Half-Shot Contest #8: Your hint might be "Nick" or "Alexander"

What film is this half-shot from?

Since Nick Alexander won our last contest, you’ll find a hint in either his first or his last name… but not both.

(And Nick, as the most recent winner, you’re disqualified from this round. Isn’t winning a drag?)

    The audience certainly liked Bridges better anyway. But most people don’t appreciate prophets in the moment.

  • The Cubicle Reverend

    actually it’ll be Horace, but don’t tell anyone.

  • Nick Alexander

    Congrats CR! Personally, I thought it was from “Top Secret!” But I was disqualified.

    So, does that mean the next clue will either be “Cubicle” or “Reverend”?

  • The Cubicle Reverend

    I’d like to thank the academy.

  • Jeffrey Overstreet

    The Reverend has it.

    Nick Bottom, played by Kevin Kline, in “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.”

  • The Cubicle Reverend

    Midsummer Nights Dream

  • Martin

    I wanna say Ragtime.

    Maybe “Alexander’s Ragtime Band” is the clue…

  • Chris Hough

    Life is Beautiful?

  • Gary Scott

    Nicholas Cage film?

  • Jeffrey Overstreet

    Nicholas Nickleby was a great guess, because of the double Nicks in it.

    But no… neither guess has any direct connection to the right answer.

  • Gary Scott

    Ahhh, which one is “not quite”?

  • Jeffrey Overstreet

    Oooooooh…. good guess, Gary. Very clever. But nope, not quite.

  • Gary Scott

    Fannie and Alexander

  • Gary Scott

    Nicholas Nickleby

  • Jared Wilson

    fiddler on the roof?
