Thank you Ian - thinking of an ancient advert, Do you love someone enough to give them your last Rollo? I'll share the Bounty with Richard. :fsbgrin:

More history:

The days we bedded. Married. Were happy. Bore Elizabeth.

You are half right Paul - although it's not A Man For All Seasons, the film is based on a particular period during the reign of Henry VIII.

Right idea, wrong film and no, it's not The Six Wives of Henry VIII. :fsbgrin:

Who was the mother of Queen Elizabeth I?

Both Henry and the actor who portrayed him ( he was also known for his tempestuous love life ) in the film were of Welsh stock.

PS - Plummy is there any chance of you replying to my query on the NTT thread? :)

Last clue:

The film tells of the relationship between Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn. The film title is based on the approximate length of their marriage.

This looks like another dud - it was Anne of The Thousand Days. As I have never believed in third time lucky, I'll stand down again and let someone else take a turn.

Plummy, you were nearest with your " Carry On Don't Lose Your Head " comment, so it's over to you.

I'll start with a clue - late 60's:

a) Lieutenant, in the next 15 minutes we have to create enough confusion to get out of here alive.

b) Major, right now you got me about as confused as I ever hope to be.

Crikey! Another one that I know, even without the clue. I'm going to leave it for a little while though, to give others a chance of coming up with the right answer. :fsbgrin:

Plummy, it doesn't look as if there are any other takers, so I'm going for Where Eagles Dare?

Yes - spot on. One of my favourite "older" movies.

Thank you Plummy - one of the few films where I am reasonably familiar with the dialogue. I still enjoy re-reading the Alistair MacLean books.

I shut my eyes and ran my finger along a row of our DVDs and stopped on this one:

A: Did you want tea?
B: No, I don't want tea.
A: Right, because tea is weird in America.

More clues:

I pulled you out of the spaceship myself. I kept you warm and comfortable and sat there next to you, until the men came to take you away.

Although we have this on DVD, I haven't seen the film and I did find it difficult to find a suitable second quote that didn't contain crude dialogue. :shock:

Mid 60's - all star cast:

A) When we get back to the palace, you must trim your moustache. You must look exactly like the prince. Can you laugh?

B) What do you mean, can I laugh?

A) Well, the prince has a very individual laugh.

B) Like what?

A) Uh... ah ha HA ha ha.

A) (demonstrating a second time) Ah ha HA ha ha.

B) HA HA HA HA HA.

A) No, that's too much bass. The prince is more of a soprano.

Good guess but not correct. More of an all star comedy film.

Ooops - forgot all about this. OK, let's jump to big clues:

1965 film with Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon amongst the star cast.
