Trivia Question I Flubbed

Paraphrased: name a film in which a father directs his daughter – that is, dad’s the director, daughter’s an actress in the film.

After time ran out I thought of guessing Bryce Dallas Howard and Ron Howard, but even then I was not answering the actual question…

…so without looking it up, can you think of an answer?

…WITH looking it, can you think of an answer? :slight_smile:

Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil - d. Clint Eastwood, featuring his daughter… Alison?

Sofia Coppola acts in all three Godfather films (though as a baby boy in I and as a uncredited child in II). All three films were directed by Francis Ford Coppola, her father.

Prizzi’s Honor: John Huston directed his daughter Anjelica.

They were both nominated for Oscars for the film (John as Best Director, Anjelica as Best Supporting Actress). She won, he didn’t.

[He had, however, previously won Best Director for Treasure of the Sierra Madre, in which he directed his father, Walter, to a Best Supporting Actor Oscar!]

OK, I suck.

Clint also directed and starred in the 1999 movie Absolute Power, which featured his daughter Alison.


i guess that’s wrong - clin t did not direct

There was that karaoke film starring Gwyneth Paltrow, directed by her dad. I had to look up the title - Duets.

The first pair I thought of was the Hustons, but I was drawing a blank on what film it was.

Terry Gilliam’s daughter is in Brazil as the daughter of Michael Palin’s character.

“Put it on, big boy. I won’t look at your willy.”

That’s almost a trivia question that I got right, “Name the only family with three generations of Oscar winners”. John, Walter, and Angelica Huston are all Acadamy Award winners.

You must have been asked that trivia question before 2004, Bill Door, because that’s the year that Sofia Coppola won for Best Original Screenplay (Lost in Translation), joining her grandfather Carmine Coppola (Best Original Score, Godfather II) and her father Francis Ford Coppola (5 Oscar wins in all).

Yeah, that came to me rather quickly.

I didn’t know she was in I & II, so I was thinking, “Did FF even direct 3?”

Had to look it up (I thought she had a quick appearance somewhere as an infant in one of his movies), Liza and Vincente Minelli “A Matter of Time” (which also has both Ingrid Bergman and Isabella Rossellini, too)

William Wyler’s daughters are uncredited extras in “The Best Years of Our Lives.”

Strangers on a Train – Patricia Hitchcock played the younger sister of the lead actress. She was also in Psycho as a receptionist.

Charlie Chaplin directed several of his children (including Geraldine) in small roles in Limelight.

That reminds me: Billy and Katie Jackson, the son and daughter of Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh have small cameo roles in all three LotR movies (hobbit children, Rohan children and Gondor children, I think). They are also in King Kong as New York children. Not sure if cameo roles count, though, there are a lot of them.

My first thought was John Huston’s last movie, The Dead. I forgot he directed Prizzi’s Honor.

I do not think that word means what you think it means.

She does – held in her mother’s arms in the finale of “In the Good Old Summertime.”
