---------------------------------------1. Which actors do you always (or did you always) mix-up?
Ann Sothern and Joan Blondell
2. Gidget or Beach Party?
Gidget (And, I'm sorry but Cliff Robertson is NOT a creeper in that movie. End of discussion.)
3. Favorite Movie Outfit?
Audrey Hepburn's black lace outfit in How to Steal a Million
4. If you could be ANY character in ANY movie...who would you choose?
Tough one! Probably Sylvia Koscina's role in Hot Enough For June. She ends up with Dirk Bogarde, and plus she has my ultimate dream job: SPY! So, she's a spy for the wrong side, but I'm figuring a few months with Dirk (aka Nicholas Whistler) in England would convince me to become a double agent. Also, I really would like to look like her, so that helps.
5. If you could marry ANY character in ANY movie...who would you choose? (Excluding any Dana Andrews' characters. Seriously. ;-D - Millie)
Robert Gold (Dirk Bogarde) in Darling, Paul Verrall (William Holden) in Born Yesterday or Walt Dreiser (sorry, Millie.. Dana Andrews) in My Foolish Heart.
6. If you could live in ANY movie...which would you choose?
7. Black & White movies you wish were in Technicolor, or vice-versa?
I wish that The Barkleys of Broadway was in black and white (actually, I usually watch it with the color turned off on my tv)
8. Favorite Movie Soundtrack?
Dr. Zhivago hands down! Runners up are The Servant and Splendor in the Grass.
9. Favorite Movie Dance Sequence?
Let's Face the Music and Dance in Follow the Fleet
10. Coolest Movie Star? (Cough, cough, BOBBY DARIN, cough, cough -Millie)
Bobby was REALLY cool but I think Frank Sinatra was the end.
11. Sophia or Gina (Oh, how Kate enjoys replaying Gina's sad defeat OVER AND OVER! -Millie)
muahahahahaha. No, really I love them both SO much, it's really almost a tie. But Sophia squeaks by on this one :)
12. "Isn't It Romantic" in most Billy Wilder films, or "Red River Valley" in most John Ford films?
Okay, why did I come up with this question when I can't answer it? I LOVE THEM BOTH!!
(Henry Fonda singing Red River Valley in The Grapes of Wrath is nowhere to be found on the internet. I will fix this ASAP!)
13. If you could re-cast ANY role in ANY movie, what would it be?
Tie between recasting Gary Cooper as Jefferson Smith in Mr. Smith Goes to Washington and recasting William Holden as Leonard Vole in Witness for the Prosecution. (Oh, and I'd also like to replace Humphrey Bogart in Sabrina and Gary Cooper in Love in the Afternoon with Cary Grant.)
(geez, you'd never know that I know how to use photoshop...)
14. Favorite movie character with your first name?
Rita Tushingham's character in Girl with Green Eyes
Rita Tushingham's character in Girl with Green Eyes
15.One movie that should NEVER be remade? (under THE THREAT OF A SLOW, PAINFUL DEATH!)
Any Hitchcock, John Ford or David Lean films. Period.
16. Actor or Actress who you would love to be best friends with?
Barbara Stanwyck, Miriam Hopkins and Julie Christie seem like they'd be awesome friends!
17. Are you an Oscar or a Felix?
Oscar. TOTALLY an Oscar.
18. Actor/Actress you originally hated and now love?
Well, like not love... but Glenn Ford
19.Actor/Actress you originally loved and now don't like? I'm pleading the fifth on this one.. I know if I answered it, it would be the ONLY thing people would comment on :-\
20. Favorite performance that was looked over by Oscar? (Not to be confused with the aforementioned Oscar of Felix fame.)
Dana Andrews in Best Years of Our Lives!!
21. Bewitched or I Dream of Jeannie?
Love them both, but Jeannie!
22. Hannibal Heyes or Kid Curry? (Hint for those who don't know who they are: pick Hannibal Heyes.)
23. Favorite Style Icon: Fred Astaire or Cary Grant?
Toughie!! I'll go with Fred.
24. Single most favorite movie scene EVER?
AGHHH I can't believe I helped make this survey and am having trouble answering half the questions!!! I really like the scene in Any Wednesday when Jane Fonda says she wants to have lots of kids and have them gather round and make a cake (it's just so randomly hilarious!), and I love the scene with the mismatched shoes in Sunday in New York. AND I can't leave out the scene in Hot Enough for June when Dirk Bogarde asks if he can come back and see that roller process again.
25. Movie you really "should" see, but have subconsciously avoiding for who knows what reason?
The Night Porter. I really really want to see it, but I've heard it's a tad bit too graphic for my tastes.
26. Movie quote you find yourself most often repeating in real life?
"I've got the most scathingly brilliant idea" from The Trouble with Angels. I've been saying this at least once a day like my whole entire life. Me & my mom also quote the line from Beauty and the Beast "I've been thinking... a dangerous past time, I know". And lately I've been randomly quoting the line at the end of Young and Innocent "What did I do with the belt? *evil laugh* (I'm so weird.)
27. 50's Westerns or 60's Spies? (I can't even answer this myself...but you have to! MWAHAHAHA! - Millie)
Spies will always win over cowboys, and the 60's will always beat the 50's, so there you have your answer.
28. Favorite splashy, colorful, obnoxious 50's musical?
Millie put this question in just because she KNOWS how I detest splashy, colorful, obnoxious 50's musicals. The Bandwagon isn't remotely obnoxious, but does that count?
29. Favorite film setting (example: Rome, Paris, Seattle, Siberia, Chile, Sahara Desert, etc)
England and Italy
30. If you could own the entire wardrobe of any film, which would it be?
Audrey's in How to Steal a Million or Gina Lollobrigida's in Come September.
31. Carol Burnette or Lucille Ball?
I haven't seen much of either, but I'll go with Lucille Ball I guess.
32. Favorite Voice. Ever. Period?
AGHHHHH I CANNOT PICK JUST ONE. I'm going to do a list eventually, but I'll just name my top few. Dirk (OBVIOUSLY), Richard Burton, Richard Widmark, Dana Andrews and Ronald Colman. (You can listen to Dirk talk-singing here)
33. Favorite movie that takes place in your home-state?
Well there are NO movies that I like about New Jersey, so instead I'll go with my favorite movie star from the garden (seriously, garden??) state: Frank Sinatra. See picture in question #10.
34. Which actors would you want for relatives? (Mother, Father, Grandma, Crazy Aunt, annoying cousin, older brother, etc...)
Mother: Glynis Johns in Mary Poppins or Spring Byington in You Can't Take it With You. Father: Spencer Tracy in Inherit the Wind (I know, he's not playing a dad in that movie, but I don't think that matters?) or Hugh Griffith in How to Steal a Million or Alastair Sim in Stage Fright. So like a cross between an iconic lawyer, an art forger and a wine smuggler? Grandmother: Older Lauren Bacall (me and Millie are cousins.) Grandfather: Walter Brennan in The Gnome Mobile. Crazy Aunt: Elsa Lanchester in Bell Book and Candle. Older Brother: Jeffrey Lynn (and then I can be Nicola's sister in law! ;-D)
