GENERAL TRIVIA QUESTION THREAD


Recommended Posts

Name the movie actor who appeared in more than 100 films and over 60 TV roles, but was the star only once. He did almost all his work in the USA, yet never played an American.

 

This actor appeared with Bette Davis, Marilyn Monroe, Claude Rains, and many other stars over his long career.

 

Who is he?

 

Cheers,

Dan

It's not Babara Bel Geddes or Nancy Marchand.

 

Alright more clues.

 

*The original clues were:*

 

Name this actress:

 

Her feature film career spanned 67 years.

 

She was nominated for an Academy Award just once.

 

Her eyes were a notable feature.

 

The year before she died she became a regular cast member of a network television show.

 

*The new clues are:*

 

Her last feature film was released in 1996 but over half of her total feature films were made in the 1930's.

 

In one film her character drowns.

 

In another her character's young brother is killed.

 

Remember those sad eyes.

Oh no!! I made a stupid mistake in one of the original clues!!

Her feature film career spanned *67* years not 57 years.

 

I am terribly sorry about this. Please forgive me!

 

I will edit the last post.

Well, I'm having fun guessing.

My first thought was Joan Blondell, but her long career fell short of 67. 67 years is a long time! My second thought was Lillian Gish, who doesn't fit the criteria either, but her long career on film lasted 75 years!

Back to my guessing.

Sylvia Sidney.

 

There is a thread in here called "who am I" or something like that. Maybe we should find it and revive it, and let this thread continue for general trivia.

scsu,

That's fine with me. I find it hard to ask general trivia that others don't already know or that can't be easily googled but that's just me. I was just trying to make it challenging within my capabilities to do so. I'll try and search for some good general trivia questions in case I get another shot. I will look for that "who am i" thread.

 

Now it's your turn to ask a general trivia question. :)

Chuck Berry composed "You Never Can Tell". I believe the version that John and Uma danced

to in Jackrabbit Slim's joint was sung by Brinda Lee.
