Two Actors:

You name the classic film





Hints: The top actor is shown much later in the life than when he appeared in this film, and one of his co-stars (not shown) was much taller.

1. The other co-star was between 18 and 24 feet tall!

I recognized Bruce Cabot, and worked backwards from there.

The movie was King Kong (1933), and the second actor was Robert Armstrong.

5. And no actual time travel involved.

Second clue: As with the 1940 Pride and Prejudice, we're talking Academy Award winners, though it wasn't in this particular film that each gentleman won an acting Oscar.

6. Other Oscar winners also.

Two Oscar winners:

Christian Bale was the boy.

Paul Scofield was the King of France.

The film: Kenneth Branagh's Henry V.

Also in the cast Oscar winners Emma Thompson
and Judi Dench.

7. Once more unto the breach, dear Graybeard.

You know your movies and your actors.






The 1989 Henry V was, as you say, fairly populated with past and future Oscar nominees (including Ian Holm and Branagh himself) and winners, though the film itself only took the statuette for Phyllis Dalton's costume designs.

Trivia note: Judi Dench's real-life husband, Michael Williams, did some fine work as the soldier who has a crucial pre-battle encounter with the king, but the actor didn't have any scenes with his wife.

9. Welcome to DU.

You sure picked two good ones. However I don't think they have (as yet) appeared together in the same film.

10. Can't remember if we've done this one, but here goes.

Hats! We got hats! Though not necessarily in the movie I'm thinking of.

12. If I were going to get this ...

I'd have to cheat. But I do know the actor in the white hat.

14. Full marks, Graybeard.

You are not Halliwell's Film Guide in a cunning disguise, are you?
