I don't recall reading in the rules that that was allowed. ;)

It would be and is.

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.


Again an excellent suggestion. Newman, Woodward, Fox, a new composer. With regret, this isn't the title Rock.

Sorry John, life intervened as it sometimes can. I checked all your answers using my phone but hate typing on the blasted thing. Anyway on with the show.

Is it One, Two, Three?


Who wouldn't want a little Wilder? The "two" is not from this Billy classic. "Nobody's perfect!"

The Ox-Bow Incident ?


Will this happen? I haven't a clue. This isn't it however.

My random guess for the day, Sweet Bird of Youth (1962). It's MGM, written by Richard Brooks (who was a director too), Geraldine Page plays Alexandra De Lago which sounds Italian to my ears.


This is and appears outright as the obvious choice. Do keep remembering the latter portion of Clue #1. There is more there than the Germans. That said, this uses an altogether different take on "two". Think about it. As for the film, no Neil. My regrets.

Lord Jim

 

Lavi is Israeli, but appeared in how many Italian movies?

The rest of the clues are reaches(like my GI ration spaghetti sauce)


Lord Jim (1965) is a big unknown. Elements, condition, I do long to see it. The wait may take forever. Again, no deal.

That first clue, talk of Joanne Woodward had me thinking of multiple personalities, but since Three Faces of Eve has just been released, I'll take a wild stab for Sybil. Unseen by me, I can only speculate as to how it fits in with the clues. It features Woodward, and scored by Oscar Winner Leonard Rosenman, I don't believe he has any other TT credits.

Yeah, it's a TV movie, but a well regarded one, is it beneath Twilight Time to release it? According to IMDB, MGM/UA holds the video rights.


Sybil (1976) is a no.

It has to be Two For the Road. Am I right? <_< :P


Fox should be releasing this next year. Another classic bites the dust. ;)

Is it Paris Blues?

 

Duke Ellington is the composer.  Should be new to TT.

 

Co-stars Joanne Woodward.  The tie-in to The Fugitive Kind.

 

Paul Newman is the Method Actor and the spagetti sauce.

 

Richard Brooks directed "TWO"----Sydney Potier in The Blackboard Jungle and Newman in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.

 

Also:  Paris Blues was a UA release.


This is the guess of the day and a holy grail to Duke Ellington fans. With hesitation, I say no.

Could it be The Brothers Karamazov (1958)?


"Please sir, can I have another?" My Brooks clue was a commonality not a direct link to the man as THE director. But since you have most the films listed, what "two" stand out? What do they have in common? If anything. Like the others, The Brothers Karamazov (1958) is a no.

Okay, there's one for today:  The Defiant Ones

 

Clue 1:  "The Fugitive Kind"

Clue 2:  Sydney Poitier sings unassisted, "walking the line" referring to the character's feelings toward the other

Clue 3:  Richard Brooks directed Sydney Poitier "too" in two films.


You have much of it laid out. Tweak it and bring it back around. As for this most classic of pairings, I shake my head yet again.

I'm going to build on that, Bibi Andersson was in Quintet with Paul Newman,and with Poitier in my guess-

 

Duel At Diablo (1965)


A wise and sound pick Hasslein. A no once more. All these no answers may kill me.

THE MIRACLE WORKER


No Ken. But it wouldn't blow my mind to see it. Sooner rather than later.

Okay.

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.”

 

Clue #4: Franciosa, Forsythe, Parks. Who’s on first? Or is it second?

The question chosen was asked by seangood79.
 

Can this film be seen as a star making role for an actor or director?


Stardom preceded most everyone in the film. Now the director was fresh off his signature turn.

Here are yesterday’s unanswered questions. Feel free to ask again.

 

sleroi:

 

“Does the story take place outside of the United States?”

 

Steve…O:

“Disappointed that this isn't Long Hot Summer which would be a great TT title.

 

Today's question:  Exclusive of food endorsements, did any of the principal performers find substantial success outside of acting?”

 

SWIFF:

“What's the movie rated?”
