Wheeee! Two entries in a couple of hours. If you haven't peeked in here in a few days, there's an entry for 5/5 posted as well as today.

OK, folks. Here we go, strictly on a tangent. These questions all refer to movies/actors/etc that I've enjoyed, or hated, or found interesting, or in someway worthy of note. Drop me a note and I'll post any worthy comments. I've tried to make it so that regular readers of Internet Movie Data Base can't just search up the answers.

1. El Degüello features in two movies prominently. In one, the Big Guy gets it; in the other you'll find Chance, Dude, and Colorado. What're the two movies?

2. Where will you find a movie so strange as to have 'Death' utter the line: "You have failed me for the last-- hey, nice shoes!"

3. From Magua to the Sphinx, before acting he served 18 months in the 9th Division in VietNam.

4. Body count: 230. With retrospective nods to Peckinpah, one of the largest body counts for any action film. Gives new meaning to the phrase 'Tequila Sunrise'.

5. A wonderful under appreciated western, with the narration voice-over done by an actor who was formerly a bodyguard to Howard Hughes.

6. He kept saying "It's showtime!", but his 20 minute death scene really was a comment on his excesses.

7. Get the DVD version with Susie chatting along on the Director's Commentary. And of course Corky reaching up to fix the plumbing was suggestive!

8. I saw it in LA in 180o Cinerama, but on TV the three separate cameras each only give you a small third of the screen. The buffalo stampede just isn't quite the same.

9. And I still don't understand why they're all driving Yugo's!

10. Everyone loved him singing 'Fugue for Tinhorns', but seeing him with Nat singing about a cat, just made you smile.

11. He did the voice over for the commercial "Secret - strong enough for a man but made for a woman"; later he had the great line "We've got a blind date with Destiny -- and it looks like she's ordered the lobster!"

12. "A cock on a rock in a frock." [I had to throw an easy one or two in].

13. Later, she said, "You wouldn't have to get drunk to bed Catherine Deneuve, I don't care what your sexual history has been to that point." Her name, the movie she refers to?

14. In Ready To Wear, she walked the runway nude, carrying a bouquet, and extremely pregnant with her son, Max. You have to love her - she has this quote: "(on Céline Dion) Her singing is a hoot. And she provides absolutely no passion. She's a bore!"

15. You know who it is. In which movie did he say, "I won't be wronged, I won't be insulted, and I won't be laid a hand on. I don't do these things to other people, and I require the same from them."

16 - and for extra credit - she got an academy award nomination for her dedication to a junkie comic, but bottomed her career out singing to a bathhouse in the gayest film ever to refuse to admit it's gay, directed by Rosie The Bounty Lady.

There ya go folks. It isn't the hardest quiz ever, it isn't the easiest. It's just a bit of fun diversion. Do it to satisfy yourself, or drop a note if you wish. I'll publish the answers, and any particularly pithy responses, before too long.
