In the Long, Long Trailer her name is Tacy not Tracy! She was named after her Aunt Anastasia!

4 out of 10. Mostly guesses. "The Long, Long Trailer" is a hilarious movie.

10 out of 10, with a few 'gimmes' in there...#7, the mention of Hitchcock in the photo (the other two films aren't Hitchcock), #8 (only one of those films has Lucy and Desi in it!) and #9 (only one of those films has Elvis in it!). Basic film knowledge will pull you through!

Hollywood today stinks, all woke garbage except for Top Gun Maverick. I go to movies to be entertained not preached to or lectured.

10/10. Fifties was one of the best decades for movies. 30’s through 50’s we’re wonderful. Like 60’s best decade for television. Pretty much all downhill after that.

6/10. Not bad. I have only seen Longn long trailer (one of our family's favorites!) And King Ceole. Never heard of the rest.

Now you have some films to catch up on! Executive Suite is extraordinary and has no sound track unlike Guys and Dolls which is a musical. You need to at least listen to Adelaide's Lament on Pet Me Poppa on Youtube. You'll wonder how those kitty costumes got past the censors and Adelaide's Lament is a jewel.

I agree with you on the long long trailer

9/10 Checked "The Naked Jungle" instead of "Separate Tables," which I'm still mentally confusing with a film that's nothing like the poster shown. It's been a long time since I've seen either. Lately I've been rewatching movies from the 70s and 80s.
I'm a bit embarrassed that I've never seen Separate Tables which won several Academy Awards -David Niven for Best Actor and Wendy Hiller for Supporting Actress and was nominated for more. Looking back at the poster I recognize Deborah Kerr who was nominated for Best Actress.

I remember Jon Voight being in a movie called Separate Tables. Was that a remake, does anybody know?

I think you mean "Table for Five." Imdb does not list "Separate Tables" on Jon Voight's film bio.

7 out of 10, I just got lucky, a little before my time, but I love older movies, the best of times!
