Oscar Trivia! Question #28

Sunday, February 24, 2013

Q: This writer was twice nominated for Academy Awards® for his screenplays. The first nomination was shared with Stanley Kubrick and Peter George for Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb. The second was with Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper for Easy Rider. Who was he? (Bonus hint: He’s also the guy wearing sunglasses on the cover of the Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album.)

A: Terry Southern

For cinephiles interested in a sendup of all things precious in Hollywood, check out Southern's Blue Movie, an erotic satire of the industry in which the world’s most admired filmmaker—winner of a string of Oscars and awards from Cannes to Venice—takes on a new project: the most expensive, star-studded, high-quality, X-rated film ever made.
