1) Favorite movie featuring nuns
2) Second favorite John Frankenheimer movie
Seven Days In May second only to The Manchurian Candidate.
3) William Bendix or Scott Brady?
Bendix. I always confuse Brady with his brother, Lawrence Tierney.
I've never done it but for the 42 reel version of Greed, I'd think about it.
5) Favorite Mitchell Leisen movie
6) Ann Savage or Peggy Cummins?
7) First movie you remember seeing as a child
The animated 101 Dalmatians. (So I'm old. Deal with it.)
8) What moment in a movie that is not a horror movie made you want to bolt from the theater screaming?
I'd say Medea's first appearance in Diary Of A Mad Black Woman except I saw it at a family gathering on DVD, not a theatre.
9) Richard Widmark or Robert Mitchum?
Widmark because he could play cowardly punks as well as tough guys.
11) Silliest straight horror film that you’re still fond of
The Brain That Wouldn't Die. It's both ridiculous and sleazy.
12) Emily Blunt or Sally Gray?
I know who they are but I haven't seen any of their films.
13) Favorite cinematic Biblical spectacular
14) Favorite cinematic moment of unintentional humor
The murderer's hysterical confession in Murder At The Vanities.
15) Michael Fassbender or David Farrar?
Farrar. I've missed all of Fassbender's ubiquitous 2011 appearance so far.
16) Most effective faith-affirming movie
2001: A Space Odyssey. It really makes the case that there's something bigger than us out there.
17) Movie that makes the best case for agnosticism
Through A Glass Darkly. No one does loss of faith like Bergman.
18) Favorite song and/or dance sequence from a musical
Two by Busby Berkeley: "Lullaby Of Broadway" from Gold Diggers of 1935 and "Girlfriend of the Whirling Dervish" from Garden of the Moon.
19) Third favorite Howard Hawks movie
Red River coming after Bringing Up Baby and His Girl Friday
20) Clara Bow or Jean Harlow?
Harlow. Clara Bow has never connected with me.
21) Movie most recently seen in the theater? On DVD/Blu-ray/Streaming?
In a theater: Headhunters. On DVD: Apocalypse Joe, a Spaghetti western
22) Most unlikely good movie about religion
The Last Temptation Of Christ. From the publicity I wasn't expecting it to be that positive about faith.
23) Phil Silvers or Red Skelton?
Ernie Bilko, of course.
24) “Favorite” Hollywood scandal
The William Desmond Taylor murder
25) Best religious movie (non-Christian)
26) The King of Cinema: King Vidor, King Hu or Henry King? (Thanks, Peter)
27) Name something modern movies need to relearn how to do that American or foreign classics had down pat
Create characters with the emotional maturity of adults, not hyperactive six-year-olds.
28) Least favorite Federico Fellini movie
And The Ship Sails On.
29) The Three Stooges (2012)—yes or no?
Heck no. I don't do cover bands.
30) Mary Wickes or Patsy Kelly?
Kelly for her shorts with Thelma Todd
31) Best movie-related conspiracy theory
William Randolph Hearst hushing up the accidental shooting of Thomas Ince on his yacht.
Vincent Gallo's The Brown Bunny. Most people hate it but I thought it was a powerful statement about guilt and loneliness.
33) Movie that made you question your own belief system (religious or otherwise)
The Crying Game. Do I have to explain?
