So, a double twist - double as in two movies, and twist as in, you have to say what they have in common to get points.




The top one is 3:10 to Yuma, the second is Petrified Forest.
What they have in common is Delmer Daves.
By the way, my nephew was a stuntman on the 2007 3:10 to Yuma remake. wink.gif

The Delmer Daves connection is pretty awesome considering it wasn't what I was looking for smile.gif You win anyhow.

Here's a hint for the connection I was looking for - it ... may (be) beyond deduction.

Eve: I thought I was through getting involved with men who were trouble. Falling in love on a look. I can't look at you.

Mickey: You have perfection about you. Your eyes have music. Your heart's the best part of your body. And when you move, every man, woman and child is forced to watch.

Correct! Lately I've been revisiting older movies which I don't own on Blu-ray or DVD, this time it was Witness (1985) streaming on Amazon Prime. The photo, of course, is a young Viggo Mortensen as Moses Hochleitner, a small part. For trivia lovers this was his first movie role.

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 80

Surprisingly the movie still holds up although I constantly wondered why Harrison Ford's character didn't call for help.

Round 1 has now ended! Without telling anyone I decided we would have rounds, and that the first player to reach 25 points would end it.

The current King of the Forum is....Mr.G.

You can see the complete scores in post #2 of this thread. The ranking of the high scorers (meaning everyone with more points than me) is:
  • #1: Mr.G
  • #2: RUR
  • #3: (tie) dledmo
  • #3: (tie) Morpheo
  • #4: Kilgore
  • #5: Aliens

Round 2 commences now. My idea for handicapping high scorers did not generate much enthusiasm, so everyone starts at zero.

Good luck!

Thanks, Bill. Even though I'm a low scorer, with little hope of climbing much higher in the ranks, I don't see a need for handicapping. I still enjoy the game enough to keep playing anyway. Thanks for your efforts and also to the others who post challenges as well.
