My Favorite Trivia

Recommended Posts

Could it have been "Boris" in "The Big Picture" (aka "The Creator")?

 

 

You know, I've never seen "Creator" (1985), but your post prompted me to check it out on the IMDb... and from reading the mostly rosy commentaries on it, I'm now inclined to hunt down this movie and see it for myself. Must be a great Peter O'Toole performance, for I see that the only negative comment on "Creator" still found reason to praise O'Toole's portrayal of Dr. Harry Wolper.

 

It must be a truly wonderful movie, but... alas! It's not the one that contains the quote I've been posting here.

In "Club Paradise" I thought it was Robin Williams who said it not O'Toole, I am not that slow on the uptake!

 

I'll say Stephen Campbell Moore - "Bright Young Things" (2004)

Absolutely correct! And if you have seen "Venus" (2006), you too must have marvelled at the brilliance of Peter O'Toole's performance.

 

He should win the Oscar in this, his eighth try... but alas, I'm afraid the statuette has already been engraved with the name Forrest Whitaker on it.

 

Great performance, anyway. And Vanessa Redgrave was equally good.

 

Your time at bat now, Bartlett!

Now Dan, how can I say this nicely? Why are we spending our time researching classic movies if you are posting questions about movies still in first run? If one hasn't actually seen the current film in question, how is one to determine an answer? Where does one not in the Writers' Guild easily find entire movie scripts posted online?

 

OK, OK, I'll stop griping. Maybe I can come up with a new thread to amuse myself.

OK jdb1 this question does not concern a first run movie.

What actress was made an honorary "Green Beret" and laid to rest at Fort Bragg, the "Green Beret" base?

Give me the name of the Broadway musical star who was a great success on stage, then went to Hollywood and made three flop musicals in a row. This person only made five (5) movies overall, but then returned to Broadway and became, once again, the toast of the town.

Carol Channing?

 

 

Nope, not Carol. I think she was in eleven (11) films altogether, far more than the person we are seeking.

 

Remember: This person was the toast of Broadway in two different eras, sandwiched around a disastrous movie "career."

 

Who could it be?

Ethel Barrymore?

 

 

Nope, Miss Ethel Barrymore was in 37 movies, far more than the five films that our mystery guest made.

Hi norby... I thank you for writing, and I know from painful, first-hand experience the agony that goes with thinking you've come up with the right answer, only to learn that it's wrong. It's happened to me, many times.

 

Remember: The star in question was a MAJOR success on Broadway. Then this person went to Hollywood and appeared in three "flops" in a row. After only five (5) films, the person returned to Broadway and became a MAJOR success... AGAIN!

 

I'm really curious to know why none of you have asked, is this person male or female?

 

Cheers,

Dan N.
