Shazzzaammm!

 

Next: name this movie

 

If I were a blonde bombshell, with a beautiful body, wearing a snow-white dress, standing over a subway grate so a rush of air could blow the dress up around my face.. I wonder what 1955 Billy Wilder romantic comedy film based on a George Axelrod play I could star in.. hmmm? I wonder.. it might could take me 6 or 7 years to figure this one out.
 
Could someone help me with the title of this film..

I was going to ask for another clue but I found my crystal ball

in the closet and was able to come up with a movie about a guy

who tried to woo this bombshell in a snow-white dress (what a

coincidence). He was a baseball player but couldn't get to first

base with her because for seven years she kept saying no, the

movie was called THE SEVEN YEAR PITCH. She turned him

down because he kept playing Rachmaninov's Second Piano

Concerto and she hated that one. The title of that movie rhymes

with another one called THE SEVEN YEAR ITCH and I know

I'm being absolutely silly, but I'll go with that one. Yes, I know,

farfetched...but I like rhymes.

 

:P

 

Just in the small event that I may possibly be right I'll give out

another tough one. Name the movie that takes place during the

Civil War, about a southern belle with an attitude, who has

something to do with a Butler, or something like that and who,

when she becomes philisophical ruminates about "tomorrow." I

know these clues are really obscure but I'm known for being

a tough S O B when it comes to questions.

EDIT: Oh look, someone's as smart as I am. Yours, Gipper....

Our story takes place in a small town, when one day our handsome young man and the town's best known citizen is involved in train accident. His legs are amputated for no reason.  When he wakes up and discovers what has happened, he utters the line "Where's the rest of me"?

Hello, Gipper

Confession...I didn't know the answer to this.

I had to google the famous line you quoted.

So even these easy threads are a trial for

challenged Laffite, ha. I should say though

that I am not a fan of the star of the movie.

I am smart enough, however, to see the relationship

between the star of this film and your screen name.

You obviously are a fan.

 

And so, since I cheated, I will defer to the

next person, who I am sure will toss off the

correct answer with all the aplomb that

Laffite lacks.

:(

 

Carry on...

Ok. I guess I'll do the honors. This is one of my favorite films and where else are you going to see the (usually) enjoyable and appealing Charles Coburn as "the baddie".

 

This is Kings Row (1942)

In this comedy / gangster film, recently released convicts buy out a luggage store looking to rob the bank next door. Comedy ensues and everybody wins out in the end.

Well, let me consult my trusty movie guide....

 

The movie in question would be "LARCENY INC", starring Edward G. Robinson and the then Mrs Ronald Reagan...aka Jane Wyman.

This epic takes place during a dispute in the U.S.

Dan,

 

I was actually thinking of "GONE WITH THE WIND" (1939) starring Clark Gable, Vivien Leigh, Olivia deHavilland and Leslie Howard., your answer could work too.

gone with the wind? huh... yeah i suppose that would kinda fit.

 

this silent film comic had a great gift for sight gags. he told the mgm bosses "you guys warped my character!"

 

he worked behind the scenes on a few marx brothers movies and last appeared decades later in a comedy set in ancient rome.

 

ps. forgot to add he was portrayed by donald o'connor in a bio pic that over-emphasized his drinking.
