GENERAL TRIVIA QUESTION THREAD


Recommended Posts

No crushes this time, but I DID enjoy watching  her rumba scene. No, just a great film. One of the best first 10 minutes in all of movies. Inspired.

Try this one. One of my faves of the genre.

Thanks laffite :)

An Oscar winning actor had a son who was a writer. The son wrote a screen play based on the experiences  when he was younger. 2 characters in the film were based on the father and son. Who was the famous father, the son, the film and extra for the 2 characters based on father and son and the actor and  ( actress) that played them in the film ???????

This movie has got to be The Bad News Bears (1976). Written by Bill Lancaster, the son of Burt. I assume that Walter Matthau's character was based upon the father and, therefore, Tatum O'Neal's character was based upon the son.

Hi Liam, haven't seen you on the bds. in a long time, glad you're back. Yes of course it's The Bad News Bears. Bill Lancaster wrote the scrrenplay. It was a top money maker in 1976 had 2 sequels and a tv series. Yes, Walter played Burt's part and Tatum O'Neal's role was based on Bill. I'm sure Burt was very proud of his son. Great work, hope you stick around, it's your thread :)

It's been a while and we haven't heard from Liam.  It's pretty obvious that my answer was correct, so I'll post the next one.

This past weekend TCM showed "Sun Valley Serenade" which featured The Glenn Miller Orchestra.  Glenn played a bandleader named Phil Corey.   What was the name of his band in the movie?  It was not Phil Corey and his orchestra.
