        Hi Tim,I can’t see the new clue.

        I think though I now realise my mistake,is the Errol film – Objective Burma? :)

            I apologize, Lollie! & I did write, and thought I posted!, a glowing congratulations tributing how amazingly good quick you were at solving this (and other) EFB quizzes!! Somehow, though, it must not have made it up, probably due to occasionally poor reception I get down here by the Everglades!

            BTW, this animated quiz is not yet fully answered, however!

            Who, What, Where???

                Alas, then, Lady Lollie, I shall post more clues for those two remaining queries!!

                Regarding who that merrie executive at the desk is, who he’s speaking with, and how it is connected to Errol, please see the following video, where all the answers can be readily seen and heard!


                Regarding the question asking the name of the only movie Errol was in that had a title including an animal, here’s another (famously animated) clue!

                Arise, Sir Loin of Beef:…

                  Hi Sir Tim – Is the Errol movie with an animal name Cry Wolf? :)

                  ooops but there’s also The Sea Hawk,I’m stumped again. : /

                  • Gentleman Tim

                    October 16, 2014 at 1:31 pm

                    I am SO sorry, Lollie! I phrased that VERY poorly, even incorrectly!! … I wasn’t thinking of those two titles as “animal” titles, but rather as a reference to the human Sea Hawk, and as an expression. But, you are right. I am wrong.

                    Please focus, instead, simply on th Bugs Bunny video and how it connects to Errol – with its title being the name of an animal character!!!

                    Thank you!

    Tim, there are so many clues and to put them together – is a wow!
    Are there some misleading clues?
    Going by your post:
    In the 1950s a major Hollywood star “remade” one of Errol”s movies.
    What’s the name of Errol’s movie, the “remake”,

    the other Hollywood star: Louis Hayward as Captain Peter Blood
    or Richard Todd as Sir Walter Raleigh
    and what is it legendary for:
    When Peter Blood unwittingly sends some of his men into a trap,he decides to rescue them. They’ve been taken prisoner by the Spanish Marquis de Riconete who is now using them as slave labor harvesting pearls from the sea. With help of the Marquis’ daughter Isabelita he not only manages to rescue his men but also vanquishes the Marquis in a sea battle.

    The Virgin Queen focuses on the relationship between Elizabeth and Sir Walter Raleigh>

    Now I answered your questions you posted on top of your post!
    So how does Bugs Bunny get into that?
    Are you referring to TUZ and BUGS BUNNEY? TUZ being the Tasmanian Devil!
    And your pictures – I understand the first – Errol with fencing sword
    I do not understand as a clue:
    The football helmets, Roy Orbison, the cowboy screaming on the horse nor the Florida pic.
    I would say you need to explain your train of thought in choosing those pictures as a clue?
    Are they are misleading???

      Hi Tina. Regarding the Remake quiz, Lollie actually got that one the very first day. The “remake” was Distant Drums, starring Gary Cooper, famous for being the first movie to include what was later named the “Wilhelm scream”. The film on which it was based was Objective Burma!, akso directed by Raoul Walsh, who substituted the Everglades & Seminoles for the Burmese jungle & Japanese.

      The clues relate in this way: Errol is facing Gary Cooper in the top photo; those helmets belong to the Floruda State Seminoles; Roy Orbison sang “Distant Drums”; that’s Wilhelm screaming; and the original Wilhelm scream was caused by a Florida gator!

      The quiz(zes) related to Bugs, Daffy & Porky are altogether separate and I believe much, much easier!! Here is the thread for those quizzes & clues:

      Who, What, Where???
