Trivia Quiz for Beginners


Recommended Posts

Okay, I'll supply a new line from a famous movie.

 

"I wouldn't be surprised if the world's greatest love affair was between a Chinaman wearing a pigtail and a girl who's missing two front teeth... if you could measure it."

 

Who said that, to whom, and in what film?

You've got some of the best trivia questions to date. I don't know where you get these from but I tip my hat to you for your excellent questions. It is a pleasure to bang my head against the wall trying to think of the answers. ;)

 

Aftermath

Thanks for the compliment, aftermath. But I must tip my hat to the master:

 

YOU!

 

Here's a little "quickie" that you posted, about four (4) days ago:

 

"This involves two people. The first one said "In this world there are watchers and doer's. your a watcher and I'm a doer". The second person reply's "Well it's harder for me to watch what your doing when your doing it!" What two people said it and in what movie?

 

Aftermath"

 

 

I haven't quite reached the head-banging stage yet... but that little bit of trivia has troubled me for days now. I'll concede that YOU are the better player.

 

One of the things you obviously did, before you posted this question, was to check that it didn't appear in the IMDb's "memorable quotes" board. Sure enough, it doesn't. So I'm still scratching my head (no banging yet), trying to figure it out.

 

If you're having a tough time with the questions that I put up, know that you've got company.

Well, four (4) days have passed, and there have been no replies to my question about the quote regarding the Chinaman wearing a pigtail.

 

Okay, maybe ANOTHER quote from the same movie will encourage some guesses:

 

"You know, it doesn't make any difference how many people you talk to during the day. If you haven't got someone that really cares for you, you're all alone. You're one person against the world. Unless you have someone - then it's only half as hard. Least you're two against the world."

 

Who said that, to whom, and in what movie?

Nope, it wasn't James Dean.

 

The two quotes that I've given here are both from the same movie, and they are both said by the same person.

 

The speaker is FEMALE.

 

I'm kind of bummed that, after almost a week, no one here has come up with the correct answer.

 

Here's another hint:

 

Remember, we are on the Turner Classic Movies board.

No, sorry... It isn't Jean Muir.

 

Tomorrow (at least in my time zone) will be the 27th, exactly one week after I posted my quote. I thought for sure, that someone out there in TCM land knew this one.

 

When that didn't happen, I supplied a second quote from the same film.

 

So, what I'm saying is... I'll give you the answer tomorrow. Unless you guys come up with it first.

 

Good night. I'm going to bed.

One week ago, I posted a quote from a famous movie. Here it is:

 

"I wouldn't be surprised if the world's greatest love affair was between a Chinaman wearing a pigtail and a girl who's missing two front teeth... if you could measure it."

 

When (much to my surprise) no one came up with the correct title or the speaker, I added a second quote from the same movie:

 

"You know, it doesn't make any difference how many people you talk to during the day. If you haven't got someone that really cares for you, you're all alone. You're one person against the world. Unless you have someone - then it's only half as hard. Least you're two against the world."

 

Both these introspective quotes were spoken by Jean Arthur, in THE DEVIL AND MISS JONES (1941), a film which has been screened by TCM at least three (3) times this year alone.

 

Both quotes are spoken on the sand at Coney Island. The first is delivered to Charles Coburn, when Jean is trying to explain why she is in love with Bob Cummings. The second quote comes later the same day, on the same sand, as Jean tells Cummings her philosophy about the strength of her love.

 

Thanks to all of you who participated.

Okay, here's another quote from a popular movie of not so long ago.

 

"Last night I had a dream that was so boring, it woke me up. I was afraid to go back to sleep."

 

And here's a hint: The speaker of this quote was, at the time, merely an obscure supporting player. But later the person would become one of the biggest stars on television.

 

Who said that line, and in what movie?
