Trivia Time - Part 30

Before we start this week's game, here's a recap from last week. Sazball gave two correct answers for #3, but for the second part of the answer, I was also looking for the actor Angus Lennie. For question # 4, Andy Devine did four films for director William Wellman. OK, now that I have that out of the way, let's start this week game.

Who Am I? During the early to mid 1960s, I was the highest paid "guest star" on television. Who Am I?

#1. Brain Buster # 1. In the 1947 Universal prison film Brute Force, what film is shown during "movie night"?

#2. Who played Connie Sellecca's mother on The Greatest American Hero?

#3. Brain Buster #2. What future Oscar-winning actor played the "jump master" in the James Cagney film 13 Rue Madeleine?

#4. Brain Buster #3. Wanted Dead Or Alive was a spin-off of what TV show? Who was the star?

#5. Brain Buster # 4. Who once called himself "The King of Unsold Pilots"?

#6. How many TV series has Robert Urich done (not counting mini-series)?

#7. Brain Buster #5. Who was the second woman admitted into the Directors Guild of America (DGA)?

#8. Who played Detective Sgt Sam Stone? On what show?

#9. According to an urban myth, during Larry Hagman's "contract problems" with the Dallas productors, this actor was going to replace Hagman as JR. The actor said it never happened, no one from Dallas ever called him. Who is he?

#10. Brain Buster #6. What actor, productor was the director of the early 1950s TV show The Adventures of Kit Carson? Who was the star?

  20. Gilby, you really have to double check so of those listings , some of the are WRONG.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I did double check -- they were short lived series. I only checked out of my own curiosity, since I only remembered 8 shows on my own.
