Was the screenplay based on material from another medium?
The Key (1958)
Holden, Loren, Carol Reed walked the (music) line with Oliver? and fought with Brando (Mutiny on the Bounty)... water-wash..
You mean The Secret of Santa Vittoria (1969) with Anthony Quinn and Anna Magnani? It lines up with much of the clues. It is MGM/UA. Ernest Gold would be a first. This smells of TT. It wouldn't shock me to see it. Eventually.
NICE. Your reasoning is right and I love the movie. This isn't it though. Knowing Columbia and prior TT releases, who's to say in 6 months or a year...
My question for the day, (I don't expect it to get answered) so Brando and Magnani are two of the answers to the clue, but neither are in the film? Rules say not to ask about actors in film, I'm asking about actors not in the film.
Until Clue #2, I thought I had a guess that made reasonably good sense. On the slim chance that it might still be valid, I'm going to run with it anyway, even though I've never seen this picture so I'm not quite sure how the second tip might fit.
[*]"The Method" = the bane of Director Peter Ustinov, who admonished a bit performer playing too distractingly in the moment with "Don't just do something, stand there!"
[*]"An Italian muse" = Star Sophia Loren, wife of Producer Carlo Ponti, who featured her in many of his films, including this one.
[*]"Spaghetti sauce" = Newman's Own, as in the one and only Paul Leonard N.
[*]"It all comes out in the wash" = How the titular character got her start, working as a laundress in a famous Paris brothel.
[*]"Poor Marni Nixon…he “walked the line" = Newman - or another male character - singing undubbed?
Released in 1965, and last seen from MGM/UA in the late 90s on VHS...Lady L.
Yes, I edited it after initially posting my guess. I wanted to get the guess up quickly, just in case someone beat me to the punch!
Moot effort to add the rest, since my guess was wrong!
Two of your points are absolutely spot-on. You're scarring me Rock. Am I losing my touch? Thankfully it is not Lady L (1965).
My question for the day: "Which two?"
Is it Modesty Blaise (1966)?
Hmmm..... A bang-up choice. Fox, Vitti, an unused composer, regardless... nope.
I can't match up all of the clues, but I'll take a guess - On the Beach (1959).
It has a method actor (Anthony Perkins), an Italian cinematographer (Giuseppe Rotunno), poor Marni Nixon was married to composer Ernest Gold (she says that he was repeatedly unfaithful to her while they were married), and lead actor Gregory Peck starred in I Walk the Line (1970).
It is a United Artists production which was released on DVD by MGM and Gold's score was nominated for an Academy Award, so it's a title which fits TT's model.
Even if not...where is this one?
(Based on my assumption of "spaghetti sauce", war movies are included because of the GI ration...as long as it is a movie set after 1943)
Brilliant analysis Richard. If only it were true.
Damn! Now I have a much better guess than the one I put forth today. Can't wait for midnight to roll around.
Using the clues and process of elimination through previous guesses in this thread (and prodded by wishful thinking), I'm thinking it might be Five Miles to Midnight (1962)?
I'm thinking the "Italian muse" is a red herring. I'm looking for concubinage of actresses by Italian directors...(obviously I don't mean it literally)
The 2nd clue has got me really puzzled but I'll take a guess anyway. How to Murder Your Wife(1965).
Another friendly reminder. Remember the 1 and 1 rule.
It sure sounds like BUONA SERA MRS CAMPBELL but thats a UA film...and you said it was a Sony....hmmmm
