Ultimate Movie Trivia


Recommended Posts

No, tell you what though. Since FOC doesn't want the thread, let's continue with the question. Name the actor who starred in 3 films, playing the same character. Decades later, it was turned into a TV show with that character, starring another actor. Name the films and the actor who portrayed that character in the films????

 

Comedies and the actor appeared on Broadway early in his career

Was the movie actor Clifton Webb?

 

He played Mr. Belvedere in the movies *Sitting Pretty*, *Mr. Belvedere Goes To College* and *Mr. Belvedere Rings The Bell* in the late 40s and early 50s.

 

And, in the late 80s, there was the television show *Mr. Belvedere* with Christopher Hewett and Bob Uecker. As a baseball fan, the latter is why I remember this show.

Liam, I'm not in the habit of partially answering a question posed or asking questions. My computer has a lot of problems for wks now. Power surges in my area makes it almost impossible for me to do much research. What I know offhand is that Tom Conway (George Sanders brother) took over the role of The Falcon. Tom was in 10 of those films (that much I checked) as far as another actor to appear with him in 8 of the films, I know that Edward Gargan was in quite a few of those films. That's about all I can think of right now without a lot of checking. Maybe someone else can take my info if it's correct and answer the rest.

Computer problems? Been there, done that! :(

 

It is not The Falcon.

 

The two actors play father and son in the eight movies where the same character name appears in the title for each.

I misunderstood your question because I thought 2 films with the same place in the title would have related to the character the actor played. If not then how about *Charlie Chan in Shanghai* and *Shanghai* the Loretta Young, Boyer movie both 1935 films ???????/ As I told you, offhand I can't name those 2 films and I can't do research on my computer. However I do know of these 2 films. Please someone else just finish this one up, if my answers don't work out.

Name the actor -

 

This actor must have liked his Hollywood (stage) first name alot because he used it as his character's name in 35 of his almost 200 films (which do not include reels where he played himself). He used his last name only once. He used his nickname 5 times. An odd fact: he used his stage first name in every one of his 1935 films.

 

Long versions of the name don't count, e.g. Kenny for Ken, must be Ken.

An academy award winning actor, he also produced and directed. To receive one of his awards he was escorted by an armored personnel carrier, on which he rode.

Please note error correction of second clue - my apologies

(Edited to correct an error - not an academy award winning producer)

An academy award winning actor, he also produced and directed. To receive one of his awards he was escorted by an armored personnel carrier, on which he rode.

 

He was also referred to as "the biggest fraud in history".
