Ultimate Movie Trivia

Recommended Posts

Miles, Mud, so sorry. I just got home and sometimes I forget where I've posted last. I don't think I can come up with anything worthy of Ultimate Trivia so I'll leave the thread open to whomever wants to take it. I just love to do the research.

This performer, who started in films, was the first performer to star in two back-to-back hit TV dramatic series. Performer? The two series?

I don't know what to tell you. I specifically saw the statement that said it was somebody else. Maybe "The FBI" didn't meet the criteria for being a hit show. There is someone else with two better-known back-to-back shows. Try it.

The FBI was on for 9 years! if that 's not a hit show what is? Ralph Bellamy and Wendell Corey were both on very early tv shows, but they were broken up with hosting anthology type dramas. I'll keep looking.

This actress was in a few movies early in her career, one being a very well known film. She later was on a hit TV sitcom. She eventually married an actor who guest starred occasionally on this sitcom and he also starred in another sitcom with the star of the sitcom she was in, (I know that's kind of confusing wording, but I think you guys will know what I mean).

Name her, the sitcom, and the most famous/successful movie she was in.

Suzanne Pleshette from the "Bob Newhart Show" and "The Birds". Her third husband was Tom Poston, who guest starred in the "Bob Newhart Show" and was a regular in "Newhart"...

Name at least 3 films from the 1940s in which the cast included a number of actors and actresses playing themselves (not performing a musical number)

Hint: It's a real Hollywood studio film made during the War.

Hint 2: 3 of the main leads are from foreign countries: France and England. The 4th, really the 3rd lead is an American character actor who won the Oscar. He usually played sweet, but forgetful uncles or endearing bumbling drunken professionals. In this movie, he plays against type as a very malovently perverted villain.

Hint 3: the female lead was a great actress in Hollywood but she had another achievement that really put her in the movie history books as a cinema pioneer on the distaff side.
