Question 1 of 10
1. Mom, I got your answering machine again, and I don't need to look who's talking. Now, I'm nobody's fool, in fact I'm unbreakable and may be the last man standing, but I am feeling expendable. Would you hang up the phone, and call me back? This is your son - remember me? Hint


Question 2 of 10
2. Hi Mom! I know you're on the phone with someone else, but, it's about seven here, and the usual suspects are inseparable. But we are all consenting adults, even my American beauty, so when you remember me, give me call. Wait, do you know which son this is? Hint


Question 3 of 10
3. Hi Mom! Your answering machine picked up on the first ring, so I know you're there. I wanted to tell you that I was almost famous after I found that fool's gold, but then there was all that gossip! Call me back and I can tell you how to lose a guy in 10 days - that is if you remember who to call. Do you? Hint


Question 4 of 10
4. Hiya, Mom! I can tell you're busy, so I'll just leave a quick message. I know you said I should never love a stranger, but I have fallen in love with the proper stranger! Now the getaway is planned, but we are not going to stay at the towering inferno. Call me back. You do know who this is, right? Hint


Question 5 of 10
5. Mom, for the past 28 days I've been leaving you messages! I wanted to tell you about the lake house, and my premonition about the vanishing. It's a kind of practical magic, but you know what they say - hope floats. Call me, so I can bring you up to speed. Now, do you remember who I am? Hint


Question 6 of 10
6. I know you're on the phone Mother, but do you remember the Titans? I was the inside man who had fallen, but I was unstoppable, and still found glory. I'm out of time, so call me back. Now don't forget - who are you going to call? Hint


Question 7 of 10
7. Mom, I'm leaving this message because everyone says I love you. I just took the Darjeeling Limited to Cold Mountain, where I saw a black swan at Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium. Now, there are no strings attached to this message, so please return my call. Do you know who I am? Hint


Question 8 of 10
8. Mother, I wish I could talk to you instead of your answering machine! I had a bit of mad money, so I went looking for Mr. Goodbar in Manhattan. But, between the Manhattan murder mystery and the crimes of the heart, something's gotta give. Okay, I'm hanging up - you know who to call back, right? Hint


Question 9 of 10
9. I'm talking to your answering machine again, Mom, when I should be out chasing Amy or finding Forrester! But, I wanted to tell you that we bought a zoo, and all the pretty horses are in the green zone. Can you call me back? Do you know who to call back? Hint


Question 10 of 10
10. Well, Mom, your answering machine picked up, so you must be on the phone with someone else. I wanted to contact you, to let you know about my flightplan to Nim's Island. It's been a freaky Friday, and while I may be a maverick, I am also the accused. Call me please - if you can remember who I am. Can you? Hint

Answer: Steve McQueen

Steve McQueen had a rather rough childhood, including being separated from and returning to his mother several times. He was rebellious and angry, and did not get along well with any of his three stepfathers. He got involved in criminal activities at a young age, and in his early teens he was remanded to the California Junior Boys Republic, an institute for young miscreants. While at first he let his rebellious nature guide his actions, eventually he straightened out. He followed the same pattern after joining the Marines at the age of 17, and went on to earn an honorable discharge three years later.
After several appearances on television and film, he caught public attention in 1958 with his role on the television series "Wanted: Dead or Alive". The series lasted three years, and cemented McQueen's anti-hero image. He went on to make some memorable and popular films, including 1966's "The Sand Pebbles", for which he received an Academy Award nomination.
The movies mentioned in the clue are 1958's "Never Love a Stranger", 1963's "Love With the Proper Stranger", 1972's "The Getaway" and 1974's "The Towering Inferno".
And, while he was an avid racer, the car named Lightning McQueen in 2006's "Cars" was not named after him, but rather after a Pixar animator.

6. I know you're on the phone Mother, but do you remember the Titans? I was the inside man who had fallen, but I was unstoppable, and still found glory. I'm out of time, so call me back. Now don't forget - who are you going to call?
