Trivia game

Recommended Posts

There were three movies all directed by the same man.  They all had similar settings, but different stories.  Some actors were in all three movies, some were in two of them.  One actor played the same role in the second and third films, but a different character in the first film.  One actor played the same character in the first and third films, but a different character in the second movie.  Another actor was in only the second and third movies, but he played the same character in both films.  Can you name the three movies?  Can you name any of the actors that I referred to?

One actor played the same character in the first and third films, but a different character in the third movie.     

Miles, this statement contradicts itself.  Can you please clarify what you meant?

I made a correction concerning the actor who played the same character in the first and third movies.  I hope that clears things up a bit.  Here's a hint:  The movies were released in three consecutive years.

The 3 movies are Fort Apache (1948), She Wore a Yellow Ribbon (1949) and Rio Grande (1950).  In the second and third films, Victor McLaglen played Top Sergeant Quincannon, but in the first one he played Sergeant Festus Mulcahy.  John Wayne played Captain Kirby York in the first and third movie, but in the second one he played Captain Nathan Cutting Brittles.  In the second and third films, Ben Johnson played Travis Tyree, billed as Sergeant Tyree in the first one and Trooper Travis Tyree in the second.

Great work, Starlit.  Dick Foran played Sgt. Quincannon in "Fort Apache".  Apparently, director John Ford liked that name.  Guy Kibbee was in Fort Apache with Shirley Temple.  They had earlier worked together in "Captain January" and "Miss Annie Rooney"  Other actors who appeared in more than one of the three films include Jack Pennick (3), John Agar, Harry Carey Jr., George O'Brien, and Ford's brother, Francis (2 each).  Thank you for the research work, Starlit.  You're up next.

Thanks, Terrence.

 

Next:  Early in his career, this film/stage performer decided to get a new stage name.  At first, he couldn't decide which last name to use.  One day, he passed by his sister's room and saw a poster of a popular film actor on her bedroom wall.  He decided to use part of that actor's name for his new stage name.  

Please name the film/stage performer and the famous actor that was on the poster.

Hint --  The first name of the actor on the poster became the new last name for the film/stage performer.

Hint -- The film/stage performer played the title role in a 1950s musical film which was later turned into a TV show.  (The TV show had a different actor playing the title character.)

This actor was born in Jamaica. His family moved to the US when he was young and lived in Boston. He began his acting career in the 1930's. Because of his racially-mixed appearance he played mostly ethnic roles in dramas and westerns, including supporting roles in various TV series. He starred in a couple of early Stanley Kubrick films. Name the actor and one of the Kubrick films.

In this movie, a husband affectionately calls his wife "Chickie-Pan".  Name the movie.

I will need another clue for this one. Google does not recognize that horrible term of "endearment".

I am going to guess Bandwagon as the movie with Oscar Levant calling Nanette Fabray "Chickie-Pie".
