I've never seen the movie, but a local theatre group put on a play version of this about 10 years ago. I liked it so much I saw it twice!
50. Pat and Mike (1952) I hope this one hasn't been used already. I didn't see it. This happens to be one of my favorite movies. Spencer Tracy plays a promoter and sports trainer who adds Katharine Hepburn to his small group of athletes. She competes in golf and tennis in this film. Highly entertaining!
Wow! Can't believe we hit 50! That's so great! Looking forward to the next round.
This is one of my favorite movies, too, and I can't believe I didn't already use it in this round! I must have thought I did, because it was so obvious. Perfect ending to this round, Erin!
So the next round may be more difficult, but let's give it a go. The category is movies in which a famous person plays him/herself. Dig into your vast movie knowledge and see how far we can get with this. I'll start.
1. The Glenn Miller Story - In an early scene, Glenn Miller (played by James Stewart) is out on a date with the woman who will later become his wife (played by June Allyson). Louis Armstrong is playing in the club. June's character asks who he is, and Glenn is astounded that she doesn't know.
2. Anchors Aweigh (1945) This extremely fun sailors-on-leave movie starring Gene Kelly and Frank Sinatra also features famous conductor and pianist Jose Iturbi playing himself. His character shows up in the movie a few times.
Nice one, Erin!
3. That Touch of Mink - Doris Day and Cary Grant star in this fun 60s sex comedy about a virtuous small-town girl and a wealthy playboy. He takes her out on the town to a Yankees game, and of course they have the best seats money can buy. She gets so wrapped up in the game that she insults the umpire over a call, which leads to an argument and the best players getting removed from the game. Roger Maris, Mickey Mantle and Yogi Berra play themselves.
I'd forgotten about that scene. Good movie!
I have this on my hard drive - if I can just figure out how to get this onto a DVD without it refusing to work in any player, I would gladly ship it to you. I'll let you know when I've done it! x
