Is it a Spaghetti Western?
Richard's guess was so good that it made me think of another with some similar clues: Exodus.
Apologies everyone. Life intervened. One moment on the daily update.
Wait. Nevermind. I keep forgetting about Pacific Time. T-minus 2 hours.
My guess: More Than A Miracle / C'era una volta... (1967)
You have the right idea. MGM/UA, "an Italian muse", a method actor. Close but no cigar.
A fine try. I long for more Lemmon. Alas no.
Ken. Let me clarify. Whenever anyone guesses a possible TT title, I always list that company as a yay or nay. I'm apt to say, "This is a Sony" or "This is MGM/UA." Its a qualifier nothing more.Back to Buona Sera, Mrs. Campbell (1968), no dice. Sorry Ken.
Clue #1: The Method, an Italian muse, Spaghetti sauce, it all comes out in the wash.
Clue #2: Poor Marni Nixon… he “walked the line.”
Clue #3: Richard Brooks directed “too.”
One hopes and dreams for more of the masters. With Tristese (1958) under their belt, TT is more likely to repeat. Maybe not now, but down the road..
More Loren and why do I keep saying no?
We have our first tie. These two essentially ask the same question. Even if they don’t realize it.
As you may have guessed, my hints have several things happening at once. Clue #1 refers to two films. Not one. Okay. There's your answer.
You again? Okay. Here's my revised version.
"Spaghetti sauce" = Newman's Own, as in the one and only Paul Leonard N or wife.
Poor Marni Nixon…he “walked the line" = Newman - or another male character - singing undubbed"
There is one thing I'd still remove. But no one's perfect.
Here are yesterday’s unanswered questions. Feel free to ask again
Schan1269:“I love the "poor Marni" hint.
How many movies did she sing in an not get "direct" credit for...??? (that is my question for the day...however...it may not be answerable..at all)”
JohnMor:“Was the screenplay based on material from another medium?”battlebeast:“Is it a Spaghetti Western?”
Keep asking questions. Without them, we go nowhere.
Guess: The Long Hot Summer
Reasoning: "The Fugitive Kind" = Joanne Woodward, "Spaghetti sauce" = Paul Newman, "It all comes out in the wash" = the scene with the dirty rug Joanne tells Paul he has to clean, "Richard Brooks directed 'too'" = Brooks directed "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" the same year, which also deals with a Southern family ruled by a larger than life patriarch living in the same house and which also starred Newman. Not quite sure how clue #2 fits, but I'm going with it anyway.
Seems a little too straightforward, but ill guess Sweet Bird of Youth.
As much as I want John's choice to be correct, if this release marks the first appearance in TT's collection by the Composer, then it can't be The Long Hot Summer, which was scored by the multi-entry Alex North (Bite the Bullet, Désirée, The Sound and the Fury, and Pony Soldier). If my guess is correct, this would mark the first appearance by composer Cyril J. Mockridge in TT's collection.
Not sure I can fit the rest of the clues, although Leo McCarey wrote and directed the other Woodward/Newman co-starrer from '58, just as Brooks did for many - if not most - of his films.
I'm guessing: Rally 'Round the Flag Boys from Fox.
The Ox-Bow Incident ?
Bruce you have not commented on EXODUS.
I have the Blu Ray LONG HOT SUMMER from Italy and it is gorgeous!
