Do these unique names belong to Star Trek characters or actors?

Do you know Blaisdell Makee from Jojo Krako?

Legendary Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry and his fellow writers had to come up with dozens of far-flung planets to fill the final frontier. And since many of these worlds were populated, all kinds of distinct characters showed up in the iconic sci-fi series.

It goes without saying that each alien had a very unique name, but what even the biggest Trekkies might not realize is that many of the actors in Star Trek also had names you don’t hear every day.

How well do you know the characters of Star Trek and the actors who played them? Try to guess if the names below belong to a fictional character or a real-life actor!

The art for A Few Dollars More is interesting. Looks nothing like them.
You are right. It looks like two different people. I picked it out because it was different. Though just found out now it is a: For a Few Dollars More (1965) British quad poster. I am putting up a larger one. I have no idea what Quad poster means.

When going to images there are a dozen or so different posters. Many in different languages and countries. They probably made their own for the theaters there. Here some trivia: Alternate versions
The British cinema release version was cut by the BBFC to shorten the beating scene after a few punches and to completely remove the second flashback sequence where Mortimer's sister shoots herself to avoid a possible rape. Although all UK video and original DVD releases contained these scenes, the 2005 Special Edition DVD was missing around 20 secs from the beating (which ends abruptly and without the dialogue exchange between Indio and Groggy). If you look at the history if cinema you will find many countries, England many too that banned movies and scenes for decades.
A quad poster is a poster to advertise a movie in Britain.

I do not remember this particular one but have some I sort of remember. Maybe yours is a East Coast thing. The Lobby ones I remember. I visited quite a few drive-in movies along with theaters when a child and later as a teen. I believe at one time there were 3000 drive-in theaters. By 2000 only 300 or so left. I remember going to the lobby to get treats like bonbons ice cream and other tasty treats. We had at least 3 drive-ins in our county. One was called Campus Drive-in. Had a huge like 50 foot neon woman Indian twirling a baton. It finally closed down in the 80's but they save the statue and put it in a mall. There are stories of this Drive-In on the net and photos.

I believe you are correct. I Wiki'd General Cinemas. Although it said they had a chain of movie theaters in the US from the 60's through the 90's, it was more than likely East Coast based. They folded in 2002, and were absorbed by AMC Theaters.

I was wrong on the number of drive-ins in all of San Diego county. List below. Probably been to half of them one time or another.

Movie Quiz 09-17-2021

Movie genre: Film-noir- Mystery-Thriller. In a shadowy location in a city and shadowy characters lurking. The musical score lasts 7 minutes into the movie and gives it part of the classic it is. It comes and goes during parts of the movie. Sometimes soft, sometimes louder. A lot of trouble brewing in this city and murder is in the air. Get your thinking caps on and solve this mystery. Either that or no Eggroll for you.

Let's roll into entertainment- Oh Yeah!

Betty Hutton - Murder, He Says (1943). Oh she's sooooo good.
.

Jaws Official Trailer #1 - Richard Dreyfuss, Steven Spielberg Movie (1975). Hint! Don't go into the water.

I loVe those Margaret Rutherford Miss Marple movies. The music is so peppy. The movies are so lame but fun!
Yes Dean was safe. Apparently he did his own thing and Frank respected him.
Thanks for the quiz and the clips. Great fun! 😀
We look for fun and her movies are just that. I have some of hers. I post for bonus or weekend in future.

Gotta love Sid Haig, rest his soul! This quiz? Shoot, I had to challenge myself a little. Did it half asleep, blindfolded, facing away from the keyboard, sitting on one hand, & running the "Top Secret Clown Business" monologue in my head, & *still* got them all right. Sheesh!

19/20. Sorry but even the most die hard Trek fan missed the memo on Theodore Marcuse. Thanks MeTV for another challenger!
bnichols23 Greg 15 days ago
Marcuse was easy for me (as were they all, really). Shame about him; killed in a car accident just a few months after filming Catspaw. :( He was a good actor.

18 for 20. This quiz is chock full of some of my favorite character actors ever.
Barbara Luna, holy smokes, a great beauty. She should have had a better career but like Rita
Moreno she was too often relegated to "Mexican spitfire" roles. Plus women who were the
leads in TV series didn't like her on set, she stole attention just standing there, not unlike
Sherry Jackson.
kevopilis 16 days ago
17/20. The quiz wasn't series specific, and I had to guess at a number of questions, even so, a fair score even for someone that watches TOS 7 nights a week. 7 nights? Yep- it's on H and I 6 nights, and MeTV
on Sat. It'll be a big mistake to ever change the schedule..
