That's the only one I couldn't pull. Now that I see it...D'OH! Awesome quiz idea ander217!!!

One of only a couple of movies on this list that I haven't seen, I would never have guessed that "Valley of the Dolls" alluded to drug use.

Sidney Poitier should've gotten 3 or 4 Oscars for "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner". Amazingly powerful scene at the end with Spencer Tracy, too, who IIRC died less than 3 weeks after shooting that final scene.

Tracy, Hepburn & Poitier; Three giants of the industry in the same film together! Marvelous!!! Though I was more in tune with Malcolm's philosophy than MLK's at the time, I acknowledged and respected the excellent performances of these great actors!
