Name the Actor/Actress Quiz

Postby baggygreenmania » Wed Feb 01, 2017 11:15 pm

A new movie quiz. You are given a brief bio of a well known actor/actress and you have to name the person. The person can be of any nationality.
Same quiz rules apply here.

British actor 1907-1989. Shakespearan trained. Most famous film roles include Spartacus, Shoes of the Fisherman, Khartoum and a Hollywood classic in which he co starred with Joan Fontaine.

Good for you Mick for kicking off the new quiz. His most famous film is Rebecca while other main films were Battle of Britain, Boys from Brazil, Marathon Man... no Lawrence of Arabia.

Ok here is one everyone should get.

Bio: Actor. One of the real stars of Hollywood... specialised in playing hard bitten private detectives. Probably his most recognised role was as an ex-pat American niteclub owner for which he received an Best Actor Academy Award nomination.

Bio: actress. One of Hollywoods greatest stars for at least three decades. Made every part she played look easy. As she was a consumate professional and demanded perfection she gained a reputation for being hard to get along with. She was tiny in size, with big,wide eyes and spoke with a Boston accent.

Ok, here's an easy one.

Guess the guy - fine actor, famour for his gangster roles though he also played interesting roles in psychological films.

Mainly black & white era.

No, not Cagney though that's a pretty good guess.

Ok, here's a clue.

He had a passion for the fine arts, and had built an extensive art collection but had to sell it off as settlement during his divorce.

raja. with respect that is a fairly obscure clue.. you would have to have followed his personal life to know that. Perhaps a clue on his professional life may be more helpful. One of his psychological films for instance. I will have another guess anyway. Edward G Robinson?

I have drawn up a set of rules re the quizzes over on the other thread. Tell me if you think we should implement them.

Actor: Earned Oscar nominations for two psychological thrillers..one in 1976 the other 1991. The second was a remake of a 50s film noir classic. It was a 1980 movie that won him his only Oscar for Best Actor.

Someone going to try to guess this? I had to bring it down as it gets lost with the other posts.

Clue: his name derives from the old country.

For example, Woman in the Window (1944). I quite liked the film.

Mike the forum administrator has asked me to step in as default quizmaster while you are away.

actor: Born 1942. Announced himself in a cult blockbuster which spawned several sequels. But his signiture movies were a popular franchise about a mystery- seeking adventurer.

I am guessing a young Drew Barrymore was in Firestarter? The others I do not have a clue about.

Mike just a word. You left a thread without calling OPEN FLOOR. I had to step in as "default quizmaster". We need the quiz to keep humming along. I am sure you understand.

Correct. She was a cameo in Whip It as she was producer and director, but the new series "Santa Clarita Diet" she plays a zombie mum, not a bad series. Sorry about the open floor, but my first response was sent to moderators for a few hours.

I must have seen Firestarter 20 years ago. Odd remembering Drew that far back.

actor: Welsh born. Has a huge body of work from a haunted ventriloquist, a pysycopath, a grizzlie-battling millionaire to a oh so proper butler in a Brit period film.

I think her last name is Nermala or Nirmala. Never seen any of her work, myself.
