Most of the names used were of people who were, at various times, involved in scripting, critical comment, The subject himself worked in that world, and wrote of it. Also made one appearence as an actor. Check the names and see how many of them have a filmography.

This star made the longest acceptance speech at an awards show and the next year a time limit was instituted. Name the star and the year of the speech.

I'm guessing it was Greer Garson, who in 1943 gave a lo-o-o-o-ong acceptance speech for her role in "Mrs. Miniver" (1942).

In 1926 Old Ironsides was filmed partially in widescreen. In 1928 The Trail of 98 was filmed entirely in widescreen. Is this right?

Sorry, no. Not *Old Ironsides* (1926) and not *The Trail of 98* (1928).

 

New hint: The film I've thinking of is considered the longest feature film to date, at the time it was produced.

 

 

Cheers,

TS, you are CORRECT!!!

 

The 1897 heavyweight boxing match between James J. Corbett and Bob FitzSimmons, in Carson City, NV, is considered the first widescreen movie. It was filmed using a technology known as the "Latham loop." The cameraman used three such equipped cameras placed adjacently and filming on 63mm nitrate film.

 

TS, it's your thread.

 

Cheers,

Dan

This actress, very early in her career, had at least one date with the actor who is the answer to the outstanding "Jeopardy" question.

Okay, here's a tough one -- FOR ME. See, it's hard to formulate a question with so many exceptions, but here goes:

 

Not counting most TV shows and their episodic nature, and not counting the several "Andy Hardy" movies, can you name two actors who are unrelated, yet played blood kin to each other in four movies and one TV show?

 

Should be an easy one for you guys. I have two people in mind, but if you come up with any two others who are a perfect fit for this question, I'll award you victory.

 

Who are they?

 

Cheers,

Dan

Beulah Bondi played James Stewart's mother in four movies, "Vivacious Lady" (1938) "Of Human Hearts" (1938), "Mr. Smith Goes To Washington" (1939), and "It's A Wonderful Life" (1946). She also played his mother in an episode of "The Jimmy Stewart Show" in 1971. The two of them appeared in "The Gorgeous Hussy" (1936) and an episode of G.E. Theater in 1957, but not as mother and son.

Miles is... CORRECT!

 

Those are the two that I was thinking about. James Stewart and Beulah Bondi.

 

Your thread, Miles.

Here's something a little different. Jane Fonda was once in a movie where she plays a woman who is falling in love with her cousin, who does not return the feeling. In a bit of strange casting, the cousin is played by her brother, Peter Fonda. In a well known thirties film, a woman loves a man that she works with, but he also does not reciprocate. In this case the woman and man are also played by a real life sister and brother. Can you name the film with the Fondas, and can you name the thirties film and the siblings in that one?

Miles, don't know if this is correct but here it goes:

Jane and Peter played in Spirits of the Dead together and it fits your criteria. The 1930's movie I could find with real life brother and sister love interests was Harry and Daisy Earles in Freaks.

Is this correct?
