Trivia -- Week of February 20, 2006

Recommended Posts

Greetings, everybody! Now that the sun is up by the time I get off work at 7 am, I keep reminding myself that spring is not far behind. In fact, the hope of spring is sometimes the only thing that keeps me going these days, which is why I like this poem by the late E. Y Harburg (of "Over The Rainbow" fame):


My heart is like the willow

That bends, but never breaks.

It sighs when summer jilts her,

It sings when April wakes.


So, you who come a-smiling

With summer in your eyes,

Do not think that your beguiling

Will take me by surprise.


My heart is set for aching

The moment you take wing,

But not, my dear, for breaking

While there's still another spring.


So share my summer pillow,

Don't share my autumn aches,

My heart is like the willow

That bends -- but never breaks.


And now, on to this week's movie trivia . . .

Audrey Hepburn and Shirley McLaine were in this movie, together. They ran a boarding school, for girls. One girl spread lots of lies and rumors, about her teachers. Name the movie and the actor, who played the part of Audrey's boyfriend.

Yes, you're right on both counts, vallo.


It just occurred to me coming over here today that the mouse wasn't owned by Paul Edgecomb, but I couldn't think of the prisoner's name either! Thanks for coming up with both, and the mouse's name was Mr. Jingles.


Just shows what can happen when you're recovering from food poisoning . . .

Hmm . . . no other takers?


Yesterday's answer: All three actors played Hugo Barnstead in the various cinematic incarnations of ONE SUNDAY AFTERNOON: Neil Hamilton in the original 1933 version with Gary Cooper, Jack Carson in the 1941 version with James Cagney (retitled STRAWBERRY BLONDE), and Don DeFore in the 1948 version with Dennis Morgan (under the original title).
