Game #181: Life in Hollywood

Made it on schedule!

Identify the 55 movies below. (Every other clue is a quotation.) Then, match them into 46 pairs according to a Tangredi, or principle you must discover for yourself. 22 movies will be used twice, six movies will be used three times, and one movie will be used four times.

There will be no alternate matches.

1. “I been savin' this money for a divorce, if ever I got a husband.”

2. Villains in this epic film include the Queen Mother, the High Priest, and the Musketeer of the Slums.

3. “I thought you had reservations about the gods.”
“Privately I believe in none of them - neither do you. Publicly, I believe in them all.”

4. When the heat generated exceeds the heat removed, the result might be – at least theoretically – the title of this 1979 film.

5. “George … we’re in trouble … real trouble … I think.”
“What do you mean?”
Remember … the first night you came here? Oh, I’m so worried!”

6. The “hero” of this 1964 thriller blackmails the title character into marriage and eventually rapes her – but, this being the pre-Weinstein era, they presumably live happily ever after.

7. “What kind of mother would name a boy Florence?”
“It's Florenz-zzz.”
“What kind of mother would name a boy Florenz-zzzzzz?”

8. The subject of this biopic said he never realized what a horrible person he was until he saw the movie. (His ex-wife assured him that, in real life, he was even worse.)

9. “How fast was I going, officer?”
“I'd say around ninety.”
“Suppose you get down off your motorcycle and give me a ticket.”
“Suppose I let you off with a warning this time.”
“Suppose it doesn't take.”
“Suppose I have to whack you over the knuckles.”
“Suppose I bust out crying and put my head on your shoulder.”
“Suppose you try putting it on my husband's shoulder.”
“That tears it.”

10. Fifty years after the release of this film, it helped set the stage for one of the most embarrassing gaffes ever broadcast live on television.

11. “Fred, dear Fred. There's so much that I want to say to you. You're the only one in the world with enough wisdom and gentleness to understand. If only it was somebody else's story and not mine. As it is, you're the only one in the world that I can never tell. Never, never. Because even if I waited until we were old, old people and told you then, you'd be bound to look back over the years and be hurt. And my dear, I don't want you to be hurt. You see, we're a happily married couple and let's never forget that. This is my home. You're my husband. And my children are upstairs in bed. I'm a happily married woman - or I was, rather, until a few weeks ago. This is my whole world, and it's enough, or rather, it was until a few weeks ago. But, oh, Fred, I've been so foolish. I've fallen in love. I'm an ordinary woman. I didn't think such violent things could happen to ordinary people.”

12. This 2007 film is the second sequel to a 2001 remake of a 1960 movie.

13. “No, no, no, no. I'm too young to be a grandmother. Grandmothers are old. They bake, and they sew, and they tell you stories about the Depression. I was at Woodstock, for Christ's sake! I peed in a field! I hung on to the Who's helicopter as it flew away!”

14. This movie was loosely inspired by the lifelong friendship between Isabel Mirrow Brown and Nora Kaye.

15. “In this courtroom, Mr. Miller, justice is blind to matters of race, creed, color, religion, and sexual orientation.”
“With all due respect, your honor, we don't live in this courtroom, do we?”

16. You won’t find the song I sang on WWTBAM in this movie, only in the original stage score.

17. “I goddamn near lost my nose. And I like it. I like breathing through it.”

18. This movie tied an Oscar record that had been set eight years earlier by the film in Clue #14. (It was a record neither film wanted.)

19. “I think the reason why Mommy left was because for a long time, I kept trying to make her be a certain kind of person. A certain kind of wife that I thought she was supposed to be. And she just wasn't like that. She was ... she just wasn't like that. I think that she tried for so long to make me happy ... and when she couldn't, she tried to talk to me about it. But I wasn't listening. I was too busy, too wrapped up ... just thinking about myself. And I thought that anytime I was happy, she was happy. But I think underneath she was very sad. Mommy stayed here longer than she wanted because she loves you so much. And the reason why Mommy couldn't stay anymore ... was because she couldn't stand me. She didn't leave because of you. She left because of me.”

