 4 movies.

Clifford Odets?

 

Crosby/ *THE COUNTRY GIRL*

Curtis/ *THE SWEET SMELL OF SUCCESS*

Palance/ *THE BIG KNIFE*

Grant/ *NONE BUT THE LONELY HEART*

Clue:

 

At least three Kurt Russell movies would qualify for this list. And several pirate movies.

Darryl Hannah's character in *KILL BILL* or Angelina Jolie's character in *SKY CAPTAIN AND THE WORLD OF TOMORROW* would also qualify their respective films for this list.

Close enough. All four of the movies feature a character, major or otherwise, in an eyepatch. Alexander d'Arcy's role in *HOW TO MARRY A MILLIONAIRE* and Ward Bond's character in *THE WINGS OF EAGLES* are supporting roles. Nice work, spfcc. The thread is yours . . .
