Very funny way of putting it. And the breakdown is as follows:

 

Cary Grant was Cole Porter in "Night and Day"

James Mason played a director who had a leaning towards children in that wonderful murder mystery written by Stephen Sondheim and Anthony Perkins, "The Last of Sheila"

and the four actors portrayed the Presidents on Mt. Rushmore:

Brian Keith played Teddy Roosevelt in :The Wind and the Lion" (another wonderful movie)

Raymond Massey played Abe Lincoln in "Abraham Lincoln"

Ken Howard played Thomas Jefferson in the stage and film productions of "1776" (see this movie, people, it's terrific)

Barry Bostwick played George Washington in "George Washington"

Very good, filmlover. You nailed it.

 

Actually, yes, there were two correct possibilities for James Mason. Either would have done.

 

Tag, you're it.

Almost, but couple need correcting:

 

Yes, Carroll Baker, but wrong film. My clue was a "famous sex symbol".

 

Yes, Gregory Peck, but wrong film. Think Salvador Dali.

 

Not Andy Devine for bad luck piano player. I think this one was too obscure. Different actor. A new clue might be, "Shared bad luck with riverboat singer".

 

Not James Stewart as pilot. New clue. Mustangs pilot.

Okay, so "Harlow" for Baker, "Spellbound" for Peck, Harry Morgan in "Frankie & Johnny", and Spencer Tracy in "A Guy Named Joe"
