Of the definite, four are wrong. (In one case, looking at the dates in the clue will give away that it's wrong ... but the wrong answer is not irrelevant.)

Of the ones with a question mark, only two are wrong.

Of the ones with alternative answers, two contain the right answer. (In one case, either alternative actually works in the solution.) One does not contain the right answer - but one of the wrong answers would still work in the solution.

As for which Cheech and Chong movie - it doesn't really matter.

One day, eluding her keepers, the Princess escaped. Once outside, the brightness blinded her and erased every trace of the past from her memory. She forgot who she was and where she came from. Her body suffered cold, sickness, and pain. Eventually, she died. However, her father, the King, always knew that the Princess' soul would return, perhaps in another body, in another place, at another time. And he would wait for her, until he drew his last breath, until the world stopped turning.”

“You used to believe in God.”
“Oh, I still do believe in God, old man. I believe in God and Mercy and all that. But the dead are happier dead. They don't miss much here, poor devils.”
THE THIRD MAN

45. A year after a music superstar made a highly successful film debut, he went downhill fast with this turkey that won a Worst Picture Razzie – tied with Howard the Duck, no less.
UNDER THE CHERRY MOON

46. “I came to a realization that I was - and am - a blonde, female folk singer trapped in the body of a bald, male folk singer and I had to let me out or I would die.”
A MIGHTY WIND

And these twelve people are asked to judge another human being as different from them as they are from each other. And in their judgment, they must become of one mind - unanimous. It's one of the miracles of Man's disorganized soul that they can do it, and in most instances, do it right well. God bless juries.”

“No father could.”
“No brother could, either.”

75. Let us return yet again to the Documentary and Experimental Film class I took back in 1975 … and to this 1963 classic which featured bikers, Jesus, Nazi fetishism, and a use of a Bobby Vinton song in a context he never intended.
BLUE VELVET

76. “Money won is twice as sweet as money earned.”
THE COLOR OF MONEY

78. “Remember Operation Desert Storm? Those surgical hits made by our smart bombs that were covered so well on CNN? It was my men on the ground that made those hits possible by lazing the targets. Twenty of those men were left to rot outside Baghdad after the conflict ended. No benefits were paid to their families. No medals conferred. These men died for their country and they weren't even given a goddamn military burial. This situation is unacceptable.

“You cursed me!”
I, TONYA

83. Not only were this fantasy and its remake both nominated for the Oscar for Best Picture, but the roles that earned Oscar nominations for the actors in the first film also did the same for the actors playing the equivalent roles in the remake. Got that?
HERE COMES MR. JORDAN

84. “You see, I wanted to be a detective too. It only took brains, courage, and a gun ... and I had the gun.”

85. An actor who passed away last month at the age of 90 received his first Oscar nomination for this 1988 Danish film.

EASY RIDER

95. Thanks to a coin toss, Cecil B. DeMille made this film instead of one about the building of the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe.
UNION PACIFIC?

96. “Waiter, will you serve the nuts? I mean, will you serve the guests the nuts?”
THE THIN MAN

97. You can watch this 1981 movie on TV, but you won’t get the full effect unless you have Odorama in your living room.
POLYESTER

98. “The Americans are fools. I offered my services; they refused. So did the East. Now they can both pay for their mistake.”
“World domination. The same old dream. Our asylums are full of people who think they're Napoleon. Or God.”
DR. NO

99. CLINT OUT WEST, PART THREE: This Clint Eastwood western spurred a successful lawsuit by Akira Kurosawa’s production company.
A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS

I was uneasy about this one before Frank's comment, and that clinched it. Bobby Vinton recorded Blue Velvet in 1963, but the movie came out 20 years later. Even with my knowledge of B-movies, I hadn't heard of this one and, I found out with good reason. (Yes, I cheated, but I have a feeling no one would have picked up on it.) It's a 28-minute short called SCORPIO RISING, and Blue Velvet appears on the soundtrack. From the IMDB description: "An army of gay/nazi bikers make their engines roar and ride the way to pain/pleasure as sexual and sadistic symbols are intercut into the dazing chaos and rhythmic experiences of this underground film by cult director [Kenneth] Anger."

From Frank's comment about Cheech & Chong it would appear that one half of the link is actors in a particular movie and that their film links to another one in which one or both of them appear (more likely Cheech since he's had a wider solo career). I would guess that the other half had to do with the title of the film. There are a few "Rising" movies, including Rising Sun (with Sean Connery from The Rock and Dr. No), Deep Rising, Mercury Rising, and Hannibal Rising. There's only been one other "Scorpio" movie I know of, the 1970s Burt Lancaster movie. Of course, that may not mean anything.

The idea of "Rising" may tie into the title - Action Movies. Maybe we are looking for movies with verbs like Scorpio Rising, Raising Arizona, The Shipping News, etc.

I thought that "action" words might be a key to the link, especially when I figured out Scorpio Rising. But while there are a few other titles that have action words in them like Running Scared, it certainly doesn't seem to be enough to come up with 50 matches, especially if, as I suspect, the other half of the link in an actor in an as-yet unknown film derived from the title.

Frank's clue led me to think of the director yelling "Action!" before the start of a scene. I know there was a past game where the Tangredi was the first lines of popular songs, but that doesn't seem possible here. Still, just throwing it out there...

THE HOWLING

42. “I give you eleven f**king years of my life and you're telling me you're leaving me for a white woman?”
“Would it help if she was black?”
“No. It would help if you were black.”

Somebody has already had the most important insight. You just have to apply it and I guarantee you'll spot the Tangredi before you get more than a dozen movies deep.

Then you'll still have fun making the matches.

61. In order to get this film made, Christopher Reeve had to agree to do a fourth Superman film.
DEATHTRAP?
This is STREET SMART, most noteworthy for bringing Morgan Freeman his first Oscar nomination.

Somebody has already had the most important insight. You just have to apply it and I guarantee you'll spot the Tangredi before you get more than a dozen movies deep.

Then you'll still have fun making the matches.
This makes me think that Lb's comment about "Action!" referring to directors has something to do with this. However, Frank's comment about Cheech and Chong would indicate that the other half of the match has something to do with the cast, and that either Cheech or Chong had appeared in another film that somehow is the basis for the link. The link can't be simply another movie directed by the same person, since, on the one hand, prolific directors like Clint Eastwood would probably match with dozens of these other movies. And I can't see how Scorpio Rising or RBG would fit, since they were both directed by people who had no other feature films to their credit and they have no casts either.

And, while Scorpio Rising might be on the list for its title, since there are other "Scorpio" and "Rising" movies, I don't see how you can work "RBG" into the name of another title.

Let me clear that up since I think I misled you unintentionally. It indeed doesn't matter which Cheech and Chong movie you use. But it's for a reason that has nothing to do with the casts of the movies. It's a special case.

I didn't know this but Tommy Chong directed five Cheech and Chong movies, which would indicate that the link has to do with him as director. It's possible that the link might be to another film in which he appeared as an actor.

John Huston directed Moby Dick and appeared in Chinatown.
Dennis Hopper directed Easy Rider and appeared in Speed.
Quentin Tarantino directed Hateful Eight and appeared in From Dusk Till Dawn
John Waters (Polyester) has appeared in a number of movies, as has Martin Scorsese (The Color of Money).

I don't see how that would work with Scorpio Rising or RBG though.
