    2. 8 and 14 are correct. Well done! I don't think Cary was a captain for the Navy in FATHER GOOSE; he was a "spotter" for them.

    3. Ok - I thought Grant was an x-old Aussie 'salt' in Father Goose but maybe not - he was however a Royal Naval Capt in The Pride and the Passion.

    1. Right, right, and right! For #9, I actually had a different answer, so there's another correct response for Cary as an artist.

  7. #3, The Howards of Virginia.

    For #9, just a guess, Indiscreet?

    1. Yes, THE HOWARDS OF VIRGINIA is correct. I don't think he's an artist in INDISCREET.

  10. For No.5, I'd argue that Grant was an agent of the government in "Charade," too.
