Movie trivia contest - May 10

So, you think you're good at movie trivia? Every week, we give readers the opportunity to flex their movie muscles by answering five trivia questions from our movie critic, Michael Clark.

Congratulations to last week's winner, Andy Veazey of Lawrenceville.

Here are last week's questions again and the answers:

What is the professional, non-movie common bond shared by Alan Alda, Hugh Laurie, Kelsey Grammer, Matthew Fox, Denzel Washington, George Clooney, Katherine Heigl, Marcia Cross and Gillian Anderson?

A: All have played doctors on TV shows

Prior to "The Artist," what was the last black and white movie to be nominated for a Best Picture Oscar?

A: "Good Night, and Good Luck" in 2005

Name the first movie where Brad Pitt's character murdered another character.

A: "Too Young to Die?"

Name a performer that played characters that are included on both the AFI greatest movie heroes and villains lists.

A: Arnold Schwarzenegger (the Terminator) and Al Pacino (Frank Serpico and Michael Corleone)

What non-fictional writer appeared as themself in an Oscar-winning Woody Allen movie?

A: Marshall McLuhan in "Annie Hall" (note: Truman Capote also appeared in the same film playing a Truman Capote impersonator, thus technically not "himself")

Now, for this week's questions:

  1. What Oscar-winning director turned down the role of John F. Kennedy in "PT 109?"

  2. Name two non-fictional writers played in movies by Johnny Depp.

  3. What future Playboy Playmate and TV star appeared in "E.T.?"

  4. What brand of candy bar falls into the pool and causes big problems in "Caddyshack?"

  5. What alias does the title character in "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" use to secure a reservation at a high-end restaurant?

The first person to respond with all the correct answers receives a prize package of movie-related goodies, which could include promotional T-shirts, hats, posters, DVDs, video games and more. The winner also gets their name published in the next Weekend section. Please email your answers, along with your name to clarkwriter@mindspring.com. Include "Gwinnett Daily Post Trivia Contest" in the subject line. In the event no one answers all of the questions correctly, the person with the most correct answers submitted by 6 p.m. the Monday after the contest is posted will be the winner. Only one winner per household is eligible each 30-day period.
