1959 in England, 1960 in USA, and I found one reference to '61. Is 49 years not old enough?

If that's the case, I apologize.

Whew! I thought I would have to dredge up 10 more clues. The team leader (in the sewers in his

tux) is Jack Hawkins. The multi-Oscar man is Richard Attenborough. The "Argonauts" and "required reading" clues refer to the fact that the organizer sent each prospect a copy of a novel entitled The Golden Fleece, about "a group of American gangsters" and a well-organized bank heist. He asked them to read it before meeting with him at a fancy restaurent.

He also sent each man a cut-in-half 5-pound bank note, promising them the other half if they showed up. They were all in such a position that this was an effective lure.

 

Metry Road, its yours.

No, not 'Just Imagine'. But thank you Metz for bringing this movie to my attention. I checked it out at IMDB. A campy, Art-Deco SciFi musical. Jeez, they don't make 'em like that anymore, and I don't think they ever did. What a unique antique, Busby Berkeley meets 'Things To Come' and 'Metropolis'.

 

3. Freedom from traffic jams would be a good start.

 

Regards
