CUBA

 

Si, Señor! All four movies have scenes set in Cuba, which is very much in the news this week:

 

1. "The Old Man and the Sea" (1958) -- The title character played by Spencer Tracy is a Cuban fisherman.

 

2. "Topaz" (1969) -- Sir Alfred Hitchcock's final film of the 1960s is about international political intrigue during the 1962 Cuban missile crisis.

 

3. "The Godfather Part II" (1974) -- Several segments of Francis Ford Coppola's Oscar-winning sequel take place in Havana on the eve of Fidel Castro's overthrow of the government of Fulgencio Batista.

 

4. "A Few Good Men" (1992) -- The entire film revolves around a deadly incident involving Marines at the U.S. Navy base at Guantanamo. 

 

The movie scene that a lot of people have been talking about in the last couple of days is this one:

This one is easy.

 

What were most of the main actors sent to and what did they escape from?

Characters who were sentenced to Devil's Island

 

Correct! I knew you had it! All four films featured characters who either were confined to the penal colony in French Guiana -- or escaped from it.

 

I could have used "Papillon" as a clue, but that would have been a dead giveaway. 

 

Nice job! It's your thread again.

I can't think of any that aren't either too difficult or too easy. Why don't you do some more?

Death by knife.

 

You're half right! But it has nothing to do with a weapon.

Death caused by the "villain" ?

 

Well, that's close, but not exactly. Here's a hint: The Rosetta Stone for this one is "Taras Bulba." If you can figure that one out, the others will quickly fall into place.
