ATK (Week 2)

Post by clt013 »

It's not a TD or the old SHC, but I am back with a summer diversion to hopefully provide at least a few minutes of entertainment while J! is in rerun mode. I wasn't sure what to call this - "Something To Do" didn't seem like a good idea when abbreviated - until a couple of weeks ago when I remembered the "Hal Gurnee's Network Time Killers" segments on Late Night With David Letterman. So consider this an August Time Killer. There will be four weeks of questions (one category each period) - play some/all just for fun or to score points (+1 for correct answers, -1 for incorrect responses, 0 for staying "clam"). Maybe the clues/answers will lead to some interesting discussions or perhaps this will prove to be a big nothing burger. For those who choose to play, send your responses (including numbers) via PM. Thanks for taking the time to check this out and apologies in advance to those who aren't excited by all of the pop culture (movies/music/television) and sports material.

Tentative schedule
Week 1: August 1-7, answers revealed August 8
Week 2: August 9-15, answers revealed August 16
Week 3: August 17-23, answers revealed August 24
Week 4: August 25-31, answers revealed September 1

Week 1 - Movies
Since the pandemic sent me out of the office to work from home in March 2020, I have watched (or at least listened to as background noise while working) nearly 200 movies - mostly via streaming services - that I had not seen before. The list includes award winners, so-called "cult classics", many "mindless" movies that don't require full attention while I'm on the job and all in all probably far too many that (like my TDs) were of quite questionable quality or just flat out awful. For each pair of titles below, name the actress (1-26) or actor (27-52) who was in both films.
[Examples: Caddyshack, What About Bob? = Bill Murray; Romy & Michele's High School Reunion, The Replacement Killers = Mira Sorvino]

Not sure how much "work" you were doing then, but thanks for the quiz! :lol:
