It should be "You're" (contraction of "you are") not "Your" :)

Also, it's "there" and not "their", and "could have" not "could of" :thumbsup:
Holy schmoly, I guess they're right, sarcasm doesn't come across in text. While you're at it you missed "its".
But he did use the emoji! How could you not notice it?
Sorry, I did indeed miss the sarcasm (and the "it's"). :facepalm:

I think there could be more dialogue if I don't put my answers between spoiler tags

2. Maybe "Dial M for Murder" but reverse psychology tells me that probably not since the 3rd question is about Hitch and that would be a repeat
3. Dial M for Murder; Rear Window; To Catch A Thief
8. The Philadelphia Story probably
9. Hitchcock again? Then my answer to question 2 could be right :lol:

I'll pay that, except the book is from 1982 so therefore the other answer was not around.

Ahh, I almost got that biblical answer. I was thinking "David and Solomon" but then didn't think that was the title of any film.

I don't really know much about Grace Kelly.
I know 1, at least two parts of 3, and maybe 2,8,10.

ROUND 3
REMEMBERING GRACE KELLY
SpoilerShow
  1. For which film did Grace Kelly win an Oscar? - The Country Girl
  2. Grace Kelly met Prince Rainier on the Riviera while making which film? - Her Hitchcock film was filmed near there, so I suppose that one - To Catch a Thief
  3. Hitchcock starred Grace Kelly in three films. Titles? - Oh, answers don't usually show up twice in these, so maybe the other one was wrong. To Catch a Thief for sure, and then... Strangers on a Train ? and oh! Dial M for Murder!
  4. In which movie did Grace Kelly play opposite Alec Guinness?
  5. Grace Kelly appeared in a remake of Red Dust. Film title?
  6. For which picture did Grace Kelly receive a nomination for Best Supporting Actress?
  7. Name the first film in which Grace Kelly appeared.
  8. The Grace Kelly film High Society was a musical version of which play? Gentlemen Prefer Blondes I think
  9. Who said Grace Kelly had 'sexual elegance'?
  10. How old was Grace Kelly when she died? - under 40.... 37?

Maybe, but not putting it in spoilers doesn't give other people a chance to guess without seeing your answers unless they happen to stop reading beforehand.

I forgot she was in RM. :facepalm:
And your answer for 8 makes so much more sense than mine. I think my answer already is a musical :lol:

Oh, so that's who David Frost is. Your guess came out in 2008, though, so it can't be the answer if the book was published in 1983 ;)

Haha I forgot about that song. Always thought a guy sang it, but I guess it's because of her smoky voice.

Also, this lead me to reading more about Bette herself and it seems we both got #3 wrong.
SpoilerShow
Dangerous was her first Oscar win, Jezebel was her second.
And I'm kicking myself because I was going to say Of Human Bondage was her big breakthrough, but I didn't think they'd use the same answer for two questions, unless she plays a slutty waitress in another film. Incidentally, I just watched Of Human Bondage a few months ago, so it was fresh in my mind.
Also, it seems we often know most of the same answers lol. I think you're still beating me overall though. :thumbsup:

(Jackie DeShannon co-wrote "Bette Davis Eyes," and this was actually the first version of the song to be released.)

I only know a couple of those Bette Davis ones, that I am pretty sure everyone else also knows.
