    too! Lots of clues in it and you can answer it
    even if you know just the titles of the various
    early Bond movies. You can see the list for
    reference at this link and then answer this
  • Clue 1 This movie was originally going to be the
    first James Bond movie, but legal wrangles with

Question 35
  • Deviating from the usual routine, todays
    question is about an actress, but I dont want
    her name.
  • At age 13, she was on holiday in Moscow with her
    mother Marina Alyabusheva when she was spotted by
    a model scout getting off a metro train. Because
    of her age, she had to wait until she was 14 to
    model. In the picture below, she plays the piano
    in an old advertsing photo. Later in life, she
    did a lot of lingerie modeling work that gained
    her notoriety throughout Europe.
  • Asking her name would be tough, but can you tell
    me in which Hollywood movie did we see her most

At age 14, in a piano advertisement

    in Quantum of Solace, where she plays Camille.

    dude! Yes, her eyes are amazing, and perhaps
    those eyes were the basis of her selection for
    the role!), Debratna, Tania, Sameer, Anup and
    Mujeeb. Raji, I agree it was a tough one, but I
    did so to spice up the quiz a bit.

Question 36
  • Back to some more Bond! Clues are movie-based so
    you can get it if you have seen it.
  • Clue 1 This novel was the last Ian Fleming James
    Bond novel published during his lifetime.
    Released on 16 March 1964, it was the twelfth
    novel in the series. For the first time in the
    James Bond film series, the screen story bore
    little resemblance to the source novel.
  • Clue 2 James Bond does not drive a car in this
    film. This is the only EON Productions James Bond

Question 38
  • Another Bond movie in question. The clues get
    progressively easier as you go down. I guess clue
    3 will provide the time frame and hence make it
    easier to guess.

    film, without reference to any Ian Fleming novel
    or short story.
  • Clue 2 The name of this movie is the nickname of

    Jamaica where (between 1952 and 1964) he wrote

    the one you love?
  • Clue 2 While filming, the director of the movie
    bonded so well with one of the two lead actresses
    that he requested her to be his sister. Since she
    did not have a brother in real life, she got
    quite emotional with this brotherly proposal,
    eventually solemnized in the form of a rakhi

    movie that I admired a lot. Shia La Beouf stars
    in this one. One of the most famous dialogues
    from this movie is as follows
  • Harry Vardon to Lord Northcliff Let me tell
    you something. I came here to win a trophy. And
    on the face of it Ted Ray or I should carry it
    off. Not for you, not for England, but for sheer
    bloody pride at being the best, thats why we
    do this. And if Mr. Ouimet wins tomorrow, its
    because hes the best, because of who he is. Not
    who his father was, not how much money hes got,
    because of who he bloody is! And Ill thank you
    to remember that. And Ill thank you to show the
    respect a gentleman gives as a matter of course.

    during its original release fainted and broke his
    jaw on the seat in front of him. He then sued
    Warner Brothers and the filmmakers, claiming that
    the use of subliminal imagery in the film had
    caused him to pass out. The studio settled out of
    court for an undisclosed sum.

Question 42
  • I happened to see this movie just yesterday
    night, and was compelled to make a question from
    it. Here goes.
  • Clue 1 The lead actress was offered the script
    to this movie as a 30th Birthday present from the
    director. The director has to delay the start of
    the production because the lead actress was

    of thine enemy can be the warriors only concern.
    Suppress all human emotion and compassion. Kill

    God, or Buddha himself. This truth lies at the
    heart of the art of combat.
  • Clue 4 Total Body Count in this movie 95. 
  • Identify this fantastic movie, released in 2003.

Answer 42
  • The answer is Kill Bill Vol 1?.
  • Correct answers by FRANCIS, Mujeeb and MK. I
    tried to make the clues more interesting and
    not-too-obvious as the earlier clues. Good going
    by Francis, his thought process is worth noting.
    This is how I would like to tackle any clues that
    I am offered. Good job!

Question 43
  • Well, another one of my favorites, I missed the
    ending of this movie due to some damaged
    download. Anyways, here goes!

    there must be something better than man!

    a make-up artist received an Academy Award.

Question 44
  • I hope it is easy and tough at the same time.
    Here goes!
  • Clue 1 Brad Pitt was signed to this movie for a
    relatively small salary, when he was still an up
    and coming actor. By the time of the movies
    release, however, Interview with the Vampire The
    Vampire Chronicles (1994), Legends of the Fall
    (1994), and Se7en (1995) had been released,
    making Pitt a top-salary actor.
  • Clue 2 Bruce Willis took a lower salary than his
    star-status would normally entitle, partly
    because of budget restrictions, but mostly
    because he wanted to work with Terry Gilliam.
    Actually Bruce did the movie for free. It was
    only after the movie was released that he was
  • Clue 3 When I was institutionalized, my brain
    was studied exhaustively by the guys of mental
    health. I was interrogated, I was x-rayed, I was
    examined thoroughly. Then, they took everything
    about me and put it into a computer where they
    created this model of my mind. Yes! Using that
    model they managed to generate every thought I
    could possibly have in the next, say, 10 years.
    Which they then filtered through a probability
    matrix of some kind to - to determine everything
    I was gonna do in that period. So you see, she
    knew I was gonna lead the Army of the ______
    _______ into the pages of history before it ever
    even occurred to me. She knows everything Im
    ever gonna do before I know it myself. Hows
