You got it!


Ebsen was originally cast as the Scarecrow. In one of those occasional occurences that used to happen back then, the two actors decided to swap roles... a decision Buddy Ebsen must have kicked himself for, considering what was to happen afterwards. (The allergy to the make-up, etc.)


Well done!

CAVALCADE from 1933. I saw this on Fox Movie Channel last year. I wish a nice cleaned-up print would make it to dvd. It follows the lives of an English family from the 1890's to 1933. Based on a play by Noel Coward. Truly a forgotten best picture winner.

OK, here's a "what movie is this line from?" question. Name the film, the actor who says it, and the two screenwriters who wrote it (who are better known for other achievements):


"'Patronizing'? Is that the word you meant to use?"

A further clue:


Of the film's two writers--neither of whom ever wrote another screenplay, either together or apart--one (now deceased) was an actor principally associated with one iconic character, and the other (still alive) is a composer/lyricist.
