RE: War Movie Quiz

1. Removable chess pieces---Airplane Actor
Probably not what you're thinking of, but "All the King's Horses" from the "Monkey House" anthology where the colonel shot down over China with his family is forced to play chess using them as live pieces.
2. WW1 scenes WW2 scenes ----lead actor tells an urban legend about Captain Kangaroo
I know Lee Marvin was the one who made up the story. But the only movie I can think of with him having WWI and WWII scenes was the Korean War one, where they have stock footage from the two WWs. I can't remember the name, and it's probably not the movie you're thinking of.
3. Made During WW2, Considered a war horror movie---more famous movie with same area name, stars an American Icon
GI Joe, with Robert Mitchum?
4. WW1 Flying movie-----before a team
That's got to be The Blue Max.
8. A movie about infrastructure…..Cameos galore
Bridge Over the River Kwai? Or Volunteers?
10. Western or war movie---- villain later becomes a leader Mag 7 movie
I'm confused by the way the question is written. You're looking for a western/war villain who's played by Yul Brynner before The Magnificent 7? Does he count as a villain in The Buccaneer? Does The Journey count as a war movie?

2 is The Caine Mutiny, right?

Edit: OK, Caine Mutiny is wrong. Lee Marvin had a pretty small part, and my memory of the original officers serving together in WWI before getting the crazy new captain in WWII is obviously from some completely different movie. Never mind.

Is #2 Hell in the Pacific?

And for #3 I will guess Back to Bataan (1945, John Wayne).
(#3 could also be answered with Bataan (1943), starring Robert Taylor- a much bigger star than John Wayne at the time.

Any more hints on #1? Lloyd Bridges was in about 3000 war movies, so if it's not him, just saying that will narrow things down.

My next guess for #2 is The Big Red One. I remember Lee Marvin goes into WWII leading the same rifle squad he was first assigned to when he joined the Army, but I can't remember if that was during WWI or not.

Is #3 one of those Xenophon's Anabasis stories about people trying to escape from deep in enemy territory? 49th Parallel had some horror elements (and a portable chess set), but no Americans. Objective: Burma had Errol Flynn, but not much of a horror feel. Am I heading in the right direction?

While we're talking WWII movies, what's the movie with Rex Harrison as a spy who has to rescue a Czech scientist and his daughter from the evil Germans, and the second half takes place mostly on a train? (Not Top Secret, the movie Top Secret was parodying.)

I absolutely LOVE Bataan - I can watch it over and over again. No wonder it was considered a horror movie - it dumped the traditional movie conventions of a sterile "combat" atmosphere and put the audience right in the middle of the action - and of the overwhelming fear that was present on Bataan. It still holds up magnificently today - and I have it on DVD. :D
