Regardless of where you live, whether they're domestic or foreign imports, movies have played a big impact upon our lives.
In Hollywood, USA; two major studios and several classic films are celebrating milestone anniversaries this year.
From the clues below, can you identify everybody?
NOTE: In the spirit of fairness, the two studios are first. The rest are movies.

01. This studio is famous for its original monster movies and Woody Woodpecker, amongst other things.
02. This studio branched out into television production when it acquired the Desilu Studios in the late 1960s.
03. The 1980s remake of this film starred Al Pacino in the title role.
04. Elmo Lincoln originated the role in the first silent movie adaptation of this classic novel, but you couldn't hear the yell until the talking picture was made.
05. "We'll always have Paris."
06. "But Moses supposes erroneously."
07. The first movie in this franchise was actually an adaptation of the sixth book.
08. "Shoot all the blue jays you want, if you can hit them, but remember: it's a sin..."
09. "I'm gonna make him an offer he can't refuse."

We'll pass the popcorn and reveal all next weekend. But for now, let's peek inside THE ANSWERS BOX and see the results from the June 23, 2012 Puzzle Corner.

You have six "sticks" lined up next to each other. Can you represent nothing by only moving two of them, without bending or breaking the "sticks"?

You start out with this:  | | | | | |
You move one to lay diagonally between the first two: |\| | | |
Then you move the last one to lay down against the bottom corner of the "stick" to its left: |\| | |_
And you spell NIL, another word for nothing.

Changing only one letter each time, and being sure to form a new word each time, here's how you change FOUL to PLAY in seven moves.
FOoL (01)
FOOt (02)
sOOT (03)
SlOT (04)
SLAt (05)
SLAy (06)
pLAY (07)
