It's true. Some movie fans just finally got fed up.

Got him! It's M. Night Shyamalan, and the web site is http://www.mnightschool.org/ . I just made a small donation.

New question. What was the first movie sequel to win a best picture Oscar?

Trivia answer: Godfather II.

$9.17. Ten dollars would have been ostentatious.

The ball-playing actor is Kurt Russell.

What role did Jane Alexander play on Broadway that Jill Clayburgh played in the movie version?

Ruth Loomis, the first female Supreme Court Justice, in First Monday in October.

What 1932 Broadway musical had the letter "e" added to its title for the movie version?

Gay Divorce by Cole Porter. It had a "The" added at the start of the movie title, too! (And an acute accent in there as well, if we're going to get fussy.) Otherwise known to the production code as "There's nothing funny about divorce, but if it's already happened, no harm in having a good time."

Staying on the subject of this same musical, a 3-parter:

(1) The stage show and the movie both have full musical scores, with only one song in common. What is its title?

(2) Which song from the movie won an Academy Award?

(3) What special place in Oscar history does that award have?

That's "Night and Day"...just as haunting now as it was in 1932.

((2) Which song from the movie won an Academy Award?

"The Continental"

((3) What special place in Oscar history does that award have?

It was the first to win the Best Original Song Award, given for the first time in 1934.

New question. "The Continental" lasts 17 and a half minutes, which held the record for 17 years for the longest musical number in a movie, until it was supplanted by another number that ran one minute longer. What number in what movie?

Well, there's always "Ab Tumhare Hawale Watan Saathiyon" in a Bollywood movie of the same name, at 20 minutes, but I'm sure that's not the answer you want.

Ha, maybe that would have been a good question about the current longest number. But it doesn't fit the question asked (duration, date).
