That game is obviously rigged by someone. Do yourself a favor and stop playing it like I did. Who needs the aggrevation.

This thread has been misused, but since someone started it, let's use it correctly:

 

 

 

 

 

What special PERSONAL significance did the movie BUTCH CASSIDY have for Paul Newman?

.It was during the making of Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid in 1968 that Paul began an affair with Nancy Bacon, a divorced Hollywood journalist whom 20th Century Fox had sent to write a piece about him for a magazine.

What does "significant" mean? LoL Do you mean they had a relationship that was more meaningful than a roll in the hay?Are you saying that if he fooled around let's say once with others that wasn't significant? I'm sure Joanne would disagree with that.

For the Crazy Credits column. What movie has this comment in the closing credits?

 

No animals were harmed in the making of this film, but the kids were treated like crap.

Core plot point: Two friends, young adults now, go looking for another friend who hasn't been seen for some time. They are following up on a rumor that the missing one is now homeless.

The two main writers of this piece drew from personal experiences in their own backgrounds for incidents in the story. One such story: In childhood, one of them had spent summers with his sister living with their grandmother, near an amusement park. For years, they had played "Skeeball" at the park, never cashing in their winner tickets, and planning to finally collect a fabulous amount of prizes. Just days before their planned triumph, the Skeeball concession burned down, and they never collected. That story in incorporated into the movie.

 

The Writer / Star is currently starring in a long-running comedy series, that has made news, other than its entertainment function.

The missing friend is found with another homeless person -- a woman -- going through the trash under the boardwalk at an amusement park. It is off-season, and some concessions are open, but there are few customers around.

The friend who dropped out and became homeless -- he blamed himself for the accidental death of his younger sister. This added to some emotional problems that were already there.

Yeah, Sixes; apologies. Been on the sick list. The kind of eye doctor appt where drops in your eyes make everything look like cotten candy. Curbed my online time and sabotaged my TV time.

 

The story of looking up the lost friend allows for some reminiscence. They recall incidents from when they were much younger -- from pre-school up to after HS graduation. These memory flashbacks make use of child actors of different ages. These seem to be the ones referred to in the Crazy Credits passage.

 

As for the "Role Call" clue, does nobody know who is still playing the role of 'Alan Harper' ?

Correct. Mr. Cryer played a lead role, and he was one of the writers. The DVD copy has a "commentary" feature with Cryer and the director adding narration. Good story, and worth a viewer's time.

Taking advantage of a clause in his contract saying he did not have to

work on remakes, and believing the film wasn't 'an important film' was

the official reason given by this actor for not taking the lead role in one

of the most famous remakes of all time.

 

 

According to the author of a book about the films of this (now deceased)

famous screenwriter/director in an ICONS Radio interview (10-07-07) the

real reason this actor bowed out was because a successful screenwriter

was going to direct his first movie. This actor didn't want to trust his

part to this neophyte director.

 

Please name the actor (movie and director optional)
