DO NOT POST YOUR ANSWERS OR ANY CLUES IN THIS THREAD.


Here are the questions... Just like Jeopardy, if I put quotations around a clue it is very important.

1.) This actor took a different 'road' to fame after he failed to land the role of Luke Skywalker. Luckily he was friends with Mark Hamill who he told to audition.

2.) This is the name of Marion's drinking partner in Raiders of the Lost Ark. (Character not Actor)

3.) This famous foreign movie poster features a typo for the actor that plays old Ben.

4.) This Clone Wars voice actor gave Elaine from Seinfeld numerous meaningless task such as buying socks.

5.) This famous Star Wars actor also appeared in various James Bond installments.

6.) Short Round tells Willie and Indy to hold on to this vegetable before pulling away from Club Obi-wan.

7.) According to Splinter of the Mind's Eye, Luke remained a normal pilot in the Alliance for this reason.

8.) Oddly enough, the name of this famous Star Wars species was never actually said in the films. They made up for this in the late 80's.

9.) Indy says he owes this future 'ghoul grabber' a drink in Temple of Doom.

10.) The credits of the original release of the film in 1977 notably omitted this staple of the Star Wars cast.

Very challenging, Grak. There are a couple of questions I'm not certain about, but a couple hours of research has earned me, what I think is, a pretty solid entry. Fingers crossed!

Thanks for this great idea.

Cool contest. Thanks for the neat idea. You through me off with the 8th question because you said "Oddly enough, the name of this famous Star Wars species was never actually said in the films. They made up for this in the LATE 80's."

That's not correct, it was not made up for in the late 80s. Ewoks were mentioned by name all over the 1983 packaging for Return of the Jedi and in books and comics. Heck, there were even 2 movies and cartoon series by 1985 referring to Ewoks by name. I knew they were not mentioned in the OT, but I ruled them out since the question said "late 80's."

Other than that, great questions!

Good point, I should have said mid 80's but he got them all nonetheless.

I really tried my hardest to make these difficult. I am very proud of the responses I got.

Luke bust will be in the mail tomorrow. Congrats again!

I will do another one of these when I can think of 10 more diabolical questions. The next one will be embarrassingly hard to the point where you question your fan hood lol.

Thanks again to everyone who submitted answers.
