Yes, it is. I can tell you that it was made in 1944 and starred a couple who had a famous romance.

Must. Not. Google.

It's not a Bogie & Bacall movie, is it?

All I know is Peter Falk had an almost identical line in "Murder By Death" where he played a Bogart-type detective.

It isn't Murder By Death but I know what you mean Teral. I can't remember it either.

Here's the paragraph again, there are 5 references:
"You do know how to whistle don't you?" she asked the newspaper photographer, Peter.
"Well..." At that moment a bunch of cowboys came crashing through the door engaged in a bout of fisticuffs. Peter managed to escape by cross dressing and headed for Miami. When there he staged a daring gold heist.

But used in the same sentance with the "woman showing tupperware", it's obviously Airplane.

I'll pass.  I was heading towards The Big Sleep, and I still would have been wrong.

The next turn is open.

Scout sang "Jerusalem" to herself as she tapdanced down the cobbled street. She watched the nuns playing tennis for a while, then trudged through the Irish slums in broken shoes. When she arrived home, she found a donkey on her doorstep, and as she walked in the door she found a necklace in her husband's coat pocket.

7 references. Happy guessing!

"...and as she walked in the door she found a necklace in her husband's coat pocket." = Love Actually?

"Tapdanced down cobbled street" should be Singin' In The Rain.

Yep!

And Faze... well, I suppose it could be. It wasn't the reference that I was originally thinking of, so am I supposed to give you the point anyway, or not?

Zed85: 1 point

Sure Dolcelannah, why not, I'm not gonna get any of the other ones!
Unless someone gets the real reference of course.

Yes, yes and yes.  smile And ok, ~FazeShift~, I'll give you the point.  big grin But until someone gets one of the last two, we have a 5-way tie!

Zed85: 1 (necklace in coat pocket = Love Actually)
~FazeShift~: 1 (tapdancing down cobbled street = Singin' In The Rain)
alenacat: 1 (Scout = To Kill A Mockingbird)
Coilette: 1 (donkey on doorstep = Shrek)
Mr. Potter: 1 (Irish slums, broken shoes = Angela's Ashes)

Two left!

"She watched the nuns playing tennis for a while" = perhaps a reference to the mimes playing tennis at the end of Blow Up?

Nope, not even close.  smile Alright, it's been ages. I think it's time for a clue. Both movies with the last two references in them are fairly recent (from the last five years) and both were shot in Europe.
