Wrapping up Movie Trivia

Here's the answers to #5:

1) “It might not by any chance be Mr. Dallas who wishes to remarry, is it? Well, tell him to just keep the check coming to the same address each month, or else I might get a lawyer myself and bring in the name of that highfalutin’ widow!”

This came from Stella Dallas (1937). And yes, there was a clue to help, since this movie is largely forgotten today.

2) Man: “I love you. You... you complete me. And I just...”
Woman: “Shut up, just shut up. You had me at ‘hello.’”

This came from Jerry Maguire (1996).

3) Man #1: "I am not the enemy."
Man #2: "Then who are you?"

This came from Michael Clayton (2007).

4) “The wind’s blowing me in another direction, and there ain’t no use arguing with the wind.”

This one came from Carmen Jones (1954).

The link, of course, is that the movie is a character's full name.

Donna got her numbers mixed up and somehow missed #1, but she did have two correct answers and now has 90 points. We seem to have lost Patricia.

Keep reading for the final results....

Bonus question: (50 points)He is the only actor to have won an Oscar (supporting category) for playing a character named Oscar. He is the late Edmond O'Brien. The movie was The Barefoot Contessa (1954).

Donna, the only one who responded, is our 1st place winner. Patricia will take second place. For the record, Donna, a real movie buff, only missed #4 and earned 175 points. She finished with a whopping 265 points. Congratulations, ladies!!! And enjoy the Oscars!

Yay me! I win! But it would have been more fun if Patricia and Reon and others had joined in this time. But a win's a win!

Looking forward to receiving my prize, Bettye! Let me know if you need my address.

What did you think of the Oscars? So happy for Mo'Nique, though I haven't seen the movie.

Congrats, Donna! Yes, Unfortunately a number of folks emailed me that they didn't quite understand how the game works. I think that if I do the game again I'll probably limit it to one lightning round of maybe 20 quotes instead of spreading it out (Patricia informs me she got caught up with her son's athletic activities and missed the last rounds). But since I haven't turned in a synopsis for my next book yet (really late this year), I can safely say I won't have a book out by next April/May anyway!

Enjoy your prize.
