you got it right Jonathan. It indeed is from the 1976 Neil Simon movie, Murder By Death.

Your turn.

missed it!

This is one of my favorite movies! I loved Peter Sellers in his role as Sidney Wang. One of the best exchanges for me:

"I don't get something, Pop. Was there a murder or wasn't there?"

"Yes. Killed good weekend. Drive, please."

Yeah, there are so many great lines from that movie. But what else would you expect when you have a cast that includes Peter Sellers, David Niven, Alec Guinness, Peter Falk and Truman Capote. The exchanges that they have are incredible. I would have loved to be on the set to watch all of them interact with each other as they were working.

Here's a bonus question. What other movie had Peter Sellers and David Niven along with another American born Author in it?

Ooh! The Pink Panther.....um....Revenge of the Pink Panther? No! The Pink Panther Strikes Again? As for the author, I don't know.

I was going to 2nd the Pink Panther. I am pretty sure that Niven played a role that was reprised by someone else in the sequels.

But the first one that came to mind for me was "Casino Royale". As I recall, there were a few variations of "Bond" in that one - even one played by Woody Allen (as Jimmy Bond).

PS: I believe I am up to bat, so I will post a quote in a few minutes.

Good call Jonathan. It was Casino Royal. Orson Wells played Le Chiffre.

Sorry for my delay. Here is the new quote:


Character 1: "The fourth victim, Jonathan Masbeth."

Character 2: "I see. And the head?"

Character 3: "Taken."

Character 2: "Taken. Interesting. Very Interesting."

Character 4: "What is?"

Character 2: "In headless corpse cases of this sort, the head was removed to prevent identification of the body."

Character 4: "But we know this was Jonathan Masbeth."

Character 2: "Precisely. So why was the head removed?"

Character 4: "Why?"

Character 2: "Right." (pause) "You have moved the body?"

Character 1: "I did."

Character 2: "You must never move the body!"

Character 1: "Why not?"

Character 2: "Because."

Yep, according to imdb, the only other ones with the exact matching title dated back to the silent film era. Most versions included the full traditional title of "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow", (and a few variants) some of which were made for TV.

"Sleepy Hollow", the '99 version with Johnny Depp, it is.

You're up, Paul.

Quote 1:

Character 1: What have you done, [Character 2]?
Character 2: About six months... but I'm on probation, so it's all good, baby!
Character 1: No, I mean, what do you do best?
Character 2: I can't do that here. That's why they put me away, baby!

Quote 2:

Character 3: I am the author. You are the audience. I outrank you!

I know I've seen this, but I can't place it exactly.

It wouldn't happen to be "Waiting for Guffman" would it? (The scene in which the director is recruiting the young man at the auto shop? - although I doubt myself because the term "baby" seems out of place for the character.)
