Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Which Jack Nicholson movie title is taken from a beginner's music book?

Answer: Five Easy Pieces

Nicholson received an Oscar nomination for his role in this. This is my personal favourite of his performances. The film details the middle age of a promising and intelligent musician who has chosen to bury his natural talent and work on an oil rig. He passes the time by indulging in a series of meaningless relationships until his life is rocked by the news of his father's impending death.
2. What is the name of the character played by Tim Robbins in 'Top Gun' (his callsign)?

Answer: Merlin

In this classic buddy movie Tom Cruise plays Maverick, a somewhat gung-ho pilot who is enrolled in America's most prestigious flight academy. Tim Robbins' face is only seen right at the end of the movie after the final battle. I loved 'Top Gun' for seven years before I found out Tim Robbins played that part. I was pleased because I love Tim Robbins and it was also a good link for the Kevin Bacon game!
3. Which of these performers has never played The Devil in a movie?

Answer: They all have

Liz Hurley was stunning in several saucy outfits in the remake of 'Bedazzled', the story of the Devil granting an average man wishes, all of which endup going wrong for him somehow. Gabriel Byrne was decidedly nasty to Governor Arnie in 'End of Days', the apocapyptic tale of a man trying to protect a child from the Devil. Al Pacino was severely stylish opposite Keanu Reeves in 'Devil's Advocate' in which Keanu is, unbeknownst to him, the son of the Antichrist.
4. Which of these actors has never played The President of the United States in a movie?

Answer: They all have

Peter Sellers played the President, along with two other roles, in 'Dr. Strangelove', Stanley Kubrick's classic in which an American General attempts to end the Cold War in a spectacular fashion. Morgan Freeman took the role in 'Deep Impact': a Sci-Fi blockbuster about an asteroid colliding with the Earth. Bill Pullman occupied the Oval Office in 'Independence Day' in which aliens invade the Earth bent on the annihilation of the species.
5. Straying off the beaten path for a moment, what was the name of the feature film made out of the 'He-Man' series?

Answer: The Secret of the Sword

This movie also served as the start to the later 'She Ra' series. He Man finds out he had a twin sister and that she was separated from him at birth by piggish bad guy Hordak. He Man must now travel from his home planet of Eternia to the staggeringly similarly-named world of Etheria in order to put all kinds of bad thngs right and turn his sister back to good. I've never understood She Ra.

He Man I get. He = man, fine. What does Ra have to do with being a she? If anyone knows please let me in on it.
6. Which of these legal thrillers was NOT based on a book penned by John Grisham?

Answer: A Few Good Men

'A Few Good Men' was written by Aaron Sorkin and details the trial of two marines accused of murdering a member of their unit. After reading 'The Pelican Brief' - a glamorous tale of lawyers (well, a law student and a journalist) actually fighting crime - I wanted to be a lawyer for a whole year.

Then I found out it's not as exciting as it is in the movies. 'The Runaway Jury' was the last of the three to make it to the silver screen and tells the story of jury manipulation in a tobacco industry trial.
7. Which of these is the correct version of 'Dr. Strangelove's' full title? 'Dr. Strangelove or: _____'.

Answer: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb

The late, great Stanley Kubrick's masterpiece stars (among others) George C. Scott, Peter Sellers, James Earl Jones, Peter Sellers and Peter Sellers. The film tackles the question of nuclear power using the Cold War as its setting. A maddened American general launches a full attack on the Soviet Union and, of course, panic ensues. Things are complicated even further upon the discovery of 'The Doomsday Device'.
8. Sofia Coppola, at the 2004 Academy Awards, became the first American woman to be nominated in the Best Director category.

Answer: True

The nomination was for the wonderful 'Lost In Translation', a story of two lost souls finding each other in Tokyo. She didn't win the award but she did grab one for Best Original Screenplay. There have been other women nominated for Best Director, just not Americans. Jane Campion was nominated for Best Director for 'The Piano' but she is from New Zealand.

Italian director Lina Wertmuller was nominated for 'Seven Beauties' in 1976.
9. British actress Emma Thompson received Oscars for both 'Howard's End' and 'Sense and Sensibility'. Which Oscars did she receive though?

Answer: Best Actress and Best Adapted Screenplay

The Oscar came from 'Howard's End' and the Screenplay from 'Sense and Sensibility'. Although these two films merit Oscars, I believe her finest work to date was in the wonderful 'Angels In America', the 2003 TV drama directed by Mike Nichols.
10. Almost done! One last Oscar question to finish off with. For which films did Tom Cruise receive his first two Oscar nominations?

Answer: 'Jerry Maguire' and 'Born on the Fourth of July'

I would have liked to see him win an Oscar for 'Magnolia'. I think it was the first really good film he'd done in a long while and it seemed to start him off on a run of serious work, rather than the loveable, and thoroughly enjoyable, yet uninspiring work in his earlier career.
