Movie trivia, advanced level

My sister Peg wrote and emailed out this evil, mean, diabolical movie quiz. Even though I've seen all the movies involved, my answer for half the questions was, "Arrrgh, I should know this, I hate you!" See how you do. Answers to be posted tomorrow--or Google 'em if you can't wait.



1)What was the name of the man Cat Ballou shot and for whom she was
sentenced to be hanged?

2)What was the name of the film producer who took Seth away in Cold
Comfort Farm?

3)What was the name of the book written by Baron Von Frankenstein in
Young Frankenstein?

4)What were the words branded on Mongo's Ox in Blazing Saddles?

5)What is the full name of the character of Partner in Paint Your Wagon?

6)What was the year which appears with "Oregon Territory" at the
beginning credits of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers?

7)What was the name of the Prince of Potzdorf in The Great Race?

8)What was the name of the play that student Clifford Anderson wrote in

9)What was the name of the bumbling military officer who led the small
army to invade America in The Mouse that Roared?

Bah! The only ones I've seen (and therefore have a snowball's chance at answering) are 10) on the Trivia (I want to say The Legacy?) and 12) on the quotes (The Producers; Max Bialastock; and assuming we're talking about the musical production and not the original Mel Brooks [which given you guys is a brash assumption, I know] Nathan Lane).

Hey, it's a start! Apparently the ship is the NSEA Protector, which I didn't remember. And yeah, the quote is The Producers; both versions are Mel Brooks really, so I figure either Nathan Lane or Zero Mostel is fair.

Funny given your "Sir Charles Phantom" LJ title that #11 didn't ring a bell. Mind you, I didn't get it either; but it is from the original Pink Panther. The Princess and Sir Charles. Your LJ might refer to the recent version, though, which I haven't seen and thus can't compare against the original for similar lines.

Wash your mouth with soap! I haven't seen the new one; Peter Sellers is and will always be the ONLY Inspector Clouseau to me. However, I'm really more familiar with Return of the Pink Panther than I am with the first one (which I didn't find nearly as funny, truth be told, though granted I was MUCH younger when I saw it).

Hehehe. I must agree--no one should ever attempt to be Clouseau, after Sellers. I love Steve Martin, but really. Nobody.

I haven't seen the sequels in a while. Must add to Netflix queue...

Those were the only two I got, as well, though I think "RLS Legacy" is from Treasure Planet, as opposed to Galaxy Quest.

You're right! Thank you. I wondered where I came up with that ship name.
