Thank You finance. That's quite an overstatement but very kind and generous of you to say :)

I could probably name quite a few posters on the bds. that know much more about classic film. Books,listening to the intros and outros RO and Ben and guests share, hanging out on the bds and just watching tons and tons of films makes a 2%'er.

 

Here's a question about a film that I believe RO shared some info about

 

This film had last minute cast changes, so the leading man had no time to teach and go over routines with the leading lady. She had to learn it all on her own and in a hurry. Who were the 2 and what film???

Was this Royal Wedding (1951) - Fred  Astaire & Jane Powell ?

 

Fred had taught the previous dancers their routines and by the time Jane arrived, he had no time left - she was on her own.. and did a terrific job!

Hey Tingler, you are 100% correct :) ROYAL WEDDING, Fred Astaire and Jane Powell

 

Jane did a terrific job. The routine How can You Say You Love Me, When You Know You're a Dirty Rotten Liar, is great. Very vaudeville, like A Couple of Swells Judy an Fred did in Easter Parade. First June Allyson dropped out due to pregnancy, then Judy was fired so Jane Powell took the role. A very talented lady. Thanks and it's your turn

Robert De Niro lived in Paris for three months, eating at the finest restaurants in order to gain sufficient weight to portray a real life celebrity after his retirement.

 

Can you name this celebrity ?

Thanks, Kid.  This future TV star of Westerns was a trapeze artist and a model for the John Roberts Powers Agency before turning to acting.  Name him.
