I'm not good at trivia anymore, but it may be interesting, especially if it focuses on older movies that I've seen lots of times.

Puget's in, too.  See my examples posting in "Meander" thread.  I've emailed Mr. Liquid.

I'm up for this, too.  Here's a starter, this is the subtitle of what movie and what was its inspiration?

Night of the Day of the Dawn of the Son of the Bride of the Return of the Revenge of the Terror of the Attack of the Evil, Mutant, Alien, Flesh Eating, Hellbound, Zombified Living Dead Part 2: In Shocking 2-D (USA) (complete title)

As I recall, this film consisted of redubbing "Night of the Living Dead" with a more comical soundtrack, a sort of proto-MST.

Bingo barton.  The shorter title was Night of the Day of the Dawn of the Son of the Bride of the Return of the Terror

Your (or at least someone else's) turn.

"He has a clear-eyed, epicene handsomeness—
cruel, sensuous mouth; cheekbones to cut your
heart on—the sort of excessive beauty that is best
appreciated in repose on a 50-foot screen."


Who's the male actor?

Montgomery Clift?  Though his mouth isn't all that cruel-looking.

Harrie, you could start on one end of the list and I on the other and read the promo because you see James Dean comes next after Montgomery Clift and obviously Marlon Brando comes prior to anybody you could probably guess Pugetopolis would pick out of a hat. For what, I shan't say.

Clift was inadvertently like the closet subject of one of his morning's renditions of Suddenly Last Summer, although  starring Katherine Hepburn, the leads were Elizabeth Taylor in a white bathing suit sent into the foam like Venus and she was at the time best friends with Clift (whose mouth is about as cruel as Salma Hayek's husband,Ed Norton) in this play  by Tennessee Williams adapted to the screen by Mankiewicz.

This isn't trivial but the question ought be which of these leading men ,all of whom were friends of Liz, died first, second,third?

I was going to say,
"c...... f..."

But, who would look excessively beautiful reposing on a 50 foot screen. I am trying to remember if I've ever seen this as it sounds too theoretical.

Close, harrie... but not close enough.

Gettie up girl...c'mon you can do better than that.

Hint: He played a no-good Southern hustler
who was done in by an even more epicene
piece of white-trash posing as an antique
dealer...

The correct answer is "party," but now... okay... I'm getting word from the judges... and they're going to accept "c...... f..."

Good work!!   

Your turn.
