Trivia Time Part 23

I've been asked: "Paul, how and where do the questions for Trivia Time come from?" Not from any books or trivia games...just from my "sick twisted little" TV and film mind. With the Super Bowl this past weekend, some of the questions MAY have something to do with football films.

Who Am I? I'm known as screenwriter, but I've done some (if you call it that) acting. Please excuse me, I have to go feed the Alien. Who Am I?

#1. What was the film that Who Am I was in?
#2. Was there another director/screenwriter in the film? Who?
#3. Brain Buster # 1. In the film Number One, who was Number One? What team did he play for? What was his position?
#4. Brain Buster #2. What famous football player did Burt Lancaster play? In what film?
#5. Brain Buster #3. This film's screenplay came about because the LAPD kept flying over this screenwriter's North Hollywood home at night. What's the film? Who's the screenwriter?
#6.Brain Buster #4. Name the female co-star of the film.
#7.Brain Buster # 5.The productors used this composer's symphony in the film Alien.with out Jerry Goldsmiths knowledge. Who is he and what symphony did they use?
#8.Brain Buster #6. Who was the male co-star in most of the James Stewart/Anthony Mann films?
#9 Most of the Stewart / Mann films were made at Universal. Name three that were not and studios where they were made.
#10. Brain Buster #8. James Stewart & Henry Fonda made two Westerns together. Name the films in order and the director of the second film.

Hey, Saz beat me to Dan O'Bannon!

#3. Charlton Heston was a quarterback in NUMBER ONE. I'll guess the Rams, but I'm not sure.

#8. This is hard, as Arthur Kennedy, Jay C. Flippen, and Harry Morgan were all in more than one (Rock was in two of them).

#9. THE NAKED SPUR and THE MAN FROM LARAMIE weren't Universal pics.

Rick29 said...

#10. The other was CHEYENNE SOCIAL CLUB directed by Gene Kelly (!). By the way, I love the Stwart-Mann films.

#7. Howard Hanson's Symphony #2, Romantic

Paul 2 said...

Wow OK where to start.Dawn, Your Right on #10 and Rick, got the other. Sazball Who Am i is right as is # 2 # 4#7 BTW Sazball you could have also said John Carpenter. Rick on #3 your 2/3 right. but the team was not the Rams.On # 8 you have the right answer in your "group" #9 is right but you need one more film. (hint it's not a western)

Paul 2 said...

For some reason on Question # 9 it said two instead of 3 which was on the first draft, looks like my son Matthew is at work again. Rick to make up for you having to come up with another film, I'll give you a "Free Pass" if you can name the Non Western Stewart / Mann films. Big Hint you need Three.

#5. Blue Thunder
Dan O'Bannon

sazball said...

#6. Candy Clark

Paul 2 said...

Sazball, very good both are correct! OK Lets recap. Still need one film for #9 and the team for #3. Also Rick has a bonus question, and #8 still needs a correct answer.

#9. Strageic Air Command at Paramount

Paul 2 said...

Sazball ,Rick did not name the studios for Naked Spur, and the Man from Laramie. Want to 'give it a shot"?and SAC is correct.

sazball said...

#8. Looks like Jay C. and Harry are tied with 5 each.

sazball said...

#9. MGM and Columbia

Paul 2 said...

Sazball I'll take either one. But for some reason I thought Harry did 6 , must be getting old.Sazball if you want to try Ricks " Bonus Question" I'll give you a "Free Pass" for next week also.

sazball said...

Strategic air Commsnd
Thunder Bay
The Glenn Miller Story

Paul 2 said...

Sazball, Very Good you have your first "Free Pass" which means you can not lose next week. But you still have to play,yeah like I could stop you. LOL

Paul 2 said...

Oh BTW I'm still looking for the team for #3.

Rick29 said...

It's the Saints. Hey, you gave away my bonus question while I was at work (where I can't comment on posts).

Paul 2 said...

Rick ,I knew you were at work, but Sazball was on such a hot streak I thought I'd give her a shot. BTW you did not give the studios on # 9 and she did. But I will give you a" Free Pass" anyway. Are you Happy Now Rick? LOL

Rick29 said...

Hey, that sounds like a Michelle Branch song... And yes, Saz was smokin' those questions!

Paul 2 said...

Rick,You Just knew she was going to go for it anyway. Saz, you Rock.
