Disney

 

The first film, not the first studio. But here's a hint, you're wrong either way.

 

Gollum in LotR?

 

Nope. Remember, Jar Jar Binks preceded him by three years, but it wasn't him either.

 

Dallas

 

Dallas ran for 13 years, from 1978 to 1991. Long time, but it still doesn't come close to the real answer.

Alright, that's quite a few down.

 

Good job magnoliafan, 1 is Stargate.

 

Number 3 is the stained glass creature from Young Sherlock Holmes. Everyone helped with that answer.

 

Number 5 is Wag the Dog.

 

And Number 8 is The Scorpion King 2.

 

Still haven't gotten the longest running television drama, but you're getting closer - it's a soap opera. And number 4 actually refers to Batman '89, not Adam West Batman or Batman Begins.

 

So that leaves 2, 4, 6, 9 and 10.

I liked this game so time for new questions. But first, here's the ones that didn't get answered:

 

2. If you look at this actor's theatrical film resume you will find five Best Picture nominees - and nothing else. Who is he?

His name was John Cazale and he only appeared in five films. He is most known for playing Fredo Corleone in the Godfather films, but he also had memorable supporting roles in Dog Day Afternoon and The Conversation before losing his battle with cancer just after filming his role in The Deer Hunter. All five films were nominated for Best Picture. I didn't count it, but technically he also appears in Godfather Part III (in re-used footage from Part II) which was also nominated.

 

4. Three of the most popular and profitable franchises in movie history have been Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and Batman. This actor had a small speaking role in the first films of all three franchises. Who is he?

No, it's not Billy Dee Williams, who appeared in a Star Wars film and a Batman film. And it's not Julian Glover who appeared in the Indiana Jones series and the Star Wars series (and also in the Bond series). The answer is an actor named William Hootkins who played the unfortunately named X-Wing pilot Porkins in Star Wars, the army Major who sends Indiana Jones after the ark of the covenant in Raiders, and the slimy and corrupt Lt. "Where You Been Spending Your Nights" Eckhardt in Batman.

 

6. What is the longest-running television drama?

The answer is Guiding Light. It first appeared on television in 1952, which means that next year it will be celebrating its 57th consecutive year on TV. And the show actually started on the radio all the way back in 1937.

 

9. What film contains the longest, unedited, continual tracking shot?

It was a 2002 Russian film called Russian Ark, which boasts a cut-free 99 minute tracking shot that runs the entire length of the film. It was shot on the third take.

 

10. What film was shown as the first in-flight movie?

The answer is The Lost World. No, not the campy Jurassic Park sequel from '97, but the original film which was projected onboard a flight from London to Paris all the way back in 1925.

 

Now it's time for some new questions. In honor of having just gotten back from seeing Quantum of Solace, I'm going to make this Movie Trivia: The James Bond Edition.

 

1. Let's start with an easy one. In the official James Bond franchise, how many men have so far played James Bond? Bonus points if you can name them. In order.

Six actors - Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan, and Daniel Craig.

 

 

2. The lauded James Bond re-boot, Casino Royale, was the first Bond novel written by Ian Fleming and the last to be bought and filmed by Eon Productions. How many times has this novel been filmed?

Three times, first as tv-movie with CIA agent "Jimmy Bond", then as a big-budget spoof film, and finally as a reboot of the official franchise with Daniel Craig.

 

 

3. The villain of this Bond film was played by Ian Fleming's cousin. Who is the actor and what was the film?

 

4. The character of Q, played by Desmond Llewelyn, appeared in 18 of the 22 Bond films in the official series. When Q first appeared, he actually had a name. What was it?

His real name was Major Boothroyd. He was originally played by Peter Burton in Dr. No, and then by Llewelyn in From Russia With Love. He was named after a fan who wrote to Ian Fleming after reading his first couple novels and suggested that Bond switch to using a Walther instead of a Beretta - just as Boothroyd/Q does at the beginning of Dr. No. After From Russia With Love, the character only went by Q and his original name was forgotten, though his grandson in the non-canonical James Bond Jr. cartoon was named Horace Boothroyd III.

 

 

5. Incidentally, what does "Q" stand for?

"Quartermaster". He was referred to as such in Die Another Day.

 

 

6. Before joining MI6, in what military branch did James Bond serve and what rank did he hold?

Bond was a Commander in the Royal Navy before joining MI6. He was given an official burial at sea for his fake "death" in You Only Live Twice, and can be seen wearing his dress uniform while visiting a military base in Tomorrow Never Dies.

 

 

7. What was the first James Bond film to actually shoot scenes in Russia?

It wasn't until GoldenEye in 1995 that a Bond film shot any scenes in Russia. The tank chase was actually filmed on the streets of St. Petersburg.

 

 

8. "Unofficial" Bond film Never Say Never Again is actually a remake of another Bond movie. Which film is it a remake of?

Thunderball

 

 

9. What brand of handgun is Bond (almost) always issued? Bonus points if you can name the model.

A Walther PPK. Originally, he used a Beretta but receives the Walther as an official replacement towards the beginning of Dr. No. The PPK persisted in the series until the end of Tomorrow Never Dies when Bond decides to replace it with the newer P99 model. Bond wouldn't go back to using the PPK until the most recent flick - Quantum of Solace.

 

 

10. In what film was James Bond first issued his now trademark gadget-filled Aston Martin?

James Bond was first issued and Aston Martin - the DB5 - in the third film, Goldfinger.

 

 

11. What is the Bond family motto?

"Orbis non sufficit" - "The World Is Not Enough". This was shown in both the novel and film On Her Majesty's Secret Service and was used for the title of the 19th Bond movie.

 

 

12. So far, who are the only Bond girls to have won Academy Awards for acting (not in Bond films)?
