Hello. It’s me Alex Trebek (or a close look alike) back again for another go around of Trivial Pursuit aimed at testing your knowledge of movies and the stories around them. For previous editions click here and here.
This time around we have questions featuring two of Hollywood’s greatest leading men, one of the headliners of the “method” and even one of silent cinema’s legendary names.

Bogie as a D.A. on the warpath is worth a look and if you’re not to sure of your Bogie titles here’s a clue. While not a remake, Clint Eastwood starred in a film utilizing the same title and it’s not Pink Cadillac.

I have no idea just how much truth there is to the allegations that are recorded on the printed page but with Flynn not around to defend himself it seems a bit unfair. It has nothing to do with whether Flynn liked his drink or the company of ladies. That we know he’s guilty of and if he were today wouldn’t deny.

And the answers are………………
