Ah! I feel a memory cell twinkle, and think I did see TLBN, but have almost certainly seen the scriptwriter one too, and can't think of the title. There was a Ray season at the wonderful Madrid Filmoteca (where I virtually lived, making up for years of big-screen cinematic deprivation in Jersey and Birmingham), and I'm sure I saw this. Damn it!

Hints: It's on the same album as 'Blood and Roses' and it stars Humphrey Bogart.

Brilliant Mr. Foyle! I know that 'Spellbound' and 'Strangers When We Meet' are also based on movies-I can't remember any others at the moment.

Your question.

Well, that one was probably more obscure than trivial. This one may be easier: Which Bond film did Kubrick do uncredited work on?

The Spy Who Loved Me....uncredited set lighting or something I believe.

Are there any other fans of I'm Alan Partridge on the board...the scene where Alan recreates the opening sequence of the film to bemused onlookers in his caravan is hilarious!

In the 1978 film Renaldo & Clara, where did Bob Dylan say that he wanted to be buried?

Dylan wanted to be buried in an unmarked grave.

I'll do another question....

Who was Stacy Keach a last minute replacement for in the 1980 cult film The Ninth Configuration?

Stacy Keach was last-minute replacement for Nicol Williamson.

This may be a repeat, but I'll ask it anyway. Name now famous film actress who debuted in Annie Hall with a six second appearance at the end of the film.

Total guess since I've never seen all of 'Annie Hall'-Meryl Streep?

No, Not Ms. Streep (who recently wondered aloud if Jesus would have ordered bombs dropped on Iraqi children while they slept).

Six seconds. Count to six. Right at the end. She was a nobody then, but you can catch her if you watch the ending. Now...a common name in film, with some recent success. I think she had an alcohol/drug down period, but she looks to be rebounding. Big name.

Probably best know for her role in an incredibly intense horror.sci-fi film. One academy award, I think, for film of the year a while back.

Also played a silly role in a sci-fi film comedy.

This may be a job for "Super Bobster".

Finally, one I have a shot at knowing and someone beats me to it! :o

But I have to agree with lapins - at least I think it is the right answer.

You are correct. Ms. Weaver it is.
