What Do These Four Films Have In Common


Recommended Posts

Okay, so I don't know the answer to Phroso question, but I'll throw my two cents in.


What do these four films have in Common?


A King In New York (1957)

Gypsy Girl (1966)

The Dead (1987)

The Godfather 3 (1990)

Well, you're jumping the gun somewhat, but all four movies were directed by the father of a cast member.


*A KING IN NEW YORK* (Charlie/Michael Chaplin)

*GYPSY GIRL* (John/Hayley Mills)

*THE DEAD* (John/Angelica Huston)

*THE GODFATHER PART III* (Francis Ford/Sofia Coppola)


Meanwhile, I don't have an answer to my question.



*STATE FAIR* (1945 and 1962)


*THE PRODUCERS* (both versions)


The hint is that all four of the movies feature familiar songs about the same topic.

"You know, at first, I didn't like you."--Ellie


"Oh, I'm like olives: you've got to get use to me." Una


Patter from the Queen of Tap's *Born To Dance".


All of your films co-star the marvelous Una Merkel.

This next question involves what a writer can do to bring out the unusual or the potential of an actor.

The following artists were stretched by the touch of this writer to createng roles uncharateristic of their screen type or as some might say--beyond their usual perfromance.


Bing Crosby

Tony Curtis

Jack Palance

Cary Grant


This question isn't easy--but not so hard either.

Name the writer and the 4 movies.

Close enough. All four of the movies feature a character, major or otherwise, in an eyepatch. Alexander d'Arcy's role in *HOW TO MARRY A MILLIONAIRE* and Ward Bond's character in *THE WINGS OF EAGLES* are supporting roles. Nice work, spfcc. The thread is yours . . .