20. This incredibly grim 1959 film led to a resurgence in popularity of a song about a jolly swagman.

21. “When a naked man is chasing a woman through a dark alley with a butcher knife and a hard-on, I figure he isn't out collecting for the Red Cross.”

22. A flop at the time of its release, this film about a dystopian society where sex is forbidden and psychotropic drugs are mandatory has since attained cult status.

23. “I have a head for business and a body for sin.”

24. When this movie was turned into a TV sitcom, only one member of the film cast went with it; later, another member of the film cast joined the sitcom, but in a different role.

25. “What the hell am I looking at? When does this happen in the movie?”
“Now. You're looking at now, sir. Everything that happens now, is happening now.”
“What happened to then?”
“We passed then.”
“When?”
“Just now. We're at now now.”
“Go back to then.”
“When?”
“Now.”
“Now?”
“Now.”
“I can't.”
“Why?”
“We missed it.”
“When?”
“Just now.”
“When will then be now?”
“Soon.”

26. One obvious difference between this movie and the Broadway hit on which it was based was the substitution of the word “crud” for “crap” in the very last line.

27. “Yeah, that's right! That's right! We bad!”

28. This movie was the occasion of an actress setting two Oscar records, one of which would later be broken by one of the actresses she defeated.

29. “Our history will be what we make of it. And if there are any historians about fifty or a hundred year from now, and there should be preserved the kinescopes of one week of all three networks, they will there find, recorded in black and white and in color, evidence of decadence, escapism, and insulation from the realities of the world in which we live. We are currently wealthy, fat, comfortable, and complacent. We have a built in allergy to unpleasant or disturbing information; our mass media reflect this. But unless we get up off our fat surpluses, and recognize that television, in the main, is being use to distract, delude, amuse, and insulate us, then television and those who finance it, those who look at it, and those who work at it, may see a totally different picture, too late.”

30. Harriette Lake received her only Oscar nomination for this film.

31. “I taught some of the stupidest children God ever put on the face of this earth and all of them could read well enough to find a name on a tombstone.”

32. The title role of this 1996 drama was played by the husband of the actress who spoke the line in the preceding clue.

33. “I do not think about things I do not think about.”
“Do you ever think about things you do think about?”

34. This 1956 film was far more faithful to the 1851 novel than the silent or first sound versions, which added a love interest, a happy ending, and a Great Profile.

35. “Who was his dam?”
“What?”
“I said who was his dam?”
“I don't know miss, he didn't give a – ”

36. The Pam Grier film Black Mama, White Mama was inspired by this earlier – and far better – movie.

37. “It seems it always happens. Whenever we get too high-hat and too sophisticated for flag-waving, some thug nation decides we're a push-over all ready to be blackjacked. And it isn't long before we're looking up, mighty anxiously, to be sure the flag's still waving over us.”

38. If Orson Welles hadn’t asked for too much money, he might have been cast in this film – and subsequently sat at the top of a list that also includes Christopher Lee, Louis Jourdan, Christopher Walken, and Javier Bardem.

39. “Gangway, you helots!”

40. The Egyptian actor who played the titular role in this film had originally been cast in a supporting part, and was as surprised as anyone when he ended up in the lead.

41. “Tell me I have led a good life.”
“What?”
“Tell me I’m a good man.”

42. This 1980 movie has the same title and subject matter as – but was not based directly on – the previous years’ Tony-winning play.

43. “Uh-oh, I bring the wrong color thread. I assumed you'd be wearing a black ‘tuxado.’”
“It is a black ‘tuxado.’”
“I don't think so, babe. This tux is ‘nuffy blue. No doubt about it.”
“What're you talking about? Armani doesn't make a blue tuxedo.”
“Armani don't also make ‘polyaster.’"

