Thanks.

In which of the Margaret Rutherford / Miss Marple films does Inspector Craddock announce to Miss Marple he has been promoted to Chief Inspector (thanks to her success)?

And where does he make the announcement?

Thanks, Star.

 

Jack Lemmon starred in the movie versions of two Neil Simon stage plays. Please name the two Simon plays.  Extra credit for naming the actors who starred in the roles in the original Broadway stage productions of these two plays.

Thanks, Kid.  Double Indemnity is one of my favorites. 

 

By the way, if anyone is interested in watching Double Indemnity, it will be shown on TCM tomorrow (Saturday) night at 8 pm ET.

 

 

 

Next:  In which film do the two main characters call each other "Slim" and "Steve"?  (Please name the 2 actors as well.)

The film is "To Have and Have Not" and "Steve" is Humphrey Bogart and "Slim" is Lauren Bacall. I can watch this movie over and over - love it.

 

Correct!  Yes, this is a great movie.  Your turn, Marsha.

Thanks, Azure.

 

Ok. I think this question should not be too difficult to answer.

 

An unemployed eccentric genius is interviewed for a position and is rudely turned down by the owner of the company who is the sponsor of a TV quiz show. To get even, the eccentric genius becomes a contestant on the quiz show in order to bankrupt the owner.

 

Name the movie and the two actors who play the eccentric genius and company owner/sponsor. The title of the movie is a specific "character". Extra credit for naming the voice of this "character".

Starlit, You're correct on  both Ronald Colman, the eccentric genius, and  the name of the movie  "Champagne for Caesar".

 

We still need the name of the actor who plays the company owner/sponsor of the TV quiz show and who is Caesar, the title character.  Also extra credit for the name of the person who is the voice of Caesar.

If it was a voice, then odds are it was supplied by Mel Blanc.

DJB - You're correct -Mel Blanc was the voice of "Caesar".

 

Now we still have two unanswered questions remaining - Who is the actor who portrayed the company owner/sponsor of the TV quiz show and who is "Caesar" from the title "Champagne for Caesar".
