  1. *This thread is hilarious. I had no idea there was ever any debate on the pronunciation of "Chico"!* *Someone point me in the Tuh-rone vs. Ty-rone Power thread....I've heard his name be pronounced so many ways over the years....and I believe his friends nicknamed him "Tae"....I'm sure someone has to be debating this somewhere on the planet!* Hi LoveFilmNoir: I also agree that this thread is a hoot. I don't mean to undervalue the importance of the subject to those debating it, since what is important to one is unimportant to another. However, the debate has made me chuckle a few t
  2. Excellent wild guess, Mr. Sixes. It's your board. For those interested, here's some info about the speech from reelclassics.com: One of the most moving scenes in MRS. MINIVER is its finale-- the speech made by the vicar (Henry Wilcoxon) to the local community assembled in their war -ravaged church, the walls held up by braces and the summer sky clearly visible through the rafters overhead. This scene had such an impact on American president Franklin D. Roosevelt, that at his request the text was broadcast over the Voice of America in Europe and was printed on millions of leaflets dr
  3. Hi, Frank, Good guess, great flick, wrong answer. Here's the next clue: 2. Later on in the movie, our heroine ends up in a "School for Genteel Young Ladies" 1. In the first scenes of this "B" movie, the top-billed leading lady is a stowaway on a ship.
  4. Hello finance, That?s a good guess, but not the movie I?m looking for. I have no knowledge of any movie speech having been given the leaflet treatment other than the one I?m referring to in the question, but it?s possible that it?s not the only one. I?ll add that THE ACTOR IN THE MOVIE WAS PLAYING A VICAR. This is off-topic, but coincidentally, about five minutes before I read your post, I added The Mortal Storm to my ?record to DVD? list. TCM will play it on May 20, and I?ve never seen it. I?m really excited because I?m fascinated with Hollywood?s treatment of the war in Europe b
  5. Hi Charlie, I have both those movies, so I'll look for him the next time i watch them. Here's the next trivia question: At the end of a classic movie, there is a speech which was translated into several languages and placed on leaflets which were dropped into German-occupied territories during WWII. Name the movie and the character actor who delivers the speech.
  6. Thanks phroso 1. In the first scenes of this "B" movie, the top-billed leading lady is a stowaway on a ship.
  7. Hi Charlie, That's Jim Thorpe, who hailed from the booming metropolis of Prague, in what is now Oklahoma. I never knew he appeared in so many movies. What's interesting is that he seems to be an uncredited bit player in most of them, sad for someone who was considered one of the greatest athletes of all time.
  8. Hi Phroso, That should be Carnival of Souls, which I think was the last "B" horror movie I ever watched. I was a kid and I remember it really scared me. I've forgotten most of the details, but I remembered the beginning of the movie.
  9. Hi cagney, How about Jimmy as Biff Grimes in "The Strawberry Blonde"
  10. Hi traceyk, Bingo! Nice work. Powell, Loy, Tracy and Harlow were some combo. The board's all yours.
  11. Thanks finance. Here's the question: Four movie stars (two males and two females of relatively equal status) are signed to do a movie. In the script, Female A ends up with Male A and Female B ends up with Male B. However, Female A lobbies the studio to switch roles with Female B so that Female A ends up with Male B in the movie (because Female A and Male B are real-life sweethearts). The studio denies the request, much to the chagrin of Female A. The result, however, is a delightful comedy that sits proudly on the resumes of all four actors. Female A would later admit that the studio
  12. Hello Finance, I?ve seen 12 angry Men at least a dozen times and my niece came over to watch it last weekend for a paper she was writing, so it?s pretty fresh in my mind. With her help, I pieced this together (more than the seven you mentioned): 1. Fonda?s an architect 2. Robert Webber?s an advertizing man 3. Cobb runs a messenger service 4. George Voskovek is a watchmaker 5. Begley owns garages 6. Warden?s a salesman 7. Marshall?s a broker 8. Fiedler works at a bank (probably a teller) 9. Balsam says he?s an assistant head coach for a high school, but that doesn?t mean that he do
  13. Hi ms b, You forgot to mention that in addition to not being a very good dancer or actress, Ms. Keeler was no great shakes in the vocal department either. Truly, she was what Cosmo Brown would have called a "triple threat." And yet... ... there's something about her on the screen. She's not beautiful, but I can't keep my eyes off her. Maybe she's not very good, but I can't help but root for her. It's like I'm at a high school play and my kid sister is playing the lead, and I'm watching and listening with my heart instead of my eyes and ears. Ms. Keeler was one of the few actresses
