GENERAL TRIVIA QUESTION THREAD


Recommended Posts

Finance,

 

By "impact", do you mean they made a change in the way the movies were made or viewed? ..Or did they just appear in Hollywood movies, like Haya Harareet in "Ben Hur", Elana Eden in "The Story of Ruth" and Gila Golan from "Ship Of Fools" and "Our man Flint" ?

I always thought Daliah Lavi was from India. For some reason I keep confusing her with Chuck Connors' ex-wife....

 

Anyway, here's the question:

 

" Who operated a hamburger stand called "Tiny's Patio" before he became a radio personality and famous movie star ?"

Ok, I'll keep it going...

 

Both Tony Curtis and Robert Wagner wrote autobiographies...In both of these books, "American Prince" by Tony Curtis and "Pieces of My Heart" by Robert Wagner, the stars mentioned a famous movie actress that they both, at different times, had a short affair (one night stand?) with . Who was that actress ??

There was a well-known comedy film of the '30s, and one of the '50s, with the same title. The '50s film, however, was originally supposed to be released under another title. Give the title of the two films, and the almost title of the '50s film.

Oh boy. I was hoping not to get myself into this again, where there's more than one correct answer. I don't think the '30s version of SOME LIKE IT HOT really qualifies as a "well-known film comedy". The two films I'm thinking of were released in the early part of the '30s and '50s, respectively, and both are really well-known, with illustrious casts..

I'm thinking this must be "Monkey Business" (1931), an enjoyable Marx Brothers film, and the 1952 screwball comedy "Monkey Business" starring Cary Grant and Ginger Rogers.

 

The alternate title of the 1952 film is "Darling, I am Growing Younger."

 

Cheers,

Dan

OK, since this is general trivia rather than movie trivia, I'll take some liberties. The theme is "Sinatra in Vegas"

 

(1) At what casino did Sinatra first perform for an extended period under contract and why did he leave? (2) At what casino did he next perform (this is the one he is most closely associated with) and why did he leave? (3) To what casino did he go for his next contracted performances, and why did he go there?............The person who gets this wins a prize of $50 in chips.
