GENERAL TRIVIA QUESTION THREAD


Recommended Posts

Correct. Fay Bainter was Mickey Rooney's mother in "Young Tom Edison" and "The Human Comedy". Fay Holden was his mom in the Hardy family series. Spring Byington played Mrs. Hardy once, in "A Family Affair" , and Ann Shoemaker was Mom in "Strike Up The Band". It's your turn!

When the Academy honored Elia Kazan several yesrs ago, prior to his death, many in the crowd did not applaud. but at least 2 people in the audience gave him a standing ovation. Why did most of the crowd not applaud, and name 2 people in the audience who stood and applauded. Why did they do so?

You're on the right track. More specifically, both Beatty and Malden owed their careers to Kazan. Malden was given the opportunity by Kazan relatively early in his career to be in BOOMERANG, the stage and screen versions of STREETCAR, and WATERFRONT. Beatty was given the chance by Kazan to be in his first film, SPLENDOR. Your thread, cujas.

On second thought, cujas, your answer deserves to be considered correct. I was thinking ROCK AROUND THE CLOCK, which was released earlier the same year (1956). But THE GIRL CAN'T HELP IT was a much more significant film, and featured a score which was almost entirely rock and roll. Your thread.

Thank you cujas?too bad Hal March wasn?t also in *Daddy Long Legs*?

 

A character actor had a successful career as a dentist but after moving to the LA area he became active in a local theater group?many film roles of the affable sidekick type?regular roles in many TV series from the 50?s thru the 70?s?one character in particular is the one he?s most remembered for?

 

A character actress of many careers including lawyer and antiques dealer got into acting after moving to the LA area and becoming active in a local theater group?her first credited film role was in a major motion picture and she played a number of dowager types from then on?also appeared in many series of the early 50?s?

 

Who is the actor? Who is the actress? What was the theater group that gave them their start?
