    Movie titles containing someone's name. There is no entry fee, no need
    to qualify, and you do not even have to go to the movies. The only
    requirement is that you know someone who has seen a movie. But if
    you don't you can still play provided you own your own necktie or a
    pair of socks.

    If you like you can add vital information to the title such as the name of
    the Director, the name of the star (or the star's spouse) or who was with
    you when you saw the movie.

    Here are some examples:
    Shane, Jean Arthur played the wife in the film. Unusual casting as Arthur
    was known for her three Frank Capra films and screwball comedies. She
    was very similar to Garbo with her demand for privacy and her unwillingness
    to be interviewed. Shane was her last film. Read her biography a year or
    two ago.

    Hello, Dolly!
    Julius Caesar
    King Solomon's Mines
    Dr. Zhivago
    All About Eve

    Very good, Kids. Some fun movies. Here are some more.

    Maisie, an MGM film from 1939 starring Ann Sothern. Subsequently
    nine more Maisie film were made including such titles as Maisie Was A
    Lady; Maisie Goes to Town; and Maisie Goes to Reno. All B movies
    with little about them that was enjoyable except for Sothern's
    charm and vivacious personality.

    Forrest Gump based on the novel boy Winston Groom. (Which name
    is more unusual?) The film was very popular and won 6 Oscars
    including Best Picture. I think the author's sequel Gump and Co.
    is better than the original.

    Lili, starred Leslie Carron who also starred in Gigi. Funny she never
    went on to make Fifi or Mimi.

    Nanook of the North
    Citizen Kane
    Thoroughly Modern Millie

    Cass Timberlane
    Ruggles of Red Gap
    The Perils of Pauline
    The Story of Louis Pasteur

    Hi Kids

    A couple of the above titles contain place names as well: Ruggles of Red Gap,
    Maisie Goes to Reno, Anna and the King of Siam. What if we modify our
    game to Movie Titles Containing a Place Name? For example:

    An American in Paris
    Ma and Pa Kettle in Waikiki
    The Kettles in the Ozarks

    Chicago, the musical
    San Francisco, the 1930s film starring Jeanette MacDonald, Clark
    Gable and the 1906 earthquake.

    Flying Down to Rio, another 30s gem and a milestone in film history. The
    first with Fred and Ginger.

    Very Good, GB. I'd forgotten all about that movie Moon Over Parador. I
    took my mother to see it many moons ago. She loved it. Wikipedia
    has a good article on it. The score was written by the same fellow who
    wrote the music for Dr. Zhivago. The films could hardly be more different.

    There were several "Road" pictures with Bob Hope and Bing Crosby,
    most of them made in the 1940s. Dorothy Lamour was in all of them.

    The Road to: Singapore, Morocco, Rio, Bali, etc. I think there were 7 in all.

    The Wizard of Oz.

    Bad Day at Black Rock
    Bataan ,WW II film. Kawinkydentally I just saw a documentary about
    the war in the SE Pacific. All shot in color film.

    Hey, GB. Got some good ones there. I have a vague recollection of
    Hollywood Knights. One of my friends was in it. She was a legal
    secretary by day and an actress at night. Saw her in several
    plays in Hollywood's little theaters (seating under 100; equity
    rules do not apply meaning the actors don't have to be paid).

    She was talented. Just lacked that essential ingreediment needed
    for big success: Luck! Fran Drescher and Michele Pfeiffer were
    also in it at the beginning of their careers. Anyhoo the film was
    strictly for teens. I think it was the first movie for Tony Danza.

    Thanks for the names of the other Road pix. Somewhere I read that
    another one was planned, but Bing died. Same year as Elvis.
    Two of our best baritones.

    OK, more movies.
    New York, New York
    The Hunchback of Notre Dame
    South Pacific

    The West Point Story
    Sunset Boulevard
    Breakfast at Tiffany's
    Jurassic Park

    Treasure of the Sierra Madre
    42nd Street
    The Guns of Navarone, Turns out Navarone is a real place. It is an
    island (also known as Leros) in the Aegean Sea off the coast of Greece.
