One of the cast members won an Oscar® for this film.

The Accidental Tourist? Based on your clues, there are only two other possibilities, and I have essentially ruled out the other two, though I don't like this answer very much.

One cast member won multiple Grammys and MTV Video Music Awards in the 1980s.

'Round Midnight

Herbie Hancock is the cast member that won an oscar for the film (original score).

Is Bobby McFerrin the one that won Grammys and VMAs?

(The title isn't listed with an apostrophe in this shot from the trailer, nor is it on the poster art, but it is on the movie's title card).

The WTC in the second shot is an anachronism; the movie is set around 1959.

That's Lonette McKee (The Cotton Club, Malcolm X) in the fourth shot.

The movie poster in the fifth shot is a clever fake/composite as far as I can tell; the cast is from Merrill's Marauder's except for Jack Palance, who starred with Jeff Chandler in Ten Seconds to Hell. IMDB doesn't list an entry for a movie called Enfer en birmanie ("Hell in Burma", I think) that I could find, and The Glory Brigade is a 1953 movie with a completely different cast.

No, that was Hancock too, with three Grammys and five VMAs.



The VMAs (watch them tonight!) were all for the Godley-and-Creme-directed Rockit:

Best Concept Video
Best Special Effects
Best Art Direction
Best Editing
Most Experimental Video

Hancock surely wasn't wholly responsible for all of these creative results but the awards were given to him alone.

I had thought that Dexter Gordon might hold some sort of record for Best Actor Oscar nominees, with just four credited film appearances, but I forgot about James Dean with three. I don't think anyone has any fewer than three, to they?



Fact of the day: Gordon was the godfather of Metallica's Lars Ulrich.

Re: Guess That Movie By Screenshot: 'Round Midnight

... and if everyone doesn't mind, let's have that be the last movie for this thread. I am working on the new thread and should have it ready later today.

Rockmjd23, if you want to call wildcard you may go ahead and post it in this thread, otherwise you may post the first movie in the new thread if everyone can accommodate that.

Thanks
