Game #207 – Unbilled

Identify the 60 actors in List A and the 50 movies in List B. (Every other clue is a quotation.) Then, form 40 groups, each consisting of two actors and two moves, according to a Tangredi, or principle you must discover for yourself.

Twenty actors will be used twice, each time in a different way. Thirty movies will be used twice.

LIST A: ACTORS

A-1. He has received more Oscar nominations for acting than any other winner of the Irving Thalberg Award.

A-2. “I've been to a million auditions, and the same thing happens every time, where I get interrupted because someone wants to get a sandwich. Or I'm crying, and they start laughing. Or there's people sitting in the waiting room, and they're ... and they're like me but prettier and better at the ... because maybe I'm not good enough.”

A-3. This veteran actor made his last feature film in 1954 – the same year he began starring in the first of the two television series for which he won Emmy awards.

A-4. “I brought a young lady swimming out here once - more than 20 years ago. It was after my wife had lost her mind. And my boys was dead. Me and this young lady was pretty wild, I guess. In pretty deep. We used to come out here on horseback and go swimmin' without no bathin' suits. One day she wanted to swim the horses across this tank. Kind of a crazy thing to do, but we done it anyway. She bet me a silver dollar she could beat me across. She did. This old horse I was riding didn't want to take the water. But she was always looking for somethin' to do like that. Somethin' wild. I bet she's still got that silver dollar.”

A-5. Her screen career has included adaptations of works by Shakespeare, Dostoevski, Ibsen, Hemingway, John Osborne, and Ray Bradbury.

A-7. This English actor starred in the first live-action film ever made from a video game.

A-8. “I wanted to see exotic Vietnam... the crown jewel of Southeast Asia. I wanted to meet interesting and stimulating people of an ancient culture ... and kill them. I wanted to be the first kid on my block to get a confirmed kill!”

A-9. More than forty years after her untimely death, this actress was cited in Number One songs by Kim Carnes and Madonna.

A-10. “Never underestimate the power of the Schwartz!”

A-11. Thanks to a new drug treatment, he was able to overcome crippling arthritis and revitalize his career – eventually winning an Oscar.

A-12. “I am the King. I tell, I am not TOLD. I am the VERB, sir, not the OBJECT.”

A-15. She cemented her status as a Broadway legend when she asked the musical question, “Does anyone still wear a hat?”

A-16. “Now, you said that - you know, he was worshiped like a god. Now, is he a god? I don’t know if he's a god. I mean he ate a cat, so I mean, I don't, I don't know!”

A-17. She was leaving a restaurant with Goldie Hawn when she was hit by a passing motorist, which put her career on hold for three years.

A-18. “You watch your phraseology, young lady!”

A-19. In a single year, she had an affair with the action hero who starred in her first film and married the action hero who starred in her second film.

A-20. “Thank you for a memorable afternoon. Usually one must go to a bowling alley to meet a woman of your stature.”

A-31. Her Broadway role in a Eugene O’Neill revival enabled her to complete the Triple Crown of Acting.

A-43. This was the youngest African American actor to win a competitive Oscar.

A-44. “If there's nothing else, there's applause. I've listened backstage to people applaud. It's like - like waves of love coming over the footlights and wrapping you up.

A-50. “Some people have a hard time explaining rock 'n' roll. I don't think anyone can really explain rock 'n' roll. Maybe Pete Townshend, but that's okay. Rock 'n' roll is a lifestyle and a way of thinking ... and it's not about money and popularity. Although, some money would be nice. But it's a voice that says, ‘Here I am ... and f**k you if you can't understand me.’ And one of these people is gonna save the world.

A-58. “You can start by wiping that f**king dumb-ass smile off your rosy f**ing cheeks! Then you can give me a f**ing automobile! A f**ing Datsun, a f**ing Toyota, a f**ing Mustang, a f**ing Buick! Four f**ing wheels and a seat!”

Surprisingly for a scholarly work on early Virginia, it was doing a brisk nationwide sale - possibly because it was liberally peppered with sex.

Kind of a crazy thing to do, but we done it anyway. She bet me a silver dollar she could beat me across. She did. This old horse I was riding didn't want to take the water.

BAD DAY AT BLACK ROCK

B-37. This movie featured my favorite actress in a role originated on Broadway by Tammy Grimes.

CALIFORNIA SUITE?

B-38. “We don't read and write poetry because it's cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion.

On the actors list, only one 'definite' answer is incorrect. It's a case of 'right church, wrong pew.'

Of the eight actors with question marks, five are correct.

Both of the questions with alternate answers, include the right actor.

On the films list, four definite answers are incorrect.

All three of the films with question marks are correct.

Both of the questions with alternate answers, include the right film.

A-50. “Some people have a hard time explaining rock 'n' roll. I don't think anyone can really explain rock 'n' roll. Maybe Pete Townshend, but that's okay. Rock 'n' roll is a lifestyle and a way of thinking ... and it's not about money and popularity. Although, some money would be nice. But it's a voice that says, ‘Here I am ... and f**k you if you can't understand me.’ And one of these people is gonna save the world. And that means that rock 'n' roll can save the world ... all of us together. And the chicks are great. But what it all comes down to is that thing. The indefinable thing when people catch something in your music.”

JACK BLACK?

"And the chicks are great." Band Aids. How about JASON LEE in Almost Famous?


A-35. Bette Davis, Cate Blanchett, and this character actress each played the same real-life role on the big screen twice.

JUDI DENCH? Nope. Just once. It's FLORA ROBSON

The "right church, wrong pew" one:

A-44. “If there's nothing else, there's applause. I've listened backstage to people applaud. It's like - like waves of love coming over the footlights and wrapping you up. Imagine, to know every night that different hundreds of people love you. They smile, their eyes shine, you've pleased them. They want you. You belong. Just that alone is worth anything.”

GEORGE SANDERS

The correct pew is ANNE BAXTER

JACK BLACK?

I don't know why this didn't jump out at me immediately, it's from one of my favorite movies. The correct answer is JASON LEE in Almost Famous.


A-52. “I think I do remember hearing something on TV about colon cleansin'. They say everyone should have one. I'm thinkin' about gettin' me an appointment and go down and get my colon cleansed thoroughly.”

B-9. This horror movie features the only Oscar nominee for Best Original Song written in Latin … but the Pope would not have approved.

THE EXORCIST? THE OMEN?
This is definitely The Omen, which also won Jerry Goldsmith his only Oscar for the movie's score.
