The title "Angels Over Broadway" is a play on words involving the German for the name of one of the characters, named "Engel". Am I on the right track?

I have to admit that the actual answer is a lot simpler than that. It does have to do with the plural nouns in each of the titles, however.

That's it. And congratulations to the Kansas City Royals, who are in first place with only 157 games left to play. Nice work, finance. The thread is yours . . .

The Royals supposedly have, by far, the best farm system in the majors. Be patient.

Is it that the director of each narrates at one point or another?

 

DeMille for Samson and Delilah

Scorsese for The Color of Money

Allen for Radio Days

Redford for A River Runs Through It

Nicely done, lana. Scorsese has a brief voiceover monologue at the beginning of *THE COLOR OF MONEY.* The other three films are narrated by the directors. The thread is yours . . .

Thanks.

 

It's all in the way you see it, as to how the following movies are related:

 

(Please be as specific as possible when answering; when you discover the answer, you'll realize what I mean.)

 

*Breakfast at Tiffany's*

*Born Yesterday*

No. It has nothing to do with the characters, or the actors involved. (Movie titles, well, not necessarily.)

 

Instead think of the wind blowing on a farm and what to carry on a hike to prevent getting lost and you might get in the right...

To help move it along, I'll say to think of a globe (or a map), when trying to figure out the relationship of the following movies:

 

*Breakfast at Tiffany's*

*A Streetcar Named Desire*

*Born Yesterday*

*Sunset Boulevard*

I tried to get on the boards last night, but was having trouble. Don't know why. Was anyone else having any trouble?

 

Yes, that is right. But I was also looking for the places that each takes place in. Your turn.

Just to stay honest:

 

BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S/ New York

A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE/ New Orleans

BORN YESTERDAY/ Washington DC

SUNSET BLVD./ Los Angeles

*UNDER CAPRICORN*

*BUNDLE OF JOY*

*LOOK BACK IN ANGER*

*WINTER KILLS*

Clue: All of these movies are connected to a recently deceased movie legend, who only appeared in one of the films.
