    Clue #7: The actor Paul Douglas was cast in Billy Wilder's The Apartment (1960) as Mr. Sheldrake but died before filming. He played the original Harry Brock in the stage version. Hence, he "was not invited."Clue #8: You guys got that one.Clue #9: I was making a direct tie to Yesterday director George Cukor. Whale and Cukor were later known for their social lives but also had many similarities in approach. Cukor directed women. He's known as the "Woman's director." Again hence, "a James Whale of fairer things. Well there you go.

    I get it, it was an obscure way to say it was an expensive script. If timing of said clue, then, was up in the air...you coulda said..

    Eszterhas comes twice or thrice(which would have come up with even more obscure movies...)

    I thought it was supposed to be an MGM/UA-owned film. As far as I know Born Yesterday is a Columbia (Sony)-owned film. Perhaps I'm missing something?

    Born Yesterday is a terrific addition to the Twilight Time label.

    When it comes to this game, however, I thought the clues were too obscure for some of us, considering the right answer came only after the hints gave everything away.

    When this second round started it was fun but it quickly became frustrating, IMHO.

    Nevertheless, this whole guessing-game structure is terrific and will get even better with a little more polishing.

    I'd like to thank Mr. Pullen as he is a terrific host indeed!

    I thought it was perfect. Clues shoild be very hard to start then get easier as it takes longer. In the beginnjng I had no clue but the clues and guesses kept me interested enough to keep checking back and doing my tiny bit of "research".

    I'm sorry, but clues 4 and 6 were way too tenuous for my tastes. Difficult is one thing, but obtuse is something else. But it was fun for a while, and I do congratulate Mr. Pullen for stumping this group! And it certainly is a great title for TT.

    Probably the reason you thought that was many of the guesses I received were MGM/UA. If a guess was Fox, Sony, or MGM/UA, I would always say, "This is ..." I noticed some were starting to think it was MGM/UA and I did my best to discourage it. I never said what studio it came from. Never. My thanks to all of you for playing.

    You'll have my doctor bill within 10 days for the lingering psychological damage from that Eszterhas clue. :P

    As it turns out, I was off the rails practically from the get-go, stuck on 'Ulysses S.' as the 'Grant' in question...but looking from him as a character in the film.

    Congratulations on a reel stumper Bruce!

    I am going to close this thread.

    We will hold our final game on Sunday.

    We will attempt to make the clues somewhat easier, but understand, we don't
    want the game to end within a day.
