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?


Ha! Totally didn't think of that.

I tried but failed to find the one definite answer that’s wrong, so I could mark the rest correct. Nevertheless, here’s an updated consolidation…

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.

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.”

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.

There are quite a few movies with the same star.

Off the top of my head - Jimmy Stewart, Lillian Gish, Streisand, Kirk Douglas, Jane Fonda, Faye Dunaway, Bette Davis are all in two movies. If 35 is Top Hat, we can add Fred Astaire.

I have no idea what that means, if anything.

Melly correctly identified the wrong definite.

Of those answers with a question mark, one is right and one is wrong.

Of those answers with two alternates, one includes the right answer and one does not. In the latter instance, one of the choices does not fulfill one part of the clue, and the other does not fulfill a different part of the clue.

The Tangredi may be hard to spot. Hard, but not impossible. It may become more obvious over time.

I tried but failed to find the one definite answer that’s wrong, so I could mark the rest correct. Nevertheless, here’s an updated consolidation…

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.

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

“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.”

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.”
BRIEF ENCOUNTER

12. This 2007 film is the second sequel to a 2001 remake of a 1960 movie.
OCEANS 13

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!”

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.”

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.”
GOOD NIGHT AND GOOD LUCK

THE DEFIANT ONES

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.”
YANKEE-DOODLE DANDY

Star Wars.

The Exorcist did not hit #1 and Rocky was not an instrumental.

I think #22 is called EQUILIBRIUM, a take on Fahrenheit 451 with Christian Bale, Emily Watson, and Taye Diggs.

I checked on the plot of Equilibrium, and I can see how it might be considered a legit answer to the question. So I will add that the film I have in mind was released in 1971.

What's this crud about no movie tonight?

I bet it is MISTER ROBERTS.

AND it gives us two Jack Lemmon movies (China Syndrome) and two Henry Fondas (On Golden Pond)

And we have two Stanwycks - Meet John Doe and Double Indemnity.


Again … I don't know it means anything but it's pretty interesting.

Wow. Now I feel really more stupider.

22. is THX 1138, George Lucas's directorial debut and produced by Francis Ford Coppola. It also had name actors in it, like Donald Pleasance and Robert Duvall. More Oscar winners to choose from.

Everything on here is right. The unanswered question was actually answered by someone earlier.

Interesting observations have been made.

I think I've got it.

The American Film Institute's Life Achievement Award, has been given out exactly 46 times (no alternate matches). Because I had to look up the award, I"m just going to list the three I used to prove it to myself, and let any other movie buffs out there try to figure out the other matches.

Lillian Gish (the one who led me there) -- 2. Intolerance and 30. The Whales of August.

George Lucas (because THX 1138 and Star Wars both being added late got me thinking about lifetime awards) -- 22. THX 1138 and 50. Star Wars: A New Hope

Robert Wise (the coincidence I noted early on) -- 48. Star Trek: The Motion Picture and 16. The Sound of Music.

I think I've got it.

The American Film Institute's Life Achievement Award, has been given out exactly 46 times (no alternate matches). Because I had to look up the award, I"m just going to list the three I used to prove it to myself, and let any other movie buffs out there try to figure out the other matches.

Lillian Gish (the one who led me there) -- 2. Intolerance and 30. The Whales of August.

George Lucas (because THX 1138 and Star Wars both being added late got me thinking about lifetime awards) -- 22. THX 1138 and 50. Star Wars: A New Hope

Robert Wise (the coincidence I noted early on) -- 48. Star Trek: The Motion Picture and 16. The Sound of Music.


And that explains WHY there are so many movies with the same people.

James Cagney - 26. MISTER ROBERTS and 37. YANKEE-DOODLE DANDY
Bette Davis - 54. THE LITTLE FOXES and 30. The Whales of August
Henry Fonda - 26. MISTER ROBERTS and 28. ON GOLDEN POND
James Stewart - 47. THE MAN WHO SHOT LIBERTY VALANCE and 1. IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE
Gene Kelly - 33. INHERIT THE WIND and director of 46. HELLO, DOLLY!
Barbara Stanwyck -9. DOUBLE INDEMNITY and 39. MEET JOHN DOE
Jack Lemmon - 4. CHINA SYNDROME and 26. MISTER ROBERTS
Barbra Streisand - 46. HELLO, DOLLY! and 7. FUNNY GIRL
Shirley MacLaine - 14.THE TURNING POINT and 44. THE TROUBLE WITH HARRY
Mel Brooks - 25. SPACEBALLS and producer of 42. THE ELEPHANT MAN
