|James Taylor -- folk singer, or pop singer cum light-FM staple? Discuss.|
Yes, that was Laurie Bird last week as she appeared in the great American existentialist masterpiece, Monte Hellman's Two-Lane Blacktop. (An absolute must-see if you haven't.) And while her two co-stars were singers (Dennis "I'm not Brian" Wilson and James Taylor), the folksters Filmbrain had in mind were the boys from Queens - Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel. Bird was living with Garfunkel when she committed suicide at the age of twenty-five, and she appeared as Tony Lacey's (Simon) girlfriend in Annie Hall. Did she have any lines?
Working with the auditing firm of PricewaterhouseCoopers, Filmbrain has tallied up all the entries for Round 4, including the bonus points. With an impressive 13 out of a possible 14 points, the first prize goes (once again) to über-cineaste and Premiere critic Aaron Hillis. Nudging ahead of the pack for second place (thanks to last week's answer) is harakiwi (initials NN). Congratulations to the both of you -- any DVD used in this round is yours for the asking.
Third place is going to be more of a challenge -- there are a huge handful of you with a total of 10 points, including former winner Matthew "Esoteric Rabbit" Clayfield. The contest is still open to everybody, so even those with fewer than 10 points can still pull ahead to victory.
For the first tiebreaker -- difficult? Easy? Who can say. . . Send your answers to this address. Good luck!
