Finally! You guys are so good, I barely can jump in.

I've collected quite a few trivia questions. So, since I might not get back in for a while, I've listed 3 of my favorites from The Graduate. Getting 2 of 3 approximately right makes you a winner.

We all know the story of Dustin Hoffman has an affair with his girlfriend's mother, Anne Bancroft.

1. What is the real-life age difference between Dustin and Bancroft?

2. What was Dustin paid for his role in the Graduate?

3. My first role was as a bit actor in The Graduate. My role was to poke my head into Dustin's room and say one line and disappear (3+ seconds max). Ironically, I won a Best Actor Oscar before Dustin! Who am I?

The age difference is more then 5 or 6 years. As to salary no idea but a guess would be less then 25,000.00 as he was an unknown at the time

2awesom and J3: I guess I didn't think of what to do when 2 guys answer the questions. So I'll post the answers (interesting stuff) and a tie-breaker question.

Age difference between Dustin and Anne: 6 years - hard to imagine.

Dustin was paid $20,000. The budget for the film was only $100,000, but ran over. Dustin netted about $6,000 after his expenses on the film and was on unemplyment soon after,

Dreyfus got the Oscar for Goodbye Girl before Dustin got his.

Tie-Breaker Question: What is the connection between Dog Day Afternoon and Rocky Horror Picture Show?

LOL, this movie was just on a few days ago. The brothers names were Randolph and Mortimer. One was played by Don Ameche and the other was Ralph Bellamy (I think).

There was a movie from the early 80ís called Prime Cut. It starred Lee Marvin and Gene Hackman, but it was also the first movie for a famous actress (gee, is it politically correct to say actress, not actor?). Who was the actress? Also, the chase scene was unique for the vehicle that was used. Extra credit for the vehicle.

Ok, itís been almost 2 days and not a nibble, so hereís a hint. She's probably most famous for playing a prom queen. In another role, her father was employed as a coal miner.

It was a combine, lol. Lee Marvin was driving this big Caddy through a cornfield being chased by the bad guys driving this big piece of farm equipment. Great movie. Gene Hackman had his enemies made into sausage too, lol. You'll probably never see it on TV because of the nudity and women getting sold into slavery angle.
