I gotta rent Mother Night. If nothing else, need to find out if Alan Arkin is the Stasi or the CIA guy.

And for clarity, yes, Fisher King.

"Say, any of you boys smithies? Or, if not smithies per se, were you otherwise trained in the metallurgic arts before straitened circumstances forced you into a life of aimless wanderin'?"

The speaker of the above lines -- what percentage of a gopher is he offered?

"I got to get into this dude's pelt and crawl around for a few days. Who's the gopher's ally. His friends. The harmless squirrel and the friendly rabbit."

Gee, I just saw Heath Ledger in A Knight's Tale, as:
Sir Ulrich von Lichtenstein of Gelderland, not too long ago.

And your hint sounds like something he would say or, someone said to him, as they are wandering around and bump into a naked Paul Bettany as Geofrey Chaucer.

But then, it is of the essence that they encounter Laura Fraser playing Kate the Farrier (that's a black smith of sorts where I come from; actually they are into shoeing horses, another tid-bit you can inquire about from harrie who knows horses.   Although Black smiths get into heaver stuff which is what Heath is asking for, something heavier in the way of a ...an armor?  I had a friend, an artist who made the stuff and taught the skill to his son.)

On the other hand, the line as rendered by Barton, indeed in those days referred to wandering "Tinkers" in the British Isles; many of whom have the surname "Smith".

Think of two brothers who like to write characters whose pompous speech is often incongruous with their social station.

One-third of a gopher merely arouses one's appetite without adequately beddin' her down.

Yes.  I was wonderin' if you ever looked in this thread, Oilcan.  If you have a question, or even one-third of a question, the floor is yours.

Not as often as I'd like to, sadly.

What was the name of the ship in "Cabin Boy"?

Minnow?  Nautilus?  HMS Pinafore?  Mary Celeste?  Edmund Fitzgerald?  Titanic?  Lusitania?  Andre Doria?

Clearly two very different methods of guessing are at work here.

None right so far.  It's two words (not counting "The"), the first is an adjective.
