It's Bonus Round Time



The first one today went fast. Let's see how fast the second one goes. Arbo's still at nine as Peter Nellhaus swooped in to get the first one today, Fury, directed by Fritz Lang. Can Nellhaus repeat? Will Arbo win it all? Let's see. Good luck.

*****UPDATE TO CLUE NUMBER ONE*****

The director of this film directed another film in the forties that has the same title as a Steely Dan song as well as the title of a 90's album by an internationally famous and legendary singer/songwriter. That singer/songwriter is Bob Dylan. His nineties album has the same title as the Steely Dan song from the eighties, which is the same title as another movie directed by this director.

*****CLUE NUMBER TWO*****

The lead actress in the movie only has one line in the whole movie. Just one. At the end.

In 1947, the actress in this clip was in Out of the Past. The lead actor in the movie featured today did a movie in 1947 called Out of the Blue.

Hold That Ghost?

No.

Ah man, you deleted your double comment forcing me to delete my joke references to it. Thanks a lot.

My timing is off today. OB-viously.

Jonathan Lapper said...

Here we go aGYN.

You have the right decade though, although I think anyone with an inkling of knowledge of classic film can tell that clip is from the forties so that probably doesn't help much.

Ghost and Mrs. Muir?

Jonathan Lapper said...

No, sorry Peter, not that one.

Arboghost! said...

It's not 40s, but could it be Jamaica Inn?

Jonathan Lapper said...

It could also be Holiday Inn, but it's not. And it would be a stretch to think it's Inn of the Sixth Happiness.

I'm sorry, I meant The Inn of the Six6h Happiness.

Keep trying.

The Uninvited?

Peter Nellhaus said...

Oops. That was me. Not Anon.
The Uninvited?

Jonathan Lapper said...

Check out the new clues. And Name That Movie already!

Black Friday?

Peter Nellhaus said...

Time out of Mind.

Arboghost! said...

The Spiral Staircase!

Jonathan Lapper said...

Peter, Time out of Mind is the song and the album by Dylan. But remember, it was not the title of this movie but of another movie by the same director. Robert Siodmak directed Time Out of Mind and The Spiral Staircase, which Arbogast correctly guessed.

Congrats to Arbogast.
