No, Michael, The Quiet Man.. John Wayne, Maureen Ohara, that big Irish McGlauchlin (sp )from Gunga Din.

The actor I speak of is Ben(?) Curtis, AKA Festus Hagen of Gunsmoke.  But, enough of that.

Your turn.

Eastwood?  As for You’ve Got Mail, I’m guessing that Hudson/Day movie where they shared a party line?  Was the name Pillow Talk?

Sorry, I guess I don’t come to the forum often enough to play.

Beat the Devil (1954) is a terrific film, by the way. Try to get a copy of it off TCM, it’s a much nicer print than any of the public domain DVDs out there.

ETA: You’ve Got Mail was The Shop Around The Corner in 1940, and In The Good Old Summertime in 1949. I prefer the latter because (a) Judy Garland and (b) the original 1940 version is really cruel. Typical Lubitsch, but sometimes it’s just too much for me.

My copy of Beat the Devil…VHS…is so bad, I can barely watch it. I am not sure which version of The Shop around the Corner I like best. In truth, I lean towards the most recent version, and I agree with you that the original is a bit dark.
Sidney Pollack, Randall.

I thought of Sidney, but didn’t think he’d been in most of his.  Only recall him in a few…

My favorite line of his from Tootsie. “Sure Michael Dorsey is a name… when you want to send a steak back, Michael Dorsey is a name..”

That was a great line…from a great movie.

I liked the Jimmy Stewart version, but I like Jimmy Stewart in general.

Jimmy Stewart question. 

Jimmy had two “companions” in all of his movies of a certain genre.

What genre, and what companions?

Not sure what you mean by “companions”
I’ll take a wild stab at it anyway. My guess is westerns and they were all directed by Anthony Mann and John Ford…I think

Ok. Weak question. He wore the same hat and had the same horse in all of his westerns. If you watched his movies in chronological order, you watch his hat fade and the sweat ring grow larger and dirtier film by film

Now, that is some trivia…a fun question….wracked my brain on that one. Now, you said ALL in the genre. I can think of two westerns where he didn’t ride a horse. The Man who Shot Liberty Valance and How the West was Won. In the latter, he did not wear a cowboy hat, nor did he ride a horse…he rode a canoe…in the former, he did not ride a horse, and the hat, which he only wore in a couple of scenes, looked pretty new and was nothing like the hats he wore in other films. Explain this to me.
Maybe you can also explain why I have to re-login every week on this forum.  Maybe I should direct that to Jelani…hahaha

Oh, at least we got some readers interested.  It seems that more people are interested in movies than they are in politics.  I wish they would jump in and answer some of these questions just for fun, so that you and I and Stacia don’t have to wrack our brains so much.
