Okay Mr. Arbo Barbo Smarty Pants - Name that Movie!
Please, please, please - Someone else NAME THAT MOVIE! Up in the sidebar now, with audio track in place. Good luck.
Celine, Julie and Arbogast go Boating?
"Whisky Galore"? (clueless Gloria)
Jonathan - Are you sure YOU know what this movie is? I swear, these are the most obscure films from my perspective you could have chosen. Maybe if you picked a girly film, Arbo wouldn't get it.
Peter, so close except that it's nowhere near right. I've never seen Celine, Julie and Arbogast go Boating but I hear it's fantastic, the way they weave the tale of the shy librarian, the cabaret artist and the murderous blogger who keeps killing people in his mansion every day.
Gloria, no it's not Whiskey Galore BUT they are both movies, so you're kind of close.
Marilyn, of course I know what it is. It's ... ah, you almost got me. Anyway, Interiors and Hannah and Her Sisters aren't exactly tough guy films or anything. But no more Allen, Arbo knows his work too well. I don't know of course what Arbo specifically knows but I assume the next several I have chosen will be lost on him. Mwahahahahaha!!!!!
Kenneth Anger's Fireworks?...just kidding...
Well you may have been kidding but later the sailors do hold one of them down while they beat him (after showing off their muscles of course).Okay they don't actually do that, I just wanted someone to know I've actually seen Fireworks.
It's been years since I've seen it, but...The 49th Parallel?
Nope, sorry, not The 49th Parallel.
Pursuit of the Graf Spee?
No, Bill, but I feel like I should give something for making such a great guess. So that's twice now that a Powell film has been guessed. It is not a Powell film, just so everyone knows.
Blast! The silors suggest me a British war movie, but that sailor with the cigar is telling me that it is not a serious, jingo vindication of the eternal stiff-upper-lipness, but rather something with a touch of comedy, and post WW2, and possibly post-Suez as well.So I'm sure it is not "In Which We Serve", and, on the other hand, not "A Touch Of Larceny" into which this scene would fit wonderfully.
No, Bill, but I feel like I should give something for making such a great guess.I think you should give me a DVD.
Gloria I like the way you worked through that logically. Sorry you didn't think of the movie though.
Bill - I'm thinking, no.
Brian, that would be...Correct!Second point for Brian. Finally, let's get some competition going. Now remember Brian, next Saturday, 11:00 a.m. EST. Don't miss it! You could move up to three. Or Bill could get one. It could happen.
Aaah! I happen to love Margaret Rutherford, and precisely I became acquainted with her work, precisely, through a TV season of her Miss Marple films!But then it was like ages ago (local TVs seldom broadcast B&W films nowadays), so I certainly didn't remember the film to the point of that particular scene
My youngest loves Miss Marple (or as she calls her, "Miss Marbles") and this one, and Murder at the Gallop, are her two favorites.
Woo! Glad my guess was right. Like Gloria, it didn't look serious to me-- something about the light and the actors suggested British comedy. And knowing your love of those Rutherford movies, I took a stab in the dark. Thanks for the point!
It was a damn good guess Brian. But everyone still has a lot of catching up to do if they're going to beat Arbogast. He's like the Muhammed Ali of Name That Movie.
My youngest loves Miss Marple (or as she calls her, "Miss Marbles")Just when I think that girl has played her last Ace, bang!Actually, British movies of the first half of the 20th century are pretty easy to type out. Watching this, I knew it was post-war and the disc handled by a major studio... not enough early British movies are that clear. I gave the Miss Marbles box set to my Mom a couple of Christmases ago. Murder was always big in the Arbogast house.
The youngest always has a zinger at the ready. And the movie is definitely clear, no grain, evenly lit - the hallmark of sixties era black and white. And I mentioned the little ones love of Miss Marbles enough times that I figured someone might be able to connect the dots. One things for sure, everyone will eventually know my entire DVD collection when this game is over.
Okay, no more excluding-me-bonus-rounds because I want to win!
You know I wasn't excluding you right? It was a joke. If you knew it you should have guessed. I just meant "I want to see more competition" because you're such a goddamn terminator with this game.
