That was a tough one, Starlit.  Now, there was an actor who played the same role multiple times in a film series.  His character was always known by the same name except in the first movie in the series that he was in.  In that movie, he was known as Boothroyd.  Can you name the movie and the actor?

During a housing shortage due to the Olympic games, an older man and a younger man share an apartment with a young woman.  The older man plays cupid.  It's not "The More the Merrier".

 

It's the remake, 1966's Walk, Don't Run, starring Cary Grant, Jim Hutton and Samantha Eggar.

Besides playing "The Wolf Man" in several movies, Lon Chaney Jr. played the Frankenstein monster in another movie.  Can you name the movie?  He actually played the monster in yet another movie, but very few people know about that fact. If you do, can you tell us?

Very close, Lavender.  This question has been here long enough, so I'll tell you that it was "The Ghost Of Frankenstein" from 1942.  In those years, Universal was cranking out monster movies with many of the same cast members.  This movie also included Evelyn Ankers, Bela Lugosi, and Ralph Bellamy, all veterans of the original Wolf Man movie.  The other movie where Chaney played the monster was actually "Abbott And Costello Meet Frankenstein".  As you know, in that movie, Chaney played Larry Talbot, who transforms into the Wolf Man.  Veteran western heavy Glenn Strange played the monster, as he had in "The House Of Frankenstein".  There was a scene where the monster was supposed to throw Dracula's female assistant through a plate glass window, but Glenn Strange had a bad back and couldn't do the scene, so Lon Chaney Jr. put on the Monster makeup and threw the woman through the window.  Now, the next time you watch that movie, you can look for that scene.  Actually, we have it here.

 

 

 

Lavender, you were close with your answer, so you get to go next.

Thanks, lavender.

 

When an overhead light comes crashing down on a movie set, a bit player saves the leading lady from being injured.

That happened to Margaret O'Brien while filming Meet Me In St Louis ?? (not sure if you mean it's part of a plot in a film or a real event. Although Margaret wasn't the leading lady, in real life that did happen on the set of the film, so even if that's not the answer you're looking for, it's an interesting bit of trivia  :)

Yes, that did happen to Margaret O'Brien, lavender, and it wasn't any accident.  I believe the person that did it served some time. I actually used that piece of trivia for a trivia question a long time ago.  However, what I described is from a movie.  The incident is accidental and happens to the female star.

 

Next clue:  While recovering in her dressing room, the bit player is summoned so that she can thank him.  Finding him attractive, she phones him later that day to ask him if he will escort her to a premiere that night.
