Back in the saddle: answers

March 9, 2011 in Movies, Quizzes

Time for the answers to the movie themed questions I posted yesterday.

A very enjoyable, if slow*, quiz and great value too at €20 per table.  Also, it featured the best table name I’ve heard in a while: Tequila Mockingbird! It didn’t have to be a movie quiz for that name to stand out.

Right, I’ll get on with posting up these answers as this is probably the busiest week in the blog’s history.  I’ve already got another four posts lined up – after this one!


  1. In the film Gone in 60 seconds, what type of car did Nicholas Cage’s character leave until last? Or what nickname did he give it? A> A Shelby** Mustang GT 500, codenamed “Eleanor”
  2. In the Godfather trilogy, Corleone is not the family’s original surname.  What is? A> Andolini
  3. In the movie Kelly’s Heroes, who played Kelly? A> Clint Eastwood
  4. In Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, what character does Steve Martin’s character invent, who has “a cork on his fork”? A> Ruprecht
  5. The actors who played the following characters all appeared together in which 1984 film: Oskar Schindler, Max Rockatansky, Daniel Plainview and Hannibal Lector? A> The Bounty
  6. In Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, what was the name of the ‘Sausage King of Chicago’ who Ferris pretended to be, to gain admittance to a restaurant? A> Abe Froman
  7. The poster for this quiz is based on a poster for which movie? A> Forbidden Planet
  8. Who was the lead actor in that movie? A> Leslie Nielsen
  9. Legendary actor Paul Newman starred in a 1973 movie filmed in and around Galway.  What is it called? A> The Mackintosh Man
  10. In the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy, what is the name of Capt. Jack Sparrow’s ship? A> The Black Pearl

The Man Who… round:

  1. Who was the man who knew too much? A> James Stewart
  2. Who was the man who knew too little? A> Bill Murray
  3. Who was the man with two brains? A> Steve Martin
  4. Who was the man without a face? A> Mel Gibson
  5. Who was the man with one red shoe? A> Tom Hanks
  6. Who was the man with the golden arm? A> Frank Sinatra
  7. Who was the man with the golden gun? A> Christopher Lee
  8. Who was the man who shot Liberty Valance (really)? A> John Wayne

We had a lot of fun during that round.  After about the second question, we started predicting what the next one would be.  Incredibly we were 100% right until the last question!

* Dare I be cynical and suggest that a quiz being run by staff of the venue would perhaps be slow so as to encourage punters to use the bar? Is that a rhetorical question?

** Shelby is important here.  Ford just won’t do.
