Poorly described plots (seven words or fewer)


#4121

Beetlejuice?


#4122

Are we talking about the classic three-strip process used mostly in the 40s and 50s, or some other association with the brand name?


#4123

Three strip process.

I am giving out a lead actor, because you jerks could have asked for it, :persevere: but didn’t, and I’m running out of time between D&D and the vacation:

Ernie Kovacs

This should nail it. If it doesn’t, you need more Ernie Kovacs. (it won’t really nail it, it’s kind of an obscure movie, and no one knows who Ernie is anymore)


#4124

Hey! It is a classic horror/comedy and it was done by Technicolor! Plus, it was guessed for a different plot above and this was in my head (and possibly yours).


#4125

It wasn’t really done in Technicolor! Technicolor! Plus is super different and you know it! And now I want a Zagnut…


#4126

Evil Dead 2
Little Shop of Horrors

An American Werewolf in London?

The blob
The wizard of Oz?
Beetlejuice

I do have to pack for our vacation now (pile all the stuff in a bag), and I admire the valor of you all.

I will answer extra clues that you totally could have asked for before!!!

I’m still not sure you’ll get it before we’re done packing for Disney. This was an odd one.

1958
James Stewart
Kim Novak
Jack Lemmon

(Feel free to Google it, it’s Sunday, nobody cares)


#4128

Well having googled it, I’d never even heard of that one before and therefore couldn’t possibly have guessed it.

Enjoy your vacation!


#4129

Go ahead and post it! If you want other players to guess, spoiler-text it. (I’ll just give it up before I leave, anyway. If no one actually guesses it from memory, you’ll have the prize @Drayven!)


#4130

For anybody still wondering, and unwilling to google for the answer:

Classic Horror Comedy Not Black and White


#4131

I didn’t know the film (and wasn’t really expecting to once the Technicolor clue was established) but I don’t think I was ever going to get there from searching either (and I did try), so that was definitely a tough one : )

Happy holiday!

Time for a new clue?
Time for a new clue!

Four Decades Represented By College Age Idiots


#4133

As (I’m sure you’d probably expect) win one bell, one book, and one candle. The bell is a leftover Christmas bell, the book is whatever you want from the clearance shelf at Barnes & Noble, and the candle is coconut scented and says “I :heart: Mom!” on it.


#4134

Thanks, @Phil! That was one of my rare impossible-without-a-search-engine clues. I felt festive and feisty preparing for our early-week weekend.


I know this isn’t it, but I want it to be American Pop (a rotoscoped animated movie directed by Ralph Bakshi).


#4135

Four Decades Represented By College Age Idiots

You are quite correct, it isn’t American Pop


#4136

Haven’t seen it in a long while so I don’t know if this even fits, but–Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure?


#4137

Sadly not. Great film though!


#4138

American Pop
Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure

I request a general genre (comedy, drama, etc. I assume comedy, but this could also be a heck of a tragedy). If you aren’t willing to give that up, I’d accept era, theme, or a headlining actor.

(I’m still around, will try to check-in when I can, but the WiFi is really spotty).


#4139

Old School?


#4140

(Nice guess!)
