Collioure  (Level: 113.7 - Posts: 9952)
Sun, 22nd Nov '09 6:03 AM


I was supposed to finish first but the editors selected DaveGuth because he works for fewer moves.

Very fun puzzle - let's do this again!

Collioure and Mitchy, can you please explain what you're referring to? I sure hope this isn't another accusation of cheating. Coullioure, I'm guessing you're just making a joke I'm not getting. However, Mitchy, given your past comments, I think this is getting out of hand and I'm going to ask the editors to please have you stop this.

Suzc's The Big Screen - Almost

The lead roles were originally written for Tom Hanks and Winona Ryder. ("Jerry Maquire")
Marie Osmond turned down the part of Sandy for religious reasons. ("Grease")
Will Smith was offered the lead but chose to make Wild Wild West instead. ("The Matrix")
Dave Chappelle didn't like the script so he turned down the role of Bubba. ("Forrest Gump")
W. C. Fields was the first choice to play the wizard. ("The Wizard of Oz")
Richard Gere accepted the roles which were first offered to John Travolta. ("Chicago, Off. & a Gent.")
It was almost Harrison Ford hunting down the hungry dinosaurs. ("Jurassic Park")
The part of Axel Foley was originally written for Sylvester Stallone. ("Beverly Hills Cop")
Meryl Streep accepted the lead role after Audrey Hepburn turned it down. ("Out of Africa")
Katharine Hepburn, Lucille Ball, Bette Davis and Joan Crawford ("GWTW – Scarlett Wannabes")

It seems hard to imagine anyone else as Scarlett, but Lucille Ball sure would have been an interesting choice.
I can totally picture W. C. Fields as the wizard!

fascinating -- but how could Audrey Hepburn and Mewryl Streep have been considered for the same role -- must have been a LOT of rewrites!

If my comment doesn't make sense, there are two reasons:

1) I was dumb for thinking that Collioure was doing anything other than making a joke based on the theme of the puzzle. My bad.

2) A comment from Mitchy was deleted that continues to announce her displeasure with me. I have no reason why she feels compelled to do this, but I've asked her in a PM to stop. So far, she has ignored my request. So I guess it's up to the editors to keep her misdirected animosity in check.

You are right Dave and I am sorry please forgive me.
Also I didn't ignore you, I have not been on here since Sunday am until now Monday @ 12:31 am central time.
And just so you know NO ONE told me to do this-- I just don't like hurting feelings and again I'm Sorry if I did.
Michelle aka Mitchy
