Common Locations Trivia Questions

1. One of the few scenes in "Bridesmaids" (2011) actually takes place at the place Annie works. What kind of store did she work in?

From Quiz
Movies Filmed in Wisconsin

Answer: jewelry store

Annie worked at Cholodecki's jewelry store. The store is important to the plot because Annie is fired from her job after arguing with a teenage customer (played by the daughter of Peter Frampton). The jewelry store filming took place on Mitchell Street in Milwaukee, on the 1000 block next to the Garden of Eden restaurant. Personal disclosure: my first job in politics was on that same block back in 1982, right across the street. Annie's apartment was located at 2501 South Kinnickinnick, which is right in the heart of Bayview, near KK and Homer. It is located about a block from the Bayview public library, and right across the street from the Avalon Theater. "Bridesmaids" tells the story of Annie Walker (Kristin Wiig) and her best friend Lillian (Maya Rudolph), who is getting married. Very little of the film was actually shot in Milwaukee, with Annie's Bay View apartment and the jewelry store on Mitchell Street the major exceptions. Most of the film was done in Los Angeles.

From Quiz White House Cinematic Intrigue

Answer: Absolute Power

Knowing that billionaire Walter Sullivan (EG Marshall) is away, Luther (Eastwood), a thief, breaks into his home with the aim of a big score. He is interrupted when Sullivan's good friend, a drunken President Alan Richmond (Gene Hackman), arrives with Sullivan's wife. The President, unaware that Luther is hiding and observing him from behind a one-way mirror, becomes sexually violent with Mrs. Sullivan. She stabs him in the arm with a letter opener and raises it again but, before she can act, is gunned down by the Secret Service. Luther manages to get away, but not before he is spotted, at the last moment, by the Secret Service. A cover-up is then put in place by the White House, framing the unknown burglar for the murder. Luther, who still managed to steal a small fortune, does have one ace up his sleeve...he also managed to steal the incriminating letter opener. The problem he has is how to make use of it. Despite its all-star cast, which also included Ed Harris, Judy Davis, Scott Glenn, and Dennis Haysbert, the film had limited success at the box office. This question was fenced by Phoenix Rising's pollucci19.

5. In "The Aristocats" (1970), the notary insisted on taking the stairs with the words "That birdcage? Poppycock. Elevators are for old people". What was the notary's first name?

From Quiz Movie Stairs

Answer: Georges

This animated movie was set in Paris in 1910. Madame Adelaide Bonfamille, a retired opera diva who adored her cats, decided to alter her last will and testament. She wanted that all of her belongings should go to her white cat Duchess and the three kittens: Marie, Toulouse and Berlioz. So Madame invited the notary Georges Hautecour. When Edgar the butler suggested the notary take the elevator, he replied with the aforesaid quote. But Georges seemed to have forgotten he just commented on his arthritis with the words "Not so spry as I was when I was 80, eh?". When Madame dictated her last will to Georges, Edgar listened in and he decided to get rid of the cats, hoping to be Madame's sole heir. So he "catnapped" them and left them outside Paris. But they met a ginger alley cat who introduced himself as "Abraham Delacey, Giuseppe Casey, Thomas O'Malley the Alley Cat". Now you know where the red herrings stem from. (Herrings and cats? A combination that goes well for the cats but not for the fish). Charles Lane voiced the notary Georges Hautecour, and Hermione Baddeley delivered the lines spoken by Madame. But the true protagonists were of course the cats: Duchess (voiced by Eva Gabor), O'Malley (spoken by Phil Harris), Marie (voice part by Liz English), Toulouse (spoken by Gary Dubin) and Berlioz (lines delivered by Dean Clark).

It concludes with the bad guys overturning their car before plowing into a gas station, which explodes in a massive fireball. Other filming locations include Grace Cathedral Episcopal Church, Bullitt's apartment on Taylor Street, the Kennedy Hotel and the San Francisco Police Department.

Reception for the film was overwhelmingly positive. "District 9" was later nominated for four Oscars including Best Picture, though it lost to "The Hurt Locker".
