  12. 12. "I wanted either an Italian-American or an actor who's so great that he can portray an Italian-American. So, they said, 'Who do you suggest?' I said, 'Lookit, I don't know, but who are the two greatest actors in the world? X and Y. Well, X is English. His face is great.' I said, 'I could see X playing the guy, and putting it on.' [And] Y is my hero of heroes. I'd do anything to just meet him. But he's 47, he's a young, good-looking guy. So, we first inquired about X and they said, ‘X is not taking any jobs. He's very sick. He's gonna die soon and he's not interested.' So, I said, 'Why don't we reach out for Y?'“ The rest, as they say, is history. Identify X and Y.<br />one<br />
  13. 13. This film (Y) was initially distributed with X because it was the only way that _______ could have been able to make X. The reason being that the original film pitch for that film was rejected, so they pitched a double feature with Y, and the project was eventually backed financially by the original writer of the book on which Y is based. It often was overlooked as a film because whenever X was screened first, people were left happy and did not wish to be saddened by Y afterward. X and Y please.<br />two<br />
  14. 14. When the nominees for the 53rd Annual Academy Awards were announced, many in the industry were appalled that this movie was not going to be honoured for its make-up effects. At the time there was not regular category and winners for make-up were cited with a special award. Feeling that the make-up technicians deserved to be rewarded for the film, a letter of protest was sent to the Academy's Board of Governors to ask them to change their minds and give the film a special award. The Academy refused, but in response to the outcry, they decided a year later to reward make-up artists with their own annual category, and thus the best make-up award was born. Which movie am I talking about?<br />three<br />
  15. 15. X was written by lifelong bachelor Herman Hupfeld and debuted in the Broadway show "Everybody's Welcome“. It had been a personal favourite of playwright and high school teacher Murray Burnett. After visiting a cafe in south France where a black pianist had entertained a mixed crowd of Nazis, French and refugees, Burnett was inspired to write the melodrama Y, which was optioned for production by Martin Gabel and Carly Wharton, and later, Warners. After the film's release, X stayed on radio's "Hit Parade" for 21 weeks. Max Steiner, in an interview, admitted that X "must have had something to attract so much attention".<br />four<br />

  18. 18. There have been over 40 recorded instances of people suffering from the X Delusion in the U.S., the U.K. and elsewhere. Joel Gold, a psychiatrist at Bellevue Hospital Center in New York City, and a clinical assistant professor of psychiatry at New York University, and his brother Ian, who holds a research chair in Philosophy and Psychiatry at Montreal's McGill University,are the foremost researchers on the subject. They have met since 2002 with over a dozen individuals, primarily white men between 25 and 34, suffering from the delusion. They have reported that one patient travelled to New York City after 9/11 to make sure that the 2001 terrorist attacks were not a plot twist, while another travelled to a downtown Manhattan Federal building to seek asylum. One of Gold's patients was an upper-middle class Army veteran who wanted to climb the Statue of Liberty in the belief that doing so would release him. <br />seven<br />
  19. 19. X has described in the interview how he came up with the idea while driving from _______ to ________, stopping in ________ where he had been born and raised, and driving by outside his grandmother's old house, when he suddenly began to think about how it would be if he could open the door and inside it would be just as it had been during his childhood. "So it struck me - what if you could make a film about this; that you just walk up in a realistic way and open a door, and then you walk into your childhood, and then you open another door and come back to reality, and then you make a turn around a street corner and arrive in some other period of your existence, and everything goes on, lives. That was actually the idea behind the movie.” Which film?<br />eight<br />
  20. 20. The movie was banned in the Soviet Union (USSR) after being shown in Poland because of the unrealistic depiction that even the poorest Americans could afford a car.<br />nine<br />
  21. 21. X first came up with the idea for his novel Y in 1962, when researching 'The Man in the High Castle' which deals with the Nazis conquering the planet in the 1940s. X had been granted access to archived World War II Gestapo documents in the University of California at Berkley, and had come across diaries written by S.S. men stationed in Poland, which he found almost unreadable in their casual cruelty and lack of human empathy. One sentence in particular troubled him: "We are kept awake at night by the cries of starving children." X was so horrified by this sentence that he reasoned there was obviously something wrong with the man who wrote it. This led him to hypothesize that Nazism in general was a defective group mind, a mind so emotionally flawed that the word human could not be applied to them; their lack of empathy was so pronounced that X reasoned they couldn't be referred to as human beings, even though their outward appearance seemed to indicate that they were human.<br />ten<br />

  28. 28.   “The big prize here, however, is the addition of X's Oscar-winning short Harvie Krumpet. This Geoffrey-Rush-narrated tale of the titular Tourrette syndrome sufferer is a wonderful introduction both to X's sensibilities and to Y's specific tone.” Which film (Y)?<br />six<br />

