I have an idea for what (I think) will be a fun and challenging new game for this forum.

I’m calling it Mash-Up Alternate Title.

The idea is to create an alternate title for a movie by “mashing-up” elements from one or more other movies that have a connection to the movie you’re creating the alternate title for.

To solve the puzzle, someone has to identify the actual title of the movie as well as explain the elements being referenced in the alternate title (in other words, how they’re connected to the movie that the alternate title has been created for).

Here’s an example of one of these alternate titles:

When Sundance Met Fanny

The solution would be:

The Way We Were, which starred Robert Redford (who played the Sundance Kid in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid) and Barbra Streisand (who played Fanny Brice in Funny Girl)

 

Here’s the next alternate title for someone to solve:

I Saw Alfie Kissing Superman

The Magnificent Seven with Steve McQueen (who was Thomas Crown in The Thomas Crown Affair) as one of the gunfighters who joins the group led by Yul Brynner (who was The King in The King and I). 

This was a good one, lavenderblue! I loved how you used "crown" and "king."

Becket & Velvet & King & Gwen

Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf - Richard Burton as Becket, Elizabeth Taylor as Velvet in National Velvet, George Segal as Corporal King in King Rat and Sandy Dennis as Gwen in The Out of Towners.

That's Words And Music.  Tom Drake, the boy next door in the song from "Meet Me In St. Louis" is Richard Rodgers, and Mickey Rooney, Andy Hardy in all of those Hardy family movies, plays Lorenz Hart.

Next: Professor Moriarty electrifies The Wolf Man

Princess, I think I may have the answer, but I need some help on this one.  I’m guessing that Professor Moriarty is George Zucco and the Wolf Man is Lon Chaney Jr.  If this is correct, they appeared in two films together, The Mummy’s Ghost and House of Frankenstein, and I don’t know in which one the Professor electrified the Wolf Man.

Is any of this correct?

Lon Jr is correct, but keep on working.

Lee Marvin (Monte Walsh in Monte Walsh), teamed up with Burt Lancaster (Elmer Gantry), Robert Ryan (Ty Ty Walden in God’s Little Acre) and Woody Strode (Sergeant Braxton Rutledge in Sergeant Rutledge) to search for Jack Palance (Jack Wilson in Shane) in The Professionals.

Blanche Hudson = Joan Crawford in WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO BABY JANE, and I think Steve Austin = Lee Majors in THE SIX MILLION DOLLAR MAN, so that makes it STRAIGHT JACKET

Anthony, it's real good you didn't wish George Bailey into the corn field! It's real good!
