GENERAL TRIVIA QUESTION THREAD

Recommended Posts

Is this James Stewart and The Murder Man? Depending upon the time frame that that movie was made, Virginia Bruce was either still married to or had just divorced John Gilbert.

Sorry, the actress was much better-known than Virginia Bruce. '40s film.

Hint: Actually, even though her husband was a legendary actor, the actress in question was more legendary than he was.

Thanks DGF.

 

Byron Barr took his screen name from a role he played in a movie.  Who did Byron Barr become and what was the movie he took his screen name from?

Thanks.  Changing one's professional name to the name of a character has been done several times in Hollywood history.  Jane Powell and Anne Shirley both took their names from characters they played.  So did an actor named Justus McQueen.  What name did he adopt as his own?

Correct, KarmaGirl.  Justus McQueen played Pvt. L.Q. Jones in the 1955 movie "Battle Cry".  He then adopted the character's name as his own professional name.  Personally, I kind of like his original name more.  

 

KarmaGirl, you're up next.

"Superman" was on mostly in the '50s. TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD was released in 1962. I'm confused.

I believe the timeline(s) for Superman in comic books are more corrupted than those of Star Trek. I think it's supposed to be a more recent Clark Kent (DC Comics) who's favorite movie is To Kill A Mockingbird.

I believe the older Clark Kent's favorite movie was THE WOMEN.

Thank you, KarmaGirl; DGF

 

Next:

 

It is stated (arguably, IMO) Holly Hunter is one of three actresses to receive an Academy Award for Best Actress in the post-silent era for a specific type of role.
 
Can you name the other two actresses? Type of role optional.

Wild guess--Jane Wyman and Marlee Matlin

In this movie, a man buys presents for two women, and then mixes them up, giving each woman the wrong gift.

Another Hint:  Even though this was an English movie, the female star was a beautiful American.
