To me it looks like BEN-HUR: A TALE OF THE CHRIST (1925). Most of them were spectators at a chariot race. Interesting.

Yes, that's it.  This was literally a random factoid I came across today while researching something else.  Not sure whether those particular actors just weren't doing anything else at the time, or if the studio actively encouraged their involvement.

Nice work, Magoo, and it's your thread again.  🙂

Name all 3.

The actor I am looking for is also African American.

Woody Strode who along with Kenny Washington and Jackie Robinson played on the 1939 UCLA Bruins football team?  The three were also known as The Gold Dust Trio.

Yes. I always thought that was an interesting trio. I have another Hollywood/sports trivia Q for my next one.

But, it' your board right now.

Thanks, Magoo. Yes, that was an interesting bit of history.  I wasn't sure who the actor was until your second clue. That cinched it.

Next:  

Name the three New York Yankees players who make cameos in That Touch of Mink (1962)?

Well done, Princess!  I had no idea that you were a Yankees fan. I won't hold that against you. 😉

My first thought would be  It Happens Every Spring , the Ray Milland, Pail Douglas , Jean Peters movie. It's a fun film. Haven't seen this one in a long time.  ?????

Yes, Lav, this is definitely a fun film. Your turn....

When the star of a film met the co-star, he said "Kid, you are going to have to do what I do because I sure can't do what you do." Who were the 2 and the film , extra for what he was referring to when that was said  ?????

I have no idea, so I'm going to guess--

Gene Kelly talking to Frank Sinatra about "Anchors Away". 

If I'm right, it's obvious what they were referring to.

You're on the right track Princess but not Frank and Gene, neither is in this film.The film is a musical with lots of dancing.

Fred Astaire to Leslie Caron in Daddy Long Legs? (because she had been a ballet dancer)

Bingo! Fred said that to Leslie Caron when they first met before they began filming Daddy Long Legs . Yes, you get the extra credit, Fred said it to Leslie Caron because she was a trained ballet dancer. I love this film, it's one of my favorite musicals.

Thanks Princess and Fausterlitz. Fausterlitz, it's your thread :)

Thanks, Lavender Blue! (and also for not making fun of me for guessing a Gene Kelly movie...immediately after you explicitly said it wasn't him)  🙂

Next:

Kate Winslet was Oscar-nominated for two films in which she played the younger version of a main character.  In both cases, the actress playing the older version (within the same film) was also Oscar-nominated.  None of the actresses ultimately won, however.

Can you name the two films and the actresses involved?
