    Hi Kids

    I don't think we've played this one before. Movies with numbers in the title.

    1,2,3. A movie from 1961 starring James Cagney. It was his last film for 20 years.
    Then he made another one which really was the last.

    High Noon. As you know, our rules are always pretty flexible. This pic qualifies since
    noon is 12:00 o'clock. The corresponding film would be Midnight Lace which
    starred Doris Day and Rex Harrison. So far as I can recall, Doris did not sing in
    this one.

    Nine To Five starring Dolly Parton and her entourage.

    The Ten Commandments. Produced and directed by Cecil B. DeMille. A remake
    of his silent film on the same subject.

    Good list, Patti. I'd forgotten that Fannie Flagg was in Five Easy Pieces.

    A Space Odyssey 2001 (which was actually made in 1968).

    The 39 Steps (Another film that was remade).

    Ten Little Indians

    12 O'Clock High

    The Third Man (The theme music played by Anton Karas on a zither became a best
    selling recording in England and the US.)

    I didn't even know Fannie Flagg was in Five Easy Pieces until I looked up who all was in it before I posted. Now I have to look for clips of the movie on YouTube to see who she played.

    I don't think I knew about her until recently when I read two of her books. Oh, she was in Candid Camera. That's all I knew about her. I just looked it up, and her given name was Patricia Neal.

    Hi GB, I saw the two "7" movies. Can't beat the first one for acrobatic dancing. Never
    did see 12 O'Clock High.

    The Magnificent Seven, I used to know the names of the actors, but not any more.
    The score by Elmer Bernstein is terrific. This movie has also been remade.

    Four Jills in a Jeep. WWII movie. Saw it on TV when I was a teen.
    Two Mules For Sister Sara

    100 Men And A Girl The men were the orchestra. The girl was Deanna Durbin. The
    movie was a big success, and is said to have saved Universal Studios from bankruptcy.
    Rocky II, III, VI, V.

    Three Little Girls in Blue, 1940s musical. One of the girls is the marvelous June Haver.

    Three On A Match, a 1932 movie with several 30's stars including Humphrey Bogart,
    Bette Davis, and Clara Blandick. The last name is that of an actress who was not so famous
    as Bogart or Davis, yet in another way immortal. She played Auntie Em.

    Three Men and A Baby.
    Winchester 73, I saw this one back in the 50s. A western with Jimmy Stewart.

    Oceans 11, from 1960 and 40 years later.
    Never saw either one. Didn't think much of that ratpack gang although Dean
    Martin had a great voice. Sinatra's voice was dry and raspy, but his fans didn't care.

    The 7 Faces of Dr Lao. Didn't see this one either, but I think Tony Randall played
    all the faces.
