Correct. Yours.

Along the same lines as your last question:

What two pairs of films were Best Picture nominees that shared the same title without being an original and its remake?  Looking for two titles that represent four movies.

If this question were truly for the other 98% of us, it should have been answered by now.

Guess you're right.  I'll give the answer and open the thread up for other questions:

 

What two pairs of films were Best Picture nominees that shared the same title without being an original and its remake?  Looking for two titles that represent four movies.

 

Heaven Can Wait (1943 and 1978)

Moulin Rouge (1952 and 2001)

 

1978's Heaven Can Wait is actually a remake of another Best Picture Nominee, 1941's Here Comes Mr. Jordan.

Why don't you give it another go, redhook - something easier,

but harder than "Who's buried in Grant's tomb?"

:P

OK. How about this one.  In The Glenn Miller Story, what happened that finally resulted in the "sound" that Glenn Miller was searching for?

Yes Robert Mitchum, Edythe :)  RO said his was the hardest interview he'd done. Mitchum was friendly and chatty during breaks, but clammed up during the interview and RO said he thought Mitchum was just being mean! Mitchum said he never watched any of his films, didn't have a favorite of his films. Did what he had to do, got his check and that's all. Guess you must have heard RO talk about this too :) Good work, your thread

Diector of a film was convinced by the lead actor to also play a role in the film. Director, film, extr credit for the actor who convinced him to do the role ??? Easy question for those who are frequent TCM watchers

Wild guess-----TREASURE OF SIERRA MADRE? John Huston? Bogart?

Thank You starlit. Yes Sydney Pollack, Tootsie and Dustin Hoffman

Funny story he told. Dabney Coleman was suppose to play the part of Dustin's manager. Dustin wanted Sydney to play the part, Sydney didn't want to, so Dustin sent Sydney flowers everyday for a week, on the card he signed it Love, Dorothy. It's a wonderful interview, it's been shown lots of times on TCM and all film lovers should watch it.

It was a Great loss when Sydney Pollack passed away. He was truly a talented and wonderful director and a very good actor. Good work starlit, your thread.

I saw Sydney Pollack shopping in the Pavilion supermarket in Pacific Palisades.