44. One of five films withheld from circulation by its director until 1984 – four years after his death – it was the only one of the five not to star the same leading man.

45. “You can sit around with the gin running out of your mouth; you can humiliate me; you can tear me to pieces all night, that's perfectly okay, that's all right.”
“You can stand it!”
“I cannot stand it!”
“You can stand it, you married me for it!”

46. Five years before the release of this film, the Broadway show on which it was based won a Tony for Best Musical; 48 years after the release of this film, the Broadway show on which it was based won a Tony for Best Musical Revival.

47. “I know those law books mean a lot to you, but not out here. Out here a man settles his own problems.”

48. In his review of this 1979 movie, Roger Ebert noted, “On the one hand we have incomprehensible alien forces and a plot that reaches out to the edge of the galaxy. On the other hand, confronting these vast forces, we have television pop heroes.”

49. “I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.”

50. The only instrumental movie theme to hit Number One between the themes from Romeo and Juliet and Chariots of Fire was the theme from this movie.

51. “It's a hell of a thing, killing a man. Take away all he's got and all he's ever gonna have.”
“Yeah, well, I guess they had it coming.”
“We all got it coming, kid.”

52. Thanks to this film, a prominent songwriter won an Oscar to go with his record six Tony Awards.

53. “Koufax looks down! He's looking at the great Mickey Mantle now! Here comes the pitch! Mantle swings! It's a f**king home run!”

54. The title of this drama is taken from the same Biblical verse as the title of a later movie starring Edward G. Robinson and Margaret O’Brien.

55. “If I hadn't been very rich, I might have been a really great man.”
“Don’t you think you are?”
“I think I did pretty well under the circumstances.”
“What would you like to have been?”
“Everything you hate.”

I don't usually get in on the movie games, but....


12. This 2007 film is the second sequel to a 2001 remake of a 1960 movie.

Seems like it would be one of the Oceans movies, right? I think OCEANS 13 was the third movie...


48. In his review of this 1979 movie, Roger Ebert noted, “On the one hand we have incomprehensible alien forces and a plot that reaches out to the edge of the galaxy. On the other hand, confronting these vast forces, we have television pop heroes.”

ALIEN fits the year, as I recall from the Amy Turner 64K question I witnessed...


Note to self: I need to make damn sure I'm REPLYING and not EDITING from now on. I damn near wiped out Frank's game making this response...

As previously noted it is indeed Parenthood and not Father of the Bride - do not consider my submission in the consolation.

44. One of five films withheld from circulation by its director until 1984 – four years after his death – it was the only one of the five not to star the same leading man.

Could this be The Trouble With Harry with the other 4 being Rope, The Man Who Knew Too Much (remake), Vertigo and Rear WIndow?

A bit late to the party, but I'll see what I can contribute

1. “I been savin' this money for a divorce, if ever I got a husband.”

It's a Wonderful Life

4. When the heat generated exceeds the heat removed, the result might be – at least theoretically – the title of this 1979 film.

The China Syndrome

10. Fifty years after the release of this film, it helped set the stage for one of the most embarrassing gaffes ever broadcast live on television.

Bonnie and Clyde

13. “No, no, no, no. I'm too young to be a grandmother. Grandmothers are old. They bake, and they sew, and they tell you stories about the Depression. I was at Woodstock, for Christ's sake! I peed in a field! I hung on to the Who's helicopter as it flew away!”

Terms of Endearment?

15. “In this courtroom, Mr. Miller, justice is blind to matters of race, creed, color, religion, and sexual orientation.”
“With all due respect, your honor, we don't live in this courtroom, do we?”

Philadelphia?

17. “I goddamn near lost my nose. And I like it. I like breathing through it.”

