I wasn't sure about Hoffman, because I think Nicholson also was in at least 3 best movie films (Cuckoos nest, Departed, Terms of Endearment). Ok, how about this one. We all know who the stars of Deliverance were, but who played the sheriff, at the end of the movie, who told John Voigt not to come back to his town?

Ken,

It's possible that Nicholson could be another answer, but I couldn't verify. The question referred to TOP billing, not just be in the film. I don't know what billing he had in the 3 films you mentioned.

Awesome, you're right; it was the author James Dickey. You're up.

Sis, I think he had at the very least Co-Star billing on Cukoos Nest and Departed. Not sure about Terms of Endearment.

Ken,

Barbarella is correct. Jane does a strip tease during the opening credits. My movie book says the film is PG, not X.

Check out Jane experiencing the "Excessive Machine" in this link:

A couple of other curious things from the film:

The band Duran Duran takes its name from the mad scientist Dr. Durand Durand

The village name of Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch was used as the password for Dildano's headquarters.

Close, DBAX. You have to take off the "g" and add an "s" at the end.

OK, 3 days is long enough for this one. The answer is Heston's invoking of the right of "Primae Noctis", or the right of the lord of the manor to sleep with the bride on her wedding night.

Next one: In the movie "Weird Science", one of the cool guys, who would always make fun of the two nerdy kids, is played by a now accomplished actor. Who was it? (Hint: he stars in a popular movie that is out now.)

Here's a 2 question offering from the Tom Cruise/Jack Nicholson Movie A Few Good Men

1. Twice towards the beginning of the film Tom Cruise
is shown having softball practice, both times he is shown
hitting, obviously using a bat. What bat was he using?
Keep in mind this film was made/depicted during the
early 1990's.

2. Same movie- What Oscar winning actor made a Cameo
appearance in the film, that lasted approx. 1 minute?

Cuba Gooding Jr. is the second answer. As for the bat, I think it was an old Demarini, but not sure. All I know is that they should have had a stand in for Tom Cruise when he was swinging, lol.
