Might need to post a hint for this one. Seems pretty obscure.
Although, B&W films are not my speciality. ;)

I'll keep posting dialog and hints every so often. This one is geared toward the Turner Classic Movies crowd.

Cool, I actually enjoy the Turner Classic's, but this doesn't ring any bells.
They are also playing a ton of Oscar nominated features at the moment.

Good luck, gang!

Cheers,

Mike

Ted: "Put the flaps up."

Dean: "We didn't even have them down!"

Ted: "How do you like that -- I wonder what else we forgot?"

One of only a few minor historical inaccuracies in the movie. The flaps on Ted's airplane were actually down when they took off. Bonus question: who was it that really did take off with flaps up, and why?

I could keep on going, but it's time now to give this thing away:

Okay, Chris. Looks like this one is lingering too long, and just so it doesn't drag on for ANOTHER THIRTY SECONDS, I'll drop a few remarks in hoping to GET A LEG UP on this round.

My initial response to reading you clues was thinking about "No Time for Sargeants", which is completely the opposite of the one you are actually hinting, but due to your hints (planes....true story...Academy Award...etc) I'm going to have to go with one I saw sparingly probably about 21 years ago. (I managed a video store in the mid to late 80s so I ran alot of classics on the floor loop during the weekday mornings but only saw them sporadically due to transactions. We ran alot of Academy Classics Series and I think this may have been one of them...not sure.)

Anyway, your film is "30 SECONDS OVER TOKOYO" and is based on the documented events surrounding the Doolittle Raid. (The History Channel ran a few specials on it some few months ago.)

Shorty: "Ted! Ted! Hey, Ted! Ted! Hey! Put these someplace, will ya?"

Ted: "What are they?"

Shorty: "Sizzle platters! I got the phonograph in my ship but I haven't got room for the records. We'll meet in Chungking and cut a Chinese rug!"

Ted: "Okay, Shorty!"

Bonus Questions: What's happening during this dialog? And later on, Ted won't be able to cut a rug. Why?

What else? Mission prep. They are speaking in ad-hoc code.

Well, lets just say Ted's become a bit of a stumper.

Good for you, Jonathan! It is in fact Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo. This movie has been on my mind recently not only because it ran on Turner Classics the other day, but also because the 65th reunion of the Doolittle Raiders is taking place in nearby San Antonio in April.

Now for the bonus questions breakdown:

What's happening during the "sizzle platters" dialog? The air crews are getting ready to take off from the deck of the Hornet. Ted won't be able to cut a rug later because of a very serious injury.

Who was it that really did take off with flaps up, and why? Lt. Bill Farrow's airplane, the last of sixteen B-25s to leave the deck of the Hornet that morning, took off without benefit of flaps because the pilots were startled by an accident. A sailor slipped and fell into one of the spinning propellers on Farrow's aircraft, losing an arm. The mishap wasn't fatal, but in the resulting confusion, the flaps were cycled again which retracted them to the up position. Since they were the last aircraft to take off, they had the benefit of extra deck space for a longer takeoff roll and were therefore just barely able to get into the air without flaps.

Anyway, it's a great movie, one of my all-time favorites: Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo. All yours, Jonathan!

Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo... I've never seen it! Sounds like a very interesting flick though. I wonder if it will be playing on my cable network... maybe on the classics station that I have. We get some of the Turner Classics on occasion. If not then I'll have to request it.

Nice choice!

Mike

Wow! I thought of that movie when I read your first clue, but only because I sat down and watched most of it with my dad last Sunday afternoon. I kept pointing out the way the bomber would jump up and over the trees on approach, then climb from ground level to bombing level in less than 2 seconds. I guess I'm spoiled from watching more modern effects!

Okay, the conch is mine, so here goes....


Person 1: "We're goin' in there with nuthin'."

Person 2: "We're goin' in there like everybody else. Nine guys, no weapons."



I expect this will be guessed really quickly, so for a bonus: Briefly describe the basis for this dialogue.

Nope. Try again. (Nice try though.)
