Is there any way to take these digressions into Meander Where You May?

Nytemps -- it's a trick question.  The answer to both is "everything."  Though Bale's leaned more towards a training table diet, as he was putting on muscle and not just pudge.

I guess, you are just a little unstrung by your inadequacies.

Really? I thought Bale was a vegetarian -- will have to check my sources, I guess.

You're thinking of actor Christian Kale.

An easy mistake.

Children, children!

You'd make a good moderator, barton.

I like your calm stoic style... your humor & patience...

It's probably inevitable this would happen though...

"Movie Trivia" politicized like everything else...

Ps. you still don't know what was wrong with your Post-Weimar Raunch when you decided to politicize the Movie Club as first off an exclusive club.  So why don't you make yourself dictator or decider of moderators. Oh, that's right, then you'd  have access to everybody's data, without breaking and entering.  But there are some who would vote for you anyway, right?  It's kind of like voting for Bush even when his term has run out although he's not in favor of partial birth abortion.

If someone were rash enough to think me a moderator, the first thing I would tell them is:  take this snarkiness over to Politics.

I agree with you, Barton…

I wouldn’t wish being a Moderator on anybody…

Snarky shit flows like diarrhea here in Trivia…

Just like Television… and Politics…

Let’s face it…

There’s even a "Politics of Trivia"…

Sad but true…

I hate to interrupt all this cinematic chit-chat, my dears—but let’s get back to business. I believe I have the Floor—since I answered properly the last Trivia Question about the Fat Lady and the Kinsey movie…

http://forums.escapefromelba.com/index.php/topic,247.msg68465.html#msg68465

The question, my fellow Trivia Queens, is this:

Name the actor and movie in which Big Daddy uses the phrase: “Mendacity, sheer mendacity…”

Hint: Tennessee Williams wrote the play….

The line doesn't quite go that way but Burl Ives played Big Daddy in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof; funny you should mention it because I posted that prior to February in Theatre forum because of the opening in New York with Terence Howard starring as Brick (originally played by Paul Newman}

Terence Howard is about to be Brick (which once was Paul Newman's hard-drinking short-tempered not easily tempted performance; and, I wish that I paid closer attention to that, as in, "let that be a warning".)in
Tennessee Williams',Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

Opening: Feb. 12 at the Broadhurst Theatre    Tickets go on sale Dec.29.

Since I saw this film in maybe 1958 or much later on  tv, because I can't imagine how I packed so much into  one year, I had to wrack my brains for more than a minute who played Big Daddy? ( who had the last word on mendacity, for you out there,"let that be a warning") Burl  Ives, who lived as far South as Illinois, but I don't care. Having seen James Earl Jones play Paul Robeson, it would be something to see him deliver these lines that Ives made famous.   And that's all I'm going to tell you. You can take a vote for yourselfs who gets to be Maggie?  Any ideas?
