Farewell My Lovely


Farewell, My Lovely certainly fits the clue perfectly - 1975 about the 40's

Does TT have any deal going with ITC?
Yes, these strange things happen all the time - PT Anderson, Magnolia

Mischief.  Released in 1985, set in 1956.


Mischief also fits the clue accurately... and is from Fox...

Fun side note, both my boss John Badham and Mischief director Mel Damski have directed many episodes of Psych.

Okay, so we can't ask about the "lead actor, genre or year of release"...what about the Director...or Cinematographer...or since this is Twilight Time after all, the Composer?
 
This is merely a request for clarification, not a question. ;)


My feeling is - ask whatever you want. We're only ANSWERING one per day, and I'm likely to choose the most interesting question that will allow me to give out the least helpful answer.

So far we have 3 films suggested that legally fit the clue. The correct answer may be one of the three, and it may not...

La Bamba Released 87, about the 50's - From Columbia
Farewell My Lovely, Released 75 about the 40s - From ITC (British Production)
Mischief, Released 85, about the 50's - From Fox.

Was it an original screenplay, or adapted from another medium?

No, but Shout does. So, there's a hope after all.

Was the film's composer usually seen sporting a beard around the time the film was made and released?

Wild guess: My Favorite Year

 

EDIT: Fits the 3 decade profile, but I think it's with Warners.

My guess:
 
24 Hour Party People


Partly works, But the film spans the 70's to the 90's and was released in 02, so it doesn't fit the clue properly.

Nope

Another decade spanner, I believe this one goes from like the 20s or 30s all the way through the 90's! Great film, personal favorite - but which studio is this with for video? I remember my laserdisc was New Line but this is a Castle Rock - I do think my DVD was MGM, so it could work for studio, but alas it doesn't fit the clue.

You answered it yourself - Fits the clue but earlier MGM titles are with Warners now...

Nope.

Nope.

 

Since I 'correctly' invalidated my own guess, can I have it back?

 

Oops, that was another question... :wacko:

UPDATE

 

Someone guessed the title.  However, the person that guessed the title made three guesses

in the same day which is against the rules.

 

So, I am not announcing the winner's name but the correct title is....

 

LaBamba

 

We will hold the second of three games within the next few days.  Hopefully members will

be more respectful to the rules of the game.

 

In the future, any person that guesses more than once will have their posts deleted and their

answer will not be acknowledged.

 

Thanks for participating everyone.  My utmost thanks to Ted for running this segment of the game.
