    Yes it's really hard to believe the Col. Smithers actor was 39! His grey hair (what's left of it) makes him look at least 50, probably older.

    OK, here's the next question. I apologise for prioritising Christmas and New Year's Eve celebrations in the meantime.

    Within less than two years (date of release), a certain famous director, who did much of his work in Hollywood, made two films, each of which featured in a primary or supporting role an actor (m/f) who is by now known as a Bond villain or henchperson.

    Who is the director...and obviously, who are the actors (just to clarify, they are two different persons. Not the same in both movies.)
  • Bryan Singer... he gave us Famke Janssen as Lady Jane Grey in X-Men and best of all, Rami Malek as Safin, for which he will nab another Oscar nod :)

    Interetsingly, Singer himself vanished after controversy in 2019.

    I was afraid something I didn't know would come up, but it's not who I aimed at. Rather a while back...
  • Martin Scorsese - Joe Don Baker was in Cape Fear (1991), and Jonathan Pryce was in The Age of Innocence (1993).

    No, not that one either. To be more precise: The first release of those two movies was in two subsequent calendar years, and each came out before the respective actor's Bond film.

    I feel Hitchcock must have used Bond actors on several occasions. Obviously Sean was in Marnie and I know Karin Dor was in Topaz, but that came after her appearance in YOLT, maybe it rings a bell for someone else?

    Then of course Sean was definitely neither a villain nor a henchperson in Bond movies.

    OK, yet another hint: The director in question also made a really famous movie (neither of the two in the original question) in which yet another actor who much later portrayed a certain Bond villain played a murderer. Music by a Scandinavian composer played a certain role in that movie.

    All right, the director is Fritz Lang, the movie is M, and the actor who became a Bond villain (the first Bond villain, in fact) is Peter Lorre. And the two movies are The Tiger of Eschnapur with Luciana Paluzzi, and The Thousand Eyes of Doctor Mabuse with Gert Fröbe.

    I didn't realize that he directed the later Mabuse film as well as the originals.

    Congratulations, @Gerard! Spot on. Your turn, please.

    As for the Scandinavian composer, Lorre's child killer in M keeps whistling the tune of "In the Hall of the Mountain King" from Edvard Grieg's Peer Gynt, arguably the first leitmotif in talkies.

    I don't know if this one has been posted before, but here goes : What is the common link between DN, LALD and SP ? That one should be really easy.

    Sorry, I mixed up the movies. So I ask again : What is the common link between DN, LALD and SP ?

    Concerning James Bond, what makes YOLT unique?

    (Should be fairly easy)

    He never drives anything himself?

    This is in essence true, however not the answer I'm looking for @goldenswissroyale

    The only time he wears a disguise/make up to change his appearance?
  • BennyBenny ...OctobennyModerator
    Posts: 11,449
    Still not what I'm thinking of, and I guess you could include OP in the disguise department...twice nay thrice!
    Moustache in the PTS, gorilla suit, clown.
    Keep guessing. ;)

    Oh ye, that was a particularly poor attempt on my behalf!
  • BennyBenny ...OctobennyModerator

    Not really @Max_The_Parrot, it only occurred to me that he disguises himself three time in OP after your guess. Me thinks it wont be long before someone cracks this one.

    ­The only time he has someone pretend to be his wife?

    Not what I’m looking for. Also LALD and TSWLM would also fall into the fake wife category would it not?

    It is the only fake wedding...
    But I try something else: the only movie where he drinks a stirred martini?

    Again not the one I'm thinking of. I thought it would've gone off sooner.
    Keep guessing.
