Ultimate Movie Trivia

Recommended Posts

One of my favorite character actors. They don't get much cuter than SZ Sakall.



Originally a scene in this famous film was shot differently than what we see on the screen. In this scene, the lead actor pushes the lead actress against a wall, rips off her clothes and rapes her. The scene was changed. She is pushed down and the rest is left to our imagination. What film, and the actor and actress???

Howdy, ya'll


After being seen in her movie debut by a Superstar, this actress was hired for a supporting role in a (long awaited) movie version of a popular Broadway musical starring said Superstar.


She was fired after a few days because of "differences" with the Superstar. Story is Superstar hated her and had her axed.


She went immediately into another movie that was a major hit.


Fired actress got an Oscar nom for the movie she made instead of musical.


Musical was a big smelly bomb.

No. Babs S is not the Superstar...but she was the star of Fired's first feature movie.


The movie Fired Actress made instead was a comedy directed by a (at the time) popular director who has since fallen out of favor. Director made some really good movies that often featured his (at the time) girlfirend. Fired was Oscar nominated while another cast mate won an Oscar for their work in the movie.


Fired then soon made the first of four (maybe five?) movies with another popular director/writer/producer. Fired also received an Oscar nom for this movie...a comedy classic.
