More trivia questions will be added as we get these answered. Be bold, be brave....

1: One dollar?
2: "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy."
3: Didn't she just fall right through (so it took no time at all)?
8: Marathon Man?
10: Fifty. ("why not 35?")

1, 2, 8 and 10 are correct Jimbo. On the Contact one, she supposedly had vanished for a longer time, according to her.

3. 16 hours (according to her, and of recorded static).

close bitterms. not quite.

Okay, she thought she was gone for 16 hours and there were 12 hours of static? Oh shoot. Or was it 8 hours of static? Oh well, I'll have to make it a blockbuster night. I was planning on buying Contact anyway.

12, a sled
14. Glengarry Glen Ross & Save the Tiger

I'll give you 12 but the other one is wrong. Sorry

Ah, heck. I can't pass this one up.

1 - $1
2 - All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.
4 - Gowers
6 - I tried to remember that as she was saying it, but you know what? I can't memorize numbers very well. I was 25 before I finally memorized my SS number.
7 - 3 days?
9 -I can't believe I can't remember this... Tony Randall was on the show - was he the host too?
11 - He needs the water, dude
12 - Sled (should you put a spoiler alert in the title?)
13 - Fay Wray and Jessica Lange
14 - Save the Tiger (Actor) and Mister Roberts (supporting actor, I believe)

Les, some of the other guys beat ya' to the punch on some of these, but you still get 4,9,11,13, and 14. I've posted more.

17 - I know John Ford won four of the Babies, for The Quiet Man, How Green was My Valley, Grapes of Wrath, and (I believe) the Informer. Oddly, the master of the westerns never won a Director Oscar for a western!
18 - He read their lips.

I've no idea on 15, 16, or 19.

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

I figured you would know that one. That's right bangsometertron!

20 - Leslie Caron
21 - She was a writer who penned, among other films, Adam's Rib.
22 - Patty Duke

Sorry, i just can't help myself today.

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

Correct Les..Correct.

7 Six days (and actually, both Trent and Sue say "six days" simultaneously)
15 Francis Sawyer ("any of you guys call me Francis, I'll kill ya")

Good job DaveMog. I'm pleasantly happily glad to see you know them.

24. One
23. Writer
22. Patty Duke
20. Leslie Caron
16. 4 Years

24 - Well, in the section I saw, I believe there were at least two...
25 - Kane

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

#3 - 18 hours

Well..Dan you're right on #16. Wrong on a couple and too late on a few more. Bangsy right on 24 and 25. Buddy right on #3.

26. I know Pale Rider and I will guess High Plains Drifter.

5. I say he tied them to a tree and left them to die.

27. Congo

28 Deniro in Angel heart Louis Cyphyr Pacino In Devils Advocate Milton and How about Billy Crystal in Decvonstructing harry...

I bet he's looking for Jack Nicholson in the Withces of Eastwick rather than Crystal.

Just my hunch...

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs (looking, but trying not to touch...)

Er, Witches, that is...

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

L. Bangs is right about the devil question. I need a first and last name on the Pacino character.

Nicholson's name in that film is Daryl. I don't know if we ever got his last name.

Pacino full name in Devils Advocate was John know like Paradise Lost...werent vthey so clever.

Nicholson's character was Daryl Van Horne.

My wife is correct no one gets my sense of Humor. Crystal was a Joke...Oh Well

ok jgandcag( if that really is your name...) You got it right..!!

My name is Jim, but best to keep quiet so as not to cause confusion with the only Jim this site should have. The founder.

19 is Clyde, I believe ("right turn Clyde").

Thats correct Jim.

#28 - Jack was 10, I believe (but looked 40)
#29 - My memory is fuzzy on this one but I think it was something like 12?

You're right Buddy, but you labeled them # 28, and 29. They are # 29 and 30. I knew what you meant though.

Ah, gee, I keep getting sucked back into these things!

31 - Mean Streets and Casino
32 - Phone sexer
33 - The cold
34 - The alien (although the last human to buy it was, well, I'm not sure - Lambert and Parker buy it at about the same time, and in the original uncut pre-theatrical version I believe it was Dallas. I'll say Parker)
35 - Man meat, my friend.

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

Oh, and 23 is actor, I believe. That is Dreyfuss' character, isn't it? Who can forget his Shakespeare performances?

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

"Oh god!..Soylent Green is made of People!!..People!!" What a great movie. Right on all but 34. It wasn't Parker.

Then it was Lambert. Yes?

Shalom, y'all!

Thats correct Lester!

36. Ed Burns' character in "She's the One" is a cab driver.
I have a question. Do you want to ask it?
"What is Tucker's full real name in 'There's Something About Mary?"

Correct on 36 DaveMog.
