Attention Puny Earthlings! A Special Announcement Follows…

BLONDE BOMBSHELL ON THE PROWL: Is this any way to start a special broadcast? You bet it is, especially if you’re trying to cut through the dreary malaise to which the internet has been privy these past few months. Hey World, stop being so glum and party like it’s Saturday night at Hef’s.

BRAINTEASER TO SEE WHO’S STILL WITH US…

    …cognitively speaking of course. (Unfortunately this omits a particularly sad individual who is currently running/sitting/hibernating/drooling for office for the DMC, but seems quite content to spend his autumn hours neatly snuggled in what appears to be an oak paneled version of Luray Caverns where he is no doubt secretly biding his time with all manner of bat species to heroically and single-handedly solve the riddle of the pandemic. Or some such guano as that.)

    Now that we have your attention, may we direct you to the following head scratcher, an answer (correct answer that is, so keep your legal representation at bay) to which will grant the first smart cookie possession of the coveted CSR Culture Shock Award, which-  as it happens  -is a timely substitute for masking, hand washing and social distancing. It won’t protect you from disease… but you’ll die with intellectual distinction. All judgments on the answers by those who wish to participate are final and not subject to discussion, as enforced by our very cranky sergeant-at-arms. Good luck.

AND NOW, THE QUESTION:

There was a film nominated for the Academy Award for Best Picture which carelessly featured a visible poster for a film which happened to be nominated for Best Picture in the preceding year. The problem was that the later film took place in a time frame earlier than the featured poster’s film’s existence, hence the anachronism.What is the name of both the film and the name of the film whose poster is featured?

I've been a puppet, a pirate, a pauper, a poet, a pawn and a king, not necessarily in that order. My first major movie memory was being at the drive-in at about 1 1/2 yrs. old seeing "Sayonara" so I suppose an interest in film was inevitable. (For those scoring at home- good for you- I wasn't driving that evening, so no need to alert authorities.)Writer, critic and confessed spoiler of women, as I have a tendency to forget to put them back in the refrigerator. My apologies.

    This is like the killer sudoku of movie-trivia questions. I had a couple of guesses but they turned out to be wrong. It’s too many for me.

    I am not going to mess around, or even attempt to blatantly cheat.
    You are far too smart for me, and I don’t have even an inkling of the answer.
    I’m not even 100% what my own name is at the moment, to be honest.
    Best wishes, D. J. Trump.
