Sorry for this but I am having a bit of trouble understanding what exactly Question #4 wants us to do It's because of my limited English knowledge

Please bear with me here and clarify this - we have to pick a noun which is used only as a subject in that poem? That would help me distinguish between them.
I apologise and Thank you!

No, not as a subject, as a noun. Here's an example - the word "sunset" is usually used as a noun, since the definition of a noun is a person, place, or thing. However, in the poem, the word "sunset" is used as an adjective, not a noun. It describes the noun "gates." (Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand)

I didn't realize there would be any confusion on this, just tried to ask for what I thought would be the easiest part of speech to pick out.

Round 30 Monday

In my quest to both tie questions together AND bring up my favorite all-time actresses, this week I'm picking on the mesmerizing, delightful and unstoppable Miss Tallulah Bankhead (1902-1968). The following are about her. Well, sort of ...

1.) Tallulah was born to a political family (Senators and such) in Alabama. Very well-to-do. But that's not the question. Alabama has produced two noticeable musical acts, among many, too. Please tell me a member of either of the group(s) "Alabama" or "Drive-By-Truckers".
2.) While becoming a most worthy stage actress Bankhead made several films, the first of which was "Who Loved Him Best" when she was just 16 years old. It was directed by the very prolific (but hardly well-remembered) Dell Henderson. Besides the movie mentioned, please tell me another film directed by Henderson that came out in 1918.
3.) Tallulah's probable best known screen work came in her award-winning turn in Alfred Hitchcock's 1944 claustrophobic classic "Lifeboat", which boasted a script penned by the outstanding novelist John Steinbeck. In Salinas, California Steineck's birthplace/boyhood home still stands and is a popular tourist attraction there. If we were going to "The Steinbeck House" what might we choose as our entree off their luncheon menu? [Note: the menu changes weekly but a 'representative' bill of fare can be found online so anything mentioned there is fine]
4.) On the 1960's TV camp favorite series "Batman" many Hollywood legends showed up to have a little fun playing a villain. Bankhead had her turn hamming it up as 'Black Widow' in 1967. While there were only 37 episodes of the show, some 30 [main] villains were featured. Please select one ~ and, if you would, choose one who did not appear in any of the five recent "Batman" motion pictures (which still leaves a couple of dozen...).
5.) Yikes. In 1965, Tallulah Bankhead did a film called "Die! Die! My Darling!". Clearly, there weren't a lot of good parts for women of her age at the time . The movie DID make the list over on Amazon.com naming "Campy, Bitshy and BAD - The 25 Best Movies" (it came in at #23). Pick a film that was in the Top 10 on that list, OK?

That's it for today. This will close late Thursday/early Friday. If you get stuck, give me a holler.
Thus, and with all due respect to the grand Miss Bankhead, I'll bid you an honorable 'adieu'...

10 points ALL - Yay!

Well done, Gentlemen! [I hope you are both men ....gentle I know you are ]

45 points: Engadine, Gatsby, glamel, Howie, Jane, Lofthus, Maggie

40 points: bethfay and ren

**Now let's have some fun with the definitions of the random words you found - I had to share them!

Shoulder Surfing - To look over the shoulder(s) of a person with whom you are currently engaged in conversation to see if you can find someone 'better' to talk to.

Honeyed - Mesmerizing to look at. Luscious, Sweet tasting.

hoopajoo - Anything vague and potentially uncomfortable, often inserted into an orifice - like in *You were abducted by aliens? Did they stick a big metal hoopajoo up your [censored]?*

Troll Bait - a person who attracts trolls and responds to them unknowingly to their scheme; one who falls prey to the phenomenon of trolling in an irc room, forum, or internet voice chat room; a person, place, or website that trolls find a method of attack--especially naive, overly deceptible person.
Don't be troll bait or else you could find yourself kicked, devoiced, bounced, banned, or booted from a voice room, irc channel, website, or web forum by responding angrily to a troll who has shrewd skill in avoiding the radar.

toolgasm - a peaking point in the listening of music written by tool. At this point, the listener undergoes a sensation much like that of an orgasm, without the mess.

Backs - A place in line behind someone who is already in line.

Estrogen - Estrogen....simply enough....is God's curse on man.

Pancreas - the human organ used to store and digest pancakes.

Kinioned - to be messed over or misrepresented.

Jobby - a term used 2 discribe a poo poo, or someone that is being really annoying! [ this one has more than 20 definitions, all on the same 'theme' but differently expressed]

special k - Ketamine. Often obtained by breaking into animal hospitals, this liquid-state tranquilizer can be poured over a mirror, dried, and diced into a powder ready for rave-happy snorting.


I want to bid a warm "Welcome!" to Lofthus - he/she is a new user on FT Forums and in Trivia Rounds and I am glad he/she played my Round. Also I hope he/she will stick around.

