This inspiring film is based on actual events and people.

One character is the father of the man Einstein stated was "the greatest mind in American history" and responsible for formalizing thermodynamics and physical chemistry.

Name the film and the aforementioned character.

Bonus points for naming his brilliant son.

EXCELLENT answer, Azure.

It was Josiah Willard Gibbs, a professor at Yale, who was portrayed in the film "Amistad".  And his famous son, J Willard, who did so much in the field of physical chemistry and thermodynamics.

I just enjoyed the film for the first time yesterday.

Unfortunately Paul Newman seems to have made only one movie about Atomic bombs.

Name the movie and where each of those two titled bombs were dropped.

For bonus points, who were the two pilots and the names of the planes for those two bombs?

Arsan,

That's the movie and the correct targets

 

FYI, Paul Tibbets was the pilot of the "Enola Gay" that dropped the "Little Boy" Uranium bomb on Hiroshima and then 3 days later Charles Sweeney was the pilot of "Bockscar" that dropped the "Fat Man" Plutonium bomb on Nagasaki.

DGF is correct. Sleuth only had two cast members, Michael Caine & Laurence Olivier, and both were nominated.

 

The other film was 1975's Give 'Em Hell, Harry!, where the sole cast member was James Whitmore.

 

Your turn, DGF.

Name at least 3 classic films that had a question mark at the end of the title.
