Movie Trivia Answers 10/30

Here are the questions again, followed by my answers in italics.
MightyMom said...
who said in what movie "I'm your number 1 fan" ????
Annie Wilkes (Kathy Bates) said it to Paul ______ (James Caan) in the movie "Misery".

what movie that was based on a famous author's book was remade into a miniseries. The miniseries left out the most famous line from the movie, which was said by Jack Nicholson.
The Movie was "The Shining", as was the miniseries. And actually, as scary as Jack Nicholson's portrayal was, the miniseries more closely followed the actual book--especially the ending. And I'm not sure if the line you were referring to was "Wendy, I'm Home" or "Heeerree's Johnny!"

Name a movie starring Jimmy Smits which was about a town in Maine where all the people were made smarter by an alien spaceship that had landed close by.
"The Tommyknockers."

what movie had this line "It floats....we all float down here." said by a clown
"IT". And I think that was a made-for-TV movie.

Bonus Question.

What's the 1 thing that is common to all 4 movies??
They are all based on books by Stephen King.
(The reason I said the joke was on MM, is because I am a MAJOR Stephen King fan. I have all his publicly released books, except the "Dark Tower" series (I hated that series) and the two he co-wrote with Peter Straub. Those were losers, too, as far as I'm concerned.)




Jacquie has left a new comment on your post "Saturday at the Movies: Since the wizard of oz is the scariest movie i watch (i still cover my eyes when dorothy is looking at the crystal ball and the witch appears), here the question: who was originally slated to play the tin man and why did he have to leave the movie?
Later, she added:
so here's a hint...he played on a tv show that you might see on nick at nite.

I didn't know this one. It had to be someone older to have been young enough to make this movie in 1939, and yet to have had a TV series from the 50s or 60s. I ruled out Andy Griffith, and Fred Gwynne (I think he was too tall and clumsy) and I was thinking it was Al Lewis, who played Grandpa on The Munsters or William Frawley, who played Fred Mertz on "I Love Lucy", especially as he used to sing and dance on TV.
But, I do remember hearing something about this a long time ago, and I think it was because whoever it was, was allergic to the paint used to make him metallic-looking.



Pinky asked:
OK, in The Blair Witch Project, what was the object that was found wrapped up in a piece of fabric??
tee hee.

(Presumably) Joshua's tongue and some teeth. (I HATED that movie. I fully believed it was a real item, and was infuriated when it came out that it was all a hoax. I've never watched again until tonight, when I had to watch it to answer this question. Thank you SO much, Pinky!)

#2 Who was the killer in What Lies Beneath?
Harrison Ford, who played Michelle Pfeiffer's husband.

#3 In the movie, Stir of Echoes, starring Kevin Bacon, what color was the coat that the victim was wearing?
This one I'm not sure about, either. It was a retarded girl, and so I'm going to guess the coat was either pink or white.

Okay, how'd I do?

Three cheers for The King!

by the way, I've not read any of his since The Cell. Ever since the end of the Dark Tower Series he's wandered off into lala land for me. The writing just isn't as good.

oooh, you are good! he did have a reaction to the tin man make-up...and you had good guesses...it was our old favorite, uncle jed of the beverly hillbillies (my son told me he's on tvland not nick at nite...my bad) good ole buddy ebsen.

Stephanie D. said...

AHHHHH! I didn't think of Buddy Ebsen! That makes sense, though. It doesn't really matter whether it's Nick at Night, or TV Land--I got your hint--but I haven't thought about The Beverly Hillbillies in years, much less watched them.

Good question!

Pinky said...

EWww. I didn't know there was a tongue in there. I couldn't tell if it was teeth or a finger. Good for you!!

The coat was orange.

Oh, and the Blair Witch scared the pee outta me. I thought it was real too. I still don't know if I can ever go camping again. sheesh.

ORANGE! Aggggh! I only saw it once or twice, and I didn't remember.

Scared me too! J-Man and I went to see it at the theater, and we were surrounded by a bunch of teens, because it was a night showing. I screamed as much as anyone else! I still can't believe I was so gullible.
