Which Sherlock Holmes movie — ...

Your move: Basil Rathbone

Question: Which Sherlock Holmes movie — starring Basil, of course — has a floor that's a chessboard? Holmes looks over the second-floor balcony and sees the board. — Tawnya

What is the piece of music played over the end credits of Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Silk Stocking? It features violin and cello, and was also played by Russell Crowe and Paul Bettany in the last scene of Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World.    


Answer: As a longtime Sherlock Holmes fan, I was delighted to find not one but two questions pertaining to the world's first consulting detective. The Basil Rathbone movie in which a floor designed like a giant chessboard features into the mystery is Sherlock Holmes Faces Death (1943), read more

I've been hearing rumors that ...

Question: I've been hearing rumors that someone's making a movie based on Dan Brown's best-seller The Da Vinci Code. Do you have any info?Answer: Ron Howard is directing the movie version of The Da Vinci Code, a thriller that hinges on a conspiracy to cover up the marriage of Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene.

Has Julian McMahon ever been ...

Question: Has Julian McMahon ever been in the running to be the next Bond? He's the only actor I can think of who'd be as perfect a fit for the role as Pierce Brosnan.Answer: The legendary search for Scarlett O'Hara has nothing on the quest for Bond, James Bond. Julian McMahon, the charismatic, Australian-born star of TV's Nip/Tuck has been mentioned as a candidate for the role in the upcoming Casino Royale and, presumably, the next several entries in the 007 franchise. But as far as I can tell, just about every handsome, athletic English/New Zealand/Scottish/Welsh/Australian actor in the 30-40ish age range has been proposed for the part. The candidates have included Australians Hugh Jackman read more

Paul Bettany's Reality Rant


While he mostly stars in period movies like Master and Commander and A Knight's Tale, Paul Bettany still keeps up with small-screen trends. In fact, studying the history of the Middle Ages for his new film, The Reckoning (now in limited release), made him worry what future generations will think of us, based on reality TV. The mere idea sends Jennifer Connelly's otherwise placid husband into a frustrated tirade.

"I'm so frightened that in 2000 years time, some archaeologist is going to come across some video of a reality-TV show," Bettany says, "and go, 'This is what they were watching? Who were these f------ idiots? What were they doing? They spent money to watch somebody in their f------ room, sitting there talking read more
