B-49. The censors wanted to cut General McAuliffe’s famous reply to a Nazi surrender demand out of this film, but were finally convinced that no other word would do.

THE BATTLE OF THE BULGE
I had a feeling that the censors wouldn't be too concerned about using the word "Nuts" in a 1965 movie and I was right. This is Battleground, a 1949 film (that's also a much better movie).

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.

One of the weirder moments in Oscar history was when they had to stage Ave Satani as one of the song nominees.

Of course, a lot of people think a bunch of people onstage singing "Hail, Satan" is perfectly appropriate for a Hollywood event....

Among the actors, all of the answers are either correct or include the correct answer.

Among the movies, there are three 'definite' answers that are wrong. The one with alternate answers includes the correct answer.

Among the actors, all of the answers are either correct or include the correct answer.

Among the movies, there are three 'definite' answers that are wrong. The one with alternate answers includes the correct answer.
B-13, B-22 and B-39 have been identified as the wrong ones, so everything else in LB's consolidation is correct, and we can remove their clues:

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.

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

Beatty has four nominations, Eastwood 2. It's Beatty

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.”
TERI GARR? EMMA STONE?

Definitely EMMA STONE in La La Land


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.

Still don't know this one

A-25. Lots of people over the years may have expressed a desire to kill this television commentator, but the conspirators in a 1995 thriller actually succeeded.

Could this be DENNIS MILLER, in The Net?



A-42. “Something hit us! All the flight crew is dead or badly injured! There's no one left to fly the plane! Help us! Oh my God, help us!”
KAREN BLACK? JULIE HAGERTY?


Definitely KAREN BLACK in Airport 1975

A-43. This was the youngest African American actor to win a competitive Oscar.
LUPITA N'YONGO? JENNIFER HUDSON?

HUDSON appears to have been about 5 years younger than N'Yongo when she won.

Unbilled = cameos?

Unbilled = something without a William?

Cameos in movies starring a William who is also the star of one of the movies on List B?

I got nothin'

Trying to jump start this again. The actors are on the list in two different capacities. The logical guess here is that one actor is on the list for a film he or she appeared it while the other is on there for a different reason. The name that strikes me is Curly Howard. He made dozens of Three Stooges shorts, but I can't picture Frank including him on the basis of a short subject whose only other significant actors are the other Stooges. So I'm wondering if he's on here for his name. There aren't a whole lot of acting Curlys out there, so maybe this is a link to a film that has the name word "Curly" in it.

Curly Sue perhaps?

Or maybe a film that has a character named Curly. Oklahoma and City Slickers are two that I can think of off hand.
