Film Society...Shhhhhhh=3 hints to next week's film

Oh It is another month and another time for 3 hints to the film I have selected for next Friday's film society put on my Mock and the Armchair Squid.

What are my 3 hints? Well here they are (insert cute vapid looking gal with a plastic smile showcasing the doors that open to the hints)

  1.  It's a really, old, old, old, old, old, old, movie. Did I say it's old?
  2. It was a huge hit and made major stars of the 2 leads one which I discussed during the A to Z Challenge.
  3. Gum played a big role in one scene.
OK there ya go! Let's see if you can guess. Have a great weekend all:)

    1. Well I guess I'll jump on the band wagon, though I haven't seen it: The Big Parade?

  2. I don't remember the A-Z challenge, but my guess is, She Done Him Wrong, with Mae West and Cary Grant. "Come up and see me sometime."

  7. Tough one! Could it be "The Big Parade", from 1925, starring John Gilbert? That's the only really old film I can think of that features chewing gum. ☺
    Have a good weekend!

  10. His Girl Friday comes to my mind, but I think Russell and Grant were very big stars by then. hmmmm, this must be a silent film. Something with Harold Lloyd? When do we get the answer?

    1. Think matinee idol but not Rudolph Valentino. He had the hots for Garbo and vice-versa

  12. I guess the right answer has been already been given, but I would have never guessed this one.

  13. It sounds like a silent movie, maybe with Buster Keaton? I'm the worst guesser ever, right? lol

  15. Gum? Hmmm... The only old movie I know with gum in a scene is Miracle on 34th Street!

  17. My brain is not working but when is it,
    I have no idea.
    But I would guess any movie with the Keystone Coppers in it.

    cheers, parsnip

    1. No Keystone in any shot at all...poor Mack Swain but you have the era even if not quite the decade.

  18. I might have to see "The Big Parade"!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Okay, I'm clueless. I thought Miracle on 34th Street was a good guess by Armchair and Steph. It immediately brought Santa to mind.

  20. If this was a test, I would have failed miserably. Even after seeing the correct answer guessed above. Someone get me an application to McDonald's, please.

  21. I never would have been able to guess this!

  22. I guess I'm too dumb to pass the kobashi maru test either,lol. Burger King here I come.

  24. Oh man I'm not an old, old, old, old, old, old, movie fan so I have no idea. :D

  25. I'm racking my brain to recall your AtoZ movies, but I can't come up with anything!
