  1. Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous (2005): The opening is a schtick with Sandra Bullock wheeling a baby in a stroller into a bank, but the baby is really a doll with a camera watching the events in the bank unfold after Bullock's character is recognized.

    is there one in A Kiss Before Dying?

    It's not a cliff exactly. Robert Wagner's character goes over the edge of a steep drop created as the result of copper strip mining. I guess you could call it an artificial cliff created by capitalism and copper! He pushes his first girlfriend off a tall building. I'm not aware of any other high structures in the film, but it's been several weeks since I last saw A Kiss Before Dying.

  4. Bad Times at the El Royale (2018)

    Hotel or motel for the El Royale? I'll let the readers of this forum decide, which I think means you, TopBilled, because this is your category! If my vote counts, I would call it a motel based on its one-level structure.

    I thought the same thing when I saw that picture of Stephen Rea.  Rea's wife, Dolours Price, had ties with the IRA.   Say Nothing is a very compelling read.  

    By the way, if you are a fan of Stephen Rea, he's really good in a four-part murder mystery called Flesh and Blood that's showing on PBS stations.

    Dolours Price dies a while ago now. She and her sister were quite active in the IRA. But I'll say no more.

    I read Say Nothing because I heard the author in an interview about his book say that he was researching a murder mystery and inadvertently solved it by the time his research was done.  Fascinating interview and fascinating book. Well worth a read, so no spoilers from moi!

  7. Odd Man Out (1947)

    Say Nothing: A True Story of Murder and Memory in Northern Ireland is a 2019 book by Patrick Radden Keefe that mentions Stephen Rea. Seems Rea had some ties to the IRA. It's a really good book, too. I wouldn't be surprised if the book is made into a film at some point.

  8. Bit of film trivia related to this category: Sunset Boulevard (1950) was supposed to start with a scene with Joe Gillis's dead body already in the morgue, but it was cut after advance screenings showed that audiences found the scene funny when it wasn't meant to be.

    In NYC before FM, Cousin Brucie was all we listened to. Loved him. I had my little white and gold transistor  radio (plastered up to my ear) with me wherever I went.  the echo of the voice saying "Cousin Brucie, Cousin Brucie!. Every summer coming back from the Catskill Mountains, my dad driving, my mom in the front and my sister and I on the back seat and always the newest Four Season number 1 hit would be playing on the radio, Cousin Brucie the DJ of course. I also remember fondl,y Murray the K and his Swingin' Soirree. anyone else remember Murray the K?

    Murray the K -- the name is familiar, but I was a Cousin Brucie fan myself.

    I haven't been following this thread faithfully, so maybe someone else has already posted this: COUSIN BRUCIE IS BACK!

    On Saturday evenings from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. You can find him at http://www.insideradio.com/free/cousin-brucie-morrow-comes-full-circle-with-saturday-s-return-to-wabc/article_3448f324-eb48-11ea-9b3a-df2e1229de1c.html?fbclid=IwAR24p5V6AHLhNVSGQvkx8bSRsrFVjzzPC25vcwSHVMny35J8-mOFzaTmMFI