Chinatown

19. “I think the reason why Mommy left was because for a long time, I kept trying to make her be a certain kind of person. A certain kind of wife that I thought she was supposed to be. And she just wasn't like that. She was ... she just wasn't like that. I think that she tried for so long to make me happy ... and when she couldn't, she tried to talk to me about it. But I wasn't listening. I was too busy, too wrapped up ... just thinking about myself. And I thought that anytime I was happy, she was happy. But I think underneath she was very sad. Mommy stayed here longer than she wanted because she loves you so much. And the reason why Mommy couldn't stay anymore ... was because she couldn't stand me. She didn't leave because of you. She left because of me.”

Kramer Vs Kramer

23. “I have a head for business and a body for sin.”

Working Girl

24. When this movie was turned into a TV sitcom, only one member of the film cast went with it; later, another member of the film cast joined the sitcom, but in a different role.

Private Benjamin?

27. “Yeah, that's right! That's right! We bad!”

Stir Crazy

35. “Who was his dam?”
“What?”
“I said who was his dam?”
“I don't know miss, he didn't give a – ”

Seabiscuit?

42. This 1980 movie has the same title and subject matter as – but was not based directly on – the previous years’ Tony-winning play.

Ordinary People?

45. “You can sit around with the gin running out of your mouth; you can humiliate me; you can tear me to pieces all night, that's perfectly okay, that's all right.”
“You can stand it!”
“I cannot stand it!”
“You can stand it, you married me for it!”

Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf

46. Five years before the release of this film, the Broadway show on which it was based won a Tony for Best Musical; 48 years after the release of this film, the Broadway show on which it was based won a Tony for Best Musical Revival.

West Side Story?

48. In his review of this 1979 movie, Roger Ebert noted, “On the one hand we have incomprehensible alien forces and a plot that reaches out to the edge of the galaxy. On the other hand, confronting these vast forces, we have television pop heroes.”

Flash Gordon?

50. The only instrumental movie theme to hit Number One between the themes from Romeo and Juliet and Chariots of Fire was the theme from this movie.

The Exorcist

51. “It's a hell of a thing, killing a man. Take away all he's got and all he's ever gonna have.”
“Yeah, well, I guess they had it coming.”
“We all got it coming, kid.”

Unforgiven

52. Thanks to this film, a prominent songwriter won an Oscar to go with his record six Tony Awards.

The Sting

53. “Koufax looks down! He's looking at the great Mickey Mantle now! Here comes the pitch! Mantle swings! It's a f**king home run!”

One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest

This is my first shot at this game, so I don't have a lot to contribute.

28. This movie was the occasion of an actress setting two Oscar records, one of which would later be broken by one of the actresses she defeated.

This could be ON GOLDEN POND because Katharine Hepburn's record number of Oscar nominations was since passed by Meryl Streep, who was nominated for Best Actress that year.

50. The only instrumental movie theme to hit Number One between the themes from Romeo and Juliet and Chariots of Fire was the theme from this movie.
LOVE STORY?

I'm thinking ROCKY on this one.

I'm intrigued that we're dealing with such a short list of clues (55 total) for a Tangredi game. Just movie titles. No separate set of clues for actors.

And why Ocean's 13, but not one of the earlier movies? Is the number 13 important? Do we need to connect through either Ellen Barkin or Al Pacino?

8. The subject of this biopic said he never realized what a horrible person he was until he saw the movie. (His ex-wife assured him that, in real life, he was even worse.)

How about RAGING BULL?

Wow. My nominee for #52, after a little research, is DICK TRACY, believe it or not. Stephen Sondheim, who had at that point won six Tonys, won for Best Original Song for Sooner or Later. Yikes.

So we have many prestigious films here, many multiple Oscar winners, and relative clunkers like Tracy, Star Trek: TMP, and The Big Carnaval.

I thought I was on to something when I discovered Robert Wise, who won an Oscar for The Sound of Music, was the director of ST:TMP, but that didn't go very far. But my hunch is it has something to do with Oscar winners or nominees.

I bet Sondheim as well - makes perfect sense.


I was wondering if people played actors/actresses in Oscar winners/nominees for the Life in Hollywood.

And does 46 pairs have anything to do with it?
