>In name of red herrings, wasn't there one in which Marcel Marceau speaks the only line, that is, Mel Brooks' 1976 Silent Movie?

Yes, there was. But, no that's not the movie (just to save time).

Great question - I actually had to look this up to confirm. But yes indeed, it was produced by a major studio.

Recap:

Recap:
Before 1974.
Did NOT win an Oscar.
Color.
A "talkie" (sound)
American.
It is NOT a musical.
It was NOT made before 1961. (So you can narrow the years down now)
It does not have gun fights.
It's not "Silent Movie."
It was produced by major studio.

I can give a hint in the morning if enough people want one...

There are some questions that still need to be asked that would help you narrow it down a bit further. Think about those thinggies that GreenCine offers by mail...

Another hint: Even though we've established it's not a musical, there is a music connection to it.

Basically, yes.

Nope, not about.

Another recap:

It is from the 1970s and before 1972.
It did NOT win an Oscar.
> Color.

It was produced by major studio.
It is basically an action movie.
It is not about a musician or band.
The lead character is not female.

There is one very obvious question that I'm surprised no one's asked here yet, given there is at least one whole ongoing thread here devoted to the subject.

Nope, definitely not horror.

That wasn't the question I was thinking of but still good to clarify. It's a basic question you're always interested in...
