  1. Excellent, wordmaster! "Sacker" it is! (No "III" necessary.)
  2. Very good, Metry. You nailed it! Your go.
  3. FURTHER HINT: Selling orange juice in the 60's.
  4. Imaginative guesses, stooge. But unfortunately, incorrect from top to bottom. :-( Keep trying, though! HINT: It's a movie from the 50's.
  5. Please let me know what you've been smoking and where I can get some.
  6. "Groucho" is to "bush" as "Rudy" is to...?
  7. A fatherly werewolf is all at sea When Counsel for the Pros. belittles Bridey-to-Be (and she from a circus family!). The kid who helps him turns out to be Seen through all too easily.
  8. Could it be that Langtry-loving Roy Bean in "The Westerner," perchance?
  9. "Stanley and Livingstone" Henry Hull ("Great Expectations") Spencer Tracy ("The Mountain") Henry Travers ("You Can't Get Away With Murder") Walter Brennan ("Meet John Doe") Cedric Hardwicke ("On Borrowed Time")
  10. Actually, the French counselor was in "Saint Joan." The corrupt sheriff was "His Girl Friday" and the squire was "The Devil and Daniel Webster." Well done!
  11. Name That Actor: Corrupt sheriff Underpaid Victorian clerk Famous debater New England squire Counselor to a French king Shavian menagerie keeper Heavenly maintenance man
  12. > Jean Dixon - My Man Godfrey ? Kee-rect! (Also Sylvia Sidney's sister in "You Only Live Once.") Take it away...
  13. Oh, and FYI... Edward Everett Horton was the tobacco company president in "Cold Turkey," Doris Nolan was a woman with a meal-ticket in "The Romantic Englishwoman," and Lew Ayres was the veep in "Advise & Consent."
  14. So far, so spot-on... except for Binnie Barnes, which is incorrect. The cynical maid (1st clue) had a secret crush on the title character of that movie, and the second clue stipulates she's the sister of the con's wife. You could also describe her in that movie as "sister of a woman on the lam."
  15. Since it's been two weeks with nary a nibble on this one, I'll rephrase it: Alcoholic beachcomber, engaged to a burlesque queen, dumps her for une folle, with the enthusiastic approval of the sister of an escaped con's wife, the director of a sanitorium, and a scientist whose brain has been taken over.
  16. Congratulations, wordmaster, for correctly filling in the blanks! Of course, it would have helped if I hadn't inadvertently left out a link in the chain (DOH!). "Leprechaun king" should have been followed by "Toyland's Jack"... Godfrey James (of both "Leapin' Leprecauns" and its sequel ) leading to James Martin (of Disney's "Babes in Toyland") Obscure actors but I didn't need to make matters even more difficult. My deepest apologies for the omission, and kudos to you both for figuring out the rest in spite of it. The Jean Arthur movie, by the way, is "Easy Living" (screenplay by Pr
  17. Since the leprechaun is fairly obscure, you might do better to concentrate on fur-coated Jean and the Bishop. The latter, by the way, was better known for playing the ukulele.
  18. No, Jack Burley has them all correct except the ones he's missing.
  19. HINT: The Jean who gets the fur coat is riding atop a double-decker bus when she receives it.
  20. FURTHER FURTHER FURTHER HINT: The vice president becomes president by the end of the film.
  21. We haven't had an actor chain (each last name = first name of next on the list) for a while... Italian mayor's wife Fields's niece Recipient of fur coat Bishop Leprechaun king FBI agent in drag Lieutenant chasing Chucky Patron of Hollywood Canteen Entertainer stranded in the Alps
  22. Great going, Jack! (I have to admit, I really liked that question. ;-) )
