As an appetiser, see if you can name the film from the trivia clues:
1. In this classic Bogart romantic adventure, a cardboard cutout was used instead of an aeroplane, with midgets for the crew so it would look full-sized.
2. Director Stanley Kubrick took out insurance against an alien invasion upstaging this film’s release.
3. The boots Clint Eastwood wore in this movie are the same ones he wore in TV series Rawhide.
4. The final shot of Joe Pesci firing at the camera in this film is a homage to 1903 silent classic The Great Train Robbery.
5. The premiere of this family favourite was attended by Walt Disney – his first red carpet appearance since Snow White in 1937.