  39. 39. The band was named by sticking a pin in  London listings magazine, Time Out. It landed randomly on an advertisement of the film X.<br />one<br />
  40. 40. Alien hand syndrome (also known as anarchic hand or X syndrome) is a neurological disorder in which one of the hands of people who have it appears to take on a mind of its own. Alien hand syndrome is best documented in cases where a person has had the two hemispheres of their brain surgically separated, a procedure sometimes used to relieve the symptoms of extreme cases of epilepsy. It also occurs in some cases after other brain surgery, strokes, or infections. Researchers at the University of Aberdeen who identified it named it X Syndrome. According to Professor Sergio Della Sala, the patients "slam their hand and shout 'My hand does things that I don't want it to do!'" <br />two<br />
  41. 41. In 1989, twenty-two-year-old Polish graphic designer Tomasz Sarnecki transformed Marian Stachurski's 1959 Polish variant of the X poster into a Solidarity election poster for the first partially-free elections in communist Poland. The poster which was displayed all over Poland shows Y armed with a folded ballot saying "Wybory" (i.e. election) in his right hand while the Solidarity logo is pinned to his vest above the sheriff's badge. The message at the bottom of the poster reads "W samopołudnie: 4 czerwca 1989" which translates to “X: 4 June 1989."<br />In 2004 former Solidarity leader Lech Wałęsa wrote:<br />“Under the headline "At X" runs the red Solidarity banner and the date—June 4, 1989—of the poll. It was a simple but effective gimmick that, at the time, was misunderstood by the Communists. They, in fact, tried to ridicule the freedom movement in Poland as an invention of the _________, especially the U.S. But the poster had the opposite impact: ___________ had become a powerful symbol for Poles. They fight for justice, fight against evil, and fight for freedom, both physical and spiritual. Solidarity trounced the Communists in that election, paving the way for a democratic government in Poland. It is always so touching when people bring this poster up to me to autograph it. They have cherished it for so many years and it has become the emblem of the battle that we all fought together.”<br />three<br />
  42. 42. The idea for X came from the director's (Y) youth. A pig castrator lived there who was known as a womanizer: according to Y, "This man took all the girls in town to bed with him; once he left a poor idiot girl pregnant and everyone said the baby was the devil's child." In 1992, Y told Canadian director Damian Pettigrew: ."I was directing __________, and Tullio had gone to see his family. Along one of the tortuous winding roads, he saw a man pulling a carretta, a sort of cart covered in tarpaulin... A tiny woman was pushing the cart from behind. When he returned to Rome, he told me what he'd seen and his desire to narrate their hard lives on the road. 'It would make the ideal scenario for your next film,' he said. It was the same story I'd imagined but with a crucial difference: mine focused on a little travelling circus with a slow-witted young woman. So we merged my flea-bitten circus characters with his smoky campfire mountain vagabonds. <br />four<br />
  43. 43.  ”That was an order! ________ assault was an order! Who do you think you are to dare disobey an order I give? So this is what it has come to! They have been lying to me. Everybody has been lying to me! Our ________ are just a bunch of contemptible, disloyal cowards. Not a shred of honour! They call themselves ______. Years at _______just to learn how to hold a knife and fork! For years, ________has hindered my plans! They've put every kind of obstacle in my way! What I should have done... was liquidate all the high-ranking officers!  I never went to the academy. Traitors. I've been betrayed and deceived from the start. Such enormous betrayal. But all these traitors will pay. With their own blood. They will drown in their own blood.” <br />What is this?<br />five<br />
  44. 44. Connect<br />six<br />
  45. 45. “The role of X in the film reminds me of Y's in Z. There is a dark side to this character. I think it's very interesting that most of the audience prefers to think that this is a very innocent relationship. I think this happens because the face of X is so sympathetic. Just imagine if it was John Malkovich playing this role. You would think, 'This guy is really weird.' It's the same in Z. Everybody thinks Y is a nice guy, so nobody thinks that his character is actually very sick.“ Identify the two movies.<br />seven<br />
  46. 46. eight<br />
  47. 47. Roger Ebert on the movie X: “I went to the movie because it was playing in a campus film series and only cost a quarter. I sat enveloped in the story of ________ for 2 1/2 hours, and wrote about it in a class where the essay topic was Socrates' statement, "the unexamined life is not worth living."' Over the years I have seen it every five years or so, and each time it has moved me, and made me think. And the older I get, the less _________ seems like a pathetic old man, and the more he seems like every one of us.”<br />nine<br />
  48. 48. According to author David Thomson, “__________ is the greatest secret in cinema...”.<br />X, explaining the idea behind _________, said, "It's a gimmick, really, a rather tawdry device, a dollar-book Freudian gag.“ <br />According to Louis Pizzitola, _________ was a nickname that Orrin Peck, a friend of Y, gave to his mother, Phoebe. It was said that Phoebe was as close, or even closer, to Orrin than she was to her own son, lending a bitter-sweet element to the word's use in the film. <br />In 1989, essayist Gore Vidal cited contemporary rumours that _________was a nickname Y used for his mistress; a reference to her clitoris, a claim repeated as fact in the 1996 documentary about the movie. <br />Film critic Roger Ebert has been a bit more specific than Vidal about the source, saying on his commentary track for the September 2001 DVD release that "Herman Mankiewicz, the co-author with X of the screenplay, happened to know that _________was Y’s pet name for an intimate part of his mistress’ anatomy." A resultant joke noted, with heavy innuendo, that X and/or Y died "with _______ on his lips."<br />ten<br />