Thanks everybody for playing.

Jane, please add 1 point for October to Mugaboo and Srini.

Apologies for the late arrival of the results. A glass or two of wine seemed like such a good idea at the time, though... And then I fell asleep.

The little girl who told him about Father Christmas, the boyscout, the black cat

For five points The man with the telescope, the little boy waiting for the firweorks, the old lady

None of the characters had names apart from the black cat who was the last character Plop encountered, and his name was Sirius.

For ten points
Jennifer Baxter, Perla Haney-Jardine, Jennifer Connolly, Pete Postlethwaite, Bill Buell

"Tallulah Bankhead"
*Whew! Talk about the final shakedown coming at the very end ! Great answers from all 11 who joined in!

1.) Tallulah was born to a political family (Senators and such) in Alabama. Very well-to-do. But that's not the question. Alabama has produced two noticeable musical acts, among many, too. Please tell me a member of either of the group(s) "Alabama" or "Drive-By-Truckers".

For 10 points:
Jeff Cook ('Alabama'), Patterson Hood and Shonna Tucker (both 'Drive-By-Truckers').
For 5 points:
Randy Owen and Teddy Gentry (both 'Alabama') (2 each), Jason Isbell ('Drive-By-Truckers') (4).

Others were Mark Herndon ('Alabama'), Mike Cooley and Brad Morgan (both 'Truckers').

2.) While becoming a most worthy stage actress Bankhead made several films, the first of which was "Who Loved Him Best" when she was just 16 years old. It was directed by the very prolific (but hardly well-remembered) Dell Henderson. Besides the movie mentioned, please tell me another film directed by Henderson that came out in 1918.

For 10 points:
My Wife, The Impostor, The Road to France.
For 5 points:
By Hook or Crook (2), The Golden Wall (3), Hitting the Trail (3).

3.) Tallulah's probable best known screen work came in her award-winning turn in Alfred Hitchcock's 1944 claustrophobic classic "Lifeboat", which boasted a script penned by the outstanding novelist John Steinbeck. In Salinas, California Steineck's birthplace/boyhood home still stands and is a popular tourist attraction there. If we were going to "The Steinbeck House" what might we choose as our entree off their luncheon menu? [Note: the menu changes weekly but a 'representative' bill of fare can be found online so anything mentioned there is fine]

For 10 points:
Spanish Squash, Mushroom Crust Quiche, Soup & Salad [<---a rather interesting (and valid) choice, that one, as it is an alternative to any entree, any day ].
For 5 points:
Chicken Piccata (2), Chef's Special Meatloaf [Which, to me, sounds a little scary ~ what do they do? Just grind up yesterday's leftovers and call it a 'Special' ] (2), Spinach Ricotta Quiche (4).

4.) On the 1960's TV camp favorite series "Batman" many Hollywood legends showed up to have a little fun playing a villain. Bankhead had her turn hamming it up as 'Black Widow' in 1967. While there were only 37 episodes of the show, some 30 [main] villains were featured. Please select one ~ and, if you would, choose one who did not appear in any of the five recent "Batman" motion pictures (which still leaves a couple of dozen...).

For 10 points:
Colonel Gumm (as played by Roger C. Carmel), The Bookworm (or Roddy McDowell), Lola Lasagne (or Ethel Merman), Zelda the Great AND Olga, Queen of the Cossacks (both played by Anne Baxter), The Mad Hatter (or David Wayne), Marsha Queen of Diamonds (or Carolyn Jones), The Puzzler (or Maurice Evans), Black Widow (our Tallulah - and I never said she couldn't be chosen ).
For 5 points:
Louie the Lilac (or Milton Berle) (2).

5.) Yikes. In 1965, Tallulah Bankhead did a film called "Die! Die! My Darling!". Clearly, there weren't a lot of good parts for women of her age at the time . The movie DID make the list over on Amazon.com naming "Campy, Bitshy and BAD - The 25 Best Movies" (it came in at #23). Pick a film that was in the Top 10 on that list, OK?

For 10 points:
"The Poseidon Adventure", "Mommie Dearest", "Best of Everything".
For 5 points:
"The Bad Seed" (2), "Valley of the Dolls" (2), "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?" (4).

The others were "Showgirls", "The Stepford Wives" (original), "Love Machine" and, I was shocked to see on the list, "The Birds"!

The Results!

glamel, Lofthus, MaggieG ....40 points!
cujimmy, denni19, Engadine, Howie72, JaneMarple, Mugaboo....35 points!
bethfay, ren33....30 points!

Well done, well done, well done to everyone . In a quest for a clever Howie observation (which, quite certainly, he is much better at than I) it would seem that, as you all are on your way to see Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? after a bite of spinach with some dude named Jason, I can only say 'gracias' and "drive safely!"...

A point to each glamel, Lofthus and MaggieG!!!
