  1. I'm guessing it would be *La Dolce Vita* (Nino Rota). Would you be referring to the opening of the movie where a statue of Christ is flown across Rome?... Seen as blasphemous by the Vatican, the movie ended being banned in some countries due to that scene and the general premise of the film.

  2. The movie is *Kind Hearts and Coronets* (1949), and Alec Guiness plays all of these parts: The Duke, The Banker, The Parson, The General, The Admiral, Young Ascoyne, Young Henry, Lady Agatha.

     

    Oh, and it has a great tagline: "A hilarious study in the gentle art of murder."

     

    Does TCM ever run this movie?

  3. 1. In what film was the following line, "Best part of the day, sundown" ?

    *Sundown*

    2. In what film did Lloyd Bridges say, "To rest is not to conquer" ?

    *The White Tower*

    3. In the film SAHARA, what was the name of Humphrey Bogart's tank?

    *Lulabelle*

     

    Thanks for reminding me of these movies...

  4. Dan, I keep hoping you'll give the answer to this quote... I can see the scene in my mind's eye, but can't remember the movie. A conversation between a man and a woman, I believe he's a scientist and they are in a lab. The quote is the woman's... What IS the film?

  5. The plot of this movie centers around a paranoid woman. Everyone thinks she's stressed out, but then she becomes hysterical and they start thinking she's totally lost it. I keep remembering one scene that had something to do with new construction and these girders high off the ground...

  6. As a boy, this composer from Austria was given piano instruction by legendary composer Johannes Brahms. He was nominated 18 times for Academy Awards for his scores and won three Oscars. He composed stock music (uncredited) for *Citizen Kane*, *Merrill's Marauders*, and TV's *Maverick* and *Sunset Strip*. He was Bette Davis's favorite film composer.

     

    This composer was featured on one of six 33? USA commemorative postage stamps in the Legends of American Music series, honoring Hollywood Composers, issued in 1999. A photograph of his right hand, holding a pen and writing notes on a musical score, appears on one of the 37? commemorative postage stamps, issued in 2003, celebrating American Filmmaking Behind the Scenes.

     

    Most anyone would recognize themes from many of his movies, especially two -- one released in 1939 and one in 1959. Who is he?
