  1. The Dick Van Dyke episode called "The Brave and the Backache." It's the one where Rob uses one excuse after another to avoid going to Lake Sissy Manoonoo with his wife Laura. Mumford (1999) Lars and the Real Girl (2007)
  2. 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.
  3. Top Cat and Choo Choo Yosemite Sam and Bugs Bunny Foghorn Leghorn and George P. Dog (aka Barnyard Dawg), and Henery Hawk (I know I'm late, but I couldn't resist.)
  4. Casablanca (1942) (Probably the most famous in the states, I would guess.)
  5. 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.
  6. And still handsome, I might add!
  7. 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.
  8. Barefoot in the Park (1967) starts in the Plaza Hotel. The Out-of-Towners (1970) really wish that they could get into the Waldorf-Astoria.
  9. 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.
  10. 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!
  11. 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.
  12. The Killer That Stalked New York (1950) Panic in the Streets (1950) Both are about the threat of pandemics, which is a timely and relevant concept these days.
  13. 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.
  14. Television shows with scenes in a morgue Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries Silent Witness Van der Valk Crossing Jordan
  15. Johnny O'Clock (1947) Magic Mike (2012)
  16. Joe Versus the Volcano (1990) Bonnie and Clyde (1967) This one is a two-fer: It can go in yesterday's category, too. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969)
  17. Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? (1962) Bunny Lake Is Missing (1965)
  18. Dogman, a 2018 Italian film. I'm glad I didn't know that it was based on a crime in Italy before I saw it.
  19. How about the television show Northern Exposure?
  20. Walk East on Beacon (1952) East Side Kids (1940)
  21. Edward G. Robinson also took a bath in House of Strangers (1949).
  22. James Bond in all the Bond films. 😀
  23. 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 Or try www.abcradio.com.
